Rumor: ‘Wonder Woman’ Setting Revealed?

Wonder Woman setting

Although we’ve had an eye on Warner Bros.’ Wonder Woman for a while now, we actually don’t know a whole lot about it at this point. It’s confirmed that Patty Jenkins will direct, with Gal Gadot and Chris Pine starring. Beyond that, we don’t know what it’ll be about, who the villain will be, or when and where it takes place.

All we have to go by right now is rumor and speculation, and on that front one particularly interesting tidbit is making the rounds today. While an earlier rumor indicated Wonder Woman would be set in the 1920s, this new one says it’ll go back even further than that. More about the possible Wonder Woman setting after the jump.  Read More »

We’ve had new information on Wonder Woman only very occasionally, but with the film getting ready to shoot in the fall with Patty Jenkins directing, we’ll soon start to learn a lot more about the movie.

We know that Gal Gadot (above) plays Diana Prince / Wonder Woman, and Chris Pine will be Steve Trevor. Now there’s a credible rumor that Hoyte van Hoytema, who shot films such as Interstellar and the upcoming Spectre, will be the Wonder Woman cinematographer. Read More »
