The DC Comics film Wonder Woman, starring Gal Gadot, has since its release quickly become a box office and critical success. Given its success, it should come as no surprise that a sequel is already in development, with Patty Jenkins and Geoff Johns writing the treatment.
But it looks like we could be getting news on the Wonder Woman sequel as early as this week. The Hollywood Reporter revealed today that if everything goes as planned, Warner Bros. will announce the official release date for the sequel which would supposedly be directed by Jenkins once again.
“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.”
Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman, starring Gal Gadot as Diana Prince, Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Lucy Davis as Etta Candy, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Robin Wright as General Antiope, 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, is now playing in theaters.
