Director Patty Jenkins has said that Wonder Woman 2 will be an entirely new adventure and will not feel like a sequel

Director Patty Jenkins has said that Wonder Woman 2 will be an “entirely new adventure” and will not feel like a sequel. Actor Gal Gadot will be back in the role of Wonder Woman/Diana Prince in DC Extended Universe’s Wonder Woman 2, which will have her face off against the Soviet Union during the 1980s.

“We’re actually making a totally different film with a lot of the same, similar like things that we love, but it’s its own movie completely, so it’s not ‘two’ to us,” Jenkins told Entertainment Tonight. “It’s an entirely new adventure together that we couldn’t be luckier (to do),” she added.

‘Wonder Woman’ has proven to be a critical as well as a financial success and has officially passed ‘Deadpool’ at the domestic box office in the US. The latter, fourth-wall-defiling superhero mercenary, recently took to social media to congratulate Wonder Woman. He posted on Instagram to share the following message from his alter-ego

The Merc May Be Filthier, but Her B.O. is Stronger. Congrats #WonderWoman #BoxOfficeBoss

Patty Jenkins has since responded to Reynolds’ message via Twitter and talked of mutual admiration:

You are the absolute greatest, Ryan Reynolds @VancityReynolds Thank you! We love you and your movie too. ?????? #deadpool #deadpool2 ?????? https://t.co/6Raj3VBEIR

Directed by Patty Jenkins and starring Gal Gadot, ‘Wonder Woman’ has grossed more than $368 million in North America, eclipsing ‘Deadpool‘s’ haul of $363 million. In terms of worldwide box office, ‘Deadpool’ still leads, $783 million to $746 million.

Here is the trailer of ‘Wonder Woman’, just in case you missed it the first time.

In addition to passing ‘Deadpool’, the box office haul also makes ‘Wonder Woman’ the tenth highest-grossing superhero movie in the good old USA. ‘Wonder Woman’ is also likely to surpass ‘Deadpool’ at the global box office before its run ends, as the film has yet to open in Japan and is still performing well both in the States and abroad in spite of fierce competition from ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’.
