Wonder Woman has proven itself to be DC’s first genuine success. Looking at its performance, it is quite obvious that the studio would want to start work on its sequel soon enough.
Now before any details about the sequel can be revealed, Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins revealed a crucial update about where the movie will be set.
Wonder Woman 2 in the US
Screen Rant reported that Jenkins, in an interview, confirmed that Wonder Woman 2 would be set in the US. According to the director, it is time for Diana to come to America.
While Wonder Woman was set in the fictional Themyscira and Europe, it is refreshing to see the God-like warrior come to the US. The last time she was in the US, she got involved fighting Doomsday and helping Superman and Batman take down the monster.
After that, she flew back to Paris where she works in the antique department of The Louvre. Both Wonder Woman and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice established this.
The main question now would be what exactly would she be doing there? While the director did not reveal if they have locked in a story for the sequel or not, producer Charles Roven stated that a script has not been finalized yet.
But despite that, he did mention that a couple of ideas have been discussed. Going by the success of the first movie, the studio will also perhaps give writers all the time they need so that they can follow-up properly on the success of the first movie.
Steve Trevor’s inclusion
DC fans will be aware that Steve Trevor’s inclusion in a Wonder Woman story has always been crucial. For the sequel as well, he will undoubtedly play a pivotal part.
Chris Pine portrayed the role in Wonder Woman and has been contracted to appear in multiple movies. Back in the comic books, post the New 52 series, a different Steve Trevor was introduced in the DC universe.
The first Steve Trevor was the US officer who crashed in Themyscira and was saved by Diana. However, the second Steve Trevor is based in present day and is actually the head of an organization called A.R.G.U.S.
He is a super spy and is also the liaison between Justice League and the Government. If Pine is contracted for multiple movies, chances are Wonder Woman 2 will see him play this modern version of Trevor in the movie.
Cinema Blend further reported that this modern version of Trevor (Head of A.R.G.U.S) will actually be the grandson of the original Steve Trevor who crashed in Themyscira during WWI.
The outlet also reported that because Pine is contracted for multiple movies, his modern version of Trevor could also show up in a movie like Justice League or Justice League 2.
Another way Diana can come to the US is if she is collaborating with other heroes in Wonder Woman 2. She is already collaborating with Batman and other members of Justice League.
Once that movie is over, chances are she will choose to stay back in Gotham or Metropolis for a while before going somewhere else. While living in the US, she could face a new adversary, meet the modern version of Trevor and with his help defeat this new enemy.
Diana was shown to be in the US in the animated movie Justice League War. The movie could get some inspiration from that and place the Amazonian warrior stateside.
No official details on the plot of the movie have been released yet. But the sequel could bring a new supervillain from the Wonder Woman-verse. Since there are many God-like villains that Diana has fought, makers could consider bringing First Born, Circe or Cheetah in the sequel.
No official release date for Wonder Woman 2 has been revealed yet.
