After an amazing showing at the box office and still continuing to make money, it has officially been confirmed that Patty Jenkins will direct the sequel to the immensely successful Wonder Woman.
The story was broken by Variety today and states the film which the script is being written with Geoff Johns, (who oversees the DC film universe) is set to arrive in theaters December 13, 2019.
Gal Gadot is also set to return as the titular Heroine who is Princess Diana of Themyscira with an alter ego of Diana Prince. After a captivating debut in Batman V. Superman and then a phenomenal solo film debut, Gadot is set to lasso in audiences again in the upcoming Justice League movie due out this November.
All we were waiting for was what’s considered an official release date announcement, now we have that.
Now we know the Princess of Themyscria will be back on the big screen in time for the 2019 holiday season.
Warner Bros. announced Tuesday that Wonder Woman 2 is officially slated to hit theaters Dec. 13, 2019, a date the studio recently staked out for an undisclosed “WB event film.” The sequel will also be screened in IMAX.
The first Wonder Woman movie, directed by Patty Jenkins and starring Gal Gadot in the title role, opened to strong reviews in June and has raked in more than $389 million at the domestic box office, making it the highest-grossing film of the summer. Making a sequel was a no-brainer, and Warner Bros. confirmed it would do so over the weekend at Comic-Con.
