Warner Bros. confirmed that the third movie in the franchise will have a traditional theatrical release. “As fans around the world continue to embrace Diana Prince, driving the strong opening weekend performance of ‘Wonder Woman 1984,’ we are excited to be able to continue her story with our real life Wonder Women — Gal and Patty — who will return to conclude the long-planned theatrical trilogy,” it said in a statement, Variety reported.

Released in India on December 24, Wonder Woman 1984 has, so far, collected USD 85 million globally. “‘Wonder Woman 1984’ broke records and exceeded our expectations across all of our key viewing and subscriber metrics in its first 24 hours on the service, and the interest and momentum we’re seeing indicates this will likely continue well beyond the weekend,” said Andy Forssell, head of WarnerMedia’s direct-to-consumer business. “During these very difficult times, it was nice to give families the option of enjoying this uplifting film at home, where theater viewing wasn’t an option.”

Earlier, the director of the Gal Gadot-starrer Wonder Woman, Jenkins had said that the making of a third film was “questionable” amid the coronavirus pandemic. Reportedly, for the sequel, Jenkins received a 10 million dollar paycheck, a record salary for a female filmmaker.
