It's been a little over a year since Wonder Woman graced the big screen, and luckily for fans of the superhero, it doesn't look like they'll have to wait too much longer to see the superhero make her way back into theaters.
As reported by Comicbook.com, it appears that filming for the newest Wonder Woman film is getting close to finding a date. According to an interview with Charles Roven, who has produced all of the DC Extended Universe's films so far, they found that the movie is currently in what Roven likes to call it's developmental stage.
Coming out of the “soft prep” stage, Roven added that they are making strides to actually start filming by saying: “We're hoping to start shooting the movie sometime this summer, and hope to have it out by the end of '19.”
According to Roven, they also have a pretty good story lined up, and while Roven didn't go into further detail about the upcoming sequel, we do know that we definitely wouldn't mind a 2019 release date.
While there's not much more to report on in terms of the upcoming film, there are a few more ideas of what we should expect from the film's projected 2019 release. One of the biggest things that we know is that Patty Jenkins is set to return as director for the sequel. We also know that the script for the sequel is being written by Jenkins, with Geoff Johns (who oversees the DC Universe) and Jon Berg (Warner Bros).
It's also rumored that Wonder Woman will be facing D.C.'s villainess, Cheetah, as reported by The Hashtag Show. While it's not confirmed, the report shows that Warner Bros. is looking for the perfect person to play Cheetah and, according to the site, the studio originally had their eyes on Emma Stone, who ultimately passed on the role.
The first film made a box office weekend debut that saw a whopping $100.5 million in ticket sales—the biggest-ever opening for a female director—and those numbers were just in the United States alone. The grand total of Wonder Woman's global box office sales was an insanse $223 million, so it wouldn't be that far off to hope for a repeat when our favorite female hero comes back onto the screen.
