Although talks are said to still be underway between Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins and Warner Bros. regarding a sequel to the DCEU movie, a DC Film’s Jon Berg and Geoff Johns appear to ahve confirmed that Jenkins is essentially locked in for Wonder Woman 2.
During a recent interview with Variety, Johns revealed that he has already begun writing the treatment for a Wonder Woman sequel alongside Jenkins, promising that they’ve got a “cool idea” for the follow-up.
“Patty and I are writing the treatment right now,” Johns said. “The goal is to make another great Wonder Woman film. I had a blast making it with Patty the first time. We’ve got a cool idea for the second one.”
Jenkins, who has been very vocal about wanting to return for the sequel, has previously mentioned that she’d love to bring Diana to the United States for the second movie. However, it hasn’t been made entirely clear when the second film would take place — would it be before Batman v Superman, or after Justice League? According to Toby Emmerich, president and chief content officer of Warner Bros., the sequel will take place in the past, “somewhere between 1917 and 2017.”
With Joss Whedon currently at work on the reshoots for Justice League, many expected to see Wonder Woman’s role in the superhero team-up flick increased as a result. However, according to Jon Berg, Diana’s role in the film was already substantial even before Wonder Woman hit theaters, and will not change in reshoots.
“Her role won’t change, but she was already playing a big role,” Berg explained. “People really responded to Gal [Gadot] in Batman v. Superman. We knew we had something special.”
To date, Wonder Woman has earned an impressive $573 million at the worldwide box office and is on track to pass the highly-coveted $300 million mark at the domestic box office within the coming weeks.
In theaters now, Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot as Diana, Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Robin Wright as General Antiope, Danny Huston as General Erich Ludendorff, David Thewlis as Ares, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Elena Anaya as Doctor Poison and Lucy Davis as Etta Candy.
