wonder woman 2 love story

Wonder Woman remains the shining beacon upon which Warner Bros. lays the future of the DC Extended Universe, so needless to say, director Patty Jenkins is facing super-sized expectations to replicate the success of the hugely successful female-led superhero movie.

So what was it that made Wonder Woman work so well? Was it the film’s earnest, optimistic approach to Warner Bros.’ dour superhero universe? Was it the flawed and complex female character at its center? The equally complex male lead played by Chris Pine? Or their endearing love story, the echoes of which resound even in Gal Gadot‘s appearance as Diana in this year’s Justice League? It’s natural that Jenkins would revisit all of these elements in Wonder Woman 2, which is planned to be set in the U.S. in the 1980s — except for that part about the love story.

Wonder Woman 2 release date

Wonder Woman was exactly the booster shot the DCEU needed, so it only makes sense that Warner Bros. and DC want to get to Wonder Woman 2 ASAP. After previously committing to a December 2019 release date for the Amazon warrior’s return, Warners has now moved the Wonder Woman 2 release date up to November 2019. And it looks like star Gal Gadot is officially locked-in to return.

Wonder Woman 2

One of the biggest hits of the year is Wonder Woman. The film is currently the second highest grossing movie of 2017, and it raked in $821.7 million worldwide. Not only did it make some serious bank, the critical acclaim for the film was through the roof. That means Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment were happy to greenlight a sequel. But if a new rumor is to be believed, unless the studio does some house-cleaning behind the scenes, the sequel could be a jeopardy.

A new report indicates Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot won’t sign on to reprise her role as Diana of Themyscira in Wonder Woman 2 if Brett Ratner remains on board the franchise as a producer. Ratner was recently accused of sexual harassment by several actresses, including Olivia Munn, Natasha Henstridge and most recently Ellen Page, and it sounds like Gal Gadot won’t stand for having someone like that involved with a franchise that is meant to be empowering to women all around the world.

wonder woman boat scene

One of the many reasons why Wonder Woman worked so well was because it was unafraid to make a joke. Gal Gadot wasn’t just an inspiring superhero, but a surprisingly deft comedian, delivering lines like, “My mother sculpted me from clay and I was brought to life by Zeus” with an admirably straight face.

Given the job of acting off Gadot was Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, whose debonair spy often found himself hilariously fumbling for words around Diana. This meet-cute relationship felt like it was airlifted straight out of a romantic comedy, and in no sequence was it more apparent than the boat scene. One of the comedy highlights of the movie, it featured Steve trying to explain the world of men to a bemused Diana. It’s flirty, thriving, and mostly improvised. Pine’s improvised lines were enough to create an alternate version of the Wonder Woman boat scene, which was recently released online in anticipation of the DC film’s Blu-ray release.

wonder woman bonus scene

If there was anything truly wrong about Wonder Woman, it’s that there wasn’t nearly enough Etta Candy. Lucy Davis‘ scene-stealing performance as the buoyant and bullish secretary was delightful every time she was on screen, and provided much of the levity for the film.

And she’s back in action, this time recruiting Steve Trevor’s band of misfits for a post-war mission in a Wonder Woman bonus scene available exclusively on the superhero movie’s upcoming Blu-ray and DVD release.

On Thursday, director James Cameron — the man behind female icons such as Sarah Connor in the Terminator movies, Ripley in Aliens, and erm, Neytiri in Avatar — struck an illogical blow against the female-led movie of the summer: Wonder Woman.

Instead of being a watershed moment in Hollywood, Cameron accused Wonder Woman of being a “step backwards” for women compared to his beloved Ripley. It was an incredibly reductive way of viewing Wonder Woman and its cultural impact — and his comments naturally caused such an uproar that Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins stepped in to tell him exactly how he was wrong.

Not that Jenkins needs any help, but I’m also here to break down exactly why it’s not Wonder Woman that is woefully “backwards” in its views of women, but James Cameron.

Wonder Woman in IMAX

Wonder Woman has been basking in the seemingly endless success of being Warner Bros.’ new golden child, and now it has one more exciting development before it arrives on home video: a return to IMAX theaters for a limited run.

The DC Extended Universe film is still going strong in theaters nearly three months after its release, but is no longer showing in most IMAX theaters, which features films for only two to three weeks after their release. But on the cusp of Wonder Woman‘s Blu-ray release, IMAX will bring back the female-led superhero hit.
