Social media network Tumblr has released its annual Year In Review, and Warner Bros.' Wonder Woman landed the top spot as the most popular movie of 2017.
Wonder Woman wasn't the only superhero film to make the Tumblr Fandometrics top 30. Other entries include Black Panther (which doesn't come out until 2018), Guardians of the Galaxy, Logan, Thor: Ragnarok, Justice League, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Avengers: Infinity War, and Doctor Strange.
2017 has been a banner year for DC Comics' popular Amazon. Along with the Tumblr award, her solo film is in consideration for the Academy Awards, and is also the highest-grossing superhero origin movie ever.
The untitled Wonder Woman sequel will follow Diana of Themyscira’s adventures after World War I into the Cold War of the ’80s. Rumors had surfaced in the past that Jenkins was looking at another period piece and that this battle against the Soviets was the most likely option. No production locations were included in the report, but as far as casting goes Jenkins is already lining up Chris Pine to return for the “full-blown” sequel. It’s set to film in June 2018 for a December 2019 release.
Available now on digital HD, Blu-ray and DVD, 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.
