Wonder Woman soared into theaters earlier this month to wide acclaim, with many fans clamoring for a future installment surrounding the Princess of Themyscira. And now, it appears that the first steps of pre-production for the film are underway - with one of DC Comics' most prominent creators behind it.
Geoff Johns, the company's president and Chief Creative Officer, is reportedly helping craft the first treatment of the Wonder Woman sequel. While speaking in a recent interview with Variety, Johns revealed that he and Patty Jenkins, the first film's director, are developing the film's story right now.
"Patty and I are writing the treatment right now." Johns explained. "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."
Johns, who co-runs the DCEU with Jon Berg, has already had a hand in several of the universe's scripts. He co-wrote the initial screenplay for the standalone Batman film, as well as the stories for Aquaman and Green Lantern Corps.
Fans have already began to speculate what the sequel of Wonder Woman, which could be set over a wide period of time, could involve. Early rumors suggest that villains Cheetah and Circe could appear in the project.
Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, Princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
Wonder Woman is directed by Patty Jenkins and is written by Allan Heinberg, Geoff Johns, and Zack Snyder. The film stars Gal Gadot (Diana Prince/Wonder Woman), Chris Pine (Steve Trevor), Robin Wright (General Antiope), Connie Nielsen (Queen Hippolyta), David Thewlis, Elena Anaya, Lucy Davis (Etta Candy), Danny Huston, Ewen Bremmer, Doutzen Kroes, Samantha Jo (Euboea), Florence Kasumba (Senator Acantha), Said Taghmaoui, Eleanor Matsuura (Epione), Emily Carey (Young Diana), and Lisa Loven Kongsli (Menalippe).
