Will we see Diana Prince in the Justice League film? Will there be a sequel? Will Queen Patty Jenkins direct?
Well, we have some answers!
According to Screen Rant, the Wonder Woman sequel will be set before the Justice League fallout. In the 1980’s. Yep, Diana about to kick some Cold War Soviet Union butt.
And, even better, according to them, all-around nice guy and genuine hero Steve Trevor is going to be there with her.
Give me a moment while I cry from happiness at that angel being untouched.
However some, like Mic, are asking whether having a film set only 50 years after the first is a missed opportunity for the DC Extended Universe. Whilst they acknowledge that the popularity of the first film has earned the film makers the right to do whatever they want, they’re worried it will be repetitive and won’t help the DCEU further their story.
Jason Berman writes,
“Without suggesting any alternative plots, a Wonder Woman sequel could play an instrumental role in the narrative future of the DCEU, by having the events of the film have a long-lasting impact on subsequent movies.”
Which is fair call. Diana Prince is often compared to Captain Steve Rogers (Marvel’s Captain America). Many fans will be looking to see a film like Winter Soldier, where the story line is relevant to today.
However, the first time we saw Diana Prince she had stepped in to stop Batman and Superman destroying each other. She wanted to flee from the world, only helping minimally to avoid complete destruction. We’ve seen how it affected her. We’ve seen the beginning of why she’s withdrawn. Maybe this film will add to that? Maybe it will highlight why she hasn’t worked with a team since, highlighting the importance of her joining the Justice League.
