'Wonder Woman 3' in the Works With Director Patty Jenkins




 

Diana Prince is officially heading back to the big screen for a third "Wonder Woman" movie. Warner Bros. has fast-tracked development on another installment in the DC Comics franchise, with Gal Gadot returning to star as the title heroine and Patty Jenkins back to write and direct the upcoming entry.

The announcement comes on the heels of the release of "Wonder Woman 1984," the studio's superhero sequel that debuted on the company's streaming service and in select movie theaters on Christmas Day.

"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," said Warner Bros. chief Toby Emmerich.

Though many opted to watch "Wonder Woman 1984" at home, the film still generated surprisingly robust ticket sales - at least for pandemic times. "Wonder Woman 1984" collected $16.7 million from 2,100 North American theaters, the best opening weekend to date in the coronavirus era.

"'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," said Andy Forssell, executive vice president and general manager of WarnerMedia Direct-to-Consumer. "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."

We've been hearing about Space Jam sequel, Space Jam: A New Legacy, since 2014, and it's still tough to believe it's a real movie coming out this year. But the Looney Tunes gang and LeBron James are, indeed, heading to the basketball court on July 16-making our second pandemic summer perhaps a bit more tolerable. James and Warner Bros. have been tight lipped about the movie for years, but today Entertainment Weekly published an interview with the NBA star that revealed plenty of daffy plot details.
