Is Wonder Woman Taking on the Soviet Russians in the 1980s?

A mere five weeks after its release, Wonder Woman is still a tour de force in the box office, recently surpassing Suicide Squad’s earnings. Though director Patty Jenkins has not yet officially signed on, she is supposedly working on a story with Geoff Johns. It looks as though Princess Diana of Themyscira will be seen at heart of another major global conflict – the Cold War.

According to Screen RantWonder Woman 2 may be another period piece, as opposed to the present day DCEU, in the aftermath of the forthcoming Justice League flicks. Set during the 1980s, the film will send Diana against the forces of Soviet Union in the closing days of the Cold War.

Screen Rant is also reporting that Chris Pine will reprise his role as Steve Trevor. Given the events of the first Wonder Woman movie, discussions will be had as to how he will return.

What are your thoughts on a 1980s setting for the Wonder Woman sequel? How will they bring back Steve Trevor? Let’s discuss!

Michael E. Fromm is an all-around scrivener, writing screenplays (short and feature), short stories, novels, poetry, blogs, articles, and press releases. Since first learning to hold a pen, he has done little but read, watch, and write about characters and worlds of fantasy. It would be very difficult to find him without a pen in hand and an idea in mind, which is problematic for anyone wanting to have a conversation with him. Michael graduated from Rowan University, primarily focusing on improving his skills as a filmmaker and screenwriter. After said schooling, he joined an elite force of Rowan grads who also had the notion of becoming filmmakers. This group, known as Justice Productions, call on him every so often to write short films. And, until this whole writing thing pays off, Michael currently does development & marketing communication (writing, graphic & publication design, social media and website upkeep, etc.) for a web development company in Central New Jersey, where he currently resides.
