Don't worry DCEU fans, Wonder Woman 2 will arrive in November 2019!
Believe it or not, it took over a month after the successful release of the first film that Wonder Woman 2 was confirmed. Before then, it was just assumed that Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment would make a sequel to its most popular film yet. With Wonder Woman having taken in over $800 million worldwide, this was an easy win.
Wonder Woman 2 Cast
That Hashtag Show, who are often on the ball with TV scoops but whose movie record is spotty, claim that the villain of Wonder Woman 2 is the Cheetah, specifically the Barbara Ann Minerva version of the character. They also claim that Chris Pine and Ewen Bremner, and Saïd Taghmaoui are returning, so make of that what you will.
Wonder Woman 2 Story
Like something ripped from today’s headlines, Diana might be taking on the Soviet Union in Wonder Woman 2. ScreenRant were the first to report (and this was confirmed by The Wrap) that plans are taking shape for Wonder Woman 2 to take place in the 1980s, with a focus on Diana’s efforts at the end of the Cold War. Director Patty Jenkins is currently working with DC CCO Geoff Johns on the early plans for the film.
Patty Jenkins has already mentioned that she planned to have Wonder Woman 2 set in America. In an interview with EW, Ms. Jenkins said that Wonder Woman 2 “will take place in the US, which I think is right. She’s Wonder Woman. She’s got to come to America. It’s time.” Since it’s unlikely that the movie will play up the Russians as straight villains (much like how they handled the Germans in the first film’s World War I setting), this could turn out be a matter of Diana averting an unintended nuclear armageddon. In any case, don’t expect this to be a situation like Superman IV: The Quest For Peace where the hero tries to rid the world of all nuclear weapons or anything like that.
Although it also sounds like Patty Jenkins is at least a little excited to tell a more modern Diana story. “The most exciting thing,” she told ET Online, “is literally seeing her loose in the world now, living those classic stories,” added Jenkins. “Here’s Wonder Woman, and what can she do? It should be a totally different movie, but a grand and now full-blown Wonder Woman in the world.”
Wonder Woman 2 Release Date
