Paradise Found?

The paradise island of Themyscira

The Paradise Island Of Themyscira

The waves gently lap at the golden shores of the paradise island known as Themyscira, this idyllic setting is the ancient home of the Amazons, a race of immortal warrior women created by the Greek Gods of Olympus over three thousand years ago. Hidden from the outside world, the Amazons lived on Themyscira untouched by society for millennia, perfecting their skills as warriors and artisans.

Warner Brothers are readying their team to begin production on the 2017 film “Wonder Woman” and news surfaced today of the possible location of the Amazons’ secret island of Themyscira. Basilicata is a region in the south of Italy, set amongst the beautiful mountainous area of the Apennines. During Greek and Roman ages it was known as Lucania, named after the ancient Greek tribes of the region, and is now looking like it will also double as the utopian isle of the fabled Amazons.

The film is initially being produced under the name Nightingale, a possible reference to the character Seiji Kato, an Earth 2 assassin who made her first appearance in Wonder Woman #317 in 1984. Starring Gal Gadot as the titular heroine and actor Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, the film is being directed by Patty Jenkins, written by Jason Fuchs and filmed by Hoyte Van Hoytema, director of photography on productions such as Interstellar and The Fighter.

Stay tuned for more news on the exciting development of Diana’s first big screen outing, fellow fans of the amazing Amazon.
