    Wonder Woman 1984

    I'll copy this into its own indie thread when the project gets more solid.

    JUNE 07, 2017 5:55am PT by Borys Kit
    'Wonder Woman' Director Patty Jenkins Not Signed for Sequel
    Sources say Warner Bros. will soon begin negotiations with Jenkins, who will have major leverage thanks to the movie's historic opening weekend.

    Sources say Warner Bros. will soon begin negotiations with Jenkins, who will have major leverage thanks to the movie's historic opening weekend.
    A $103.2 million domestic opening usually means a sequel is a no-brainer — but director Patty Jenkins has yet to sign on the dotted line for a Wonder Woman follow-up.

    While star Gal Gadot has an option in place for Wonder Woman 2 as part of her overall deal to appear in several DC movies, Warner Bros. executives enlisted Jenkins for just one film, a decision that could end up costing the studio millions of dollars if Jenkins' reps drive a hard bargain for her to return.

    At the time she was hired, Jenkins had directed just one movie, her 2003 feature debut Monster, and she was taking over the long-gestating project from Michelle MacLaren, who left over creative differences. A one-picture-only deal is said to be standard practice at Warner Bros. for directors taking on a big-budget studio film for the first time.

    Warners execs also may have been a bit unprepared for the level of success and acclaim Wonder Woman has achieved; initial tracking reports predicted Jenkins' $150 million-budgeted film would open to about $65 million domestic, solid but hardly a reason to begin planning a long-range strategy. And the studio had been focusing on putting together Justice League Dark, a supernatural team-up project, and Batgirl, a Joss Whedon-helmed film (among other Bat-offerings), as the likely next movies to go into production in the DC Comics universe.

    Also a factor in not locking in Jenkins is the studio's more filmmaker-centric approach to its DC slate, where installments are not fait accompli; 2013’s Man of Steel, for example, still doesn’t have a direct sequel despite grossing more than $668 million worldwide.

    Some insiders say it was only in recent weeks that Wonder Woman buzz began to grow on the Warners lot in Burbank, so the studio wanted to wait for the opening weekend results before initiating any negotiations. This strategy is a shift from the tactic under previous regimes, which got to work on sequels early. Warners famously greenlighted a sequel to The Hangover two months before the first film was released.

    Sources say the studio intends to begin negotiations with Jenkins shortly (although the exact timing is unclear), and the filmmaker and her reps at CAA, Anonymous Content and Jackoway Tyerman will enjoy enormous leverage. Jenkins could not only return to the director's chair on Wonder Woman 2 but also could ink a more expansive deal that would allow her to work with DC Entertainment president and chief creative officer Geoff Johns on a script treatment for that movie and possibly others as well.

    Here's the split

    Now Wonder Woman 2 has it's own separate thread from the original Wonder Woman thread.

    The 80s were awesome.

    Wonder Woman 2 Set in 1980s, Chris Pine Returning?
    By Andrew Dyce 07.10.2017 112 Comments

    WARNING: This post contains SPOILERS for Wonder Woman



    As Wonder Woman‘s box office success continues to build, it sounds like it may carry her straight into the 1980s for Wonder Woman 2 – with her leading man returning, despite Steve Trevor’s fate. DC Films has been careful not to shift attention away from the DCEU’s runaway success and towards a sequel too soon, with director Patty Jenkins not yet officially returning, even as a a story treatment for the inevitable Wonder Woman 2 begins to take shape. A shape we may now know, at least in terms of setting.

    The current timeline of the DCEU made fans question whether Wonder Woman 2 is tied to Justice League‘s fallout (as is the case with Jason Momoa’s Aquaman solo film), or tell another period story set between Diana’s origin and her Batman V Superman debut. Thanks to some new information, it seems that question can be answered, along with the villains Wonder Woman 2 will introduce decades before Steppenwolf ever challenged the DCEU’s Justice League.

    According to production details Screen Rant has learned, the story of Wonder Woman 2 will be another historical adventure prior to the modern day DCEU. Set during the 1980s, the film will send Diana against the forces of Soviet Union in the closing days of the Cold War. The production team is expected to remain on board for the sequel, with confirmation that Geoff Johns is developing Wonder Woman 2‘s script with Jenkins (who is still in negotiations, with all evidence and word of mouth pointing to her return once the contracts are signed).

    As fans use their imagination to picture the sequel – swapping out the battlefields of World War I for the espionage and maneuverings of Moscow – the last detail may be the biggest relief. The report also confirms that Chris Pine will be returning, once again acting as Diana’s ally Steve Trevor. Exactly how that’s possible given the conclusion of his story in Wonder Woman… may be the real question moving forward.



    From a marketing standpoint, the decisions all make complete sense. Across the critical and commercial acclaim heaped on Jenkins’s film, the chemistry between Gal Gadot and Chris Pine was one of the most praised aspects – tinged with the fact that one glimpse may be all audiences ever get. On one hand, the winning combination of Steve Trevor and Diana makes his sacrifice in the movie’s final act all the more meaningful for Diana’s character in BvS and beyond. On the other… it’s the kind of formula movie studios tend to pursue at all costs, even ones in less critical hot water than DC Films.

    The same line of thinking may be to thank for the decision to tell another story set prior to Diana’s introduction into BvS and the Justice League. The cynics will claim it’s an effort to keep Diana somewhat removed from everything we know about Zack Snyder’s Justice League (despite his role in shaping Wonder Woman with Jenkins), and allow Jenkins and Johns the freedom to tell whatever story she wishes. Taking a step back, though, it seems the smartest move all around. Jenkins has already explained how the Batman V Superman claim that Wonder Woman “walked away from mankind” can mean more than fans inferred, opening doors to any number of compelling stories set in the 20th Century.

    With Justice League telling the next chapter of Diana’s story alongside DC’s younger heroes, why not have the cake and eat it, too – filling in the exciting years when Diana was Earth’s only living superhero? And considering the comparisons to Marvel’s Captain America: The First Avenger the first time around, shifting the next film to World War II would only exacerbate the potential problems. Diana can still comment on the war and its role in shaping the Cold War that followed, after all.

    Fans won’t need to be convinced that seeing Diana during the 1980s would be worth the price of admission alone, but the promise of another pairing with Pine (whether a resurrected version, or a descendant of Steve Trevor) should seal the deal. Since Jenkins has stated her feelings that Wonder Woman 2 should be set in America, the heroes may be forced to swap No Man’s Land for a Cold War spy thriller – and who would complain?

    Let us know what you think of a 1980s setting for Wonder Woman 2, and whether Steve Trevor’s return is the right move – no matter how the filmmakers explain it.

    WONDER how much they'll get?

    Rare 'Wonder Woman' Comics Being Auctioned for Anti-Human Trafficking Charity
    The DC hero's first appearance and two similarly rare comics will be sold by eBay for Charity in August.

    The DC hero's first appearance and two similarly rare comics will be sold by eBay for Charity in August.

    2017 has been a good year for DC Entertainment's Wonder Woman, and an upcoming eBay for Charity auction is about to give fans of the character the chance to own three rare pieces of the character's history. The pieces going up for auction include her very first appearance, 1941's All-Star Comics No. 8.

    That comic, and the first issues of Wonder Woman's two 1940s starring roles — 1942's Sensation Comics No. 1 and Wonder Woman No. 1 — will go up for sale next month in three separate auctions, with a portion of the proceeds going to the non-profit organization Trafficking Hope, which campaigns against human trafficking.

    The Wonder Woman material in each of these issues was written by the character's creator, William Moulton Marston — under the pen name Charles Moulton — with art by Harry G. Peter. An upcoming movie, October's Professor Marston & the Wonder Women, delves into the origin of the character, and the relationships that led the man who invented the lie detector to also create the most iconic female superhero in existence.

    Seller for the auctions is Pristine Comics owner Darren Adams, who sold the first appearance of Superman — 1938's Action Comics No. 1 — for $3.2 million, a record auction for eBay. Whether these Wonder Woman auctions will top that figure remains to be seen, but eBay notes that sales of Wonder Woman material in 2017 are up 59 percent on last year's figure, with "Wonder Woman" having been used as a search term more than 460,000 times this year alone.

    The Wonder Woman auction will begin Aug. 13 at 5 pm PT; before then, more information can be found here.

    Dave Callaham

    The funny thing is that I don't remember a single thing about the plot of the Expendables now, just that it had a lot of old action stars...

    SEPTEMBER 13, 2017 2:18pm PT by Borys Kit
    'The Expendables' Writer Joins Patty Jenkins, Geoff Johns to Write 'Wonder Woman 2' (Exclusive)

    Patty Jenkins on set of 'Wonder Woman,' Dave Callaham

    Dave Callaham already has a strong working relationship with the director, who brought the writer into the fold.

    Dave Callaham, the co-writer of action movie The Expendables, has joined Patty Jenkins and Geoff Johns on the writing team of Wonder Woman 2.

    The move comes just days after Jenkins officially closed her deal to co-write, direct and produce the sequel to the Warner Bros. movie that earned more than $816 million worldwide while also earning raves from critics and fans.

    Jenkins and Johns have been working on a treatment for several months and Callaham will now join the duo to pen the script.

    The storyline is being kept under wraps, but Jenkins has said she wants to jump ahead by several decades from the first film, set in Europe during World War I, and have the sequel take place in America during the Cold War. And she has reportedly said that having the heroine’s signature invisible jet in a movie is of key importance.

    Jenkins and Callaham already have a strong working relationship, and it was Jenkins that brought the writer into the fold. Jenkins was working with him on Jackpot, an English-language adaptation of a book by Jo Nesbo; that project was gearing up to be Jenkins’ next movie before she took on the assignment to direct Wonder Woman.

    Callaham, in addition to originating Expendables, had a story by credit on the 2014 movie Godzilla and worked on a reboot of The Wolfman that is due to be part of Universal’s monster cinematic universe. He is also a writer-executive producer of the Amazon action comedy series Jean Claude van Johnson.

    He is repped by UTA, Kaplan/Perrone Entertainment and Hansen Jacobson.

    Is this having the same impact on government? Why not? Maybe it's coming...

    Gal Gadot will only be ‘Wonder Woman’ again if Brett Ratner is out
    By Emily Smith November 11, 2017 | 5:04pm


    Gal Gadot and Brett Ratner Getty Images

    “Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot is continuing to battle accused Hollywood sexual harasser Brett Ratner by refusing to sign up for a super*hero sequel unless the moviemaker is completely killed from the franchise.

    A Hollywood source tells Page Six that Gadot — who last month backed out of a dinner honoring Ratner, where she was due to present him with an award — is taking a strong stance on sexual harassment in Hollywood and doesn’t want her hit “Wonder Woman” franchise to benefit a man accused of sexual misconduct.

    Ratner’s production company RatPac-Dune Entertainment helped produce “Wonder Woman” as part of its co-financing deal with Warner Bros. The movie has grossed more than $400 million internationally, and Ratner’s company will take a healthy share of the profits. A Warner Bros. insider explained, “Brett made a lot of money from the success of ‘Wonder Woman,’ thanks to his company having helped finance the first movie. Now Gadot is saying she won’t sign for the sequel unless Warner Bros. buys Brett out [of his financing deal] and gets rid of him.”

    The source added of Israeli-born Gadot, “She’s tough and stands by her principles. She also knows the best way to hit people like Brett Ratner is in the wallet. She also knows that Warner Bros. has to side with her on this issue as it develops. They can’t have a movie rooted in women’s empowerment being part-financed by a man *accused of sexual misconduct against women.”

    This past week, Warner Bros. announced it was severing ties with Ratner amid multiple sexual harassment allegations leveled against him by actresses including Olivia Munn and Natasha Henstridge. Ratner has vehemently denied the allegations through his attorney, Marty Singer.

    Earlier this month, Gadot posted on Instagram: “Bullying and sexual harassment is unacceptable! I stand by all the courageous women confronting their fears and speaking out. Together we stand.

    “We are all united in this time of change.”

    Reps for Gadot and Ratner did not comment.

    A rep for Warner Bros said only, “False.”

    More from Gal on Ratner

    Design Sifu & I caught the screener of Justice League last night (we'll have a review up on Friday).

    Gal Gadot Speaks Out on Brett Ratner and 'Wonder Woman'


    Desiree Navarro/WireImage
    Gal Gadot

    "There's so many people involved in making this movie, and they all echo the same sentiments."
    Gal Gadot has spoken on her stance regarding Brett Ratner.

    The star of Wonder Woman was recently said to be refusing to sign on for a sequel if it involved Ratner, who has been plagued with sexual harassment and misconduct allegations. Ratner's RatPac-Dune Entertainment co-financed the initial superhero hit through its slate financing deal with Warner Bros., but such ties have since been severed.

    While speaking with Today's Savannah Guthrie, Gadot commented on the removal of Ratner from the Wonder Woman follow-up. "At the end of the day, a lot has been written about my views and the way that I feel, and everyone knows the way that I feel because I'm not hiding anything," she said. "But the truth is, there's so many people involved in making this movie, and they all echo the same sentiments."

    "Everyone knew what was the right thing to do, but there was nothing for me to actually come and say, because it was already done before this article came out," she added.

    Earlier this month, six women, including actresses Olivia Munn and Natasha Henstridge, detailed their experiences with Ratner in a Los Angeles Times exposé (Ratner's attorney Martin Singer denied all of the accusations in a 10-page letter to the Times). Warner Bros. will honor the financing deal through the end of its contract in March, as RatPac-Dune Entertainment is financing several films on the studio's upcoming slate: Justice League, the Owen Wilson-Ed Helms feature Father Figures, Clint Eastwood's 15:17 to Paris, the ensemble comedy Game Night, the Tomb Raider reboot and Steven Spielberg's adaptation of Ready Player One.

    Cheetah

    EXCLUSIVE: WONDER WOMAN 2 Villain Revealed
    Charles Murphy February 26, 2018

    While much of Warner Bros. DC film slate seems to be in flux, one project stands on extraordinarily firm ground: the sequel to 2017’s Wonder Woman, the most well-received of Warner Bros. recent DC flicks. The original film took in nearly $822M worldwide on a $149M budget, making it a very profitable film and pushing a sequel to the top of Warner Bros. to do list.



    With production slated to begin in the UK in late May (we were given a tentative start date of May 28th), it should come as no surprise that the studio is preparing to cast. We are told that Chris Pine, Ewen Bremner and Said Taghmaoiu are all set to return alongside the film’s star, Gal Gadot, and that Warner Bros. has now turned its attention to the film’s main antagonist: Cheetah!

    The film is said to follow Diana Prince into the 1980s where she will (somehow) reunite with Steve Trevor to take on the now dissolved Soviet Union. According to our source, somewhere in that mix will be the classic DC comics’ villainess Cheetah. You won’t have to dig too deeply into Google to discover that Cheetah sits atop the most wanted list of a large percentage of DC fans, but this is no fan fiction. With just 3 months until filming and with the polished script from Geoff Johns and Dave Callaham in hand, Warner Bros. is on the prowl for their Cheetah and though it’s by no means a done deal at this point, we are told the studio was eyeing actress Emma Stone for the role, but we recently confirmed that she has passed on the role.

    Comic book fans will probably know that the mantle of Cheetah has been held by more than one villain over the years and, thanks to our source, we can shed some light on which iteration to expect in the film. Wonder Woman 2 is set to feature Barbara Ann Minerva, a British anthropologist who becomes the avatar of the cheetah god after locating the lost city of Urzkartagan and stumbling into the middle of an ancient ritual. The third of four characters to carry the mantle of Cheetah, Minerva first appeared in 1987 in Len Wein’s post-Crisis Wonder Woman, Vol. 2, #7 and, after a brief hiatus, reclaimed the title in 2011 when DC launched the New 52.



    It will be interesting to see how WB/DC chooses to bring Cheetah to life on screen and, with so much history behind the character, if they decide to go with an amalgamation of the four different versions of the character or if they fully adopt the New 52 version. With filming just a few months away, we should have some confirmation on this news soon but, in the meantime, keep checking in with That Hashtag Show for news you aren’t getting anywhere else!
    So basically, is Cheetah like Cheetara from the Thundercats? But evil?

    Wiig...wait...what?

    Okay, I love Kristen Wiig but I don't see her in this role, not that I really know who the Cheetah is character-wise. I just think female supervillains that are based on cats should be slinkier.

    Kristen Wiig Being Lassoed For Villain Role On ‘Wonder Woman 2’
    by Mike Fleming Jr

    REX/Shutterstock

    EXCLUSIVE: The hot name for the villainess role in Wonder Woman 2 is Kristen Wiig. Word is that Warner Bros and DC are in talks with Wiig to play the role of Cheetah. The pic, which has Gal Gadot back and director Patty Jenkins, is set in the ’80s during the Cold War. Sounds like this will happen quickly, and a symbol of female empowerment gets a sequel where both main characters are women.

    Wiig has proven her versatility during her run on Saturday Night Live, and she was Oscar-nominated for co-writing Bridesmaids, which also provided her breakout starring turn. This will be her first role as a super villain, so she continues to break new ground. Stay tuned.

    The film is top priority for Warner Bros, after the first grossed $821 million worldwide.

    Hmmm. I guess we'll have to wait and see. I remember when I first heard that the late Heath Ledger was cast to play the Joker in The Dark Knight, there were some who thought he wasn't a great choice. Who knows? She may turn out to be great in the role.

    Fair point Jimbo

    I guess we'll just have to wait and see now. It's confirmed.

    Kristen Wiig Cast as 'Wonder Woman 2' Villain Cheetah
    By BRANDON DAVIS - March 9, 2018

    Kristen Wiig has officially been cast as Cheetah, the villain of the upcoming Wonder Woman sequel.

    Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins took to Twitter to confirm the casting. "So excited to confirm the most thrilling news," Jenkins wrote. "Yes! It's true! So incredibly lucky to welcome the sensationally talented Kristen Wiig to our Wonder Woman family. Can't wait to finally work with one of my favorites. And so excited by what we have planned. #Cheetah!!! @GalGadot."

    Check out the tweet from Jenkins below!



    Wonder Woman 2 is slated to begin production this May in the United Kingdom. Patty Jenkins will return to direct the sequel, with Gal Gadot returning to the titular role. Plot details for the film have not yet been revealed, nor have any additional cast members. While many are hoping to see Chris Pine return to his Steve Trevor role, there is no word on when the film will be set with the last appearance of Wonder Woman having come in Justice League.

    Directly following Wonder Woman 2, Suicide Squad 2 is expected to begin production in the same U.K. studio around October of this year. Like Wonder Woman 2, very few details of the Gavin O'Connor-directed sequel have been revealed. The next film on DC Films' release schedule is Aquaman in December 2018, followed by Shazam! which is currently in production in Toronto, starring Zachary Levi under the direction of David F. Sandberg.

    Wonder Woman 2 is set for release on November 1, 2019.

    "The kids loved it...and so did the staff," one doctor said.

    Gal Gadot on Friday put a smile on numerous faces when she visited a children's hospital in full Wonder Woman costume.

    The actress stopped by Inova Children's Hospital in Annandale, Virginia, and lit up every face she saw there — adult and children alike — clearly seen in pictures shared via social media.

    "Thank you ⁦@GalGadot⁩ for visiting us ⁦@InovaHealth⁩ Children’s Hospital. You are a true Wonder Woman. The kids loved it...and so did the staff #wonderwoman84," Dr. Lucas Collazo tweeted, along with a photo of the staff and the actress.

    A number of other heartwarming photos were shared by Wonder Woman fan accounts on Twitter and reddit.

    Production is underway on Wonder Woman 1984, which reunites Gadot with director Patty Jenkins and co-star Chris Pine, who all worked together on the 2017 hit Wonder Woman.

    Wonder Woman 1984 is due out Nov. 1, 2019.

    Ravi & Gabriella

    I don't know either of these actors. Anyone else here know them?

    Ravi Patel & Gabriella Wilde Boarding ‘Wonder Woman 1984’

    EXCLUSIVE: We are hearing that both Ravi Patel and Gabriella Wilde are joining Warner Bros.’ Wonder Woman 1984. Their roles are being kept under wraps.

    The film which is already in production stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig and Pedro Pascal. Earlier this week Insecure star and co-producer Natasha Rothwell boarded the DC sequel.

    ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ Pushed Back Seven Months to 2020

    Warner Bros. has moved Gal Gadot’s “Wonder Woman 1984” back seven months from Nov. 1, 2019, to June 5, 2020.

    The sequel, which is set in 1984, replaces Mark Wahlberg’s “Six Billion Dollar Man,” which has been taken off the schedule.

    Jeff Goldstein, Warner Bros.’ president of domestic distribution, said, “We had tremendous success releasing the first ‘Wonder Woman’ film during the summer so when we saw an opportunity to take advantage of the changing competitive landscape, we did. This move lands the film exactly where it belongs.”

    “Wonder Woman 1984” is the eighth installment in the DC Universe, and the fourth movie featuring Gadot’s Wonder Woman. The first pic earned $821.8 million worldwide, including $412.6 million in North America. The movie is the highest-grossing film with a female director, as well as the 25th-highest-grossing movie of all time in North America.

    Patty Jenkins is returning to direct. The film was originally dated on Dec. 13, 2019, but was moved forward to Nov. 1 to avoid being just a single week ahead of Disney-Lucasfilm’s “Star Wars: Episode IX,” which opens on Dec. 20, 2019. Chris Pine is also back and Kristen Wiig joins as the villainous Cheetah. Gadot and Jenkins are producing along with Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, Zack Snyder and Stephen Jones.

    Warner Bros. bought the rights to “Six Billion Dollar Man” late last year from the Weinstein Company, which had been developing the movie with Damian Szifron — best known for directing the Argentinian drama “Wild Tales.” The studio had already pushed back the release date for the sci-fi action film by a year, moving the opening from May 31, 2019, to June 5, 2020, in the wake of Szifron departing as director in early May of this year.

    “Wonder Woman 1984” is currently the only film dated for June 5, 2020. Gadot made the announcement Monday on her Twitter account:
