After officially confirming that they will be making it last weekend at San Diego Comic Con, Warner Brothers has announced a release date for Wonder Woman 2. Audiences can see the next solo adventure of Gal Gadot’s superhero Amazonian princess on December 13, 2019.
While Gadot is of course set to return, Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins is still in talks with the studio over her reprising her job as director.
A Wonder Woman sequel, of course, was inevitable. Although it opened with a debut weekend box office take that was a bit less that some of its DC Comics Extended Universe franchise compatriots, it has shown considerable staying power. In its ninth week of release it has earned over $389 million at the domestic box office, making it the second highest grossing film of the year so far.
The December 13, 2019 date was one of a number of dates that Warners planted flags in for possible release dates last week. That particular date was labeled for a “Warner Brothers Event Film.” The studio also staked out February 14, 2020 and June 5, 2020 as dates for as yet untitled DC Comics Extended Universe films.
Between now and the release of Wonder Woman 2, fans can see the character as part of the superhero lineup in Justice League this November. After Justice League‘s release the only other DCEU film with a firm release date is Aquaman. That film is currently in production with Jason Momoa in the lead and aiming for a December 21, 2018 release. Warners has numerous other films in development for their DCEU comic book adaption franchise but have made no formal announcements as to which will be getting a greenlight.
