We’ve known for some time that the upcoming Wonder Woman movie would take place in two time periods: modern day and World War I. But, what if that modern day time period, wasn’t exactly modern day. As it turns out, the Wonder Woman movie will actually serve as a prequel to Batman vs. Superman, taking place before the events of that movie.

Rumors of the period and place setting for the Wonder Woman film have been all over the place. Since the film was first announced last year, we’ve heard that it will take place on Diana’s home of Paradise Island before moving to our world, with World War I, World War II and present day all thrown in the mix and talk of a plan for a potential trilogy. The latest rumor simplifies things a bit, but claims that the first Wonder Woman solo film will unfold across multiple periods.
As Wonder Woman prepares to head into production this fall, we’re going to start hearing a whole lot more about DC and Warner Bros.’ first woman-fronted solo superhero effort, and the latest casting rumor is quite interesting. WB is reportedly eyeing Sean Bean and Eva Green (aka Green Bean — I just made that up) to play Wonder Woman’s antagonists in the film — yes, antagonists plural.
We’re still a little less than two years out from the release of Wonder Woman, DC and WB’s first solo female superhero film, but production is already set to begin this fall with director Patty Jenkins and stars Gal Gadot and Chris Pine — which means it’s only a matter of months before set photos begin trickling out to the delight of the entire internet.
One of the most notable moments in the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailers is the scene in which Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman zips across the screen before stopping in front of the camera, apparently in mid-battle. But who is she fighting, exactly? Is she caught up in a fight between Superman and Batman, or is she fighting her own battle? We may know the answer.
ScreenCrush’s Comic Strip is a weekly roundup of the hottest superhero movie/TV news items. From Marvel to DC and points in between, if it pertains to costumed comic book heroes, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, we explore what went down with Gambit this week, check out the latest updates on the DC movie universe, and drool over that upcoming Hulkbuster figure.
Warner Bros. definitely has a more prolonged shooting schedule than Marvel’s films, though with only Man of Steel to show for their efforts, it remains to be seen if this works in their favor. The studio has lined up schedules for two of their next superhero films, with Wonder Woman heading into production later this year and Justice League following early next year.
A while back we heard talk of Chris Pine potentially starring in Wonder Woman opposite Gal Gadot, but then we also heard some rumors about Pine potentially playing one of the leading superhero roles in Green Lantern Corps — that seemed to confirm that Pine was in talks to star in something for Warner Bros. and DC, and now it’s been made official. Pine will play Diana Prince’s love interest in Wonder Woman.
After the Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday, where the new trailer was unveiled, fans at the DC Comics booth were treated to a special appearance from the cast and director from the upcoming Warner Bros. tentpole film.
One of the most interesting parts of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be the introduction of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. Before the hero gets her very own solo adventure, we’ll see her alongside Batman and Superman as they brood at each other and duke it out. But how big is Gadot’s part in the film, exactly? Director Zack Snyder is promising some big things.
