With Wonder Woman’s opening weekend at the box office both domestically and internationally off to a hot start, along with both strong critical and word of mouth reviews, it won’t be long before we hear of a sequel getting underway. Yea, we still have to get through the upcoming November 17th release of the Justice League movie first, but the Amazon will almost certainly be back with Wonder Woman 2.
It was back in April when director Patty Jenkins was giving an interview with Entertainment Weekly and she was already thinking about the storyline for a second Wonder Woman film. Not surprisingly she didn’t go into details but she did tell them:
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.
Then I realized that Wonder Woman 2 is its own great movie. I made Wonder Woman. Now I want to make Wonder Woman 2. It’s a beautiful story to tell, an important time to tell it and with people that I love.
Both Jenkins and Gal Gadot are already on board for the sequel, according to THR:
And if it all goes according to plan, Jenkins is more than ready to return to the character for a contemporary-set Wonder Woman sequel (she and Gadot are contractually committed to a second film).
So, that all sounds like a promising start — Wonder Woman comes to America in Wonder Woman 2… and it’ll be completely fascinating to see how they handle the history between WWI and the present day.
