Warner Bros. has officially announced that there will be a ‘Wonder Woman 3’! They also confirmed that Gal Gadot will once again return as Diana Prince AKA Wonder Woman.
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.Warner Bros. chief Toby Emmerich said in a statement (via Variety)
Also returning will be Patty Jenkins as writer and director of the 3rd installment.
Even though ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ released in limited theaters (2,100 North American theaters) and on HBO Max at the same time, it still brought in $16.7 million dollars at the box office. That’s actually pretty amazing!
Records have been broken!
It also broke records on HBO Max and completely exceeded expectations!
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, and 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 theater viewing wasn’t an option.Andy Forssell – WarnerMedia Direct-to-Consumer Executive V.P and General Manager
Patty Jenkins told CinemaBlend that Geoff Johns along with herself had already come up with an entire story for the next film.
