Wonder Woman fans, rejoice — the princess of Themyscira (Gal Gadot) will be back on the big screen in 2019!

On Tuesday, the “Wonder Woman 2” premiere date was officially confirmed by Warner Bros. The sequel to the hit DC Extended Universe film will hit theaters worldwide on Dec. 13, 2019, Entertainment Weekly reported. This comes after the studio confirmed that a sequel is in the works during the 2017 San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend. The studio apparently set the date for an undisclosed “WB event film.”

The announcement of a sequel for “Wonder Woman” so soon after the first movie premiered does not come as a surprise. The first movie, which hit theaters June 2 and starred Gadot and Chris Pine, earned over $389 million in the domestic box office. This number makes “Wonder Woman” the highest-grossing movie of the summer and the highest-grossing live-action film directed by a woman of all time.

Ahead of the official announcement of “Wonder Woman 2,” director Patty Jenkins had already teased some of her ideas for the sequel. She revealed that she would like the setting to be the United States this time, instead of Europe where most of the first movie was 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,” she told EW.

“I realized 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,” she added.

Geoff Johns, co-head of DC films, also previously teased the sequel during an interview with Variety, where he said that he and Jenkins are working on the script. “Patty and I are writing the treatment right now. The goal is to make another great Wonder Woman film. I had a blast making it with Patty the first time. We’ve got a cool idea for the second one,” he shared.

In addition to the “Wonder Woman” sequel, Warner Bros. also has scheduled DC films for Feb. 14, 2020 and June 5, 2020. The studio has yet to reveal what these films are, but they could be the “Suicide Squad” sequel and “Batman” standalone movie.

Warner Bros. has already teased their plans to release a “Suicide Squad” sequel, “The Batman,” “Justice League Dark,” “Green Lantern Corps” and “The Flash: Flashpoint.” The studio will also be collaborating with “Avengers” director Joss Whedon for “Batgirl.”

Gadot will next reprise her role as Wonder Woman in the upcoming “Justice League,” which also stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Jason Momoa as Aquaman and Ray Fisher as Cyborg.
