What Does WONDER WOMAN 2’s Rumored Villain Tell Us About the Movie?

Will Wonder Woman 2 see Diana chasing a famous villain in the ’80s? We discussed that on today’s Nerdist News Talks Back, along with how Star Wars Rebels‘ huge new development could forever change the galaxy far, far away, and whether Fox should slow down with their new superhero movies.

Joining host Jessica Chobot today was Nerdist News writer Aliza Pearl, along with editors Amy Ratcliffe and Dan Casey, and they started off with SPOILERS! Seriously, huge spoilers for this week’s Star Wars Rebels. If you have watched it, or don’t mind hearing them, skip ahead.

Or maybe we should say skip back, since it added time travel to the galaxy far, far away. They discuss whether this is too much of a hard science fiction change for a franchise about space magic and whether the concept will appear in future stories.

We also got word Fox will make a standalone Silver Surfer movie, in addition to their Kitty Pryde, Doctor Doom, and fast-tracked X-Force films. Are we happy about this, or would we prefer they wait for Disney to tackle them?

Finally, That Hashtag Show reports Wonder Woman 2 will be set in the ’80s and the big bad will be none other than Cheetah. Do we think this is the right villain for the film? Whoever the villain ends up being, they need to be more meaty than Ares.

Remember Nerdist News Talks Back airs at 1 p.m. PT live on our YouTube and Alpha channels Monday through Thursday, and we end our week with the all new Nerdist News What the Fridays at 1 p.m. PT, exclusively at Alpha. Make sure you always join us live to be a part of the conversation, because unlike Star Wars, you can’t go back in time if you miss out.

We still want to hear your thoughts on today’s show, so share yours with us in the comments below.
