“Wonder Woman” broke records becoming the highest-grossing opening weekend at the box office for a female director with an estimated $100 million.
Director Patty Jenkins is already on board for a sequel and she has an idea of exactly what it will be about.
Warner Bros. hasn’t made the news official yet, but a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter stated Jenkins and Gadot are “contractually committed” to a second Wonder Woman film.
Jenkins has already hinted at what a sequel would entail. It will catapult Diana Prince into the future.
“I’m excited for her to come to America and become the Wonder Woman we are all familiar with from having grown up around her as an American superhero,” Jenkins told the Sun back in April. “I’d like to bring her a little farther along into the future and have a fun, exciting storyline that is its own thing.”
“Wonder Woman 1 is so much about her becoming the person she is,” she added. “I can’t wait to spring forward with who she is and have another great standalone superhero film.”
