• Zack Snyder’s Wonder Woman movie plans at one point involved exploring her journeys outside Themyscira in 1854.
  • The movie would have followed Diana as she traveled the world to find Ares, encountering lovers and warriors along the way.
  • Snyder’s idea for Wonder Woman 1854 never became a full screenplay, but it showed a different path for the character in the DCEU.



Zack Snyder recently revealed more information about his plans for a potential prequel to Wonder Woman in the DCEU, which ultimately never saw the light of day. Snyder’s original plans seem like the opposite of the contentious Wonder Woman 1984, taking Diana further into the past instead of closer to the present day. It may also have explored more of Diana’s relationship with Wonder Woman antagonist Ares.

In an interview with Empire, Zack Snyder revealed his plans to explore Wonder Woman’s other journeys outside Themyscira in a movie called Wonder Woman 1854. Snyder’s Wonder Woman comments can be seen below:

“The idea of that was an early riff we were doing: once Wonder Woman left the island in search of Ares, what happened to her in her different incarnations? My idea for it was that she would travel around the world looking for Ares and she would go to every place where there was conflict.

On those battlefields she found these lovers, warriors, and they would age out because she is immortal. They would be her lover for ten years or they might die in battle, and it was probably sad for a lot of the guys because they would see her starting to be nice to the next young soldier and be like, ‘Oh, I’m being replaced.’ But all the guys that she had with her were those loyal warriors she found on the battlefields all over the world.

We talked about if Steve Trevor was there in Crimea. It was never a screenplay, but we talked about it so much that it kind of had its own life.”

Snyder’s comments elaborate on a previous tweet that he made hinting at other Wonder Woman stories in 2021, but new story details give more insight into what could have been had the DCEU followed a different path for Wonder Woman.

Snyder’s comments about Diana’s faith in people not yet being restored could hint that this Diana would have been a bit less compassionate than the one seen in Wonder Woman. This story would seemingly contradict Wonder Woman‘s assertion that Diana had never left Themyscira or met a man before.

Wonder Woman was one of the most important characters in the DCEU since Gal Gadot’s debut in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Wonder Woman’s New Story Could Have Addressed An Issue With Wonder Woman 1984

A Wonder Woman prequel would have significantly changed Diana’s DCEU story in a few ways. First, it would mean a retcon of Wonder Woman being the first time Diana has left Themyscira. More than that, it would also seemingly run the risk of making her relationship with Steve Trevor feel far less significant. If Diana was going through consistent cycles of the same type of romance, it wouldn’t make a lot of sense that Steve would have as big of an impact on her outlook.

The main point of Diana’s relationship with Steve in Wonder Woman was for Diana to learn that there is goodness in men and that humanity is worth protecting. If Diana had already fallen in love with multiple other humans before this point, one would assume that she already had some appreciation for life outside Themyscira. While this would fundamentally change the impact of Wonder Woman, this story could also have helped avoid an issue with Wonder Woman 1984.

Wonder Woman 1984 revisits Diana decades after losing Steve. With Diana still in grief over her lost love, Steve is brought back to life – but he inhabits the body of another living person. This creates serious problems of bodily autonomy as Steve lives in someone else’s body and engages in sexual activity. If Wonder Woman had followed Snyder’s earlier character arc, she might have been more willing to move on, avoiding the controversy altogether.
