WONDER WOMAN 3 Confirmed To Feature A "Contemporary" Setting As The Franchise Moves On From The Past

While Wonder Woman 1984 may be set in 1984 (the title sort of gives it away), director Patty Jenkins has now confirmed that if a third movie happens, it won't be taking place in the past. Check it out!

Due to Warner Bros.' decision to push Wonder Woman 1984 back from this November to next June, we still have well over a year to go until we get to see Diana Prince return to the big screen. However, director Patty Jenkins is clearly already mulling over what comes next because she's now confirmed that a third movie would move from the past to the present day. 

"I'm not set," she revealed, confirming that she hasn't signed on for a third instalment quite yet, "but I'm not dying to do another period piece."
 
The filmmaker added that her decision comes as a result of there being only so many stories that can be told in the past. "I'm not planning to put it in the past again, because where are you going to go? You have to go forward. It's definitely a contemporary story. That's all I can say. Where we put it and how that gets figured out, I haven't totally nailed down."

Contemporary could obviously mean either the present day or even around the time of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in an adventure which could shed some light on Diana's decision to come out of hiding to help stop Doomsday's rampage.

Then again, is that story really one Warner Bros. would want to revisit as they attempt to move on from the Zack Snyder era of the 
DCEU? Either way, it will definitely be good to see Wonder Woman enter the present day and to find out how the world responds to her once she steps out of the shadows to become a publicly recognised superhero.
