Wonder Woman, the crown jewel of the DC Extended Universe, is switching things up at least a little bit for its upcoming sequel, which, we now know, will be called Wonder Woman 1984. "Wonder Woman 1984" will also be helmed by acclaimed director Patty Jenkins, and star Gal Gadot in the title role.
In a pleasant morning surprise, Warner Bros. has released the first Wonder Woman 2 images from the highly anticipated sequel, as filming on the follow-up is now underway. An explanation for his return, given the events of the first film, is still unclear.

How? "Wonder Woman" won near-unanimous acclaim from critics and fans alike, and earned more than $800 million worldwide.
There's no word yet as to whether original "Wonder Woman" Lynda Carter has converted Gadot to following the Caps.
