One of DC’s unclaimed slots on their list of film premieres has been filled. “Wonder Woman 2,” starring Gal Gadot as the legendary superhero, will premiere Dec. 13, 2019, according to Variety.
The publication reported last month that Geoff Johns, a higher-up to oversees DC film projects at Warner Bros., said he and director Patty Jenkins are already working on a potential script. He also revealed that they’ve already thought up a “cool idea” for the “Wonder Woman” sequel. Jenkins hasn’t officially signed on to the “Wonder Woman” sequel, but it seems like it’s only a matter of time.

Jenkins has hinted that the superhero sequel be set in 1980’s America, decades after the event of the first film, according to Screen Rant. This would mean Diana Price would be fighting the Soviet Union at the tail end of the Cold War. There have also been rumors that Chris Pine (“Star Trek Into Darkness”) will return for “Wonder Woman 2,” though (spoilers) his character Steve Trevor died at the end of “Wonder Woman.” On the original “Wonder Woman” tv show, the actor who played Steve Trevor returned as Steve Trevor Jr. and became Diana’s new beau. But as Digital Spy notes, that’s a bit too creepy of a storyline to bring back.
Awards Circuit previously reported “Wonder Woman” already made film history just weeks after its release, becoming the highest grossing live action film helmed by a female director. According to Variety, “Wonder Woman” has currently grossed $389 million domestically and $390 million internationally, earning a whooping $779 million for DC and Warner Bros.
“Wonder Woman 2” premieres Dec. 13, 2019. Catch Gadot as Wonder Woman in the upcoming DC film “Justice League.” Watch the trailer below.
