“Wonder Woman 2” might have Princess Diana battling the Soviet Union during the Cold War.

Screen Rant reports that the sequel will be set in the United States in the 1980s.  Geoff Johns, DC Entertainment President and screenwriter, and director Patty Jenkins are currently penning the script.

Reportedly, Chris Pine has signed on for the franchise’s next installment as Steve Trevor. It is unclear how the film will include Trevor’s character.

Jenkins has not yet signed on as the official director. “Wonder Woman” was a box office success with the biggest film opening ever for a female director.

Overall, the film grossed over $360 million domestically and is the biggest DC Entertainment film to date.
