Should WW3 be set in the present?
WW84 is finally upon us! Sure it’s had some bumps along the way. From release date conflicts to platform release styles, they stuck to their guns and will meet the December 25 release! Whether you are team stream + theater or not, the world will see what type of response comes from the release of the hopeful blockbuster, WW84. MTV News‘s Josh Horowitz was able to sit down with Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot, for an interview regarding the new film. Of course, what type of an interview would it be if we didn’t take the opportunity to ask about a possible sequel to a film that has not been released yet? While it is brief, she does express the time period she thinks WW3 should take place in.
I would suggest watching the entire interview, but around the 7:50 mark, Gadot briefly discusses WW3. When asked about the time period she thinks a third installment should be set in, she reveals that the present is the way to go. With the first film taking place during WWI in 1918 and the sequel in 1984, Gadot feels as if the past has been accurately represented. She goes on to say that going into the 40s or 60s doesn’t need to be covered due to already focusing on the past.

I agree with this. The two stand-alone films provides fans with the blanks that we had from the picture we saw in BvS through Justice League. Now with that timespan covered, her history, and some villains are established. Also, this provides a progression of her story now moving forward. This could also lead to a more fluid, possible incorporation in other DC films. One of those that Horowitz asked about is Black Adam since Gadot is working on another film with The Rock. In true Gadot fashion, she suggests that anything is possible, but doesn’t want to discuss it. She feels The Rock should be the primary focus for his film. Therefore Gadot doesn’t want to possibly steal some of Rock’s thunder talking about guest appearances.
In the interview, Gadot also discusses her close friendship with Patty Jenkins, forming a relationship with Kristen Wiig, working with Chris Pine with the 80s theme, and her WW84 costumes. She also briefly discusses her military experience, gravitating towards strong female characters, and other upcoming projects.
What do you think? Should WW3 take place in the present, or would you rather see a different time period? Are you pumped for WW84? What platform will you be viewing the film? Leave your thoughts in the usual spot, and thanks for reading!
