Because the folks at Warner Bros. presumably like making money and because last year’s Wonder Woman starring Gal Gadot raked in $822 million worldwide, they’re at work on the seque right nowl. The studio released a few first looks of the next movie, and it reveals that we’ll watch Wonder Woman taking to the 1980’s in the film, to be called Wonder Woman 1984. I get that nobody freaks our inner middle schooler out like a George Orwell reference, but I really think they missed an opportunity here by not having Wonder Woman just team up with Julia Sugarbaker to take down that bitch who mocked Suzanne during that “The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia” episode of the first season of Designing Women.

Wonder Woman was one of the biggest films of 2017; it made almost $822 million worldwide, got mostly good reviews and is locked down for a sequel. But about two months after Wonder Woman’s release, James Cameron decided to verbally crap all over her good time, saying the film wasn’t really the feminist celebration people thought it was.
WW director Patty Jenkins slapped back at James. Gal Gadot kept quit until now. It turns out she was operating under a “Don’t feed the troll” mentality.
A couple of months ago, James Cameron opined that the most recent Patty Jenkins helmed blockbuster Wonder Woman, starring Gal Gadot, was a step back for women everywhere because Gal has nice tits. Recently, James was out promoting Avatar 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8 (7 will go straight to streaming) and decided to show the world what a real feminist looks like and doubled down on his criticism of Patty’s “too hot for basement dwelling neckbeards to handle” film. Thankfully Lynda Carter, a true feminist icon, was there to titty slap James across the face.
According to People Magazine, TV’s original Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter, is ready and willing to make an appearance in inevitable follow up to this summer’s hit, the Wonder Woman film version starring Gal Gadot. In fact, Lynda said “we were trying to get me in the first one and we couldn’t make it work with our timing.” She’s already discussed a possible role in the “all but confirmed” sequel with director Patty Jenkins.
Wonder Woman is a huge success. It’s made almost $654 million, has received great reviews, is breaking box office records and getting a sequel. They’re even rumored to be re-shooting Justice League to include more of her. It seems like everyone loves Wonder Woman, but not everyone does. There are some people out there who are shrugging “More like Whatever Woman” over it, and one of those people is Alicia Silverstone.
Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot probably spent their Monday morning drinking a crystal champagne flute full of the sparkling tears of the man children who cried and threw tantrum over the women’s only screening in Austin. Because in four days, Wonder Woman has made almost a quarter of a billion dollars worldwide. That number may seem impressive, but I’m shrugging at it. I mean, after seeing the prices for the IMAX 3D showings of Wonder Woman, I can tell you that $250,000 million would cover about 22 tickets and a small thing of popcorn.
