Plot news, rumors and theories
Don't be a cheetah! Cheetah has long been a nemesis of Wonder Woman, with four different incarnations since its debut in 1943. (In 2001 one man briefly took the title of Cheetah, but the other three were women.) Early Cheetahs were just women in costumes, but more recent versions turn into a hybrid of man and cheetah and have improved strength and agility, plus deadly claws and canines. Thanks to a photo that Jenkins shared at the end of June 2018 Wiig & # 39; s version of Cheetah archaeologist Barbara Minerva seems to be, but there is also no need for the film to stay close to every comic.
No sequel: Producer Charles Roven said that Vulture director Jenkins "is determined that this film should be the next iteration of Wonder Woman, but no sequel." He remarks that the film is set in a completely different time frame and tells a completely different story than the original.
Totally amazing & # 39; 80s: Screenrant says the new movie "Diana will send against the forces of the Soviet Union in the final days of the Cold War." To be specific, the film is set in 1984, the year of the Los Angeles Olympics. To get into the spirit of the 1980s, the cast also posed for a photo that mimics the poster for John Hughes & # 39; 1985 hit The Breakfast Club.
Pining for Pine: Many fans wondered if Chris Pine, who played Steve Trevor in the first film, would be back. Spoiler ahead: he sacrificed himself in the first movie, so it seems … difficult. But everything goes in comic revolts (just askabout Marvel). And now that Jenkins we have to wonder how exactly he returns.
Here comes the general: Robin Wright again plays General Antiope in the sequel. (Spoiler: it will have to be in flashback or another turn because the general has sacrificed himself for Diana in the first film.)
Seventies superstar: Until Gadot, the iconic Wonder Woman appeared on the screen was Lynda Carter, who played in the television series from the 70s. Could Carter appear in a cameo in the future? Jenkins was asked about this at the beginning of 2018. "We'll see," she told Mary Hart of Entertainment Tonight. "Lynda is one of the dearest people to us, has been a great mentor and dear friend. And we actually desperately tried to get her in the first and we had the planning that couldn't work, so she was always part of our Wonder Woman family We won't say anything yet, but we certainly won't do it – we won't try it. & # 39;
She comes to America: The first film was set in Europe in wartime, but for this the star-studded superhero comes to the good old US. "The story is set in the US, which I think is right," Jenkins told Entertainment Weekly. & # 39; She is Wonder Woman. must come to America. It is time. & # 39;
