On a hiatus until January right now.Hello! There's a tie-in prequel comic for Wonder Woman 1984 named Museum Mayhem:
Wonder Woman 1984: "Museum Mayhem" is a 32-page one-shot comic that wasreleased on September 29, 2020 as a tie-in prelude forWonder Woman 1984.1 1 Synopsis 2 Appearances 2.1 Characters 2.2 Locations 2.3 Events 2.4 Species 2.5 Items 2.6 Organizations 2.7 Creatures 3 Gallery 3.1 Panels 3.2 Covers...dcextendeduniverse.fandom.com
There are two stories in the comics, only the first one is canon for the DCEU!
The same issue crops up in the Marvel Cinematic Universe regarding Captain America: The First Avenger, Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter, Agent Carter and Captain Marvel.So if this film is 100% set in 1984, with no scenes set in the present, and the voiceover being Diana in '84 speaking to someone in the same year, this film is now chronologically the first film in the main DCEU. This creates some story flow issues because in a chronological watch-through, you would watch WW84 > BVS > Wonder Woman. A newcomer's first introduction to WW would be this film, and you wouldn't get her backstory until the first produced film. It just creates an issue from a story perspective, so I'm really hoping that the voice over can be interpreted as being Diana telling someone in the present day the story of her in 84. That would be all that's needed to fix this potential concern I have with this film.
Question for you guys:Im exactly the same way!!
Yes and yes. I have rules that I go by. For instance, if The Snyder Cut spans 5 years, it will be placed in 2022, as it chronologically ends in that year, despite taking place mostly in 2017.Question for you guys:
Would you watch Captain America: The Winter Soldier after Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 1x17-1x22 because the after credits scene takes place later in the timeline, therefore spoiling the HYDRA twist?
What about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2? That film takes place in 2014 in it's entirety, except for the teenage Groot?
Sure, but it's litterally 4 minutes of the movie in the present.Because that's not how the films are designed to be watched.
Movies aren't designed to be watched after their sequel, either...Because that's not how the films are designed to be watched.
