Patty Jenkins has confirmed that she's planning Wonder Woman 3 to be set in the present day.
While the first two installments in this proposed trilogy delve into different periods of 20th century history, the director has suggested that the third movie is going to bring us back to the present day.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Jenkins remarked that she currently has no intention of making Diana Prince's third solo outing another period film, stating:
"I'm not set, but I'm not dying to do another period piece…it's definitely one of the things we've talked about. I'm not pining to put it in the past again because then where are you gonna go? You have to go forward. So it's definitely a contemporary story. That's all I can say. And so where we put it and how that gets figured out, I haven't totally nailed down."
The future is no doubt bright for Wonder Woman. The DCEU is pivoting to embrace heroes who've never had their chance to shine on the big screen before, with Aquaman even breaking $1 billion in the global box office. Wonder Woman 1984 is sure to be another success, and Wonder Woman 3 should be equally thrilling with the same creative team on board.
