We knew it would be coming, and now we have a date: Warner Bros has announced a release date for Wonder Woman 2: December 13, 2019.
It was previously reported that the setting for the sequel may shift from World War I to the 1980s and that director Patty Jenkins is expected to return for the sequel, which was officially announced during the Warners panel in Hall H at last week’s Comic Con. DC Entertainment President and Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns has already begun work on the sequel.
Wonder Woman (see our review) is already the highest-grossing DC Extended Universe film, with US$389 million earned domestically and $390 million internationally. So you can be sure that Warners will be doing their damndest to get it right.
But one can only hope that Wonder Woman 2 won’t be beset by the extensive reshoots that Justice League is currently undergoing. Diana of Themyscira is literally the bright, shining hope of the DCEU right now, and we want it to stay that way.
