Wonder Woman is no doubt the most popular female superhero of all time. When DC brings her to the big screen next year she will undoubtedly be a hit among fans. There is much speculation as to when the Wonder Woman standalone film will take place. Since Wonder Woman is essentially ageless, many believe that she could be hundreds of years old by the time [Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice](tag:711870) takes place. But Heroic Hollywood heard some very interesting rumors coming from their sources that may clear up some things up for us.
There was speculation last fall by Bleeding Cool that the movie would take place during the 1920s, and that subsequent sequels would take place in WWII, and then in modern day.
According to HH, however, that rumor was close, but no cigar. According to his industry sources, the first half of the Wonder Woman film will take place during World War I, with the second half happening in modern day.
Another rumored bit of information that's been floating around that would seem to corroborate this WWI rumor is that Diana will be at least 200 years old in Dawn of Justice, so it's entirely plausible that she'd have been around for the events of the Great War.
Wonder Woman during WWI era?
It would be interesting to see how Wonder Woman will be introduced in the 1920s and if she will be a part of the war. I could easily see Gal Gadot as a classic 20s flapper girl who could punish anyone in her way!
Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman will be great!
Gal Gadot has already received all my faith when it comes to Wonder Woman. I think she is perfect for the modern day and her acting ability is constantly being underrated. If they decide to go with the 1920s route with Wonder Woman's timeline I think it would work very well and give an interesting origin to to character. According to the source the second half of the film will take place in the modern day so it should be a smooth transition. Wonder Woman will be the perfect follow up to DC's ultimate combination in 2016 with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad!
