"Wonder Woman 2" Logo Confirms The Film Will Take Place In The Year 1984
With all the excitement that new Marvel films generate, it can be easy to forget about the DC cinematic universe. Of course, the main culprit is likely the overall quality the films, but one DCU picture stands plainly above the rest: Wonder Woman.
Wonder Woman, starring Gal Gadot and Chris Pine, impressed critics and became one the highest grossing films 2017, beating every other Marvel film that came out that year.
Now, we have some new info on the sequel, which is set to drop next year. Gef Johns, DC Entertainment's president and CEO, changed his Facebook cover photo to a new logo for the sequel, which confirms that the sequel will take place in the year 1984, 60 years after the WWI setting the original.
While it had been confirmed in the past that the film was going to take place during that decade, the exact year can give us some clues as to what will be going on in the film. Of course, the major event was the Cold War that took place between the United States and Russia, which will definitely have a big part to play in the film. 1984 could also be a reference to the George Orwell novel the same name, which means the film might deal with themes totalitarianism and government surveillance.
Speculation aside, we do know for a fact that Kristen Wiig will be joining the cast to play Wonder Woman's longtime villain, Cheetah. How she'll fit into the plot will be revealed when the film is released next year.
