Lynda Carter has had talks with Patty Jenkins about Wonder Woman 2 role

Having missed out on the opportunity to make a cameo in the first movie due to scheduling conflicts, both Lynda Carter and director Patty Jenkins have expressed their desire to have TV’s Amazon Princess appear in next year’s sequel to Wonder Woman.

Well, with Wonder Woman 2 due to begin production next month, Carter has revealed to The Wrap that she has had talks with Jenkins about a role in the movie, but as yet it is not a done deal.

“That is up to Patty Jenkins,” said Carter. “I’ve been talking to her about it. She’s given me some hints about it and I guess it’s up to Warner Bros if they want to spend the money … It really is up to Patty, and if it works in an organic way it’ll be great fun and it’ll be wonderful to do.”

Riz Ahmed reportedly wanted for Wonder Woman 2

Last week it was announced that Narcos and Game of Thrones actor Pedro Pascal has been cast in Warner Bros. and DC FilmsWonder Woman 2, and now comes a rumour from The Tracking Board’s Jeff Sneider that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’s Riz Ahmed may also be up for a role in the superhero sequel.

“From what I understood there were two decently-sized male roles for Wonder Woman 2, and one was a slippery con-man type, and the other was an imposing businessman,” said Sneider on Meet the Movie Press. “And really I suppose [Pascal] could play either. I’d heard that they were looking at Riz Ahmed for that role, but I never knew how that was going to happen with the Venom stuff, since he’s got a major role in Venom.”

As Sneider notes, Ahmed does have a key role in Sony’s Spider-Man spinoff Venom,

According to The Tracking Board, Pascal is likely portraying “a slippery conman known in the script as Rex”, which the site says is the only new male character in the sequel who could be described as a lead role.

The report goes on to state that Connie Nielsen, Lisa Loven Kongsli and Doutzen Kroes are slated to return as the Amazonians Queen Hippolyta, Menalippe and Venelia, while cameos from Ewen Bremner (Charlie) and Said Taghmaoui (Sameer) are also expected.

Wonder Woman was the most profitable superhero movie of 2017, and most profitable Dceu film to date

Warner Bros. scored a rare win for the DC Extended Universe last year with Wonder Woman. Not only did it win over fans and critics alike, but it also went on to gross $822 million around the globe.

Lynda Carter on Wonder Woman being snubbed at the Oscars, open to appearing in the sequel

Despite being nominated by the Producers Guild of America at the 2018 PGA Awards, Warner Bros.DC blockbuster Wonder Woman not only found itself missing out on a Best Picture nomination at the Academy Awards, but was also shut out entirely at the Oscars – something that left TV’s Wonder Woman Lynda Carter feeling very disappointed.

“I’m very close to Patty, and I think Gal Gadot did a wonderful job,” Carter told The Daily Beast. “I was really happy to see they showed a clip of the film during the Oscars, even though they didn’t nominate it for anything. Anything. It should have been nominated. They were left out of special effects, writing, everything. Patty did an amazing job. The essence of the character is not an easy one to find the right balance of. Patty got it.”

Wonder Woman 2 and Suicide Squad 2 production start dates revealed

With Warner Bros. and DC Films taking stock of the DC Extended Universe after the lacklustre reception to last year’s Justice League, it seems we’re now getting a good idea as to the next phase of their cinematic superhero universe.

We know that DC has Aquaman set to arrive in December, followed by Shazam – which is now in production – in April 2019 and Wonder Woman 2 in December 2019. Well, it seems that Diana’s second solo outing will then be followed by Suicide Squad 2, with Omega Underground reporting that director Gavin O’Connor will be reassembling the worst heroes ever to start shooting the sequel in the UK in October. Before then, Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot will also return to the UK to start principal photography on Wonder Woman 2 beginning May 28th 2018.

The Main Villain of Wonder Woman 2 is Said to Be Cheetah

There's not a lot known about Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman 2. We've previously heard that the movie will be set in the 1980s during the Cold War. Now we have some additional details thanks to That Hashtag Show, who I know has some very solid sources who feed them this information. But, until there is an official confirmation, we will treat the following information as a rumor.

The report says that Chris Pine, Ewen Bremner and Said Taghmaoiu are all set to reprise their roles alongside Gal Gadot, and they've revealed that the main villain in the film will be Cheetah! Here's some information that they offer in which they say the studio wanted Emma Stone in the role.

The film is said to follow Diana Prince into the 1980s where she will (somehow) reunite with Steve Trevor to take on the now dissolved Soviet Union. According to our source,

Wonder Woman 2: first rumours of villain

Feb 27, 2018

It looks like Cheetah will be the villain in the upcoming Wonder Woman sequel...

Filming is set to begin later this year on Wonder Woman 2, that’ll again be directed by Patty Jenkins. Gal Gadot will be reprising the lead role too, with Sai’d Taghmaoui and Ewen Bremner set to return.

We’ve got a first rumour too as to who the new villain of the piece will be. It looks like the film is settling on Cheetah as the main foe, a role that was apparently offered to Emma Stone, who has passed on the opportunity.

Cheetah initially is set to start out as Miss Minerva, who gains powers after discovering the lost city of Urzkartaga, and an ancient ritual within it.

Who will play the role is unclear at the moment, and inevitably, Warner Bros hasn’t confirmed the direction of the new film as of yet.

Emma Stone reportedly passes on Cheetah role in Wonder Woman 2

Emma Stone reportedly passes on Cheetah role in Wonder Woman 2
With director Patty Jenkins and star Gal Gadot gearing up to begin production on Wonder Woman 2 this spring, it was only a matter of time before we started getting some casting rumours for the DC sequel.

Well, sure enough, we’ve now got a report from That Hashtag Show, which claims that the follow-up to last year’s solo blockbuster will find Diana going up against one of her fiercest foes in Dr. Barbara Ann Minerva, a.k.a. Cheetah.

If the report is to be believed, Warner Bros. and Jenkins are seeking an A-list actress for the role, and had made an offer to The Amazing Spider-Man and La La Land star Emma Stone, although the Oscar winner passed on the opportunity.

The third incarnation of the Cheetah character, Barbara Ann Minerva made her first appearance in 1987 and is a British archeologist who is granted the power of

WB Rumored To Be Seeking Big Name To Play Cheetah In Wonder Woman 2

After the first Wonder Woman flick cleaned up at the box office, it was only expected that a sequel be imminent. And most fortunate for moviegoers and the film franchise itself is that the character does indeed have decently rich rogues gallery to mine for future installments, thus alleviating any pressure to desperately search for a villain, as is sometimes the case for pictures of this sort.

Already, rumors have emerged saying that Circe will serve as the chief antagonist in the highly anticipated follow-up, but I’m actually lukewarm to the idea of her inclusion, something that I’ll elaborate on momentarily. Personally, I was hoping for someone like Cheetah, who’s actually named outright in the latest chatter.

According to the folks over at That Hashtag Show, Warner Bros. are seeking out a big name to play Barbara Minerva and her animalistic alter ego, with Emma Stone supposedly already having been courted.

Gal Gadot explains why she never responded to James Cameron’s Wonder Woman criticism

Although Wonder Woman garnered near-universal acclaim following its release last year – including a nomination at the WGA Awards this week – one person who didn’t seem to be much of a fan was James Cameron, with the Titanic and Avatar director describing the movie as a “step backwards” for the representation of females on screen.

While both director Patty Jenkins and TV Wonder Woman Lynda Carter both issues firm responses to Cameron’s criticisms, the Amazon Princess herself Gal Gadot opted to stay silent on the subject, and during an interview with EW, the actress has revealed why:

“Because I didn’t want to give him the stage,” said Gadot. “First of all, I’m a big fan of his work. His movies are great. He was very innovative in many things that he did, and I’ve got nothing but great things to say about the creative and professional side of his work.

Patty Jenkins promises a totally different experience for Wonder Woman 2

After Wonder Woman absolutely killed it this past June, a sequel was all but inevitable. It wasn’t too long before we received word of a June 2018 production start date for Wonder Woman 2, and confirmation that Patty Jenkins would be back in the directors chair.

Rumors have been circulating that the film will be set in the 1980s, with Wonder Woman facing off against the Soviets during The Cold War. While we don’t have official confirmation on that, we do have a bit of information regarding the sequel from Patty Jenkins herself. Talking to Et, the director promises a film that stands on its own:

“We’re actually making a totally different film with a lot of the same, similar like things that we love, but it’s its own movie completely, so it’s not ‘two’ to us. It’s an entirely new adventure together that we
