Our all-time favourite superhero is coming back to screens

Wonder Woman 2 Is Officially Happening
Warner Bros.

Ever since Wonder Woman hit our screens back in May, we've been counting down the days until we were told we'd get a second instalment. And it seems our movie prayers have finally been answered with Warner Bros. announcing that Wonder Woman 2 is officially a-go at this weekend's Comic-Con panel in San Diego. 

As the highest grossing DC Universe film of all time (not to mention all of the box office records it broke), it makes perfect sense to bring Gal Gadot back for another movie. There's no news yet on whether or not Patty Jenkins, the director of the first film who was responsible for its ultra-feminist vibes, will also join production for the second time around but we certainly hope she does. 

The director told Entertainment Weekly just last month that she wants to be involved. "I realised that Wonder Woman 2 is its own great movie. I made Wonder Woman. Now I want to make Wonder Woman 2. It's a beautiful story to tell, an important time to tell it and with people that I love." As for where the next film would be set? "The story will take place in the U.S., which I think is right. She's Wonder Woman. She's got to come to America. It's time." 

If, like us, the good news has got you cheering and wanting to watch the first film all over again (no judgement here), you'll be pleased to know that you won't have to wait long to see Gal reprise her kick-butt role, as she appears in the new Justice League film, alongside Ben Affleck and Jason Momoa, which is due for release in November. The trailer was debuted at Comic-Con and it looks set to be another box office hit. Watch it below.
