Writer/director Patty Jenkins already has a story in mind for Wonder Woman 2 (along with some new characters, and a new love interest), and the script (which she's co-writing) will follow a similar arc to the first film, but with an entirely new, standalone story.
"It’s really going to other values of hers. And a similar formula in so far as making a great, enjoyable, fun movie but that ultimately, in its third act, turns some very big issues and a very big experience that will aim to have slightly more weight and profundity than it has to have," Jenkins explained on Variety's Playback Podcast. "Because that’s a formula that I really like, and I like the idea of taking someone on a really solid, great journey that arrives at a bigger question being answered."
"So it’s like that, but because it is Wonder Woman, and she’s here now, and she’s fully developed, it’s got great fun from the start, and great, big superhero presence from the start," she continued. "And it’s funny, and it’s a great love story again. And a couple new, unbelievable characters who I’m so excited about, who are very different than were in the last movie."
"That’s what it is," Jenkins concluded. "I feel like it’s just the right amount the same world of Wonder Woman as the first movie, while being a completely different movie that tackles something different but very singular, one story."
Wonder Woman 2 has been scheduled for a November 1, 2019 theatrical release.
