Sources indicate that the much anticipated sequel to 2017’s smash hit Wonder Woman will shoot in the U.S. this summer.
Wonder Woman 2, currently in production under “Magic Hour” will begin principle photography in June “in and around the area of Northern Virginia/District of Columbia”, according to Omega Underground.
Returning direction Patty Jenkins previously informed Entertainment Weekly “it’s time” for Wonder Woman to come to America, saying “the story will take place in the U.S,, which I think is right. She’s Wonder Woman. She’s go to come to America.”
Wonder Woman’s previous exploits throughout the current stable of DCEU films have seen her homeland on the isle of Themyscira, as well as London, Paris and Belgium. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, as well as Justice League saw her make the occasional jaunt to Gotham and Metropolis but this would mark the Demi-goddess’ first real stent in America as far as big screen storytelling is concerned.
Star Gal Gadot will be joined by Kristen Wiig, whose credits include Bridesmaids and Ghostbusters to name a few. Wiig will play notable Wonder Woman arch-vile, Cheetah.
The sequel will be the first to adopt PGA policies on sexual harassment following the ousting of producer Brett Ratner, whose RatPac Entertainment helped produce Wonder Woman.
Gadot previously confirmed that she will reprise her role in Flaspoint, the upcoming Flash movie set to star Ezra Miller, sometime after the release of Wonder Woman 2 on November 1, 2019.
