“Wonder Woman” is finally here, and with its official launch, the movie managed to surpass the $100 million mark at the American box office during its first weekend. With that being the case, it’s time for us to talk about the future of the character when it comes down to a sequel.

It’s pretty much a given that “Wonder Woman” will have a sequel in the years to come. What we don’t know is whether or not the director, Patty Jenkins, will return for another shot at creating an intense superhero movie. The Dc Extended Universe needs quality directors, and no doubt, she’s one of them.

Location of 'Wonder Woman 2'

At the moment, we have no idea when “Wonder Woman 2” will go into production. However, it would appear as if Warner Bros. is already throwing around ideas for the sequel and where our hero will make her presence felt. In a recent interview, Patty Jenkins made it clear that the next film will take place in America, a move that is not surprising at all.

“The story will take place in the U.S., which I think is right. She’s Wonder Woman. She’s got to come to America. It’s time.”

This is great news, but we can only hope the story doesn’t take place in the future for the sake of being different from the other movies in the DC Extended Universe. The first film is probably the best movie in the universe so far, and hopefully, things continue down this path when “Justice League” comes around.

Will Patty Jenkins return for a sequel?

It’s not yet clear if the director will come back for the sequel, but from what she has to say, there’s some form of interest there. We’d love for her to return as we have no idea of who could replace her. However, one should bear in mind that directors don’t always return for sequels, but Patty Jenkins have many reasons to come back for more.

She did make it clear she wants to return, but with these type of things, it all boils down to whether or not Warner Bros. wants to give her the money she’ll demand for a second outing.

What’ next for the DC Extended Universe

After the success of “Wonder Woman,” Warner Bros. will turn its eyes to the “Justice League” movie. The film is facing issues right now due to the director, Zack Snyder, stepping off the project.

The reason for this move is all about his daughter who committed suicide earlier in 2017. We understand director of the first two “Avengers” movies, Joss Whedon, has taken up the baton.

After that, Warner Bros. aims to release the Aquaman movie to the masses.
