Patty Jenkins Is Not Currently Signed On For Wonder Woman 2








The entire DC Trinity has properly entered the DCEU, and Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman has risen to the top as the franchise's best film yet. Given the amount of fanfare associated with the movie (both critically and commercially), it would make perfect sense for fans to start wondering what Jenkins and Gal Gadot will do next in Wonder Woman 2. However, it has been revealed that Patty Jenkins is not actually confirmed for the Wonder Woman sequel yet -- which may ultimately work to her advantage.


Audiences and DC insiders alike seemingly went into Wonder Woman with tempered expectations. The DCEU was in a tight spot after three divisive films, and rumors associated with the project suggested that it was "a mess" behind the scenes. Beyond that, Patty Jenkins only had one feature film on her resume when she signed on for Diana Prince's solo movie -- leading to Warner Bros. only signing her for one film as a precautionary measure. As a result of this, while Gal Gadot has a long-term deal with Warner Bros. to continue playing Diana Price, Jenkins has not officially signed on for the Wonder Woman sequel yet. Negotiations to bring Jenkins onboard for the sequel will reportedly begin soon, but if she wanted to walk away from Wonder Woman right now, she technically could.


That said, money talks and Wonder Woman's strong opening weekend makes it clear that Patty Jenkins has a hit on her hands. Despite THR's report that Jenkins hasn't signed on for Wonder Woman 2 yet, the possibility of her not joining the sequel seems remote. Jenkins has shown a clear passion for this corner of the DC universe with her work on the first film in this franchise, and she has consistently talked about possibly story avenues that she would like to explore. She hasn't signed on the dotted line yet, but we generally expect her to do so once negotiations properly begin.


To say that Wonder Woman 2 needs Patty Jenkins would be a massive understatement. Wonder Woman is easily the most cohesive entry in the DCEU to date, and Jenkins has shown a deftness with the film's titular character I don't believe has been seen in the silver screen DC world since Christopher Nolan's work on The Dark Knight trilogy. Warner Bros. probably assumed that inking Jenkins for only one movie would be a safe bet in the short term, but the film's unanticipated critical and commercial success has officially granted her unexpected power to negotiate a considerably higher price tag for future films. That just goes to show that it pays to do a job well, no matter the expectations.


Of course, there's also plenty of room for Patty Jenkins in the DCEU beyond the Wonder Woman franchise. Fans have gravitated towards her lighter take on the DC mythos, and some properties could obviously benefit from her special touch. Man of Steel 2 and The Flash (both of which currently need directors) are the first two projects that come to mind, but the possibilities for Jenkins in this cinematic universe now seem endless.


As of right now, Patty Jenkins and Warner Bros. are riding high off of the success of the Monster director's first foray into the DCEU. If (and when) Wonder Woman 2 happens, the studio would be wise to shell out the necessary cash to lock her down. Wonder Woman is currently in theaters, so make sure to check it out!

Patty Jenkins is Co-Writing ‘Wonder Woman 2’ With Geoff Johns




While we still don’t have official confirmation that Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins is coming back to direct Warner Bros.’ Wonder Woman 2, here’s a big step in the right direction: Jenkins is co-writing the sequel’s treatment with DC Films’ co-chairman Geoff Johns. Get the latest Patty Jenkins Wonder Woman 2 details here.


In a profile of Warner Bros. president Toby Emmerich, Variety reports that Emmerich told them Jenkins is already at work on the sequel. The same outlet also sat down with DC Films co-chairmen Geoff Johns and Jon Berg to chat about the success of Wonder Woman, and when asked if Jenkins would be back to direct the sequel, Johns responded:

“Patty and I are writing the treatment right now. The goal is to make another great Wonder Woman film. I had a blast making it with Patty the first time. We’ve got a cool idea for the second one.”
Jenkins may be in the midst of negotiations right now to come back to direct the follow-up film, and because WB only signed her for the first movie, she’ll now be able to leverage the success of the sequel to get a well-deserved higher pay day for Wonder Woman 2.
As for what that “cool idea” for the new movie might be, Jenkins herself commented on that about a month ago, saying she wants to take Diana (Gal Gadot) to America and “bring her a little farther along into the future and have a fun, exciting storyline that is its own thing.” Emmerich seemed to echo the idea of Diana’s character jumping a bit further down the timeline, teasing that the sequel is set “somewhere between 1917 and 2017.” I’d heard rumors that it might be set in modern day, but Emmerich’s comment seems to hint that another period piece could be possible. I’d much rather see another film set years before Batman and Superman were wandering around, one in which Wonder Woman can lead her own story again without getting bogged down with cameos from any of her Justice League comrades.
Elsewhere in the interview, Berg admits that the DCEU’s “early films may have been too dark,” and spoke about the lessons they’ve learned from the critical failure of Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad:
There are lessons from every movie. You would be silly not to analyze how a movie was received — what went right and what went wrong on the making of a movie.

On “Suicide Squad,” the movie did incredibly well commercially. It didn’t work narratively. You had some great casting and some great characterizations, but where the story fell down was on narrative, on plot. We could do better. “Batman v. Superman” was tonally dark. People didn’t respond to that.
Well, they’re certainly saying all the right things. Could Wonder Woman‘s success actually be the turning point we hoped for in the struggling DCEU? I don’t want to get too excited yet because I’ve been burned before, but it sounds like things are definitely moving in the right direction.
Check out the full interview, which also touches on Joss Whedon’s involvement with the DCEU (“he’s a big part already”), how the pair has “a lot of plans” for their female characters moving forward and more.

WONDER WOMAN 2 Rumors Point To A 1980s Setting And The Possible Return Of Chris Pine As Steve Trevor

It was only a matter of time before rumored plot details for Warner Bros.' planned Wonder Woman sequel made their way online, and this first one relates to the film's setting and Steve Trevor's return...





Though Warner Bros. still hasn't made Wonder Woman 2 official, the massive success of Patty Jenkins' first movie means an eventual announcement is all-but guaranteed. While we wait for that, however, there's going to be the usual internet rumors springing up.

According to Screen Rant, the sequel's story will once again unfold in the past, as Diana does battle against Soviet forces in a Cold War setting. Apparently, the original production team will remain on board, with supposed confirmation that Geoff Johns is developing the script with Jenkins.

This part is easy enough to buy, but they also report that Chris Pine's Steve Trevor is set to return, which obviously doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

While the source is far from reputable (they still report on that nonsense from Reddit and 4Chan, for one), these details have been backed up by several other sites, so there might just be some truth to 'em.

Pinch of salt for the time being, and we'll be sure to update you guys if anything else comes to light.

WONDER WOMAN 2: Could This Be The Logo For The Upcoming Sequel?

Warner Bros. recently set a release date for the Wonder Woman sequel and it now appears as if an early logo design for the highly anticipated follow-up has been revealed. You can check it out here!



Bleeding Cool has spotted a new Wonder Woman logo in the Diamond Comics Distributors Previews Catalog and while the t-shirt looks like it's probably been made for Justice League, the site notes that it's listed as "Wonder Woman II Movie Symbol." Could it be that the company responsible for making a good chunk of DC Comics merchandise let that cat out of the bag a little earlier than they should have?

It's hard to say, especially as the background looks a lot like the Mother Boxes we've seen from Justice League. Unless the one held by the Amazon comes into play in Wonder Woman 2, chances are there's just been some sort of mix up but remember that Warner Bros. is fast tracking the upcoming sequel.

We'll just have to wait and see but with Wonder Woman 2 still a couple of years away, it might be a tad optimistic to assume this really does belong to that. Rumour has it that the movie is going to jump ahead to World War II or even the present day but time will tell on that front too. Gal Gadot is confirmed as returning and director Patty Jenkins is expected to take the helm of the follow-up.

WONDER WOMAN Director Patty Jenkins Now Said To Be In Final Negotiations To Helm The Sequel

Though we all pretty much figured Patty Jenkins would return to helm Wonder Woman 2 after finding so much success with the first film, we now have confirmation that an "historic" deal is on the table...





Though Warner Bros. announced at SDCC last month that a sequel to their smash-hit Wonder Woman movie was in the works with Gal Gadot back on board as Diana, we didn't get any kind of confirmation that Patty Jenkins would also return to direct.

Well, it looks like we have it now.

Deadline reports that Jenkins is in final negotiations with the studio to helm the planned sequel, and was able to leverage an historic deal that will see her earn "the same as a male director would receive after such a box office coup."

Apparently, this is what Jenkins was holding out for, which is why we didn't get an announcement at Comic-Con.

Did 'Wonder Woman' Tease the Lazarus Pit?




At one point in Patty Jenkins's Wonder Woman, Steve Trevor washes himself in the restorative waters of a Themysciran cave -- but just how restorative were they, and could they be tied to the Lazarus Pits?
It is difficult to know, and likely any connection to the Pits will not be made overt, but it seemed worth at least asking since, despite dozens of fan theories covering a wide variety of ground, we had not see anyone speculating about whether or not the springs at Themyscira could be tied to the Lazarus Pit.
While the pit does not appear to heal Steve Trevor's wounds, it appears to be some kind of mystical water from a glowing source, and Trevor himself is feeling pretty good and giggly when the film joins him in the bath.
Could that have been evidence that the bathing hole was having some kind of physiological or psychological effect on him? Or was he just enjoying moments of peace amid a lengthy and demoralizing war?
And if it was having some kind of impact on him, could that mean something more for the future of DC's movies and the mythology of Ra's al Ghul's Lazarus Pits?


Slide 1/3What is the Lazarus Pit?

In the comics, Lazarus Pits are a naturally-occuring phenomenon in the DC Universe; think of it as a natural spring with restorative powers. Very restorative. They can help cure and heal those at death's door, or keep a healthy person young seemingly indefinitely. For centuries, the pits served the purpose of prolonging the lives of Ra's al Ghul and those closest to him.
While the borderline-supernatural nature of the Pits had kept them largely absent from previously live-action incarnations of Batman and related characters, their increasingly frequent use in live action TV coupled with a DC Extended Universe in which Batman and his rogues coexist with metahumans, aliens, and other extranormal phenomena certainly suggests that using them in the DCEU is not out of the question.
A number of other characters besides Ra's al Ghul have taken a dip in the pits to be healed, including Batman. At one point, Ra's claimed that the pits could even restore those long dead, stealing the bodies of Thomas and Martha Wayne and threatening to bring them back to life. In most cases, the Lazarus Pit has a corrosive influence on the user's mental health, particularly if used over a long period of time.
Lazarus Pits are composed of a unique unknown chemical blend that bubbles up somewhere within the Earth's crust to the surface at key points on Earth, typically at the junction of ley lines. Besides the Pits themselves, there are other ways to tap the "waters" and get their benefits in the comics.
The pit has also made the jump to various other media, including animation (Batman: The Animated Series and Batman Beyond) and video games (Batman: Arkham City). After those successes, it finally made the jump to live action...

(Photo: Rocksteady)
Slide 2/3In the Arrowverse

On Arrow, the pit was teased for a while before it was clearly named -- and once it was, we learned that its effects were finally starting to wear off and that Ra's al Ghul was dying.
This is why he needed an heir, a role for which he chose Oliver Queen. In the comics, he just kinda...wants one...and that "honor" goes typically to Batman.
Anyway, after Ra's there have been a number of people who were healed or revived by the Pit, most notably Thea Queen and Sara Lance. In Sara's case, she had been dead for months and after she came back, her body was essentially feral and disconnected from her soul, which John Constantine had to retrieve.
Furious at its use and despondent that her soulmate had been corrupted by her father (by extension) one last time, Ra's al Ghul's daughter Nyssa Raatko destroyed the Pits -- something that makes a lot more sense when you consider that, like Solomon Grundy, the Lazarus Pits were Batman properties used in Arrow and then returned to Gotham.

(Photo: Warner Bros. TV/The CW)
Slide 3/3Gotham and the movies

At the end of last season, the Lazarus Pit made a brief-but-important appearance on Gotham.
After being brainwashed by Ra's al Ghul, Bruce put a sword through Alfred's chest -- an action so jarring that it lifted the veil around Bruce's mind and restored him to his normal self. Alfred, who had been willing to sacrifice himself because he had faith that the "real" Bruce would eventually resurface, did not die, though: he was revived by the waters of the Pit, which Bruce used to keep him hanging on long enough to get proper medical attention.
The roots of the Pit are not particularly explored in Gotham, but of course astute fans can suss out just what happened and even absent a convoluted mythology, context within the episode tells the audience that there is something "special" or "magical" about the waters.
In addition to the Pits' regenerative uses, their power has also been used as a weapon in the comics . When Ra's al Ghul's daughter Nyssa once confronted the Injustice Society, she claimed to have a staff which channeled the power of the Pits and could therefore destroy both the undead Solomon Grundy and Gentleman Ghost. That is an interesting element to introduce on Gotham, just as Solomon Grundy is coming to the show.
The decision to bring the Lazarus Pit into Batman's story so early -- before he was even Batman -- is an odd, interesting choice, and potentially one that suggests just how significant Ra's and the Pit are considered to be in Batman's mythology.
Does that inherently mean that the Pits will appear in Matt Reeves' The Batman or other, related movies? Not as such, no. Certainly it does not guarantee any ties to the waters spotted in Wonder Woman -- but when it comes to live-action adaptations of shared-universe stories, writers and producers certainly like to give their heroes and villains shared origins.
Think of The CW's The Flash, where it seems each new season introduces an event from which all of the villains flow. Hell, even in the comics, Geoff Johns introduced the various Lantern Corps and then gave them a kind of shared origin/mythology that bound them together and attempted to explain why the rings all functioned differently.

It's Finally Official: Patty Jenkins Will Direct WONDER WOMAN 2

Some good news for the DC Extended Universe today as it's been confirmed that Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins will return to take the helm of the highly anticipated sequel. Hit the jump for details...



It's been revealed today that Patty Jenkins will indeed take the helm of the highly anticipated Wonder Woman sequel which is set to be released on December 13th, 2019. She'll co-write the movie with Geoff Johns and the filmmaker has received a significant pay increase which brings what she'll earn on part with male directors. Jenkins received $1 million for the first instalment but that's all changed.

After all, Wonder Woman has earned over $813 million worldwide and was a critical hit for Warner Bros. at a time when they desperately needed one after Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad.

Now, Jenkins looks set to earn around $9 million, the same amount Zack Snyder made after helming Man of Steel. She'll also get a considerable backend and it's fair to say that's well-deserved given what an incredible job she did with the first instalment. It's obviously still very early days for Wonder Woman 2 but we'll hopefully get some casting news early next year when pre-production kicks off properly.

WONDER WOMAN 2 Enlists THE EXPENDABLES Scribe Dave Callaham To Work On The Sequel's Script

Warner Bros. has reportedly brought in Dave Callaham (The Expendables, 2014's Godzilla) to work on the script for Wonder Woman 2 along with director Patty Jenkins and Geoff Johns. More past the jump...





We recently found out that Patty Jenkins had officially signed on to helm the sequel to her block-busting Wonder Woman movie, and now we have word on the writer Warner Bros. has hired to work with her on the story.

According to THR, The Expendables co-writer Dave Callaham has been brought in to pen the sequel's script with Jenkins and Geoff Johns, who have reportedly been working on a treatment for several months.

Apparently, Jenkins is the one that brought Callaham into the fold as the pair had already been working on an English-language adaptation of Jo Nesbo's Jackpot, which was going to be the director's next project before she committed to bringing us Diana's next big-screen adventure.

The plot of Wonder Woman 2 remains a mystery for now, but Jenkins has previously expressed interest in setting the action in Cold War America. Plus, don't be surprised if we get an invisible jet appearance!

Warner Bros. Responds To Reports That Gal Gadot Won't Return For The WONDER WOMAN Sequel

After speaking out against sexual harassment last month, Gal Gadot has taken it one step further and has reportedly told Warner Bros. that she won't return for Wonder Woman 2 until they drop Brett Ratner.





Gal Gadot made quite the impression on fans worldwide this past summer with her inspiring portrayal of Wonder Woman - a fan-favorite role that she's slated to reprise later this week in Justice League - but, it sounds like there may be trouble in paradise in regards to her future in the role unless Warner Bros. starts to make some serious changes.

According to Page Six, Gadot has essentially issued an ultimatum to Warner Bros. that she will not reprise the role for any future installments in the DC Films franchise, including for a Wonder Woman sequel, Flashpoint, and a Justice League sequel, until the studio breaks all ties with serial sexual harasser Brett Ratner and his production company RatPac-Dune Entertainment, who co-financed the original and will make a massive profit after the film's $821.7 million worldwide collection ($412M domestic, $409M foreign). A WB insider detailed the current situation, "Brett made a lot of money from the success of ‘Wonder Woman,’ thanks to his company having helped finance the first movie. Now Gadot is saying she won’t sign for the sequel unless Warner Bros. buys Brett out [of his financing deal] and gets rid of him.

Gadot's original three-picture deal, which started last year with her brief stint in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, will be fulfilled with the upcoming Justice League, leaving her in quite the power position as the studio attempts to negotiate a new deal, ensuring that she stays on-board for the foreseeable future.

While Warner Bros. denies the new report, claiming they've already broken ties with Ratner, which they reportedly have, he is still very much a part of RatPac-Dune Entertainment and still stands to see a large payday from the $450 million co-financing deal his company struck with Warner Bros. The agreement is slated to expire at the end of next year, but considering that Wonder Woman 2 is expected to go into production long before then, the future does look a bit murky at the moment. The current deal partners the two studios on a slate that includes Justice League, The Disaster Artist, Ready Player One, Flashpoint, Aquaman, The Lego Movie 2, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Shazam!, The Billion Brice Races, Justice League 2, Cyborg, and Green Lantern Corps, amongst others.

Losing Gadot, especially after the year she's had, would likely have catastrophic repurcussions for the studio and their DC Films banner, which is finally on the up-and-up, so this shouldn't really be a hard decision for them to make. Cutting ties with a scumbag like Ratner is a necessary price to pay in the grand scheme of things to keep arguably one of their biggest stars happy. "She’s tough and stands by her principles. She also knows the best way to hit people like Brett Ratner is in the wallet. She also knows that Warner Bros. has to side with her on this issue as it develops. They can’t have a movie rooted in women’s empowerment being part-financed by a man *accused of sexual misconduct against women."

‘Wonder Woman 2’ Will be “Totally Different” Says Patty Jenkins




Wonder Woman was a wonderful surprise for the DCEU: a film that garnered great reviews and cleaned up at the box office. Fans of the film want to know what’s going to happen in Wonder Woman 2, and while director Patty Jenkins isn’t spilling any specific details yet, she did hint that the upcoming sequel would be “totally different” than the first film. Which could mean literally anything, but here we are.

What’s going to happen in Wonder Woman 2? Will Gal Gadot‘s Amazon warrior finally get her invisible jet? Will Chris Pine return as a handsome ghost? Will everyone pretend Justice League never happened at all? We’ll have to wait until 2019 to know the answers to these questions. In the meantime, Wonder Woman and Wonder Woman 2 director Patty Jenkins was nice enough to reveal some vague hints about what to expect.
Speaking with ET at the Palm Springs Film Festival, Jenkins (along with Gadot) talked about the whirlwind success of the film, and when the sequel inevitably came up, the director said:
“We’re actually making a totally different film with a lot of the same, similar like things that we love, but it’s its own movie completely, so it’s not ‘two’ to us. It’s an entirely new adventure together that we couldn’t be luckier [to do].”
This is so maddeningly vague that it could mean literally anything, but I will say it’s nice that Jenkins is approaching the sequel in terms of using familiar elements in a whole new light. More often than not, sequels can turn out to be clones of the original film, and it’s clear that Jenkins has no interest in that. Instead, she wants Wonder Woman 2 to forge new ground. As for what the story will be about, that’s anyone’s guess. There have been rumors that Wonder Woman 2 will be set in the present-day, and there have also been rumors that the film will take place in the 1980s.
During the ET interview, Jenkins was asked if Lynda Carter, who played Wonder Woman on the 1970s Wonder Woman TV show, might have a part in the sequel. Jenkins wouldn’t entirely commit to the idea, but she certainly seems open to it:
“We’ll see…Lynda is one of the dearest people to us, has been a great mentor and dear friend. And we actually desperately tried to get her in the first one and we had the scheduling that couldn’t work, so she’s always been a part of our Wonder Woman family. We won’t say anything yet, but we certainly—there’s no lack of trying.”

WONDER WOMAN 2 Director Patty Jenkins Reveals What She's Hoping To Avoid In The Sequel

Wonder Woman 2 director Patty Jenkins talks here about struggling with the tone of the first movie and what she hopes to avoid as she continues working on the highly anticipated follow-up. Check it out!




Heading into this year's Oscars ceremony, there's a lot of buzz surrounding Wonder Woman and the possibility it could receive a nomination from voters. It's entirely feasible in a year when there really haven't been that many awards worthy movies but director Patty Jenkins isn't thinking about that right now; she's hard at work on developing Wonder Woman 2 ahead of its release next November.

Apparently, her plan is to once again find a mixture of heroism and humour as that played such a big role in helping the first instalment succeed. "I was obsessed with the tone," she explains. "It was the hardest thing. Particularly because the story we were talking about could so easily skew another way with any of the chapters. You start in a fantasy world of women in costume, and then you go to real life, World War I England and then you end up in the supernatural and then you have a love story."

Asked how she dealt with that the first time around and her hopes for the upcoming sequel, Jenkins added: "I brought in all of my [department heads] every week. I would sit and hammer home we have to be so careful that we don’t veer from one movie to another movie, first of all, and, second, that anywhere that she walks out in a Wonder Woman suit, it just doesn’t look ridiculous."

So, it definitely sounds like we shouldn't expect Wonder Woman 2 to veer too far from what's come before but it will be interesting seeing what Jenkins does to ensure it still feels fresh and not a retread of the first movie (which is a very real risk if the filmmaker chooses a WWII or Cold War setting).

The Working Title For WONDER WOMAN 2 May Hint At The Sequel's Villain

The working title for Patty Jenkins' upcoming Wonder Woman sequel has been revealed and it could very well reveal who the Amazon Warrior will be doing battle with in the movie. Hit the jump for details!



Wonder Woman 2 is currently in the very early stages of production and we may already have an idea about the sequel's big bad. You may recall that Circe was rumoured to be the villain of the first movie before Ares and Doctor Poison were chosen and speculation is running rampant that she'll be Diana Prince's main foe in the follow-up (which may or may not end up being set during the Cold War).

The working title is "Magic Hour," and while that could have been chosen for any number of reasons, bear in mind that Circe is a sorceress who has frequently transformed humans into animals.

The character also has a similar set of powers to Wonder Woman and while Cheetah is someone fans would love to see in the sequel, she could easily serve as a secondary villain with an origin story somehow tied into Circe. Nothing is confirmed right now and it's important to note that this is speculation but it would be interesting to see the iconic DC hero do battle with someone like Circe.

WONDER WOMAN Sequel Reportedly Set To Start Shooting As Soon As This May In The UK

While it was previously reported that Warner Bros. was aiming for a summer shoot, it seems they've now settled on an exact date and location to commence production on the upcoming Wonder Woman sequel...


The sequel to the DC Extended Universe's biggest success yet, Wonder Woman, is currently set to hit theatres on November 1st, 2019. We had heard that Warner Bros. was aiming for a summer production schedule now that the story had been settled upon, thanks to confirmation by producer Charles Roven, who said in an interview with Comicbook.com:
We're in what I would call development of the screenplay." Roven said. "We finally, I think, have a good story to tell. Not kind of – we do believe we have a good story to tell. And then we're also just moving out of what normally we would call soft prep into hard prep. We're hoping to start shooting the movie sometime this summer, and hope to have it out by the end of '19.
According to Omega Underground, Warner Bros. has finally decided upon an exact date and location to begin shooting the Wonder Woman sequel. Apparently, they plan on getting the cameras rolling as soon as May 28th, beginning in the United Kingdom. Wonder Woman will be the second of three DC Extended Universe projects to begin shooting this year, with Shazam! already in production and Suicide Squad 2 also set to begin filming later in the year.

It was also recently revealed that Warner Bros. is looking for a big name to fill the role of Cheetah in the film, and at the moment it seems they're in talks with Ghostbusters star Kristen Wiig. Director Patty Jenkins is still on-board to helm the sequel, and it appears it's quickly coming together. Hopefully it'll be just as good, if not better than the first which was both a critical and financial success.

Why Kristen Wiig As Cheetah In Wonder Woman 2 Makes Sense








A hero is only as good as his or her villain, and Wonder Woman 2 is shaping up to create an awesome conflict for Gal Gadot's Diana Prince. Many fans had assumed that Cheetah would be the bad guy to follow the appearance of Ares (David Thewlis) in the first Wonder Woman movie, but many were surprised by the announcement of Bridesmaids star Kristen Wiig as the beloved baddie. It's definitely an unconventional choice, but casting Wiig as Barbara "Cheetah" Minerva also makes perfect sense because it will help Wonder Woman 2 avoid one of the superhero genre's notable pitfalls: making the villain too similar to the hero.


To get a better understanding of this issue, we need to acknowledge one consistent criticism that we have seen leveled at villains in the comic book movie genre -- on the DC side, as well as the Marvel side. Over the last few years, we have seen a regular fan complaint arguing that many villains are simply mirrored images of the hero. Between the battles of Superman (Henry Cavill) and Zod (Michael Shannon) in Man of Steel, and the showdown between T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) and Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) in this year's Black Panther, it's clear that superhero movies do need to make sure that their heroes and villains have distinct personalities and come from unique points of view.


That's why the casting of someone like Kristen Wiig as Cheetah seems so interesting. The villainess' powers and fighting prowess make her an even match against someone like Diana Prince in a brawl, but from a personality perspective, she offers something entirely different than Gal Gadot. Wonder Woman's star is an Israeli-born model and action movie heroine whose work as the Amazonian hero has been largely defined by her non-verbal physicality in the role. By contrast, Kristen Wiig is an American comedian who has made a name for herself by portraying fast-talking, goofy characters in movies like Ghostbusters and Sausage Party, in addition to numerous dramatic turns in smaller indies like The Skeleton Twins or Friends with Kids.


When looking at their resumes side-by-side, the distinction between Gal Gadot and Kristen Wiig (and what they bring to the table) couldn't be more apparent. With Gadot's Diana Prince, audiences get a strong, quiet and regal heroine with an exotic sense of nobility. Wiig brings a sense of comedic timing and an everywoman sensibility that helps hammer home the idea that Barbara Minerva was tragically transformed into the Cheetah. It's not that she's naturally built to be a badass villainess in the way that actresses like The Mummy's Sofia Boutella or Mad Max: Fury Road's Charlize Theron are. She's not what many people expect when they think of a supervillain, which underscores the tragic nature of her eventual transformation into one.


Also, looking ahead at the rest of the DCEU films that are in development, a Kristen Wiig Cheetah seems like the right type of fit for the overarching DC universe that's being created. The ending of Justice League implies that idea that Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) is creating a Legion of Doom to stand against the superhero team, and Cheetah is a longtime member of that particular evil organization.


If Cheetah proves popular with fans in Wonder Woman 2, then keeping Wiig in the role for a future Justice League movie arguably seems like a no-brainer. Between more straight-laced, male bad guys like Joe Manganiello's Deathstroke, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II's Black Manta (who will debut in this year's Aquaman) and whoever DC ends up casting for Reverse-Flash in Flashpoint, many of these villains play to similar character beats. By injecting someone with the comedic timing and personality to add some depth to the villainous ensemble, Wiig can help create a villain roster that's just as diverse and interesting as the hero lineup.


Only time will tell if Kristen Wiig will turn out to be the right choice to portray Cheetah in Wonder Woman 2, but it's clear that the rationale behind the casting decision seems sound and promising. As for the film itself, make sure to keep an eye out for Wonder Woman 2 when it debuts in theaters next year on November 1, 2019.

'Wonder Woman 2' Reportedly Filming in the US in June


The Wonder Woman sequel will shoot in the U.S. this summer, Omega Underground reports.
Wonder Woman 2, in production as "Magic Hour," will film in June "in and around the area of Northern Virginia/District of Columbia," the site reports.
Returning director Patty Jenkins previously told Entertainment Weekly "it's time" for the super heroine to come to America, saying "the story will take place in the U.S., which I think is right. She's Wonder Woman. She's got to come to America."
Wonder Woman was set in the fictional island of Themyscira before the Amazon warrior traveled outside its borders into a reality ravaged by the First World War, taking Wonder Woman and her allies to Belgium and London.

The demigoddess would set a base in Paris and would visit the United States' Gotham City in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League.
Wonder Woman 2 was previously reported to be aiming for a May 28 start date in the United Kingdom.

Joining Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot in the sequel is Bridesmaids and Ghostbusters star Kristen Wiig, who boards the franchise as famous comic book villain Cheetah.
The sequel will be the first film to adopt PGA policies on sexual harassmentfollowing the ousting of producer Brett Ratner, whose RatPac Entertainment helped produce Wonder Woman.
Last summer brought word Gadot will reprise her role in Flashpoint, the pending Flash movie set to star Ezra Miller, sometime after the release of Wonder Woman 2 on November 1, 2019.

WONDER WOMAN Sequel Adds GAME OF THRONES And NARCOS Actor Pedro Pascal In A Key Lead Role

Though the character he'll be playing is being kept under wraps for now, it's being reported that Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones, Narcos) has been added to the cast of Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman sequel...




Variety reports that Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones, Narcos, Kingsman 2) will join Gal Gadot and Kristen Wiig in Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman 2.

Unfortunately, the character he'll be playing is being kept under wraps, but we do know that it'll be a "pivotal" role and one of the sequel's new leads.

We recently got confirmation that Kristen Wiig had signed on to play the villainous Cheetah, so the fact that Pascal's part is being kept from the press may suggest that the reveal would give away too much about the plot, the specific details of which Warner Bros. is said to be determined to keep hidden for as long as possible.

Funnily enough, Pascal appeared in NBC’s defunct 2011 Wonder Woman pilot which starred Adrianne Palicki.

Who do you guys think he'll be playing in Wonder Woman 2? Drop us a comment in the usual place.

Possible Details On Who Pedro Pascal Will Play In WONDER WOMAN 2; Will Chris Pine Return As Steve Trevor?







Last night, we learned that Game of Thrones alum Pedro Pascal has joined the cast of Wonder Woman 2 but who could he be playing? Oh, and will Chris Pine's Steve Trevor be making a return of some sort?


It's thought that Wonder Woman 2 will take place during the Cold War, an interesting setting but not one fans hoping to see Diana Prince's present-day adventures are massively psyched about. Regardless, the cast is slowly starting to come together with Kristen Wiig set to play Cheetah and Pedro Pascal cast as...well, we don't know! However, The Tracking Board may have already shed some light on that.

Apparently, Pascal is quite likely playing "a slippery conman known in the script as Rex." He's the only character in there who could be described as a lead and Warner Bros. was apparently keen on making a diverse hire for the role. The sequel is also going to feature "an intimidating American businessman" but the site points out that it's unlikely the actor would be given such a minor part to play in the movie.

So, who is Rex? Looking at the comic books, it could be Rex Mason (who later becomes Metamorpho) or Rex Tyler (better known as Hourman). There are quite a few characters named Rex in the DC Universe, though, so we'll have to wait and see. As for Chris Pine's Steve Trevor, it's mentioned that the actor has a sequel option and insiders are cagey about what exactly he'll be getting up to this summer.

It's easy to imagine him making a cameo appearance of some sort but time will tell on that front. What do you guys think? As always, be sure to weigh in with your thoughts in the comments section below.

Wonder Woman 2 Theory: Is Pedro Pascal The Male Cheetah?

Could Pedro Pascal be playing the male Cheetah in Wonder Woman 2? The Narcos actor is the DCEU sequel’s newest cast member, joining the returning Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Kristen Wiig, who will be portraying Dr. Barbara Minerva aka the Cheetah. This will be his second time working with director Patty Jenkins, with the pair having previously collaborated on the TV movie Exposed.


It’s exciting news, but the real question is the identity of the role Pascal will be playing. This is, naturally, being kept under wraps, and with the question of whether Chris Pine will return up in the air, it’s definitely possible he could be playing a new love interest for Diana Prince. However, given rumors Steve Trevor will factor in, he may be something more villainous.

Wonder Woman doesn’t have quite the extensive rogue’s gallery as the likes of fellow Justice League member Batman, but there’s still a lot of prospective foes to stand alongside Cheetah in Wonder Woman 2. Pascal certainly has the acting chops to portray one of Diana’s biggest male adversaries, Doctor Psycho, while many fans have cited Randal Savage as a perfect fit. However, given the already placed villain of the film, there’s another potential character: Sebastian Ballesteros, the male Cheetah!

WHO IS SEBASTIAN BALLESTEROS?

DCEU Wonder Woman Wonder Woman 2 Theory: Is Pedro Pascal The Male Cheetah?


Cheetah is a classic Wonder Woman villain, made borderline iconic thanks to her prominence in the old Super Friends cartoon and other DC Animation series. The character in the film portrayed by Kristen Wiig is expected to be Dr. Barbara Ann Minerva, an archaeologist and a friend of Diana Prince transformed into a superpowered feline warrior by an ancient ritual in the legendary lost city of the Urzkartagan tribe. Minerva has been portrayed as both insane and a tragic figure in the comics, but Diana never gives up on helping Barbara despite their battles.


However, there have been others to become the Cheetah in the comics, and one of them is a man named Sebastian Ballesteros. Introduced in 1999, Ballesteros is an Argentine businessman who was an agent of one of Wonder Woman’s other enemies, the sorceress Circe. He coveted the power of the Cheetah, so to usurp the role as the supernatural feline villain convinced Urzkartaga (the plant god who empowered Minerva) that a male Cheetah would be superior because of his female counterpart’s many failures. Urzkartaga agreed, stripped Barbara of her powers, and granted them to Ballesteros. Sebastian became the first man to be called Cheetah but, of course, when he faced Wonder Woman, he met the same failure.

Minerva didn’t take Ballesteros stealing her powers lying down and battled him for the power of the Cheetah. To even the odds, Minerva took a page out of Ballesteros’ book by stealing the powers of one of the Furies from Greek mythology; eventually, Barbara killed Ballesteros and became the Cheetah once more. The character hasn’t appeared in print since, with only a fan-winking reference in the New 52 era, but could the arc be pulled on for Wonder Woman 2?

'Wonder Woman 2' Rumored to Cast 'Venom' Star Riz Ahmed


With production set to begin later this summer, director Patty Jenkins is hard at work filling out the cast for Wonder Woman II.
Actors Kristen Wiig and Pedro Pascal were recently announced to be joining Gal Gadot for the highly anticipated sequel, but a new rumor suggests there's one popular actor being eyed for a key role. On the latest episode of Meet the Movie Press, Jeff Sneider suggested that Riz Ahmed is being considered to be added to the cast.
"I would imagine that Pedro Pascal is playing someone who's maybe a villain of some kind… I guess you never know," said Sneider. "From what I understood, there were two decently sized male roles for Wonder Woman II, and one was a slippery conman type and the other was an opposing business man… I heard they were looking at Riz Ahmed for that role."
Sneider goes on to add that he's not sure how Ahmed would participate in both films as he's also playing a conniving business man in Venom, which is scheduled to premiere in theaters this year.
Ahmed is known for his breakout role in HBO's The Night Of. He also had a key role in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story as the turncoat Imperial pilot Bodhi Rook, and played a major role in the final season of Girls on HBO. He is rumored to be playing Dr. Carlton Drake, the head of the Life Foundation, in Venom, and can be briefly seen in that movie's teaser.
There's no word yet on who these two male characters could be in the Wonder Woman sequel, whether they're new for the film or established in comic book lore. Given the "opposing businessman" descriptor, we could be seeing a big screen version of Maxwell Lord, who became a Wonder Woman villain with their infamous confrontation in Infinite Crisis. But Lord is more of a Justice League villain and/or supporting character.
There are also rumors that Chris Pine could return as Steve Trevor in the film, though it remains to be seen how exactly that would be explained. This would be even more confusing given the film's supposed setting.
The buzz surrounding Wonder Woman II indicates the film will be set during the Cold War and will once again be an international affair, and that it could stretch beyond Europe and to the United States.
0commentsHopefully we'll learn more about the sequel to last summer's blockbuster hit as filming starts to roll.

'Wonder Woman II' Starts Filming "Shockingly Soon" According to Patty Jenkins

After months of casting news and plot rumors, it sounds like the adventures of Diana Prince are about to pick up again.

Director Patty Jenkins appeared at the Women In Motion dinner during Cannes when she was asked by Variety when filming will begin on Wonder Woman II.

"There's nothing I can say," Jenkins began, before saying while walking away, "Very soon. Shockingly soon."

Ever since Wonder Woman dominated the box office last summer, fans have been wondering about the status of the sequel. Warner Bros. and DC Films wasted no time, announcing the movie's 2019 release date and then pushing it up a month. Jenkins is getting a payday to return and direct Gal Gadot in the title role.

After that, plot rumors started cropping up, and now we know the film will be set in the '80s against the backdrop of the Cold War.

"[Wonder Woman is an] optimistic and positive character," Jenkins said during Warner Bros. presentation at CinemaCon last month. "This film set in the '80s, she has to deal with the temptation of our world, and face extraordinary odds."

There have been some major casting announcements in recent weeks, including Narcos and Kingsman: The Golden Circle star Pedro Pascal joining the film. But the biggest news is that SNL alum Kristen Wiig will be playing the film's villain, the classic Wonder Woman foe Cheetah.

"So excited to confirm the most thrilling news," Jenkins wrote on Twitter. "Yes! It’s true! So incredibly lucky to welcome the sensationally talented Kristen Wiig to our Wonder Woman family. Can't wait to finally work with one of my favorites. And SO excited by what we have planned."

There have also been rumors of another major cast addition, as the classic TV series actor Lynda Carter has teased ongoing discussions with Warner Bros. about her role in the film.

"Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins, we're soul sisters," Carter said while appearing on Megan Kelly Today. "That is up to Patty Jenkins. I've been talking to her about it, and she's given me some hints about it. And I guess it's up to Warner Bros. if they want to spend the money."

WONDER WOMAN's Production Designer Will Re-Team With Patty Jenkins On The Highly Anticipated Sequel

One celebrated aspect of 2017's Wonder Woman was its production design and with the filming of its sequel looming, Omega Underground is reporting that the woman responsible, Aline Bonetto, is back...



With the news that Patty Jenkins' follow-up to 2017's smash-hit Wonder Woman will be in front of the cameras "shockingly soon," we're starting to get some more information in regards to the creative team behind the highly anticipated sequel. Omega Underground is reporting that Aline Bonetto, who served as the first films production designer, is again on board for Wonder Woman 2.

Bonetto, who has received two Oscar nominations for production design for Amélie and A Very Long Engagement, was one of the people responsible for transporting audiences from the ancient island of Themyscira to the industrial lung of London and all the war-torn places in-between.

With Bonetto returning for the sequel, one can only hope that the film matches the noted art direction and design of the first - though with Patty Jenkins confirming that Wonder Woman 2 will indeed be set in the 1980's we can probably expect a very different aesthetic and milieu when the film hits theatres on 1st November 2019.

What do you think? Are you happy to see Aline Bonetto return? Where would you like to see Gal Gadot's Diana travel to in the sequel? Leave your thoughts below.

Gal Gadot's Princess Of Themyscira Will Have A New Costume In The Highly Anticipated WONDER WOMAN 2

As is often the case with comic book movie sequels Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman 2 will reportedly outfit Gal Gadot's DC heroine with a brand new costume. Check it out...


Filming is set to start on Wonder Woman 2 shockingly soon according to director Patty Jenkins and we shall soon see Gal Gadot's heroine back in action facing off against her feline nemesis Cheetah (Kristen Wiig) in a new 1980's set adventure. That's not all that's new however as it's been revealed that the spirit of truth will be donning a new costume.

Warner Bros was in attendance at the 2018 Licencing Expo yesterday in Las Vegas where they showed off some brand new concept art for the highly anticipated Wonder Woman 2. Photography is prohibited at these events but Daniel Eliesen was at the expo and provided a description of the work on display.
"Cheetah was literally a tease image based on what they want it to look like. Hard to explain but probably what you think, for WW it’s a battle gear, pretty cool."
Eliesen has since deleted the tweet containing this information. With little to no real plot information, it's unclear how this new battle gear will fit into the context of the film. Maybe it's solely for going up against Cheetah ala Batman's mechanized suit in Batman v Superman or maybe they'll be another God-like antagonist in the films third act.

What's also interesting is that if the armor is of Amazonian design then could we see a return to Themyscira by the daughter of Hippolyta? We'll find out when the film hits theatres on 1st November 2019.

New Website Domains Shed New Light On ‘Wonder Woman 2’








It looks like things are moving behind-the-scenes on Wonder Woman 2. The sequel is one of Warner Bros. Pictures’ most anticipated, and filming is expected to begin on the superhero flick fairly soon. So, it makes sense for the team behind the sequel to find a website for the movie, and fans are ready to examine those domains for all they are worth.
According to a new report by Domain Name Wire, it seems Warner Bros. just registered a handful of domains regarding Wonder Woman. The full list can be found below, and fans will immediately notice a few interesting things about the names:


  • wonderwoman1980.com
    wonderwoman1981.com
    wonderwoman1982.com
    wonderwoman1983.com
    wonderwoman1984.com
    wonderwoman1985.com
    wonderwoman1986.com
    wonderwoman1987.com
    wonderwoman1988.com
    wonderwoman1989.com
    wonderwomanarrives.com
    wonderwomancheetah.com
    wonderwomanlives.com
    wonderwomanminerva.com
    wonderwomanpart2.com
    wonderwomanpartii.com
    wonderwomanreturns.com
    wonderwomanrises.com
Breaking down this list, a few things become apparent:

  • It looks like Wonder Woman 2 is sticking with its 1980s setting. The time period has been connected consistently with the sequel, so fans can expect Diana Prince to get her glam rock on. Well, maybe.
  • Two of these domain names directly reference Cheetah, the sequel’s big villain. The vixen will be brought to life on-screen by Kristen Wiig, and the URLs refer to her by her alias and given first name.
  • The rest of the titles seem to be fairly standard. However, the discussion of Wonder Woman Rises and Wonder Woman Lives has some fans theorizing the worst may happen to Diana in this sequel.

For now, fans can only guess as to what these domains may mean in the long run. Wonder Woman 2 has yet to start filming, but director Patty Jenkins did tell Variety it would start shooting soon.


"There's nothing I can say," Jenkins hedged. "Very soon. Shockingly soon."
Are you ready for a full-on look at the Wonder Woman sequel? Let me know in the comments or hit me up on Twitter @MeganPetersCB to talk all things comics, k-pop, and anime!\

Wonder Woman 2: Chris Pine Reportedly Spotted On Set




Chris Pine may have been seen on the set of Wonder Woman 2. Warner Bros. hasn't had the easiest time getting the unofficially titled DC Extended Universe going, but it is no question that Wonder Woman was the movie everyone needed. Director Patty Jenkins was freed of most continuity by telling the origin of Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman during World War I. That decision gave them the opportunity to introduce several new characters, including Chris Pine as Steve Trevor.
The chemistry between Pine and Gadot was one of Wonder Woman's biggest strengths, which only made his sacrifice at the end that much more impactful. However, as Screen Rant first reported, the sequel was looking for a way to bring Pine back for Wonder Woman 2. It wasn't clear how the sequel could do it, but it appears it is happening.

Byron Del Pozo shared some photos and a video on Instagram that reportedly put Chris Pine on the actual set of Wonder Woman 2. We are only saying reportedly as the photos and video are taken from a distance, so it is difficult to say with certainty that this actually is Pine. However, the audio and the caption say that this is Pine and Pozo says in the comments Gadot was there too. What is clear is that there is a trailer in the Landmark Mall parking lot in Alexandria, Virginia, which Washington Business Journal previously revealed would be a filming location.

Pine's return has yet to be explained, but there have been several theories about how he could return. The biggest hurdle is Wonder Woman 2's 1980s setting, which Screen Rant also first broke. Steve Trevor appeared to have died in the 1940s, so if he miraculously survived somehow, then Pine will be getting the old man treatment. This scenario would be very similar to Hayley Atwell reprising her role as Peggy Carter for Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Or, Pine could return as a descendant of Steve Trevor. He could also return in a simpler form through dreams. It is possible Wonder Woman 2 could resurrect him entirely, but that could wipe away the first film's emotional ending. The one scenario that is likely off the board is flashbacks since Wonder Woman featured Steve and Diana's entire relationship.

While we wait to get more details on Pine's return and the sequel in general, this also means that production is officially underway on Wonder Woman 2. Patty Jenkins previously said that it was going to start filming "shockingly soon" and this would certainly line up with that statement. More set photos and videos may be what fans have to rely on to get more updates on the sequel since it doesn't hit theaters for well over a year. In the meantime, we'll just have to wait and see how they explain Pine's return and how it factors into the story.c
