Production talks for “Wonder Woman 2” are now on the rise following the success of the first film. Recent reports have revealed the story for the sequel and hinted at the possible return of Chris Pine.

Story details

The sequel will be another historical adventure much like the first film. “Wonder Woman 2” will be set in the 1980s. According to Screenrant, the film will bring Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) in yet another historical battle, this time in the Soviet Union. The timeline is set in the closing days of the cold war unlike in the first film where it was set in World War I.

Patty Jenkins talks sequel location

This report aligns with what Patty Jenkins told Entertainment Weekly about the location for the sequel. She said that the sequel will unfold in America. It is supposedly time for the DC hero character to end up in America. “The story will take place in the U.S., which I think is right,” she said.

Chris Pine to return

Chris Pine, who played Steve Trevor in the first movie, will reportedly return for the sequel. He will continue to be her ally. The question though, is how he fits into the story if the sequel is set after the events in the first film. After all, the character is pretty much dead in the first film.

To recap, Steve sacrificed himself to save the people from poisonous gas.

He intercepted the plane that carried the gas and blew the plane up, including himself, in the air. No one could have survived that explosion. Steve’s death brought out Diana’s God Killer powers at the last minute and helped defeat Ares.

Details about Pine’s return as Steve Trevor in “Wonder Woman 2” remain undisclosed. Perhaps flashback scenes from his time spent with Diana in the first film will make up for his presence in the sequel.

Other production details for 'Wonder Woman 2'

The people behind the success of the first film will continue to be a part of the sequel. Zack Snyder also previously revealed that the sequel is in development. Geoff Johns is on board to write the script. Patty Jenkins, who directed the first film, is reportedly still in negotiations to return for the sequel.

However, it is likely that she will also helm the sequel once the contracts are signed.

Regardless, Warner Bros. has yet to make an official announcement about the release of the sequel. Likewise, Chris Pine has yet to confirm his appearance in the film. Gal Gadot, on the other hand, will appear next as Wonder Woman in “Justice League.”
