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.
'We haven't announced any casting yet,' Johns says. 'But Dwayne isn't going to be in this movie. He's still doing Black Adam, but he won't be in Shazam!'
In early May, The Hollywood Reporter told us Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder, the man DC tabbed to shape their franchise, was seeing his control lessened. DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns and Executive VP Jon Berg instead were going to be the creative leads of their cinematic universe. With the onslaught of negative articles directed at Snyder’s film and the hand-wringing over what will come to pass in future films, you’d think DC was in a state of turmoil.
The fallout from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice continues to ripple through Warner Bros. Current exec vp Jon Berg and Geoff Johns, DC’s CCO who successfully launched the comics label’s foray into television, will co-run DC Films, according to multiple sources.
