Warner Bros.' Wonder Woman might still be screening in theaters worldwide, but that doesn’t mean the studio hasn’t already started planning for the superhero sequel. While Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins has yet to officially announce she will direct the follow-up, it sounds like plans are moving forward and a release date may be on the horizon.
The news comes courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter columnist Pamela McClintock, who tweeted that an untitled film set to be produced by DC Films and Warner Bros. Studios has been set for a summer release in 2020. Though neither movie studio has confirmed as much, there’s a good chance this could be the release date for Wonder Woman 2 if production schedules line up.
Rumors have already begun to swirl about what the next Wonder Woman movie might bring, including speculation that the film could be headed to the ‘80s and see the return of Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor. Wonder Woman recently became Warner Bros.’ third biggest domestic release of all time, netting roughly $380 million in the United States – a sequel is all but assured.
It remains to be seen if the rumored release date rings true, but Comic-Con International: San Diego throws open its doors this Thursday, so there’s a good chance fans will learn more as the show unfolds. Warner Bros.' movie panel will be held on Saturday, and CBR will be on-hand to live blog the presentation.
Currently screening in theaters, Wonder Woman is a production of DC Films directed by Patty Jenkins and starring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Connie Nielsen and Elena Anaya.
