Warner Bros. has scheduled a release date for a sequel to its hit superhero film “Wonder Woman,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Actress Gal Galdot will return to theaters as the title character in “Wonder Woman 2” on Dec. 13, 2019, Warner Bros. reportedly announced late Tuesday.
“Wonder Woman” director Patty Jenkins is purportedly in ongoing talks to helm the sequel, but has not been announced as officially part of the project.
The first “Wonder Woman” film is reportedly performing better than any superhero movie in 15 years at the North American box office.
The flick has grossed more than $389 million in the U.S. to date, according to The Reporter, and it surpassed totals for Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” last weekend.
Some Twitter users on Wednesday celebrated the return of “Wonder Woman,” a beloved superheroine who originated in DC Comics.
Galdot will next appear as Wonder Woman and her alter-ego, Diana Prince, in “Justice League” this November.
“Justice League” features a roster of DC Comics’ biggest superheroes, including Batman (played by actor Ben Affleck) and Aquaman (played by actor Jason Momoa).
“Wonder Woman 2” is reportedly the only move with a Dec. 13, 2019 release date so far, and it joins “Justice League” and “Aquaman” as the only DC films with release dates.
“Aquaman” is due out Dec. 21, 2018, and Warner Bros. reportedly announced last week that it will release an untitled DC movie on Feb. 14, 2020.
Warner Bros. reportedly teased several other future DC projects at San Diego’s Comic-Con last weekend, including “The Batman,” “Batgirl” and “Suicide Squad 2.”
