As part of an extensive interview about the future of the DC film universe, DC film chiefs Jon Berg and Geoff Johns have confirmed to Variety that “Wonder Woman” director Patty Jenkins is already working on a script for the sequel.
Johns tells the trade: “Patty and I are writing the treatment right now. The goal is to make another great ‘Wonder Woman’ film.” He later added they have a “cool idea” for the follow-up.
Separately, Warner Bros. Pictures President and CCO Toby Emmerich tells the trade the next film will take place in the century between the end of WW1 and today, but when exactly isn’t clear yet – just expect another film taking place almost entirely in flashback.
Despite these confirmations of her involvement, Warner Bros. Pictures has yet to announce if Jenkins will direct the next “Wonder Woman” film. The first has earned over $573 million worldwide to date.
The comments come as the internet got aflutter this morning about Gal Gadot’s seeming lack of pay for “Wonder Woman,” only to find she and “Man of Steel” star Henry Cavill had the same starting salary. Earlier this week social media threads about sexist portrayals of women growing out of a review of Joss Whedon’s old script for a “Wonder Woman” film.
