Patty Jenkins’ stunning depiction of the homeland of the Amazons and Diana just about steals the show in Wonder Woman’s early moments. Things get a bit muddled though when you try and discover just where the famed island exists in the real world.
There are a few landmarks that fans can use when trying to sort out where Themyscira is located. In the scene where Steve Trevor steals Doctor Poison’s notebook, the location is classified as Turkey (via UPROXX). His plane lands in Themyscira during his journey to London, a trip they end up completing by boat from Themyscira (with the aid of a tugboat).
That means it is somewhere in between those two points, but there’s a problem with that theory.
If you measure that in real world travel, he and Diana would have traveled through well known and frequently traveled places like the Mediterranean Sea, Aegean Sea, Ionian Sea, the Black Sea, as well as the English Channel. Even with the fog and shield, there’s little chance that others would not have found Themyscira.
That means the most probable option is that it moves locations every so often so that no one can find their way back to it. That would also explain why if one leaves they cannot return, as they would not be able to pin down an exact location again without the aid of someone living there.
Of course, it could also mean Themyscira exists within some sort of time displacement or alternate dimension, but the above theory seems more accurate.
