Robin Wright has stated that if the DC Extended Universe needs more of her character (General Antiope), she’ll be willing to come back – especially for the Wonder Woman sequel.
Speaking to E!, Robin Wright explained that she wouldn’t hesitate to return for Wonder Woman 2 if asked:
“I would absolutely return and do a sequel – for sure. C’mon – girl power!”
As is stands, Antiope was slain at the beginning of Wonder Woman when German forces chased American spy Steve Trevor into the hidden world of Themyscira, taking a bullet to save Diana (the future Wonder Woman) before letting her know of her greater destiny. Antiope will be appearing again in Justice League, but only in a flashback sequence near the beginning of the film. Antiope could be resurrected in Wonder Woman 2 somehow, but her role will most likely be reserved to flashback scenes presuming that she’s even part of the movie. Wright’s full remarks can be seen below:
Wonder Woman is now available on home video. Its cast includes Gal Gadot as Diana Prince (Wonder Woman), Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Robin Wright as General Antiope, Lucy Davis as Etta Candy, David Thewlis as Sir Patrick Morgan, Elena Anaya as Doctor Isabel Maru (Doctor Poison), and Danny Huston as General Erich Ludendorff.
Wonder Woman 2 is in development with a tentative release date of December 13, 2019 (which is likely to move due to Star Wars Episode IX now releasing a week later). Confirmed to return are Gal Gadot as Diana Prince (Wonder Woman) and Chris Pine as Steve Trevor.
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.
