Bleeding Cool is reporting that the Wonder Woman movie will be set in the 1920s as opposed to in the modern day, as most had assumed.
According to the report, the first have the film we take place on war torn Paradise Island. Eventually, a man will show up, throwing the status quo off balance with his plea for aid from the Amazons. Wonder Woman leaves the Paradise Island with the man – who is not necessarily Steve Trevor – and then, SURPRISE! It’s the 1920s. Wonder Woman then goes on to explore a world that has only just granted women suffrage, from the perspective of someone who just left an all-female society.
According to the report, the plan is to follow the first Wonder Woman up with a sequel set during World War II, and then turn the whole thing into a trilogy with a third film set during the modern day/Justice League era.
To hear Warner Bros. going the period piece route with Wonder Woman is a little surprising, considering that was the direction of Joss Whedon’s 2005 Wonder Woman film project that spent two years as an outline before the studio decided they didn’t like it.
Wonder Woman is expected to be released June 23, 2017.
