Wonder Woman 2 will be hitting cinemas in the US and UK even sooner than originally planned.
The follow-up to the highest-grossing superhero origin story in US history will reunite its star Gal Gadot and director Patty Jenkins for another exciting adventure set in the DC Extended Universe.
Warner Bros had originally slotted Wonder Woman 2 to arrive on December 13, 2019, but the studio is so confident in the project that it’s being bumped up by more than a full month to November 1, 2019.
That means we are now less than two years away from seeing Gal Gadot continuing the saga of Diana and the Amazons on the big screen.
Wonder Woman 2 has been tipped to move the story ahead decades by jumping from World War I to the heart of the Cold War in the 1980s, and potentially bringing back Chris Pine as Steve Trevor (somehow).
Earlier this month, Gal Gadot was asked about what she thought Wonder Woman had been up to in the 100 years between her solo movie and reappearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
“What is clear is that whether or not Wonder Woman was out there or incognito, she was always very involved, and she was always very active in man’s world,” Gal explained.
“And she was always acting to save and to help and to better the world. That’s all I can tell you.”
Director Patty Jenkins famously held off on signing with Warner Bros to make the sequel for months, allowing her to ultimately reach a deal worth between $7 and $9 million to co-write, produce and direct Wonder Woman 2.
This agreement with WB will make Jenkins the highest-paid female director of all time. Before we get to Wonder Woman 2, Gal Gadot will be kicking ass again in the Justice League movie.
Justice League is released in cinemas on Friday (November 17). Watch a trailer below:
