Wonder Woman 3 with Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins gets official greenlight at Warner Bros

December 27th, 2020 by Marc Comments

Well, Wonder Woman 1984 is only out a few days and it was sent right to streaming as well as theatrical release and it’s already been given a third chapter.

Warner Brothers has officially given Wonder Woman 3 the green light with Gal Gadot returning to star and Patty Jenkins set to write and direct as she did with Wonder Woman 1984.

Warner Bros. chief Toby Emmerich said: “As fans around the world continue to embrace Diana Prince, driving the strong opening weekend performance of Wonder Woman 1984, we are excited to be able to continue her story with our real life Wonder Women — Gal and Patty — who will return to conclude the long-planned theatrical trilogy.”

Glad to hear the word ‘theatrical’ in there, truth be told.

While the movie opened to the biggest audience on HBO Max, it also pulled in almost $17m on 2,100 North American cinemas, so that in itself is impressive, given the current global situation.

Andy Forssell, executive vice president and general manager of WarnerMedia Direct-to-Consumer said: “Wonder Woman 1984 broke records and exceeded our expectations across all of our key viewing and subscriber metrics in its first 24 hours on the service, and the interest and momentum we’re seeing indicates this will likely continue well beyond the weekend.

“During these very difficult times, it was nice to give families the option of enjoying this uplifting film at home, where theater viewing wasn’t an option.”

Looks like, despite a lot of negative reviews, Wonder Woman still has legs in the world of cinemas… and streaming.

Have you seen Wonder Woman1984? What did you think? I want to hear all your thoughts, guys…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
