Wonder Woman 3 already has its story completely written, according to director Patty Jenkins.
New film Wonder Woman 1984 will come out in 2020, and though its follow-up has no planned release date, it seems that it’s already in the works.

The first Wonder Woman was a box office hit upon release in 2017, with an NME review calling it “an absolute delight”, saying: “If you’ve been suffering from superhero fatigue, Wonder Woman will restore your faith in the genre with DC’s best effort since The Dark Knight, in turn ramping up expectations for the forthcoming Justice League.”
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Jenkins revealed that, although there could be changes between now and the film’s eventual release, she “already know[s] the whole story to it.
“It’s just a matter of, will we change our minds, and when [to make it],” the director added. “I think what we don’t want to do is do it back to back. It’s been great doing these two movies back to back, but I think it’s important to give it a little rest in between. And I like doing other things in between. And Gal has other things to do.
She added: “I never want to make decisions too far in advance. We have to see if we both feel like making the movie we think we want to make when the moment comes.”
Jenkins has recently said that Wonder Woman 3 will be “a contemporary story”, explaining that she’s “not dying to do another period piece.”
“It’s definitely one of the things we talked about,” she said of setting a film in the future. “I’m not planning to put it in the past again, because where are you going to go? You have to go forward. It’s definitely a contemporary story. That’s all I can say. Where we put it and how that gets figured out, I haven’t totally nailed down.”
