Wonder Woman introduced to the beautiful Gal Gadot as the titular character who takes on the Man’s world in Amazonian armor. But the world building within the movie was also a sight for sore eyes. We also came to know a lot about Themyscira, the island populated solely by Greek women who led a warrior lifestyle and stayed hidden from the world due to a dense fog surrounding the island supposedly created by the Gods themselves. In that island, there were tons of memorable characters that fans could resonate with. And one of the characters from that island who died in the movie itself will be coming back for a second time in the sequel to Wonder Woman titled Wonder Woman 1984. Presenting – [SPOILER] comes back from the dead to reprise the role in Wonder Woman sequel.
Can you guess which character we are talking about?
Your first guess was probably Steve Trevor. Rumors of Chris Pine coming back to the sets of Wonder Woman 1984 are so prevalent now that the Studio is not even making an effort to deny it now. But rest assured, he is not who we are talking about. The one we actually are is someone who made a mark during the opening scenes of Wonder Woman itself.
It is Antiope, the Warrior mentor of Diana Prince that died when German soldiers invaded Themyscira to catch a hold of Steve Trevor whose planes crash-landed near the island. Antiope and her soldier platoon fought bravely to defend their precious island before Antiope was shot by a stray bullet and killed. This led to Wonder Woman realizing that Man’s World is wrought with danger and threats that need to be addressed and she set on a grand journey to end the war accompanied by Steve Trevor.
Antiope was destined to become a memory that will keep reminding Diana how precious and fragile life is. But it looks like the DCEU is bringing her back for the sequel to Wonder Woman as well. Rest assured she is not actually going to be resurrected like Superman was in Justice League.
The movie is rumored to have a major flashback scene that will show Antiope in her full might. The scene reportedly features one more major character – Hippolyta. The queen of the Amazons and mother dearest of Diana is also going to be a part of the flashback sequence. Net-A-Porter is the one that gives us this exciting piece of news.
No one would have thought that Themyscira is going to be revisited on the sets of Wonder Woman 1984. The establishment of a solid mythos in the first movie left a lasting impression on the audience, who would want at least a glimpse of the paradise island to be shown again in the sequel. Looks like Warner Bros. is finally learning to listen to its fan base. Better late than never!
Another rumor that is doing the rounds in the internet is that the flashback scene will show us a hint of the emotional tug of war regarding the ideology of the Amazon race. Zeus created the Amazons to fight for peace and protect the innocents. The Amazons would soon become enslaved and eventually rise to gain their freedom, at the end of which, they decided to exile themselves to a mythical island and isolate themselves from the world.
This would, in turn, give Ares the free rein he needs to make the world his personal board game. The Flashback scene will reportedly show Diana becoming the object of Zeus’ original intentions for the Amazons – to become a force for good and start doing what they were trained to do – fight the strong who prey on the weak.
Wonder Woman has already witnessed its digital and DVD/Blu-ray release. The official synopsis for the movie reads:
Before she was Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), she was Diana, Princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, Diana meets an American pilot (Chris Pine) who tells her about the massive conflict that’s raging in the outside world. Convinced that she can stop the threat, Diana leaves her home for the first time. Fighting alongside men in a war to end all wars, she finally discovers her full powers and true destiny.
