Warner Bros. highly anticipated film, Wonder Woman 2, will reportedly go on floors soon. Director Patty Jenkins recently teased that the production of the film will begin “shockingly soon”.
When Variety recently caught up with the Wonder Woman director at the Cannes 2018 event, she was asked when the highly anticipated sequel would begin filming. This is what Jenkins had to say.
“There’s nothing I can say — very soon. Shockingly soon,” Jenkins said.
Wonder Woman 2 production is expected to begin either at the end of this month or early next month. Recently, there were reports that claim that the film’s shooting will take place on the Spanish Canary Island of Tenerife, which has ties to the origin story of the film’s villain, Cheetah played by Kristen Wiig. Tenerife is located off the coast of West Africa.
The information regarding when the filming will take place there, or who will be present for these scenes still remains unclear. Cheetah first appeared in the Wonder Woman comics in 1943. The character has appeared in four incarnations over the past 75 years – Priscilla Rich, Deborah Domaine, Barbara Ann Minerva and Sebastian Ballesteros.
Wonder Woman 2 story will be set in the 1980s, with part of the plot involving the Cold War. It’s likely that the bulk of the movie’s plot will focus on Diana and Cheetah. The film will see Gal Gadot reprising the role of Wonder Woman, Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Ewen Bremner as Charle and Said Taghmaoiu as Sameer. Pedro Pascal will also been confirmed to join Wonder Woman 2 cast, though his role is still unknown.
Expectations from Wonder Woman 2 has increased manifolds considering the first film’s massive success at the box office. The 2017 film Wonder Woman, which was made on a budget of $149 million, successfully grossed $822 million worldwide.
Patty Jenkins is directing Wonder Woman 2. She is also co-writing the film’s screenplay alongside Geoff Johns and Dave Callaham.
Wonder Woman 2 will hit theaters on November 1, 2019.
