We’re all in wonder of the box office success of Wonder Woman, and the fact that this movie continues to shatter records while lassoing us into the wonderful and kickass life of the world’s latest heroine, Diana.
So obviously, we’ve all been waiting for confirmation of a sequel. Hey — if Spider-Man, Iron Man and The Avengers get ’em, why shouldn’t Wonder Woman join in on the party?
Well according to ScreenRant, this sequel is indeed happening. And not only is it happening, but we already have some details about what’s going to go down.
The publication reports that when Diana returns, the timeline will head straight into the 1980s, during a time of bad music and spiral perms. And while that timeline has had some people wondering whether or not the story would revolve around the fallout of the Justice League film, as it turns out that’s a big fat nope.
This film will reportedly focus instead on another historical adventure that takes place before the modern DCEU. As such Diana will go up against some evil forces of the Soviet Union as the Cold War comes to an end. The Americans would be proud.
While this news is pretty cool — we were huge fans of this first standalone adventure that took place during the First World War, after all — the even better news is that it looks as though the entire original production team is back on board. That includes Geoff Johns in charge of developing the script and director Patty Jenkins as director (okay so her contract isn’t finalized, but we have a pretty good feeling about this one).
Oh, also [hopefully] back? Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, despite his fate in the first film. At this point we don’t even care how realistic his return will be or how they’ll make it happen store-wise. All we know is that he and Gal Gadot were pretty epic together on screen, and while Wonder Woman doesn’t need a man, we all need an ally. Why not have it be Steve-O?
Sigh. And now the waiting game continues. Excuse us while we go purchase another ticket to see the original again in the meantime.
