We did it. Again!! And as much as the first time shooting Wonder Woman was amazing, this time was even more unique and special.. We shot in 4 very different locations in 3 countries, and I’m so soooo proud of the almost 1000 crew members who came to set every day, giving everything they have into our movie. Couldn’t ask for better partners on this.. I’m so lucky to have the one and only Patty Jenkins, as my director. She always has our backs, she gives us the wings to dare, and everyday she helped us find the most creative version of ourselves .. I am so grateful to call her my friend. And to our AMAZINGly talented cast who made every day enjoyable and fun, thank you! Honestly.. Words cannot describe this experience.. This journey was so demanding and challenging but we all came and did our very best every take, every day, putting our all out there and I’m so proud… Thank you universe for this opportunity. I love this character. And thank you to all of you for being the best fans in the world. It was you that made me push myself every day. I’m so happy and excited, can’t wait to share it with you in 2020! ❤️ Gal

After the disappointing box office result of ‘Justice League’, DC will try to get back on track with the next adventure of the Amazonian princess in WONDER WOMAN 2.
GAL GADOT (Justice League) will reprise her role as ‘Diana Prince’ to face off with her greatest foe ‘Cheetah’ during the Cold War era in the 1980s.
There has been many versions of ‘Cheetah’ throughout the history of ‘Wonder Woman’ but it looks like the film will go with the New 52 DC Comics version, ‘Barbara Ann Minerva’. She is “a British anthropologist who gains her superpowers after stumbling upon an ancient ritual in the lost city of Urzkartaga”. It was rumored that Oscar Winner EMMA STONE (Amazing Spider-Man 2) was offered the role but has turned it down.
Director PATTY JENKINS is once again in charge behind the camera with SAID TAGHMAOUI and EWEN BREMNER returning as ‘Sameer’ and ‘Charlie’. Despite his heroic faith at the end of the first installment, leading man CHRIS PINE is surprisingly also set to return as ‘Steve Trevor’. Production starts rolling this May in the UK.
Who would you like to take on the role of the villainess ‘Cheetah’? Comment below.
