IMAX Corp. executive Greg Foster announced that Warner Bros. and DC’s Wonder Woman 2 will be partially shot with IMAX cameras
Wonder Woman opened to critical acclaim and broke box office records throughout 2017, leaving audiences eager to see another adventure featuring the DC Comics heroine. With a sequel reportedly set to begin production this summer, IMAX Corp executive has now revealed that select sequences from the highly-anticipated film will be shot with IMAX cameras:
“I’m excited to announce that Wonder Woman 2, which comes out in the second half of 2019, will be shot with IMAX film cameras in select sequences. This Warner Brothers DC production, the sequel of the global juggernaut from 2017, is directed by Patti Jenkins and produced by Chuck Roven and Rebecca Oakley Roven. And we couldn’t be more excited that IMAX has been chosen to be a part of the film’s design.”
Plot details for the Wonder Woman sequel are currently under wraps, though the film is said to follow the Amazonian Princess during the Cold War as she faces off against the Soviet Union in the 1980s.
Patty Jenkins will return to direct, co-write and produce the Wonder Woman sequel, working from a script by The Expendables co-writer Dave Callaham. The script is based on a treatment by Jenkins and DC President and Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns.
Wonder Woman 2 stars Gal Gadot as the titular heroine, Kristen Wiig as Cheetah, and Pedro Pascal in an undisclosed role.
Wonder Woman 2 is currently scheduled to be released in theaters on November 1, 2019.
10 DC Storylines We Want To See Adapted In The DC Extended Universe
The DC Extended Universe has drawn inspiration from plenty of iconic storylines from DC Comics. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice drew inspiration from both The Dark Knight Returns and Death of Superman, while Suicide Squad adapted the popular lineup from the New 52 launch and the stage is set for Flashpoint.
DC Comics is filled with great iconic storylines that could inspire a film slate for decades and still barely scratch the surface of the rich mythology. DC would be wise to not make a straight adaptation of any of these classic storylines, but draw inspiration from them. They can still remain true to the original intent of the work without being a straight adaptation. If you need proof take a look at how Captain America: Civil War pretty much only uses the broad concept of a superhero registration but creates essentially an original storyline that makes sense within that universe based off the comic. Or how Batman Begins draws elements from The Man Who Falls, Batman: Year One and Batman: The Long Halloween without making a page to page adaptation.
The storylines chosen are not just because of how great they were as original comics (which they were) but also the storytelling possibilities they open up. Basically how different they would be from other superhero projects or just ways they could grow the universe.
