Gal Gadot is Back as Diana Prince in Wonder Woman 2
Gal Gadot is reprising her role as Diana Prince in Wonder Woman 2. It’s her fourth time portraying the iconic Amazon since making her debut as the DC superhero in Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016. She also played Wonder Woman in Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman and Snyder’s Justice League in 2017.
Although rumors suggested Gadot was considering dropping out of the sequel if producer Brett Ratner and his RatPac production company remained on board, she said that those discussions never went that far and that she always intended on returning for the sequel.
Is Chris Pine in Wonder Woman 2?
Unfortunately, Steve Trevor is dead. And he died during WWI. So, it’s unlikely that Chris Pine will be returning for the sequel, but that doesn’t mean there still isn’t a chance for him to make a comeback. A number of possibilities allow for Steve to appear in the sequel, including the fact that audiences don’t actually see him die on-screen. Of course, it’s also possible for a descendant of Steve – one that perhaps looks uncannily like his father or grandfather – to appear the sequel, which could pave the way for Pine to return as well.
Who is Wonder Woman 2’s Villain?
Wonder Woman 2‘s villain will most likely be Cheetah. She’s been one of Diana’s perennial enemies ever since her debut in 1943. And a number of actresses – from Sarah Paulson to Charlize Theron – have expressed interest in playing the villain in the Wonder Woman sequel, but nothing official has happened as of yet. Moreover, Elena Anaya is open to reprising her role as Doctor Poison in the sequel.
Casting hasn’t yet been completed, but Kristin Wiig is said to be in talks to play the classic nemesis.
Wonder Woman 2 is Set During the Cold War
Patty Jenkins previously expressed interest in having Wonder Woman 2 take place in the present day, but Screen Rant exclusively confirmed in summer 2017 that the sequel will take place in the 1980s and see Wonder Woman taking on the Soviet Union during the final days of the Cold War. This will take Diana away from the front lines into the world of espionage. An official synopsis won’t be revealed until at least summer 2018.

There Isn’t a Wonder Woman 2 Trailer Yet
Given that the film is expected to start shooting in summer 2018, and is slated to release in November 2019, a full-length trailer most likely won’t debut until March 2019 at the earliest (coinciding with the release of BvS). It’s possible, though unlikely, that Warner Bros. could screen some footage of Wonder Woman 2 at San Diego Comic-Con 2018, just as they’ve done at past cons for Justice League and Suicide Squad.
There Isn’t a Wonder Woman 2 Poster Yet
Posters for Wonder Woman primarily highlighted the characters’ strengths: Courage, Power, and Wonder. The sequel’s posters should do the same, but not one has released yet. A poster should release around the time the film wraps production and starts marketing.
How Wonder Woman 2 Connects To The DCEU
Wonder Woman 2 will be another standalone adventure with few connections to the overarching DCEU. In September 2017, DC Films co-chief Geoff Johns and DC Entertainment president Diane Nelson revealed that they are no longer interested in forcing DCEU movies to connect to each other anymore. Plus, the movie takes place in the 1980s, and there isn’t a way to connect the story to the rest of the Leaguers since they won’t be around until the present day.
Patty Jenkins is Directing Wonder Woman 2
Patty Jenkins is returning to direct Wonder Woman 2. And thanks to the overwhelming success of the first movie, she’s receiving a huge bump in her salary. Jenkins is now the highest-paid female director in Hollywood. It’s well-earned considering that she helmed the fifth biggest superhero movie of all-time at the domestic box office and paved the way for future female-led superhero films.
Patty Jenkins, Geoff Johns, and David Callaham Are Writing Wonder Woman 2
Before Patty Jenkins officially agreed to direct, she began writing a treatment for the film with DC Films co-chief Geoff Johns, who produced the first movie and had “a cool idea” for the second one. A few days after Jenkins signed on the dotted line and started working on the sequel, Warner Bros. hired Godzilla and The Expendables scribe David Callaham to co-write the script with Johns and Jenkins.

Wonder Woman 2 Will Adopt PGA’s Anti-Sexual Harassment Guidelines
Hollywood was engulfed by a seemingly never-ending stream of sexual assault and harassment claims in 2017, which has shown no signs of slowing down (nor should it, if there are allegations that need to be made). And the industry has responded by instilling new guidelines and rules. The Producers Guild of America (PGA) implemented their own anti-sexual harassment guidelines for its members, and it was revealed at the PGA Awards 2018 that Wonder Woman 2 will become the first movie to adopt the new rules.
Zack Snyder is Still Producing Wonder Woman 2
Zack Snyder not only cast Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman but also directed her in her feature debut as the iconic superhero in Batman V Superman. But his involvement with the character didn’t stop there. He also developed Wonder Woman‘s story along with Patty Jenkins in addition to producing the film, a role which earned him a nomination for Best Picture at the PGA Awards. And despite having stepped away from directing duties, he hasn’t fully exited the DCEU yet. Snyder is still supposed to produce both Aquaman and Wonder Woman 2, although his role is likely “in name only,” due to his past involvement with the character. His creative influence on the DC Films universe moving forward will be minimal.
