With the Wonder Woman solo film, starring Gal Gadot and Chris Pine, currently in principal photography, new photos were made available as reported by Comic Book Movie. This apparently confirms the film is set in the World War I era, per the appearance of period piece costumes. Along with Gadot and Pine appeared Ewen Bremner. Patty Jenkins is directing. Further theories suggested that these were the kind of posters used to garner attention for prospective recruits from 1914 to 1918 in an attempt to bring in soldiers for World War I.
One of the movie set photos suggested the possibility that the assembled actors may have been rehearsing or reenacting a period in time where the soldiers were returning from France which could put this towards the conclusion of the war. The poster was encouraging a monetary exchange.
“French Money Exchange.”
Also, the recruitment poster had its say regarding a devotion to the powers that be of England stating:
“Your King and country need you, enlist now.”
Now, with Wonder Woman’s wheels set in motion and with a cheery smile on Gadot’s face in the pictures, it indeed looks like she’s enjoying her involvement. Pine looks determined and, according to Batman-News earlier this month, had a set photo of him in costume as Steve Trevor. For those unfamiliar with the comic book version of Steve, he was a love interest of Diana Prince and an Air Force pilot, and now currently the leader of A.R.G.U.S. and a government agent. He’s also a co-leader of the Justice League as well as a member, according to Comic Vine. Though it’s not known how Pine’s role in the movie will compare to the comic book.
The Wonder Woman photos tweeted by DC World’s account holder was deemed by other followers as having done a great job acquiring the pictures.
A movie photo of cloaked Gal Gadot was released by Warner Brothers. Also, Said Taghmaoui earlier this month tweeted a photo of himself and Chris Pine in regards to the recent Paris attacks, advocating “Peace for Paris” on the set of Wonder Woman, according to the Wrap. There also shows Said’s chair seated right next to Pine and Gal. It was then he was announced to be in the the film, and IMDb doesn’t have listed the character that he would be portraying, and there’s quite a list of actors that don’t have assigned names just yet.
Screen Crush shows Gadot on the Wonder Woman movie set to be in feminine attire in what looks to be a more subdued ensemble of a military “vibe.” Pine also appeared in the set photos, and is also rumored to play Trevor’s grandfather in the film. The movie rumors continues to tell the tale of how the grandfather takes a trip to Paradise Island, home to Diana Prince.
“It’s also been rumored that Pine is playing two roles in Wonder Woman: that of longtime love interest Steve Trevor, as well as Trevor’s grandfather, who travels to Diana’s home of Paradise Island and brings her back to our world in the early 20th century. The younger Trevor will encounter Diana in present day and the two will team up.”

Wonder Woman movie rumors also continue to mention that Ares and Circe could be battling it out with Diana Prince, according to Science Fiction, which reported as such in regards to the aforementioned time periods.
“While the costumes are clearly ‘period’ it’s still unclear what time period that is, but most are going with World War I, which raged from 1914-1918. It’s not clear what significance this time holds, but it is said to be the setting of Wonder Woman’s first battle with Ares the god of war.”
The Wonder Woman movie is scheduled to be released come June 23, 2017, and is written by Jason Fuchs and William M. Marston. Bremner’s role is unknown at this time, and Netflix’s House of Cards Robin Wright also stars in the Jenkins-directed film.
