Instead of focussing on the present it looks like ‘Wonder Woman 2′ might be another flashback of Princess Diana’s adventures according to a recent statement from director Patty Jenkins. While the first film is taking place in the late 1910s, it sounds like we might see the second on the 1930s. This is fun news for those of us who enjoy period piece superhero movies, but for anyone who was hoping that she’d be fighting any of her modern villains, this could be a bit annoying.
When asked specifically about the 1930s Jenkins stated:
“I’m definitely planning something more interesting using that period of time. Definitely, it’s the plan. I can’t say what it is! But it’s definitely right in the pocket of what you’re talking about.”
It almost sounds like we’ll be seeing her just prior to World War II. However, as she stated in ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ she had walked away from mankind “from a century of horrors” so that could either mean she abandoned us just prior to World War II or just after.
The use of period pieces has worked well for superheroes in examples such as ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’ and the new X-Men films starting with ‘X-Men: First Class.’

Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, Princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
