    'Wonder Woman 2' Script Being 'Worked On Right Now'

    With Wonder Woman continuing her assault on the box-office record books, it’s no surprise that the film’s brain trust is already cranking away on a sequel. Although no details have been announced yet — we expect some news at Saturday’s Warner Bros. panel at San Diego Comic-Con — director Patty Jenkins and DC’s Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns are teaming up for the Amazon princess’ second solo outing. “I’m working right now on the Wonder Woman 2 script,” Johns told Yahoo Movies.

    'Dark Knight' Director Christopher Nolan: I Loved 'Wonder Woman'

    After masterminding The Dark Knight trilogy (2005-12) — the Batman films widely regarded as the gold standard in superhero filmmaking — Christopher Nolan maintained a key creative role as an architect of the DC Extended Universe, pitching Warner Bros. the initial idea for and producing the 2013 Superman reboot, Man of Steel. The writer-director played a lesser role as an executive producer on the 2016 crimefighter clash Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but Nolan had revealed a year earlier that he and his cowriter/brother Jonathan Nolan would be stepping away from the DCEU. With BvS responsible for introducing Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, we wanted to see if Christopher Nolan had seen 2017’s biggest superhero sensation to date, the Patty Jenkins-directed Wonder Woman.

    The Story Behind the Black-and-White Photo That Linked 'Batman v Superman' and 'Wonder Woman'

    DC’s new superhero hit Wonder Woman is an origin story no doubt, but the backstory to Gal Gadot’s Amazonian warrior actually began to unfold more than a year earlier in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The folks behind DC Comics clearly did, and according to Wonder Woman star Ewen Bremner, they wasted no time in capturing the moment.

    Wonder Woman is the first major female-led superhero movie to come out in more than a decade and unquestionably the most anticipated one in comic-book film history. While Gal Gadot stars as Amazonian warrior Diana Prince, Chris Pine plays Steve Trevor, an Air Force officer who in some of the trailers is seen being defended by Wonder Woman, as Superman once protected Lois Lane.

    Holy Easter Eggs! How 'The Lego Batman Movie' Celebrates the Caped Crusader's Big-Screen History

    One triumph of The Lego Batman Movie is its ability to simultaneously satirize and celebrate the legacy of the Dark Knight, a rich history spanning eight decades of comic books, TV shows, and, especially, films. From Will Arnett’s Christian Bale-inspired gravelly growl to callbacks to the 1940s serial, The Lego Batman Movie is overstuffed with cinematic references and inside jokes. The pilot immediately calls out the Joker, pointing out how his previous big-screen endeavors were thwarted by the Caped Crusaders, alluding to both 2008’s The Dark Knight and 1989’s Batman.

    The Joker's Still Getting Away… Celebrating 50 Years of 'Jingle Bells, Batman Smells'

    Why did “Jingle Bells” get this particular spoof? Spike Jones’s uptempo romp, Yogi Yorgesson (“Yingle Bells“), and the Three Stooges (“Jingle Bells Drag“) showed that “Jingle Bells” could be played for broader comedic effect. As writer Rob Weir documents on his blog, children began applying funny lyrics to the song’s simple rhymes and familiar melody at least as early as the 1950s, while wildly racist versions sprung up in the South in the 1950s and 1960s during the Civil Rights Movement.

    Remember that mid-credits scene in Suicide Squad? The frosty meeting between Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) and Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) ends with her handing over a folder full of metahuman files and him issuing a warning about her Task Force X, of which he definitely does not approve. “You should shut it down. My friends and I will do it for you.” And with that fans began drooling over the thought of a future film.

    DC Comics writer Greg Rucka made headlines recently when he acknowledged what many fans of Wonder Woman have long suspected: that the superhero is bisexual. With that news in mind, we wondered whether her sexuality would be represented on screen in next June’s highly anticipated solo adventure Wonder Woman? “It’s not in the film,” Gadot told Yahoo Movies (watch above) while visiting our studios with her Keeping Up With the Joneses castmates Jon Hamm, Isla Fisher, and Zach Galifianakis.

    'Wonder Woman' Comic Writer Confirms Hero Is Bisexual

    DC Entertainment’s Wonder Woman, who is currently in the midst of her 75th birthday celebrations, has been confirmed as being queer by current writer Greg Rucka — a confirmation that might not come as the biggest surprise to anyone reading the Wonder Woman comic book series. In an interview with Comicosity, Rucka confirmed speculation regarding the hero’s sexuality, and also talked about the difficulty in writing on the subject — in large part because of the character’s origins on the female-only island of Themyscira. “It’s supposed to be paradise,” Rucka explained.

    Going into Suicide Squad, much of the attention rightly focused on Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn as the breakout member of the dysfunctional, dastardly ensemble. When the team codenamed Task Force X is assembled, government puppetmaster Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) singles out the Enchantress as the linchpin, exponentially more powerful than the others, yet also the biggest wildcard. The challenge is reining in the source of her powers — an ancient demon-witch that has inhabited the body of a young woman with an only-in-the-comics name of June Moone.
