DC’s lasso-wielding warrior superhero is back! With the success of the Wonder Woman film (earning a gross box office of 821.8 million USD worldwide), DC Extended Universe has decided to push through with the film’s sequel, “Wonder Woman 1984“.
The filming of the said sequel is already underway. Returning to their original roles include Gal Gadot as Diana Prince (aka Wonder Woman) and Chris Pine as Steve Trevor. Other members of the cast include Robin Wright, David Thewlis, and Connie Nielsen. Patty Jenkins will be returning to the director’s chair to helm the completion of the film’s production.
As Jenkins revealed, the upcoming film will be set in the US during the 1980s, as you’ve probably already guessed with the film’s title. The film will become the eighth installment in the DCU franchise. It is also the fourth movie in which Gal Gadot will be playing the role of Wonder Woman.
New faces will join the cast, including Kristen Wiig and Pedro Pascal. Wiig is cast as the villainous Cheetah. Pascal’s role, on the other hand, has yet to be revealed. This film is scheduled to hit the theaters on November 1, 2019.
