After smashing box office records this year, Wonder Woman received the loudest cheers among the DC superheroes gathered on Saturday at San Diego's annual Comic-Con to present new footage and trailers for Warner Bros' expanding comic book film franchise. The Patty Jenkins-directed film is also the highest-grossing live action film directed by a female director, according to The Verge.
It's official - Wonder Woman 2 is definitely happening!
It was expected by many, but fans still rejoiced when the "Wonder Woman" sequel was confirmed.
Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Comics announced a sequel to the Gal Gadot-led superhero film during a panel at San Diego Comic-Con. Thankfully they managed to get Wonder Woman right.
Director Patty Jenkins had previously suggested a Wonder Woman sequel was likely, telling Entertainment Weekly: "The story will take place in the USA, which I think is right". Although many gave the movie little or no chance at all, it became Warner Bros most critically successful film. But before they hit their panel on July 21, Gal Gadot took a sec to whip out her phone and snap a selfie with her partners-in-[fighting]-crime. Following the success of the first Wonder Woman movie, it was only a matter of time before the sequel was announced, that's always the case with superhero movies of this sort. I made Wonder Woman. Jenkins regarding the issue said to EW that "I realized that "Wonder Woman 2" is its own great movie".
Gadot entered the Hall arm in arm with her Justice League co-star Ben Affleck, joining cast mates Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, and Ray Fisher onstage to show off a new trailer for the November 17 release.
