Another interesting tidbit from Zack Snyder’s live commentary for Batman v Superman, which is currently happening on VERO, is that the war photo of Diana aka Wonder Woman is actually from The Crimean War, as the script hadn’t locked-down the solo film’s setting and they also considered using The American Civil War.
Originally for the Wonder Woman photo in BvS, Diana was in the Crimean War instead of the Great War. Another concept Zack floated was having her in the American Civil War. This was before they cracked the story for the WW solo movie. #BatmanvSuperman #BvS4Years pic.twitter.com/fUKmIT5xKv

The Crimean War took place between 1853-1856 in the Crimean Peninsula between Russians and the British, French, and Ottoman Turkish. Seeing Diana going even further back in time might have been interesting, I’m sort of glad they nixed the Civil War idea.
Eventually, they ended up pivoting to The Great War and the second film seemingly covering The Cold War during 1984 with the fall of Soviet Union on the horizon.
Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman 1984 had recently been bumped back to a release date of August 14th from it’s June 5th spot.
