RUMOR: First Half of ‘Wonder Woman’ Set During World War I?
Heroic Hollywood has an interesting rumor about the era that Patty Jenkin’s Wonder Woman film will be set in. Here is what the site had to say concerning the film’s timeline, which apparently has been altered slightly from the original rumored plan.
“Last fall, Bleeding Cool did a story saying the Wonder Woman standalone film will take place during the 1920s with later sequels taking place during World War II and then modern day. Well, according to my sources here in Hollywood that is not exactly true.
The latest rumor I am hearing is the first half of Wonder Woman standalone film will actually take place during World War I. Again, World War I not II. The second half of the film takes place during modern day.”
World War I, is the first large scale war, where planes were introduced into combat, it’s possible that that cues from Wonder Woman’s origin will play out with a pilot of sorts. Balancing between World War I, and present time might be more tricky than most are expecting.
The Wrap reported that Chris Pine closed a deal to star opposite Gal Gadot in the film, but we have no idea which of the two eras his scenes will focus on. It’s been said he’s playing Steve Trevor in the solo film, while I’ve heard Warner Bros. have big plans for the character and could include him joining Justice League. That might change completely, if they stick him in WWI, but this remains to be seen how Steve actually fits into the film.
Most believe that Pine chose Trevor over a character like Green Lantern‘s Hal Jordon, but we still don’t know for sure how the cinematic Steve Trevor will be presented to us in Wonder Woman.
