Wonder Woman producer Charles Roven has revealed Warner Bros. has no plans for a sequel to the first female-led installment of the DCEU, yet.
While the film has yet to hit theaters, fans are already buzzing with excitement thanks to overwhelmingly positive reactions from critics who have seen the film. Naturally, the focus has shifted to the future of the franchise with what will hopefully be Gal Gadot returning for another outing as the Amazonian princess along with director Patty Jenkins once again behind the lens.
During a recent interview with Joblo, Roven was asked whether or not there was any thought to Jenkins returning to helm another installment when he revealed a sequel has to go into development:
“I think that she is going to have a lot of options after this movie [Laughing],” Roven said. “I believe that she’s dedicated to the character. So I’m hopeful that she’ll be back for another one. But there is no other one yet in the works to commit to.”
The film stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Robin Wright as General Antiope, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Lisa Loven Kongsli as Menalippe, Danny Huston as General Erich Ludendorff, David Thewlis as Sir Patrick Morgan, Elena Anaya as Doctor Maru, Ewen Bremner as Charlie, Saïd Taghmaoui as Sameer and Eugene Brave Rock as the Chief. Here’s the official synopsis:
’Wonder Woman’ hits movie theaters around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins. 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.
Wonder Woman hits theaters June 2, 2017.
