Zack Snyder Unveils Details of Scrapped Wonder Woman 1854 Plot


  • Snyder's abandoned Wonder Woman concept would have explored her past, immersing viewers in the Crimean War era for a unique superhero storyline.
  • The proposed 'Wonder Woman 1854' film would have focused on Diana's quest for Ares, showcasing her immortal nature and relationships amidst conflict.
  • Despite the project's abandonment, the narrative would have intertwined romance, conflict, and immortality to create a captivating story arc for Wonder Woman.

Zack Snyder, renowned for directing Wonder Woman and numerous other DCEU projects, unveiled insights into a prospective Wonder Woman film that could have portrayed the beloved superhero in an entirely new environment.

The now-abandoned prequel project would have delved deeper into Wonder Woman's past instead of progressing r to the present day. Snyder has shared additional details about his original vision for Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman, shedding light on what could have transpired had the DCEU opted for an alternate path for the superhero.

During an exclusive interview with Empire, Snyder shared plot details of a potential new Wonder Woman film. Dubbed 'Wonder Woman 1854,' this concept aimed to provide a refreshing angle on the iconic superhero, promising to transport audiences to a different era. Despite initial enthusiasm, this ambitious vision ultimately fell through and was abandoned, leaving little hope for its revival within the DC cinematic universe.

Across two standalone Wonder Woman films and other DC cinematic universe projects, the Amazonian superhero found herself involved in conflicts spanning World War I, 1980s America, and the current Justice League timeline, fighting alongside iconic heroes like Superman and Batman. However, the envisioned Wonder Woman 1854 would have transported her to an entirely new setting: the Crimean War. Just as its predecessors delved into historical events, this instalment would have unfolded amidst the 1800s conflict. Snyder even shared a photo from the project, featuring Gadot's Wonder Woman, Diana Prince, with soldiers, carrying three severed heads—a chilling glimpse into the untold tale.

Snyder clarified that the concept of Wonder Woman 1854 was primarily an early exploration into the various paths Diana's journey might have taken after departing the island in pursuit of Ares. Elaborating on the concept, Snyder shared, “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.” This narrative thread would have eventually led Diana to encounter Steve Trevor, portrayed by Chris Pine, with Snyder mentioning, “We talked about if Steve Trevor was there in Crimea.” Despite the extensive discussions surrounding this idea, it ultimately did not materialize into a full-fledged project. Nevertheless, Snyder noted that the idea had taken on a life of its own due to the extensive conversations and brainstorming sessions surrounding it.

This envisioned project would have been a blend of romance and conflict. Snyder described it as, “On those battlefields she found these lovers, warriors, and they would age out because she is immortal.” He further explained, “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.” Ultimately, this narrative would have reached its climax with Diana encountering Trevor, thereby completing the thematic arc of love amidst the backdrop of conflict and immortality.

Wonder Woman is now available on HBO Max and Netflix.
