"Wonder Woman" fans want Warner Bros. to acknowledge that the character is a bisexual in the sequel. They launched a petition to urge the studio to consider their request.

Over 5,305 supporters already signed the petition on Change.Org, as of press time. The petition, led by GLAAD Campus Ambassador Gianna Collier-Pitts, cited that Wonder Woman comic book writer Greg Rucka confirmed Diana Prince's sexuality in "Wonder Woman: Rebirth.”

"Are we saying Diana has been in love and had relationships with other women? The answer is obviously yes," Rucka told Comicosity in a 2016 interview.

Gal Gadot not opposed

Whether the studio listens to the fans’ petition or not is anybody's guess. "Wonder Woman" star Gal Gadot, however, is open to the idea of a bisexual Diana Prince/Wonder Woman but she did say that they have not discussed her character's sexuality while doing the film.

“It never came to the table, but when you talk theoretically about all the women on Themyscira and how many years she was there, then what he said makes sense," Gal Gadot told Variety during the promotion of the first movie. "[But] she can be bisexual,” the actress added.

Follow-up movie in production

Meanwhile, pre-production for the sequel to "Wonder Woman" is taking shape. Gal Gadot is on board to reprise her role, while director Patty Jenkins will helm and write part 2 once again.

Patty Jenkins will also get help from scribes Geoff Johns and David Callaham for the screenplay. Earlier while promoting the first film, the writer and director expressed that the upcoming sequel will likely take place in the '80s during the Cold War.

It’s still not certain if Chris Pine will join the second movie even as fans very much want him in it. His character, Steve Trevor, died in the first film and if his character returns, he will likely be a part of a flashback.

Rumor has it that the next movie won't be in theaters until December 2019 and it will be up against the final "Star Wars" movie. The schedule, however, might change depending on how "Justice League" will do at the box office, after its theater run this December.

Aside from “Wonder Woman 2,” Warner Bros. has a long list of films set in the DC Cinematic Universe (DCEU) including “Aquaman,” “Flashpoint” featuring The Flash (Ezra Miller). The second iteration of “Justice League,” “The Batman” and the sequel to “Man of Steel” featuring Superman (Henry Cavill).
