Just two days after Diana Prince returned to the big — and small — screen in "Wonder Woman 1984," Warner Bros. announced on Sunday, Dec. 27, that a third installment in the franchise is already in the works — complete with Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot.
That was a good bet on the studio's part, as "Wonder Woman 1984" proved over the holiday weekend, earning an estimated $16.7 million at the box office domestically, despite the movie's simultaneous streaming premiere on HBO Max.
According to Warner Bros., that gives "WW 1984" the "best opening weekend to date" since the coronavirus pandemic began.

While the cast opted to forgo the traditional promo routes this weekend due to the COVID-19 threat, Gal stayed busy interacting with fans on Twitter during a "Wonder Woman 1984" online watch party.
Afterwards, she sent big shout-outs to the crew, Patty and others who worked on the movie, including her co-stars, Kristen Wiig, who played Barbara Minerva (aka Cheetah) and Chris Pine, who returned as Diana's love interest Steve Trevor.
The sar had some other special co-stars for her second run as Wonder Woman, too, including her husband, Yaron Varsono, who pops up at one point in the film. The couple's daughters, Maya, 3, and Alma, 9, make appearances as well.
"It meant a lot, especially in that very special scene," Gal recently told ReelFilm podcast host Kevin McCarthy. "I have two daughters, both of them appeared, the oldest appeared with Ace, Patty's son, and then my youngest one, with whom I was pregnant with during the reshoots for 'Wonder Woman,' the first one, was there with my husband."
Gal added: "To have them captured in the film with me, because they are a part of it, meant a lot, and it's an amazing, amazing souvenir that we will forever cherish."
