The rumors were true! We had heard that Wonder Woman 2 would take place during the Cold War in the 1980s, and director Patty Jenkins confirmed it tonight.
Jenkins took the stage at Warner Bros.’ CinemaCon presentation tonight in Las Vegas. While she didn’t mention the Cold War, she did confirm that the movie will take place in the 1980s.

Some fans may be surprised to hear that Wonder Woman 2 takes place in the 80s, since Batman v Superman and Justice League told us that she walked away from mankind for 100 years after World War 1. But Gal Gadot has said that she doesn’t agree with that backstory, and it looks like the DCEU will be ignoring it going forward.
Aquaman director James Wan was there as well with stars Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Patrick Wilson, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II. Wan didn’t want to show any footage because the visual effects still aren’t done, but said that Warner Bros. made him anyways. The reactions were positive!
Okay, just saw a rough teaser trailer for #Aquaman and it looks really great, even with unfinished effects. Things seen: Orm, Vulko, gold TRIdent, Black Manta, Atlantis and various underwater races. Looks absolutely epic #CinemaCon

Shazam director David Sandberg took the stage as well. He showed some brief behind-the-scenes footage from the movie, and said that they’re “creating a modern DC cinematic universe accessible to the whole family”.
“We’re creating a modern DC cinematic universe accessible to the whole family,” says “Shazam” director David F. Sandberg, presenting perhaps a new, or rather newest, approach for DC movies
