When Warner Bros. and DC Comics unveiled their nine-movie slate that spans from 2016 to 2020, one of the project included in that announcement was a stand-alone Wonder Woman movie, starring Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice actress Gal Gadot as the title character. Everyone assumed that, since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set in modern-day, the Wonder Woman movie will follow suit, but new rumored plot details allege that the stand alone movie will actually take place in the 1920s.
Bleeding Cool reports that the first half of Wonder Woman will take place on Paradise Island, with "warring Amazonian factions vying for control," which all changes when a man appears on the island and asks the Amazons for help.
According to the site, this man will "not necessarily be Steve Trevor," who was Wonder Woman's primary love interest in the original DC Comics. Wonder Woman accompanies him as he returns to the world of Man, where it is revealed that the setting is the 1920s. The rest of the film will show Wonder Woman exploring this world, where women just won the right to vote, through her own perspective. A planned sequel will reportedly take place in the 1930s and 1940s, with a third movie in the trilogy to take place in modern day with Wonder Woman and the Justice League.
It isn't known how the studio plans on portraying Gal Gadot as both a modern-day Wonder Woman, and the same character from nearly a century earlier. It's worth noting that producer Charles Roven revealed earlier this month that Wonder Woman is a "demi-god" who was fathered by Zeus. Perhaps an ageless existence is just a perk of being half-human and half-God.
It's also worth noting that both Wonder Woman and Justice League Part 1, which Gal Gadot will be a part of, are both confirmed for release in 2017. It may be confusing for fans to see Wonder Woman in two vastly different time periods within the same year, but, of course, none of these details are confirmed yet, so we'll just have to wait for an official announcement.
