Gal Gadot's standalone film as "Wonder Woman" just premiered over the weekend, but DC Comics fanatics are now looking forward to the next one which is happening soon. Just recently, Patty Jenkins' "Wonder Woman" has become the highest-grossing female-directed movie for its opening weekend, bringing in over $100 million in North America. It has dethroned Sam Taylor-Johnson's "Fifty Shades of Grey" which previously held the record for earning more than $80 million for its premiere.

Who's in? Who's out?

It's official! A "Wonder Woman 2" is happening to pick up where the first run left off. In fact, the Israeli actress and model has reportedly signed on for the sequel.

It was also revealed that the team behind the superhero film has already held a casting call for the follow-up movie.

When asked if they will bring Lynda Carter on board for "Wonder Woman 2," Jenkins admitted they have tried and will continue reaching out to the veteran actress who used to play the superhero role in a 1970s TV series. Aside from giving us the assurance that Gadot is up for the sequel, the brilliant minds behind the DC Comics film refused to give further details on the casting.

What to expect?

Diana Prince a.k.a Wonder Woman found herself in present-day Paris in the film. But the female director personally confirmed she is planning to move the character for the potential sequel. Can you guess where the female superhero is headed? Yes, you got that. Gadot's character will move to the United States for the upcoming "Wonder Woman 2."

"The story will take place in the US, which I think is right," Jenkins revealed.

"She's Wonder Woman. She got to come to America. It's time."

In the midst of the ongoing success of the DC Comics movie, the director has nothing but praises for the "Fast & Furious" actress whom she said was perfect for the role. Jenkins admitted she was inspired to take the film because of Gadot's participation.

Aside from that fact that she has high regards for the Israeli star, the "Wonder Woman" director also revealed that the lead star "blows [her] away" every time she is in character. Jenkins added that the film adaptation would look different if Gadot was not in it.

If "Wonder Woman 2" pushes through (which is likely to happen), loyal DC Comics fans are hopeful that the movie sequel will introduce the characters of Cheetah, Circe, Doctor Psycho, Amanda Waller, Artemis, Zeus, Hera, Hercules, Donna Troy and more.
