There are many DCEU projects currently in development, but one of the most exciting of the bunch is Wonder Woman 2. The project will reunite original Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins with Gal Gadot for another Diana Prince adventure, and the evidence that we have suggest that we're due for something quite different from what we've seen before. Specifically, it looks like the film will take Diana Prince to the 1980s.
On that note, it's worth wondering (pun intended) what DC characters could show up in the film. We already know that Kristen Wiig is set to debut as Barbara "Cheetah" Minerva in the sequel, but the 1980s setting could serve as the springboard for plenty of other characters as well. With that in mind, we have put together a list of heroes and villains who realistically could show up in Wonder Woman 2's 1980s-set adventure on November 1, 2019, and we are going to kick things off with none other than the second Blue Beetle.
One of the best things about comic book universes is the fact that legacy characters can keep specific personas going for decades. We see this in print all of the time, with one of DC's most beloved legacy characters is Ted Kord a.k.a Blue Beetle. The promotional material for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice suggested that Kord Industries does indeed exist in the DCEU (along with Oliver Queen's company), so it would be easy for the folks behind Wonder Woman 2 to flesh that idea out even further to introduce Kord as Beetle in the 1980s. They could then pave the way for him to potentially hand the Blue Beetle mantle off to Jaime Reyes in the present era, which is precisely what happened in Young Justice Season 2.
In a DCEU movie that is going to play with a different setting than anything that we have seen before, it behooves DC to take advantage of the characters who don't age like normal humans. The Amazons already fulfill that role, but if the folks behind Wonder Woman 2 need a similarly immortal villain, then they should look at Vandal Savage. The iconic DC baddie is a hyper-intelligent caveman granted knowledge and an infinite lifespan due to exposure to the radiation of a mysterious meteorite. Many fans have already begun to theorize that Vandal Savage exists in the DCEU based off of evidence supposedly planted in Batman v Superman (though those theories have yet to receive confirmation), so he would be a natural fit for the 1980s Wonder Woman 2 setting.
