The Wonder Woman sequel seems to be moving forward, and it just received a new working title.

Wonder Woman was a hit amongst critics as well as general audiences, bringing in over $412 million domestically over its 23-week run. The film added another $409 million internationally to bring its worldwide total to over $821 million.
