Wonder Woman’s many fans won’t have to wait long before the Amazon princess is back on the big screen. In Justice League (in theaters Nov. 17), Diana (Gal Gadot) pairs up again with Batman (Ben Affleck) and welcomes Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) to the superhero fold.

“Literally, the day (after) I wrapped Wonder Woman, I started to shoot Justice League,” Gadot told USA TODAY. “It feels really good to know your character to a degree where you are very opinionated about what she should do and what she shouldn’t do.”
The prequel nature of Wonder Woman will dovetail with “the why of Justice League and who she is finally realized. We know now where she comes from,” director Zack Snyder told USA TODAY.
Following the death of his 20-year-old daughter, Snyder has handed over the post-production reins to Joss Whedon, who is filming new scenes to finish the project.

When do we get ‘Wonder Woman 2’?
Justice League is exciting and all, but after a record-breaking debut, what fans are really clamoring for is another standalone Wonder Woman film. But there’s a some housekeeping to take care of first. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. will soon begin negotiations with director Patty Jenkins, who was only signed for one film and now “will have major leverage thanks to the movie’s historic opening weekend.”
Though the studio hasn’t formally announced a sequel, there seem to be plans afoot: In April, Jenkins told Entertainment Weekly that the next chapter “will take place in the U.S., which I think is right. She’s Wonder Woman. She’s got to come to America. It’s time.”
But in what era? Gadot joked with USA TODAY she’d like to see Diana Prince kicking it ’90-style. “I love the ’90s just because of the music. All of the sudden, you see her go on roller blades — it could be funny!”

But more importantly, when does Wonder Woman meet Harley Quinn?
Fans would probably salivate over a meeting between Wonder Woman and Margot Robbie’s Suicide Squad bad girl Harley Quinn. If so she’d have to visit Batman’s hometown in Gotham City Sirens, an all-female villain-centric film in development that will reteam Robbie with Squad director David Ayer. Another dose of Suicide is also in the works, with Adam Cozad (The Legend of Tarzan) tapped to write the sequel.

We’re also getting a Batgirl movie!
Whedon was hired to write and direct Batgirl, and while there’s no Barbara Gordon cast yet, he’s open to a fresh face: “Somebody who is willing to go the distance. It is going to be hard. I want somebody who’s going to get in the trenches with me,” he told USA TODAY.

So what else can we expect?
Momoa’s Aquaman solo film (out Dec. 21, 2018) is filming in Australia with director James Wan (Furious 7) and a cast that includes Nicole Kidman, Patrick Wilson and Amber Heard, who’s been sharing photos of Aquaman’s love match Mera on social media. Affleck originally signed to direct and star in the planned The Batman project, but he’s handed the director reins to Matt Reeves (War for the Planet of the Apes). Miller and Fisher also have solo films in development, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is on tap to play the supervillain Black Adam in a future Shazam movie, and down the line, there’s Green Lantern Corps, featuring DC’s resident space cops, and a Justice League Dark movie, which would deal with the more magical corners of Wonder Woman’s world.
