Rumor: ‘Wonder Woman’ May Take Place During World War I

The setting for Wonder Woman is an important one. In the comics, she was first introduced during World War II, where she ventured into the world of Man and helped the Americans in their fight against Nazi Germany. There was a previous rumor that the film could first take place in the 1920s, with a sequel set during the 1930s and World War II, and the final installment of the trilogy happening in modern times. Though that has yet to be confirmed, a new rumor debunks the first one by not only changing the setting, but putting a twist on the narrative as a whole. More on the story here below.

Heroic Hollywood has the scoop that the film will start off in the 1920s during World War I, but then adds that the second half of the film would take place during modern times. The site adds that the character herself will be at least 200 years old, which would make her appearance more believable since we will first see her in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which is set in modern times.

This latest rumor contradicts the previous one which said that Wonder Woman would first walk into the world of Man during the 1920s, and would help the Americans fight against Nazi Germany in the sequel, with the final installment of the trilogy set in modern times after she has already joined the Justice League.

If the rumors are true, and the site reiterates that it is only a rumor, it makes more sense for her to be in the past just for a little bit, and then catch up to the present so she could be with her fellow Justice Leaguers. Heck, Marvel’s Captain America franchise only spent one film in World War II, with its sequels – including the upcoming Captain America: Civil War – set in modern times.

Now how will this affect Chris Pine‘s role? Half a film is a bit much, and if Pine is playing the rumored Steve Trevor, then as a human, the actor might play something to the effect of Peggy Carter in Captain America, like a character who assists a hero in the past, but appears aged in present day. Of course depending on his contract and the storytelling of the DCEU, we could see him as a young man in flashbacks.

Patty Jenkins is directing, using a script written by Jason Fuchs (Pan). Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder will produce.

Wonder Woman will make her big screen debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on March 25, 2016, with her solo debut as the title hero opening in theaters on June 23, 2017.
