Solo ‘Wonder Woman’ film rumoured as prequel to ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’
Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman is making her big-screen debut in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” She will also be starring in her solo film and recent rumours point to her movie being a prequel to the Batman-Superman starrer.
Everyone’s attention may be focused on “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” given the film is all-set for release in the first quarter of 2016. This does not mean, though, that DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Pictures have not forgotten Wonder Woman’s solo movie. Chris Pine has confirmed to have signed on for a role and rumours point to him playing Steve Trevor, the superhero’s love interest.
New rumours now say that Diana Prince’s movie will be a prequel to “Dawn of Justice,” probably answering a lot of the questions that will surely rise after the film debuts. The rumour does seem to have some grounding as previous rumours already pointed to the possibility of Wonder Woman’s film spanning decades from her time in Themyscira to the World War II to present day, which means the story will sit at a time before Batman and Superman’s epic battle.
According to JoBlo, the plot of Wonder Woman’s film may not be what most expected it to be. Steve Trevor will definitely be there but not the sam Steve Trevor in the comics. He won’t be a World War I pilot but instead someone in present day. He will be helping Diana a.k.a. Wonder Woman in stopping an impending World War III that’s being ushered in by Circe. Of course, Wonder Woman has to address with Trevor her first battle with Ares.
If this plot seems familiar to some fans, it’s because it is. The same had been tackled in the 2009 animated film, “Wonder Woman.” The said film also spanned decades, with a lot of flashback and flash forwards to tell Diana Prince’s story leading to present day.
Bear in mind, though, that most information on the film are mere rumours and speculations so treat them with a grain of salt.
“Wonder Woman” is currently pinned for a June 23, 2017 release.
