As we continue to think about some of the biggest blockbusters to come out of the comic book world, a new report shows the possibilities that could come from the 80s set Wonder Woman 2 film.
Possible 80s Routes for the Upcoming Wonder Woman 2 Film
We already know that Kristen Wiig has been tapped to play the super-villain Cheetah. However, what will the overall setting be like in the film. The 80s was filled with political and social movements. It was also filled with some of the most popular music, films and artists. Picking the decade apart is not a difficult feat, however, Comicbook.com was up to the task.
“How does a feminist icon deal with the rise of the most powerful woman in the modern industrialized world?” questions Comicbook.com.
“Given how much of Wonder Woman took place in Europe, it seems like a no-brainer that any sequel set in the 1980s would inevitably deal with the rise of Thatcher, the ‘Iron Lady’ and a fearsome female figurehead for a reactionary movement that grew in England an much of the Western world in the ’80s.”
The site also cited the Berlin Wall and George Orwell’s 1984 as possible areas of exploration for the film. Of course there hasn’t been a confirmation on the plot for the next Wonder Woman film, however, being set in the 80s offers endless possibilities. We’ll be keeping an eye out for news on what kind of nostalgia to expect from the film as the release date nears.
