With Wonder Woman receiving critical acclaim and making a strong debut at the box office so far, hopes for a sequel to the titular heroines first live-action feature film are at all-time high. Now, The Hollywood Reporter appears to have confirmed that star Gal Gadot and director Patty Jenkins are contractually attached to a second Wonder Woman film.
THR’s piece adds that Jenkins is ready to set the film in contemporary times, though this contradicts Jenkins’ statement in an interview with Uproxx, where the filmmaker revealed that plans for the sequel including setting it roughly around the 1930s:
“It is for sure – I’m definitely planning something more interesting using that period of time. Definitely, it’s the plan. I can’t say what it is! But it’s definitely right in the pocket of what you’re talking about.”
Warner Bros. declined to comment when io9 reached out for clarification, though producer Charles Roven’s comments on how there are currently no plans being developed for a second film would suggest that a setting for the potential sequel remains undecided.
