Surrounded by generally positive reviews and great numbers at the global box office, Wonder Woman has been turning things around for DC, giving the developing DC Extended Universe the traction it needs.
Now, it looks like the female-led movie is starting a revolution. Fans have started asking for more comicbook movies centered on female superheroes and Warner Bros. is more than happy to oblige. The studio had been planning on a Batgirl movie even before the success of Wonder Woman, however now that the film's turned the tide for the DCEU, it looks like Warner Bros. has even more plans for DC superheroines.
Speaking in an interview with Variety, DC Comics President and Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns reveals that the DCEU already has a lot in store for its female characters, taking pride in their influence and popularity.
"We've got a lot of plans for our female characters just because they're great characters. There are many wonderful elements to the DC Universe, and one of them is that we have the best female characters, heroes and villains, in the world. No one is going to beat Wonder Woman and Batgirl and Harley Quinn."
Though Suicide Squad didn't sit so well with fans, Margot Robbie shone as Harley Quinn, and the studio's eager to see the actress get her own standalone movie. Meanwhile, Batman's female protégé is getting her very first feature film from Warner Bros. with the movie being directed by Joss Whedon. Meanwhile, it seems like the studio's starting the gears on a sequel for Wonder Woman. It's definitely a good time to be a DC fan!
Wonder Woman is currently screening in cinemas.
