“Wonder Woman” fans can expect a fully formed female superhero for DC’s sequel. With this year’s “Wonder Woman” film mostly serving as an origin story for the character, fans did not really have the opportunity to watch the Amazonian heroine fully formed until right near the end.
Speaking briefly about the upcoming sequel with ET Online, director Patty Jenkins has promised that Gal Gadot’s character will be a ‘full blown’ Wonder Woman in the follow-up, one more akin to the one seen in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and the upcoming “Justice League”.
“The greatest thing about making this [the first Wonder Woman] movie was the fact that you’re really building to the Wonder Woman that we all love, but not until the end of the movie.
The most exciting thing about [the sequel] is literally seeing her loose in the world now, living those classic stories. Here’s Wonder Woman, and what can she do? It should be a totally different movie, but a grand and now full-blown Wonder Woman in the world.”
It is still not clear what period the next “Wonder Woman” movie will take place in, though rumors of a 1980s Cold War setting with Diana taking on the Soviets has been around for a while. Wonder Woman has worldwide box office earnings exceeding $800 million and an impressive 92 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot (The Fast and the Furious films, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), Chris Pine (Star Trek), Robin Wright (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Netflix‘s House of Cards), Danny Huston (Clash of the Titans, X-Men Origins: Wolverine), Ewen Bremner (Exodus: Gods and Kings, Snowpiercer), Saïd Taghmaoui (American Hustle), Elena Anaya (The Skin I Live In), Connie Nielsen (Gladiator, Nymphomaniac: Vol. I) and Lucy Davis (Shaun of the Dead).
