If you’ve been watching the trailer wishing it were just another movie, don’t worry. Anothermovie is coming, and it’s coming really soon. The sequel release date has officially been announced: Dec. 13, 2019.
The sequel was officially confirmed last week, and Warner Bros. announced therelease date on Tuesday evening.According to The Hollywood Reporter,director Patty Jenkins is in talks to direct the sequel but has not officially announced her return at this point.
Guys! December 2019? That’s so soon! That’s only a year and a half from now! That means we’ll presumably have ateaser trailer by spring!
And don’t forget that we’ll be getting more of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman in, which hits theaters November 2017. Based on the trailer, you’ll probably be able to pretend this is just another movie if you just hold your hand up to block out Ben Affleck’s face during the Batman scenes.
Meanwhile, the first film continues to absolutely kill it at the box office. The movie has grossed over $389 million in the domestic box office since its release on June 2, making it the number two highest grossing film of 2017. (Number one is stillwhich sits at about $500 million in the domestic box office.)
and Patty Jenkins have broken so many records at this point that it’s hard to keep up, but I’ll try to list a few here. Earlier this month the film earned the title of highest domestic earning for a DC Expanded Universe movie. It’s also thehighest grossing live-action film directed by a woman, the highest-grossing opening weekend for a woman director ever, and the highest-grossing woman-led superhero film ever.
So uh, yeah, I’d say Warner Bros. has a pretty safe bet in making this sequel. Can it be December 2019 already?
