Wonder Woman is a resounding critical and commercial success, earning more than $380 million (and counting) domestically to become the top-grossing film in the DC Extended Universe. Yet, despite those accomplishments and comments by director Patty Jenkins and others, there hasn't been an announcement by Warner Bros. about a sequel.
However, that may be about to change. According to The Hollywood Reporter, "if all goes as planned," the studio will make the sequel official this week at Comic-Con International in San Diego, the obvious venue for major superhero-movie announcements.
The news comes as Wonder Woman reached $380.7 million at the domestic box office, on its way past the U.S. total of 2011's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows -- Part 2 ($381 million). That will make Jenkins' film Warner Bros.' third-biggest domestic release of all time (not adjusted for inflation), behind Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight ($533.3 million) and The Dark Knight Rises ($448.1 million).
The Hollywood Reporter notes that Wonder Woman appears destined to become the top-grossing movie of summer 2017 in North America, surpassing Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ($386.6 million to date).
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.
