Wonder Woman 1984: Gal Gadot stars in trailer for DC sequel
Wonder Woman 1984 has only just come out in cinemas around the world. Over the past few weeks the sequel to 2017’s Wonder Woman has been released in select cinemas throughout the UK and Europe, and on streaming service HBO Max across North America where available. The film has been kicking up quite the buzz on Twitter, but comments on a potential Wonder Woman 3 have been scarce – until now.
It was announced over the weekend by Warner Bros. that Wonder Woman 3 is now officially in development.
Even more exciting is the news that Gal Gadot will be returning to reprise her role as the titular character, in what will be yet another blockbuster for the star’s filmography.
What’s more, Gadot will be joined by writer and director of the first two films, Patty Jenkins, for the third time.
However there is some sad news, as Warner Bros. confirmed the long-touted threequel will indeed be the final outing for this version of Diana Prince.

Warner Bros. chief Toby Emmerich commented: “As fans around the world continue to embrace Diana Prince, driving the strong opening weekend performance of Wonder Woman 1984, we are excited to be able to continue her story with our real life Wonder Women – Gal and Patty – who will return to conclude the long-planned theatrical trilogy.”
Of course, no word has yet been given on what exactly is going to take place in Wonder Woman 3, but it will surely tie-up Diana’s final story of the trilogy.
Warner Bros. added that they are aiming for a traditional theatrical release – meaning in cinemas.
No word has been given on whether this ends Gadot’s contract as Wonder Woman, nor if she will be appearing in any upcoming Justice League or crossover films.

Warner Bros. also boasted a strong reception for Wonder Woman 1984 both in cinemas and on HBO Max.
Wonder Woman 1984 apparently collected $16.7 million from just over 2000 North American cinemas.
According to Variety, this is the biggest opening weekend to date throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
The studio added that nearly half of the platform’s subscribers watched the film on Christmas Day. The subscription service has approximately 12.6 million subscribers.

WarnerMedia boss Andy Forssell commented on Wonder Woman 1984’s success, saying: “Wonder Woman 1984 broke records and exceeded our expectations across all of our key viewing and subscriber metrics in its first 24 hours on the service.
“The interest and momentum we’re seeing indicates this will likely continue well beyond the weekend.
“During these very difficult times, it was nice to give families the option of enjoying this uplifting film at home, where theatre viewing wasn’t an option.”
Director Patty Jenkins has been rather tight-lipped on what a second sequel may entail thus far.
Despite this, Jenkins recently went on a spree of answering fan questions on Twitter.
One fan inquired whether brand new villain Cheetah/Barbara Minerva (played by Kristen Wiig) will be making a return in the coming film.
Patty responded: “Thank you for the question! We’ll just have to see…” alongside a collection of winking emojis.
Wonder Woman 1984 is in cinemas now.
