‘Wonder Woman’ Sequel Setting Confirmed By DC’s Geoff Johns

Wonder Woman Gal Gadot Patty Jenkins DC Extended UniverseDC President and Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns has revealed the setting of the highly-anticipated Wonder Woman sequel.

Johns took to Facebook this morning to share a cryptic image with a tease that reads “WW84,” confirming that the film is set in 1984. The events of the first Wonder Woman movie took place in 1917 during World War I. Check out the image below.

Patty Jenkins is back in the director’s chair, working from a script by The Expendables co-writer Dave Callaham. The script is based on a treatment by Jenkins and Johns.

Plot details for the Wonder Woman sequel are currently being kept under wraps. The film is said to follow Gal Gadot’s Amazonian Princess during the Cold War as she faces off against the Soviet Union in the 1980s. Chris Pine is rumored to be returning as Steve Trevor.

Kristen Wiig is on board as the film’s main villain, Cheetah, based off of the Barbara Ann Minerva version of the character from the comics. Narcos and Game of Thrones star Pedro Pascal has also joined the cast of the film in a key role.

Wonder Woman 2 is currently set to hit theaters on November 1, 2019. Make sure to keep an eye on Heroic Hollywood as more details on this project come out.

10 DC Comics Stories That Could Top ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Avengers Infinity War Thanos Marvel DC ComicsNow that general audiences have seen Avengers: Infinity War, nothing will ever be the same for the DC films. Avengers: Infinity War feels more like an event starring everyone’s favorite characters than a traditional movie, and it will be hard for Warner Bros. to replicate that feeling of excitement for their comic book movies. DC’s counter-part to Avengers, Justice League, didn’t achieve nearly the same level of success and now the studio has to think of a new plan to get their cinematic universe chugging along.

Fortunately, DC Comics has a huge repertoire of epic, personal stories to explore for cinematic potential. While Thanos may be more destructive than the villains in some of these stories, that doesn’t mean these adventures don’t result in real, destructive changes in the DC Universe. After forcing DC’s finest heroes to fight Doomsday and Steppenwolf, two of the publisher’s strongest villains, on the big screen so early in the cinematic universe’s history, WB may want to step back and focus on personal stories. Even if none of these plotlines make it to the big screen, and if they do they would all require some major tweaking, they are all excellent examples of DC’s finest work.
