Wonder Woman, who, after becoming a global symbol of strength and quality for more than 75 years, finally got to tell the tale of how she came to be the heroic iconic she is today with the help of the outstanding Patty Jenkins last month, finally has a release date for her highly anticipated sequel.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. has confirmed that Gal Gadot, who shined the title role alongside Chris Pine and his charming Steve Trevor, will return for the follow-up which the studio has dated December 13, 2019. As per the original report, Jenkins, who made history with Wonder Woman by breaking Fifty Shades of Grey helmer Sam Taylor-Johnson’s record for best domestic opening for a female director, is still in talks to direct the sequel.
When Wonder Woman opened in theaters last month, it became the sixth-best June opening of all time with its impressive $100.5 million box office return amid rave reviews from both critics and audiences alike. The film followed the Amazonian princess as she leaves her home island with a stranded American pilot to fight in the war to end all wars while discovering her full powers and true destiny.
Gadot’s next appearance as Diana Prince is just a mere months away in this November’s superhero ensemble Justice League, which had a pretty large presence at San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend where they premiered a 4-minute long extended trailer for the upcoming installment in the DC Extended Universe.
