Screenrant was the first to report the rumored setting for the film.
Geoff Johns, president of DC Entertainment, is currently developing the script for the sequel with director Patty Jenkins, who is negotiating a return to the director’s chair.
In addition to this, it is being reported that Chris Pine will indeed return to the DCEU despite his character sacrificing himself in the third act of Wonder Woman. While this may seem impossible, never forget that this a comic book film and nine times out of ten, no one stays dead forever. How Trevor returns for the dead has not been reported at this time.
