When we hear about origins story, most of the recent films have it set in modern times to give the characters a more contemporary feel. When Warner Brothers announced their massive DC slate, not only did it include Justice League, but it also included solo films for the Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman, and even Wonder Woman. Now, Wonder Woman, starring Gal Gadot as the titular character, will be interesting, not because it will be one of the first solo films based on a female superhero in the war of the Comic Book Studios, but that the film could actually be set in the 1920s.
That’s the rumor at least. Hit the jump for more details.
According to Bleeding Cool, the first half of the Wonder Woman film will be spent on Paradise Island, where the Amazonian factions are fighting amongst themselves for control. But all of that is put to a stop thanks to the arrival of a man. Here’s a little more info:
When Wonder Woman joins him on his return to the world of Man, we all discover that it is the 1920s. And the film will then show Diana exploring that world – a world where women have only just got the vote – from her”¦ unique perspective.
The report adds that sequels would be set during World War II in the 1930s and 1940s. The final installment of the trilogy would be set in modern times, with the Justice League.
This is a pretty exciting rumor that hopefully is true. Period piece superhero flicks are a nice twist on the genre, and look how the period-piece Captain America: The First Avenger did at the box office, and what that film did for the what we are seeing now in the MCU.
