Warner Bros. is reportedly set to move up the production schedule on Wonder Woman 2, with filming expected to begin in late May.
Director Patty Jenkins' film was initially targeted to start principal photography this summer in England, but now Omega Underground contends that date has moved up slightly to May 28. No reason was given for the shift.
Details have been few and far between regarding about the sequel to the 2017 blockbuster, but the latest rumors have Kristen Wiig set to play Diana of Themyscira's arch-nemesis, Cheetah. Previously, Jenkins said she intends for the sequel to be “totally different” from its acclaimed predecessor. The film is widely expected to be set in the 1980s, moving Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman decades through time, from the World War I backdrop of the original
Wonder Woman opened in June 2017 to critical and commercial acclaim before going on to gross nearly $822 million worldwide. The film was the first undisputed hit for the struggling DC Extended Universe, following the mixed receptions for Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad.
Wonder Woman 2 arrives in theaters Nov. 1, 2019.
