Marvel Lady had an eventful 2017. First, moviegoers noticed what Diana of Themyscira’s first time in man’s world was like within the Wonder Woman standalone movie, and 5 months later, we reunited with the current day Diana in Justice League. Whereas each motion pictures have been key to the character’s improvement, the origin story was unquestionably the extra profitable one, as evidenced by its unbelievable important and industrial efficiency. Wonder Woman 2 is already effectively into improvement, however based on Patty Jenkins, fairly than really feel like a direct sequel to the primary Marvel Lady film, this follow-up is being made to face by itself. As Jenkins put it:
We’re truly making a completely totally different movie with a whole lot of the identical, comparable like issues that we love, but it surely’s its personal film utterly, so it isn’t ‘2’ to us. It is a completely new journey collectively that we could not be luckier [to do].
Marvel Lady 2 was formally introduced at San Diego Comedian-Con final summer time, and two months later, Patty Jenkins finalized a deal to not solely reprise her directing duties, but in addition work on the script with Geoff Johns, with David Callaham later becoming a member of the duo. Jenkins and her workforce are nonetheless a methods out from starting principal pictures, however as she indicated above, Marvel Lady 2 will take steps to make sure that it’s going to really feel like a unique theatrical expertise, although it’s going to nonetheless retain components that make it really feel like a correct Marvel Lady film.
It makes me surprise if Marvel Lady 2 is being designed in order that hypothetically, one may test it out with out having seen Marvel Lady (regardless that the primary film is certainly value a number of watches), very like the way it’s attainable to get pleasure from The Darkish Knight with out having seen Batman Begins. Whereas talking to ET on the Palm Springs Movie Pageant, Jenkins and Gal Gadot additionally reiterated their curiosity in together with Lynda Carter, the 1970s TV Marvel Lady, within the sequel, though it’s going to all come down to creating positive that scheduling is not an impediment prefer it was final time.
Formally, DC and Warner Bros are protecting mum on what to anticipate from Marvel Lady 2. Unofficially, it was reported final summer time that the sequel can be one other interval piece, solely as an alternative of happening instantly after World Warfare I, it could soar ahead roughly seven a long time and present Diana battling Soviet Union forces in the final years of the Cold War. That very same report additionally alleged that Chris Pine would reprise Steve Trevor, which might be unusual since Steve sacrificed himself throughout Marvel Lady. It stays to be seen if Marvel Lady 2 will keep up to now or observe up on Diana’s post-Justice League exploits, however given how standard Gal Gadot’s iteration of the character has turn out to be, you’ll be able to wager folks will are available in droves to see her subsequent story no matter setting.
