After registering several domain names for the sequel of Wonder Woman, it would seem that Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment may have revealed the final title: Wonder Woman ’84 – which is an interesting choice to say the least. Geoff Johns revealed the above image on his Twitter, this morning. It’s been confirmed that the sequel will take place during the Cold War, so the title could elude to that. Keep in mind this title is not confirmed, and could be viral marketing.
The sequel is set to introduce Barbara Minerva, aka Cheetah (Kristen Wiig) and Narcos star Pedro Pascal, who has also landed a lead mystery role. The screenplay was penned by director Patty Jenkins, Geoff Johns, and Dave Callaham.
As strange as it may sound, you read that correctly. Saturday Night Live alum, and rising star actor, Kristen Wiig is apparently the personal choice from director Patty Jenkins to play the role of Barbara Ann Minerva, aka Cheetah, according to Deadline. After Emma Stone reportedly passed on the role, it was left to Jenkins to choose, and Wiig was hand-picked afterwards. The same report also confirms the 80’s Cold War setting for the film, leaving still plenty more questions unanswered.
What do you think of the wildly unconventional choice for the iconic villain. Header art by @BossLogic.
That Hashtag Show is reporting on an exclusive that the Patty Jenkins helmed Wonder Woman 2 has decided on Cheetah for its villain, and that the studio is looking for an A-Lister to fill the role opposite Gal Gadot. The report states that Warner Bros. offered the role to Emma Stone already, however the actor has passed on the role, leaving it still open.
If this rumor is to be believed, who do you think would make a great choice for the tortured character? Cheetah is believed to be the Barbara Ann Minerva version of the character, making her once a friend of Diana Prince’s, and ensuring a good amount of drama in the film.
Warner Bros. has shared the day we’ll finally receive the last Justice League trailer before the film’s release in November. The official Justice League Twitter shared the image above, which you can see in full after the jump, confirming the trailer’s Sunday release date.
On top of that, we even know the time, as the trailer will drop at 9am EST/6am PST. Justice League hits theaters November 17th.
Warner Bros. has confirmed that director Patty Jenkins will return to the chair for Wonder Woman 2 which is set to be released on December 13th, 2019. She’s co-writing the film with Geoff Johns and is set to also receive a hefty increase in pay. After receiving $1 million for directing the first film, she is set to receive around $9 million, the same amount Zack Snyder received for Man of Steel.
This is fantastic news for Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment. Wonder Woman has earned over $813 million worldwide, and was a critical hit for Warner Bros. at a time when they desperately needed one after Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad were so critically panned.
Warner Bros. has released the first details of Wonder Woman’s upcoming DVD, Blu-Ray, and 4K Ultra HD release, alongside a new announcement trailer that Gal Gadot posted this morning. Wonder Woman will be released on home video August 29 digitally and September 19 in physical media.

Warner Bros. is reportedly in the process of beginning a massive Oscar-campaign for the critically and commercially successful Wonder Woman. The film has now passed $781 million at the global box office to become the highest-grossing movie directed by a woman. Could that be enough to get it a nod for Best Director, Best Picture? The studio is hoping so.
According to Variety, Warner Bros. is planning on spending big money to launch a “groundbreaking” campaign for the film to secure those two nods. However, the film has its work cut out for it, as the Academy is notoriously anti-comic book movies. Do you think it deserves the nod?
Best Buy has let slip the first look at the new absolutely gorgeous Wonder Woman 4K Ultra HD steelbook release. The steelbook features yet another incredible looking piece of art featuring Gal Gadot’s Diana Prince, as well as Hippolyta (Connie Nielsen), Antiope (Robin Wright) and Menalippe (Lisa Loven Kongsli).
There’s no release date for the Wonder Woman home video release as of yet, but we should be hearing news soon given the standard release time these days.
Warner Bros. has announced that Wonder Woman 2 has been set for a December 13th, 2019 release date, setting the film as a fabled holiday release. Wonder Woman has become the summer’s highest domestic earner, and a runaway success, so it’s only natural that the film be fast-tracked.
Geoff Johns and director, Patty Jenkins, have already revealed that they’re working on the script, which is rumored to once again be set in the past, this time during the Cold War, which could give us answers as to why Wonder Woman had already turned her back on being a hero during Batman v. Superman. Stay tuned as we learn more.
It’s been a roller coaster of rousing success for Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman, as the film has far exceeded expectations (at least for some), and now stands at $368.5 million at the domestic box office, surpassing Deadpool in the #10 spot for domestic comic book film gross. Never one to shy away from anything, the Deadpool twitter posted the above image, congratulation the Amazon Princess.

Wonder Woman just had the biggest female-directed opening weekend of all time, with a whopping $100.5 million domestic, and $223 million global take. It’s been given rave reviews, sitting comfortably at 93% on Rotten Tomatoes, with fans and critics alike in love with the incredible film. You can read my review here.
It comes as no surprise then, that we already have a few details on Wonder Woman 2. Patty Jenkins is contracted through a second film, so she will most certainly helm the sequel. She’s also stated that her plan is to bring Diana Prince to America, in contemporary times. Most certainly taking place after Justice League, and her reveal to the world.
To say that Wonder Woman is one of the most anticipated movies of the summer is, put simply, an understatement. This film is easily one of the most anticipated films of all time, with an unimagineable amount of pressure on the shoulders of director Patty Jenkins, and star, Gal Gadot. With the future of the DC Entertainment Universe, and female-led films all laid at their feet, it would be enough to sink anyone else.
However, these aren’t normal filmmakers. Nor are they normal stars. The crew behind Wonder Woman is clearly one of the most passionate to ever be put behind, or on camera, and it’s evident based on the powerfully near-flawless movie they’ve created. Hit the jump for my long-awaited thoughts on Wonder Woman.
