Wonder Woman Sequel Becomes More Apparent with Director’s Ideas

Diana's origin story has its own ups and downs, and certainly far from the perfect movie that DCEU needs right now (yes, personal opinion from a DC fan regrets to say that WB is still waiting for a true home-hitter in terms of seamless narrative). However, Wonder Woman certainly made a lot of improvement from previous movies, one that put it way above any other DCEU film in recent memory.

And with its stellar performance at box office, it's a wonder that a sequel hasn't been officially announced yet. Be that as it may, it's also highly possible that the studio is already planning for it--with a subtle hint from The Hollywood Reporter's recent feature about the movie.

According to the report, both Gal Gadot and director Patty Jenkins are under contract for a second film. Perhaps this is why Jenkins has been very keen on exploring ideas for a possible sequel.

In a previous interview with Entertainment Weekly, she gave her thoughts and ideas about a possible sequel--and it looks like a good fit for a follow-up to extend the DCEU for another ensemble movie after Justice League.

"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. It's time."

For Jenkins, a sequel would be a great story to tell, more than just a necessary follow-up. If done right, it could open a new avenue for how DC and WB can extend the movie franchise without sounding forced. If we could make a recommendation, perhaps another woman in the writer or producer pool wouldn't hurt--especially if the goal is to bring about Wonder Woman's heroism (and only hers) at the forefront.

Wonder Woman is showing in all theaters worldwide.
