Omega Underground is reporting that Wonder Woman 2 will undergo principal photography in the United States this summer.
Production begins on the highly-anticipated DC Extended Universe sequel on May 28, 2018 and Omega Underground claims that some filming will occur around Northern Virginia/District of Columbia. This supports a quote from director Patty Jenkins, who told Entertainment Weekly the following:
“The story will take place in the U.S., which I think is right. She’s Wonder Woman. She’s got to come to America. It’s time.”
Omega Underground speculates that given the presence of Washington D.C., the White House and the C.I.A., the U.S. government may have involvement in the story given the Cold War setting of the film.
Are you excited to see Wonder Woman 2 preparing for production to start with scenes to be filmed stateside? Sound off in the comments below, and be sure to continue following Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news in the DCEU.
Plot details for Wonder Woman 2 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.
Jenkins will return to direct, co-write and produce Wonder Woman 2, 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. Gal Gadot is set to reprise her role as the titular heroine with Kristen Wiig confirmed to play the antagonist Cheetah. The sequel is set to begin production on May 28th, with filming expected to take place in the United Kingdom.
Wonder Woman 2 is currently scheduled to be released in theaters on November 1, 2019.

10 Female Directors Who Could Helm DC’s Batgirl Movie
Batgirl was a project nobody knew was coming. It wasn’t part of the original DC Films slate back when it was announced in 2014. Yet in March 2017 it was announced that former The Avengers director Joss Whedon had been chosen by Warner Bros. and DC to helm a Batgirl movie. No progress was made on the project, but it seemed Warner Bros. was serious in the film as they announced it as part of their lineup at Comic-Con in 2017.
Yet after a year, Joss Whedon departed Batgirl. It isn’t known if Warner Bros. will still continue to actively pursue the film or if they will shelve it. It does appear though that the studio does plan to pick a woman to direct the film if they decide to move forward with the project. There are plenty of women working in Hollywood that would jump at the chance to direct a superhero film and plenty that would bring a unique perspective to the character.
These are just ten wonderful directors that could helm DC’s Batgirl movie. Click Next to get started!
