“So excited to confirm the most thrilling news,” Jenkins said. “Yes! It’s true! So incredibly lucky to welcome the sensationally talented Kristen Wiig to our Wonder Woman family. Can’t wait to finally work with one of my favorites. And SO excited by what we have planned.”

Wonder Woman 2 is expected to start filming this summer. It will be released on November 1, 2019.

Thanks to Batman News writer Jay Yaws for the heads up!
