While most of what we knew about Wonder Woman 1984 was slim, over the past year, things have come to light, helping form a fuller picture of what Diana Prince will be up against in the sequel. Unlike Wonder Woman which was set during World War I, the sequel will follow Diana Prince in the ’80s, before the events of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

The Mission: Impossible franchise has long been a global espionage action thriller, featuring locations all over the world. So, right now, Mission: Impossible 7 is filming in Norway. According to Variety, the production didn’t consider the hotels good enough to house their crew, due to COVID-19 concerns, so they rented two cruise ships from the company Hurtigruten.
So Safin’s going to get pretty close to Madeleine with his plot of vengeance, and the possibilities for why this grudge exists are far and wide in potential. Anything from his grudge with Dr. Swann reaching back to a particular event in her childhood, to something she may have done pre-Spectre as a practicing psychologist, are up for grabs. Whatever it is, it’s really personal, and Safin isn’t afraid to take his rage out on the world at large in No Time To Die.

In the years since Man of Steel‘s release, plenty of DC Extended Universe has continued to grow and include visions other than Zack Snyder’s. And although Warner Bros. is showing no signs of slowing down, there’s been no word as to whether or not Man of Steel will ever get its sequel. Henry Cavill appeared in two other blockbusters as Superman, but a second solo flick hasn’t come.

I like writing people who are different from myself, but you’ve got to kind of hang it on somebody that you know, or knew. There’s an awful lot of my dad in Herman. I was raised in a small lake town in Wisconsin, and my dad was… he lived until 86, and he was fiercely determined to do everything himself. Like a lot of parents, they do things long past the point at which we wish they wouldn’t do them. Including, you know, cleaning out the gutters and things that we feel are risky. But as I get older, I’m 57, and I haven’t had to start giving up a lot of things yet. Except maybe gin, which… that was a good one to give up. But I haven’t started that process of losing things, of losing the ability to do things. And I understand why you want to say, ‘No, I don’t care. I’m keeping it! I’m going to keep doing this because that’s the way I want to live my life.’ And, ‘What happens to my life is my decision and my problem.’ And adult children can disagree pretty strongly with that. And that’s a pretty fertile dramatic theme to mine.
