With this year’s “Wonder Woman” film mostly serving as an origin story for the character, we didn’t really get to see the Amazonian heroine fully formed until right near the end.
Speaking briefly about the upcoming sequel with ET Online, director Patty Jenkins has promised that Gal Gadot’s character will be a ‘full blown’ Wonder Woman in the follow-up, one more akin to the one seen in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and the upcoming “Justice League”.
“The greatest thing about making this [the first Wonder Woman] movie was the fact that you’re really building to the Wonder Woman that we all love, but not until the end of the movie.
The most exciting thing about [the sequel] is literally seeing her loose in the world now, living those classic stories. Here’s Wonder Woman, and what can she do? It should be a totally different movie, but a grand and now full-blown Wonder Woman in the world.”
It’s still not clear what period the next “Wonder Woman” movie will take place in, though rumors of a 1980s Cold War setting with Diana taking on the Soviets has been around for a while.
