“Wonder Woman 1984” Is Not A Sequel?

Wonder Woman 1984 Is Not A Sequel

While many are wondering how Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor character is set to return in Patty Jenkins’ upcoming “Wonder Woman 1984,” a producer on the film has hinted that we shouldn’t expect much in the way of ties to the previous film.

Veteran producer Charles Roven, talking with Vulture (via CBM), says the new film isn’t really a direct sequel built on the events of the previous one but rather is mostly a standalone story:

“[Jenkins] was just determined that this movie should be the next iteration of Wonder Woman but not a sequel. And she’s definitely delivering on that. It’s a completely different time frame and you’ll get a sense of what Diana-slash-Wonder Woman had been doing in the intervening years. But it’s a completely different story that we’re telling.”

The site also says according to their sources, this instalment avoids sequel trappings as is a “stand-alone film in the same way that Indiana Jones or Bond films are, instead of one continuous story that requires many instalments.”
