One of the biggest surprises of 2017 was the Warner Bros smash WONDER WOMAN. Out of all of the DCU films, I never thought that Wonder Woman would get the reception it received. Up until 2 weeks ago, it was the highest grossing film of the year.
Director Patty Jenkins announced that the next film will be another stand-alone adventure. That pretty much means Warner Bros is pretty much giving up on the continuity of the DC universe, which is a shame.
Speaking to ET Online Patty said:
“We’re actually making a totally different film with a lot of the same, similar like things that we love, but it’s its own movie completely, so it’s not ‘two’ to us,” Jenkins said. “It’s an entirely new adventure together that we couldn’t be luckier [to do].”
Patty Jenkins also talked about including Lynda Carter having a cameo in the Wonder Woman sequel.
“We’ll see,” Jenkins said of including Carter. “Lynda is one of the dearest people to us, has been a great mentor and dear friend. And we actually desperately tried to get her in the first one and we had the scheduling that couldn’t work, so she’s always been a part of our Wonder Woman family. We won’t say anything yet, but we certainly—there’s no lack of trying.”
Rumors for the sequel include that it may be set during the 1980s during the Cold War featuring Cheetah.
The Wonder Woman sequel hits November 1, 2019.
