Since the box office smash debuted earlier this summer, it appeared a given that Jenkins would return to helm the follow-up with reports saying that she was already working on a script with Geoff Johns and Jon Berg.
“To paraphrase Queen Hippolyta, “we do deserve her,” and every great female-led superhero movie that Hollywood now makes because of Wonder Woman. If that’s not heroic, I don’t know what is,” writes John Steven Rocha.
Wonder Woman was always going to be relevant and revolutionary — it’s the first female-led film in the current wave of superhero films and it’s helmed by a female director, after all. But media is never created or consumed in a vacuum and now, its relevance is singular and powerful.
Based on the bestselling book series by Dav Pilkey, the animated film follows two mischievous kids who hypnotize their mean elementary school principal and turn him into their comic book creation — a kind-hearted but incredibly dimwitted superhero named Captain Underpants.

Warner Bros. is shifting a couple of things around when it comes to the release dates of two of their most highly-anticipated films: Wonder Woman and The Jungle Book: Origins. The studio also announced release dates for two other DC comic book movies.
With Wonder Woman finally in production casting notices have been slowly rolling in over the past few months, but this latest may surprise. After rumors that Robin Wright had signed on for the role of Hippolyta, it has now been learned that Connie Nielsen is set to play the famed Amazon.
Starring Gal Gadot and Chris Pine, Wonder Woman already sets high expectations for the rest of the cast. Word has spread that Sean Bean and Eva Green are in early talks to join them.
Chris Pine has now officially closed a deal to star as love interest to Gal Gadot in Wonder Woman. The pic marks the first solo outing for the Amazonian warrior turned superheroine after the character makes her debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which bows in 2016.
Pine is in talks to play Steve Trevor. In the DC comic book universe, Trevor is a pilot that crash-lands on Paradise Island, the home of the Amazons, and falls in love with Diana, AKA Wonder Woman.
