It's basically a foregone conclusion that Wonder Woman will get a sequel after the smashing success of the original film, starring Israeli Gal Gadot, which is still in theaters.

The popularity of the Wonder Womans, Reys and Deaneryses of the world prove that women want to see themselves as superheroes, jedis and mothers of dragons. As The Verge reports, the Patty Jenkins helmed film became the third highest grossing film made by the studio. It doesn't matter that the film's (highly-talented) director is a woman.

The movie reportedly will be set during the Cold War with the Soviets. Look at this shameful headline from The Independent: "Wonder Woman banned in Tunisia where 70% of the female population suffers from gender-based violence".

Here's some good news for the fans who have been awaiting the announcement of Wonder Woman 2. But before they hit their panel on July 21, Gal Gadot took a sec to whip out her phone and snap a selfie with her partners-in-[fighting]-crime. It's not without flaws, but it presents a coherent, well thought out vision for how Wonder Woman should appear in the DC Extended Universe.

Jenkins has already been teasing her ideas for the sequel. There was a reason I couldn't do it'.

Gadot's appearance at the California comic book convention caused some major uproar, with the Los Angeles Times reporting that the crowd was "losing its mind" at the sight of Wonder Woman herself. Her stand alone movie redeemed her value and now we're going to see a sequel. The movie has earned over $385 million so far.
