Wonder Woman 2 is on the way to theaters. In two years. Warner Bros. has circled December 13th, 2019, for the release of the superhero sequel.

The studio officially announced the sequel to this summer's top-grossing film this past weekend at San Diego Comic-Con, surprising exactly no one. DC Films' Geoff Johns also confirmed that he is working on the script for the sequel.

The question they haven't answered yet: Who will be in the director's chair? Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins has expressed an interest in taking on the project -- and Johns said that he and Jenkins were working on the treatment -- but WB and DC have yet to announce whether they've entered into a deal with the director. After the success of the first film, it would be surprising if Jenkins did not sign on.

Jenkins previously said that, if she did get the opportunity to help craft the sequel, she would bring the hero to America. Warner Bros. president Toby Emmerich also stated that, while the sequel will not take place during World War I, it will still likely take place in the past.

When the film is released, it will be the first direct sequel to a DCEU film, rather than an extension of the overall universe.

Warner Bros. has reserved three other dates during 2019 for "Untitled DC Film" and has several planned films still waiting on release dates, including Batgirl, Shazam, Gotham City Sirens, and Green Lantern Corps.
