Wonder Woman 2’ Development Confirmed By Zack Snyder, invisible jet sounds likely

Wonder Woman may be arriving in theaters, but Warner Bros is already developing a sequel to their first female-led superhero film.

Director Zack Snyder has revealed that Warner Bros. is already planning the Wonder Woman sequel, dropping the news during the Wonder Woman red carpet Shanghai press event.

Arthur Wong, who was in attendance for the presentation, says that Deborah Snyder, co-founder of Cruel and Unusual Films and producer of the DCEU movies, clarified that the next DC female-led superhero movie would be Joss Whedon’s Batgirl.

Wong offers a ton of updates on his Twitter feed and photos from the presentation. That said, not of this is official.

Wonder Woman is projecting anywhere from a $65 to $105 million opening weekend.

Gal Gadot will be reprising her role as the Amazonian warrior in the Justice League team-up movie, which is set to hit theaters on November 17, 2017. A sequel to that film was originally announced for June 14, 2019, but appears to be delayed.

At WonderCon, DC head Geoff Johns was unable to confirm a Wonder Woman 2 as part of the company’s slate of superhero movies. That said, Warner Bros. could make a sequel announcement as early as San Diego Comic-Con this July.

Director Patty Jenkins may or not return for a second film, but it seems likely. Johns said at a DC films-related reception that he and Jenkins had finally figured out how to bring Wonder Woman’s invisible jet to the big screen, which seems to suggest she’s involved in sequel talks.

Jenkins has expressed her excitement to work on future Wonder Woman films: “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. 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. I can’t wait to spring forward with who she is and have another great standalone superhero film.”

The film also stars Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, Connie Nielsen, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner, Lucy Davis, Lisa Loven Kongsli, Eugene Brave Rock, Ewen Bremner, and Saïd Taghmaoui.

Wonder Woman opens in theaters on June 2nd.
