Warner Bros. confirmed a sequel to “Wonder Woman” over the weekend at Comic-Con International in California. Gal Gadot, who was present for the announcement, will return as Diana. “Wonder Woman” is the highest-grossing movie this season, raking in over $700 million worldwide since its June 3 debut. The sequel’s story will reportedly take place in the United States, and Patty Jenkins will serve as director.

Gal Gadot will get paid more this time.

A report by Den of Geek revealed that Gal Gadot will be given more money this time. The shockwaves rippled through Twitter when the news broke that Gal received only $290,000 for “Wonder Woman.” With the smashing success of this film, Gadot has proved her worth, and she stands to negotiate for a bigger payday. On June 28, the Daily Mail reported that Gal Gadot was grossly underpaid compared to “Justice League” counterpart Henry Cavill.

There is a tradition of stars who’ve built toward big sequel paydays after they burn through options. That is coming for Gal, whose reps will renegotiate her deal.

Diana Princess in the new film

Now that “Wonder Woman” is both a critical and commercial success, the fans are salivating for details about the sequel.

“Wonder Woman” was a story of Diana who received a photographic plate of herself during World War I, which prompted her to recall her past. She was born and raised on the island of Themyscira, home to the Amazon warriors. Diana is an immortal princess, and Gal Gadot describes her character as “full of strengths and powers.” She is very compassionate and has the heart of a human, but her experiences make her interested in everything around her.

According to Gadot, Diana will fight another group of warriors in “Wonder Woman 2.” Following the events of World War I, Diana will participate in the Cold War and fight against the Soviets.

Who is returning to the sequel?

Both Gal Gadot and Chris Pine are confirmed for “Wonder Woman 2,” but there is no information about whether Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Connie Nielsen, Elena Anaya, Lucy Davis, Saïd Taghmaoui, and Ewen Bremner are returning to the sequel or not.

In March 2006, Warner Bros. and Silver Pictures announced that Joss Whedon would direct and write “Wonder Woman,” but he could not give dates so the studios signed Patty Jenkins. This time, Jenkins has some more exciting plans for the sequel, and we hope that “Wonder Woman 2” may break the records of the original movie. What do you say?
