Audiences are gearing up for more and more summer blockbuster films coming their way this season – but one of the most hotly anticipated films has to be ‘Wonder Woman.’ Both fans and DC studio executives hope that this will be the film to break the DC Extended Universe out of its feature-film funk. Female fans, in particular, are excited to see Diana Prince hit the big screen, in a superhero film market that has long been dominated by male characters.
On the red carpet for the premiere of ‘Wonder Woman’ in Shanghai, DCEU creative mainstay Zack Snyder, who directed both ‘Man of Steel’ and ‘Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice,’ confirmed that a sequel for the Amazon princess is already in the works and on the schedule for DC – although he did decline to say exactly when it will be making its way to theaters.

The ‘Batgirl‘ solo film, to be directed by Joss Whedon, is expected to be the next DCEU property that focuses on a female main character, followed at some point by ‘Gotham City Sirens.’ As with a ‘Wonder Woman’ sequel, however, DC has so far declined to provide a specific timetable or estimates on anticipated release dates.
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.
From Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment comes the epic action adventure starring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen and Robin Wright, directed by Patty Jenkins.
‘Wonder Woman’ hits theaters in the US on June 2, 2017.
