Wonder Woman Film To Take Place In The 1920s
A Wonder Woman film is finally coming to screens in 2017, but according to the latest rumors, the film itself won’t take place in 2017 (or the present). Apparently the first Wonder Woman movie will take place in the 1920s.
In the film a man will arrive on Paradise Island, the home of Wonder Woman and her fellow Amazons, and his arrival will eventually lead Wonder Woman to leave the island and explore the world. The sequel will then take place in the 30s and 40s during World War II and the eventual third film will take place in the present day.
Some fans might wonder how Wonder Woman could have been around for so long without a mention of her in Man of Steel. I’m sure the films will have a way to make sure the continuity makes sense (at least I hope so).
The idea of Wonder Woman running around in times when women’s rights were much different than they are today would actually be really interesting. If done right, the films could really tackle something sorely missing in these superhero movies: a strong female character and her perspective of the world around her. And who wouldn’t want to see Wonder Woman possibly punching some Nazis, right?
