Over the next few years, tonnes of superheroes films are being slotted to be released through their respecitve cinematic universes.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) will begin its 3rd phase next year with “Captain America: Civil War“. As for the DC Cinematic Universe, Zack Snyder’s upcoming superhero film “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” will be the launch pad for the subsequent films including “Wonder Woman“, “Aquaman“, “The Flash“, “Suicide Squad“, “Green Lantern“, “Shazam”, “Cyborg”, and 2-part “Justice League” films.
We already know how Gadot will look like as the Amazonian princess, but what we didn’t know is that her solo film has recently begun its principal photography earlier this week. This is proven through a couple of set photos that were first posted by French actor Saïd Taghmaoui on his Facebook on Instagram.
The set photos were removed from his pages now, but some fans managed to save the pictures before they were deleted.
The first photo showed that Taghmaoui will apparently star alongside Gadot and Chris Pine in the “Wonder Woman” solo movie.
Details regarding Taghmaoui’s role are scarce, but the “American Hustle” actor recently told French magazine Ultra that he would be playing a superhero in the film. He also revealed that he “had to go through extensive physical training for the role”, further stating that they will be filming in 4 different countries for approximately 6 months.
Another set photo seems to suggest that the film will take place decades before the events in “Man of Steel” or “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”.
As seen in the photo, Taghmaoui and co-star Pine are wearing period costumes, suggesting that the film will take place during World War I era.
Rumour also has it that the 2nd half of the film will take place in present day, with another rumour stating that Pine’s Steve Trevor will working with Wonder Woman to prevent a World War III kind of event.
Of course, we’d suggest you to takes the rumours with a pinch of salt because no plot details are announced yet.
Director Michelle MacLaren was originally set to direct the “Wonder Woman” solo movie, but she departed from the project due to creative differences. “Monster” director Patty Jenkins stepped in as Maclaren’s replacement and will be directing based on a script written by Jason Fuchs.
No other cast members have been confirmed, but Australian actress Nicole Kidman is in talks to play an Amazonian warrior. Slated for release on 23rd June 2017, the solo film will be produced by Zack Snyder and executive produced by Charles Roven for Atlas Entertainment.
