The successful DC film ‘Wonder Woman’ has made over $573 million since its release and now it seems the story will continue.
In an interview with Variety, Jon Berg and Geoff Johns, who oversee the DC film universe for Warner Bros., explained why Wonder Woman was such a hit with audiences.
According to Berg, “It’s a fun movie. It’s positive and optimistic. The early films may have been too dark in parts.” Johns continued to say, “[The DC Universe is] known for characters that are inspirational and aspirational.”
Berg and Johns have started making plans for the sequel with Patty Jenkins who directed Wonder Woman.
The two also revealed that a Wonder Woman sequel is already being worked on. “Patty and I are writing the treatment right now,” Johns said. “The goal is to make another great ‘Wonder Woman’ film.”
Toby Emmerich, president and CCO of Warner Bros. Pictures, also spoke to Variety and said that the sequel will still be set in the past.
One of Jenkins’ wishes is for the sequel to have a change of setting. Fans should also expect the story to take place in the United States this time around.
Although a script is in the early stages of development, it has not been confirmed if Jenkins will be again direct the beloved super hero film.
