While that's exciting AF, there's even better news, it seems the same report might answer another major question we've all had since seeing Wonder Woman: Will Chris Pine return as Steve Trevor for a sequel? According to Screen Rant and TheWrap, the DC superhero sequel will take place in the midst of the Cold War, with Diana battling the Soviet Union.
Reportedly, Chris Pine has signed on for the franchise's next installment as Steve Trevor.
Deadpool grossed $363 million domestically, while Wonder Woman has grossed $368 million domestically so far. For one thing, Gal Gadot is returning, which was a no-brainer. This may be wishful thinking on my part because I loved Pine's performance in Wonder Woman so much, but it would be intriguing to see Wonder Woman's sequel shirk the period piece settings it's attached to, and go full mythological.
Wonder Woman is absolutely dominating the box office, and not just against her own DC Extended Universe cohorts; Marvel films like Deadpool and Iron Man have already fallen behind the Amazonian warrior in terms of box office sales.
Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. The latest DC Extended Universe installment is now the tenth largest superhero release domestically of all-time, just one of the many titles earned by the film since its release in June. Case in point: he's just dedicated a whole Instagram post to his superhero movie rival Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman is still in theaters right now and is excellent, watch it if you haven't yet. With Wonder Woman's long history, this is a great way to look into the past of the DCEU and keep her adventures separate for the time being. Convinced that she can stop the threat, Diana leaves her home for the first time.
