The Hollywood Reporter has revealed The Expendables co-writer Dave Callaham has signed on to write the highly-anticipated Wonder Woman sequel.
Callaham will write the script based on a treatment that director Patty Jenkins and DC creative chief officer Geoff Johns have been developing for several months.
The announcement of Callaham comes just days after it was revealed that Jenkins had closed a deal to co-write, produce, and direct the sequel starring Gal Gadot as the titular superheroine, although the sequel’s announcement came during the studio’s presentation at San Diego Comic-Con.
Plot details for the sequel remain under wraps but Warner Bros. is set to dial the clock back for the film as it will once again be a period piece, only this time we’ll follow Gadot as the Amazonian Princess during the Cold War as she faces off against the Soviet Union in the 1980s.
Wonder Woman is available on Digital HD August 29, and will be released on Blu-ray and DVD September 19. You can check out our review on Heroic Insider Rebirth here.
Wonder Woman 2 is currently slated to hit theaters December 13, 2019. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the DCEU as we learn it.
7 Wonder Woman Villains Perfect For Future Sequels
Now that Wonder Woman is officialy getting a sequel, it’s time to start fantasizing about what we’ll see in the character’s next cinematic solo outing and beyond. Wonder Woman has a rich rogues gallery that has transformed and grown alongside her as she’s become one of the world’s most iconic heroes.
Ares, the Greek god of war, was the main villain for Wonder Woman’s first outing, but DC is gonna need to shake things up for future projects. Diana Prince has already proved herself a terrific warrior in Batman v Superman when she took on Doomsday, so I’m excited to see who the creators want to throw at her next. She doesn’t need a full team beside her — Wonder Woman is warrior enough to defend the innocent from all types of threats.
