According to a new report by the folks over at Bleeding Cool, Warner Bros. actually plans a trilogy for the solo female superhero saga with the first Wonder Woman movie to take place in the 1920s.

Spoiler Alert:

“The film will spend the first half on Paradise Island with warring Amazon factions vying for control,” the latest rumor suggests “An arrival of a man (who is not necessarily Steve Trevor) on the island changes that status quo, as he asks the Amazons for help.”

Apparently, Princess Diana accompanies him as he returns to the world of Man, where it is revealed that the setting is the 1920s.

“And the film will then show Diana exploring that world…from her unique perspective.”

Additionally, the outlet claims that Warner Bros. already has plans for a Wonder Woman sequel to take place during World War II in the thirties and forties, and a threequel

“would then take place in the modern day, with the Justice League Of America.”

The studio still hasn’t set a director for the 2017 project, but The Wrap first reported that Gal Gadot has had to pass on the female lead in the Ben-Hur remake due to her DC obligations. However, Gadot is also set to appear in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and presumably the Justice League movie. But if period pic (Captain America: The First Avenger) brought diversity to Marvel’s superhero slate, maybe it could work for Warner Bros.’ DC too, regardless of the reason why Gadot turned down the female lead in a retelling of the 1959 Charlton Heston classic, starring Jack Huston .

Wonder Woman is expected to be released June 23, 2017 and stars Gal Gadot. Meanwhile, the actress will first make her debut in “High Noon” of Justice on March 25, 2016.
