For many, the Wonder Woman film was DC’s true “last chance” to make a successful film. After the lukewarm (but profitable) outings of Man of Steel, Batman V Superman, and Suicide Squad, the DCEU need a critical hit, not just a financial one. And Wonder Woman did that in spades. Not only is it the highest grossing film in the DCEU (which is impressive) in many respects, it now holds the record for the highest grossing superhero film in North America. Which was previously held by the first Spider-Man film.
At San Diego Comic Con, the sequel was officially confirmed, and now, we have a release date of December 2019. Patty Jenkins has been long-rumored to be making the sequel, though reports of a confirmed deal are conflicting. The script however is being made right now with Jenkins and Geofff Johns.
The big question here is what the next film will be about. The time period could be the key here, will it be after the events of World War I but before the events of BVS? Or, will it take place in the world after the Justice League film? It’s very hard to say, but we’re very interested in finding out.
