Geoff Johns Says DC Films Need Heart, Humor & Heroics; Won’t Confirm ‘Wonder Woman 2’

Wonder Woman WonderCon

At the Warner Bros. Wonder Con panel that took place earlier this evening in Anaheim, California, President and Chief Creative Officer at DC Comics, Geoff Johns, was asked whether or not there would be a Wonder Woman sequel in the works.

“I can’t confirm that.”

You can check out the tweet from the panel below.

Although Johns can’t yet confirm anything regarding a sequel, probably because the film hasn’t come out yet, but a sequel at this point wouldn’t be a surprise.

Other new things to come out of the panel was new footage shown from the Wonder Woman movie. In the new footage shown, Wonder Woman is seen fighting a group of guys, throwing herself through a window, and more. This footage hasn’t been released online yet, but keep checking back with Heroic Hollywood for more information.

You can check out some descriptions from the footage below.

Johns also mentioned that what the DC films need are “heart, humor, and heroics” and they should be fine. However, since the panel was primarily about Wonder Woman, was Johns just talking about all upcoming films in the DCEU? Some of the biggest criticisms of the past films, like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, is that they lack heart and humor and go more for the heroics only.

Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers… and her true destiny.

Directed by Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, David Thewlis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner and Saïd Taghmaoui.

Wonder Woman will be in theaters June 2, 2017.

    Playing politics with the little people. Can’t confirm that [yet, can’t deny it either].

    DC films need “Heart, humor, and heroics” and they will just be fine? Well, so far the films have had one of those.

      You mean humor, right? As in they are so bad they’re funny?
