As we may all be aware of by now, Gal Gadot’s version of Diana Prince or Wonder Woman has been nothing less of exquisite. From the first movie to HBO Max’s newest Wonder Woman 1984, everyone working in front and behind of the camera deserves ultimate praise.

The biggest form of praise, during these uncertain times in the pandemic, is our support for any project that comes out. However, that may have overflown considering that after just a couple of days Wonder Woman 1984 came out in theaters and HBO Max, the third Wonder Woman movie was confirmed.
Even after the awaited film was scheduled to arrive in a controversial theatrical release and in HBO’s streaming platform, the anticipated DC sequel still brought the business $16 million during its box office––hands down the best weekend opening since the beginning of the pandemic in March. That says something about Warner Bros. and their tactics––lethally good.
“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,” Warner Bros. chief, Toby Emmerich, said in a statement.
“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,” added Andy Forssell, WarnerMedia’s head of 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.”
