Gal Gadot has been confirmed to reprise her superhero role in "Wonder Woman 2" which is expected to hit the theaters on December 13, 2019. The premiere date was announced by Warner Bros. a few days after an untitled DC film was scheduled for a February 14, 2020, release date.

'Wonder Woman 2' secures 2019 release date

According to a Hollywood Reporter story, the follow-up film is the only movie set for the said date for now. Warner Bros. formally announced that a sequel is happening during the recent Comic-Con 2017 in San Diego. The company also confirmed that Gal Gadot will return as Diana Prince.

Aside from the Israeli actress and model, Patty Jenkins will also return to take the helm for the "Wonder Woman" sequel. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the director provided a few details of what to expect from the upcoming DC movie. “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," she hinted.

Jenkins did not provide further details about the film. Similarly, Warner Bros. refused to comment on matters regarding "Wonder Woman 2" until they revealed the release date of the superhero movie.

The Israeli beauty was also present at the Comic-Con 2017 when the entertainment company confirmed the release date of the upcoming sequel.

Gal Gadot was then promoting "Justice League" with co-actors Ben Affleck, Ray Fisher, Jason Momoa, and Ezra Miller. The Zack Snyder creation is slated to hit the cinemas this November 17.

'Wonder Woman's' record-breaking performance

Meanwhile, Gal Gadot's "Wonder Woman" is expected to climb up to the 11th spot on the list of highest-grossing superhero film of all time.

The DC movie also became the highest-grossing live-action motion picture ever made by a female director.

Patty Jenkins snatched the record from Phyllida Lloyd's "Mamma Mia" which earned over 600 million dollars from its international screening in 2008. The "Wonder Woman" director, after seeing the box office performance of her creation, thought that the DC movie deserved a sequel to tell more of the female superhero.

"It’s a beautiful story to tell, an important time to tell it and with people that I love," she told EW.

Gal Gadot, on the other hand, believed that her superhero character is a representation of justice, peace, wisdom, love, acceptance, and compassion. "And all of these things are rare, they’re becoming rare in our world," she explained as cited by ComicBook.

Before her DC character earned its stand-alone movie, the female superhero has remained in the back seat for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" where she played a supporting role.
