While fans of the DC Cinematic Universe wait with bated breath for the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the rest of the cinematic universe is moving full speed ahead with new projects.
Warner Bros. is already hard at work on the follow-ups to Zack Snyder’s highly-anticipated film, as the solo Wonder Woman and Justice League Part One are already gearing up to begin.
Speaking with Collider, producer Charles Roven revealed that production on Wonder Woman will begin later this month with filming in the UK and Italy and that it will be followed by Justice League: Part One next year.
“We’re making most of Wonder Woman [in the U.K.] and we’re also making most of Justice League there, JL One . . . we’re definitely gonna be shooting Part One in the first or second quarter of next year.”
Wonder Woman will be directed by Patty Jenkins, which will see Gal Gadot reprise her role as the Amazonian warrior. Also joining the cast will be Chris Pine as Steve Trevor and Nicole Kidman as “a high-ranking Amazonian warrior.” Wonder Woman will debut in theaters on June 23, 2017.
Snyder will climb back into the director’s chair for Justice League: Part One, which is scheduled for release on November 10, 2017. It’s anticipated that the film will star Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, and Ray Fisher as Cyborg.
It will be followed Justice League Part Two on June 14, 2019.
