Zack Snyder Says He Will Stay on as Producer for Wonder Woman 2

Zack Snyder No Three-Hour-Long Movies

Zack Snyder's involvement with the DC Extended Universe has been rocky since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. While a personal tragedy took him off Justice League towards the end, there were rumors that he'd actually been fired, though later reports suggested those rumors were false. Still, while he may not be directing any future DC films for Warner Bros., Snyder will continue to serve as a producer on Wonder Woman 2.

In a Vero post showcasing actor Ezra Miller in the Flash costume for the first fitting, Snyder was asked by a fan if he would continue to be a producer on the Wonder Woman sequel. While the director was quick to respond, he kept his answer short and sweet, simply saying: "Oh yes."

This news, of course, shouldn't be entirely surprising. Following the director's departure from Justice League, it was revealed that despite the studio opting not to bring him back for any future DC films, he would continue to receive executive producing credits on Aquaman and Wonder Woman 2.

Details surrounding the sequel to the highly successful Wonder Woman remain sparse, although production is expected to begin "shockingly soon." What we do know is that Kristen Wiig is set to play Wonder Woman's arch-nemesis, Cheetah, and that it'll be set in the 1980s, taking the character from the World War I setting of the original film to the Cold War era.
