Hell hath no fury like an Amazon, and there's no greater Amazonian warrior than Diana Prince. Wonder Woman smashed the box office like a wrecking ball in the summer of 2017, and (as so often is the case in Hollywood) that means a sequel is pretty much a guarantee at this point. With that in mind, we have put together a handy guide to everything that you need to know about Diana Prince's next foray into the world of solo movies -- following her last team-up outing in Zack Snyder's Justice League. Check out our guide, and let us know how excited you are for Wonder Woman 2 in the comments below! Now, without further ado, let's kick this off with one of the most pressing questions about Wonder Woman 2: is it even happening?
Although Wonder Woman 2 received an official confirmation from Warner Bros. at the San Diego Comic-Con 2017 panel, the studio did not go so far as to give it a definitive release date at that time. Luckily, though, just a few days after the SDCC panel, Warner Bros. revealed that the film would actually be released on December 13, 2019. However, presumably when faced with the genuine challenge of going up against Star Wars: Episode IX at the box office, Wonder Woman 2's release date was recently moved up to November 1, 2019. This takes it out of Star Wars' path, and pits it against the November 8, 2019 release of Bond 25.
This means that, as of this writing, the wait for Wonder Woman 2 is roughly a year and a half away. And, that wait seems plenty reasonable among the other sequels in the DC Extended Universe. For starters, the franchise is currently standing on solid footing, which means audiences will likely have no trouble waiting eagerly to see another entry in this series. Beyond that, compared to someone like Ben Affleck (or whoever ends up being Batman by then), Gal Gadot is still very young (she was 32 as of Wonder Woman's release), which means she will remain physically able to stay in the role for at least the next few years. Add to that the fact that this gives DC time to solidify the story and get the script right before filming, and November 2019 feels like the perfect time to release Wonder Woman 2.
