Patty Jenkins is returning to direct the sequel that will star Gal Gadot as the Amazonian princess. Very few plot details are known, but the follow-up will be set in the 1980s against the backdrop of the Cold War.

As previously announced, Kristen Wiig will star as Cheetah, the film's villain. Details of Pascal's role are being kept under lock and key, but it will be a reunion for him and Jenkins, the two having previously worked together on the TV movie Exposed
