In April 2017, director Patty Jenkins talked about the possibility of a sequel, stating "I'm excited for her to come to America and become the Wonder Woman we are all familiar with from having grown up around her as an American superhero. I'd like to bring her a little farther along into the future and have a fun, exciting storyline that is its own thing. Wonder Woman 1 is so much about her becoming the person she is. I can't wait to spring forward with who she is and have another great standalone superhero film." In May 2017, Zack Snyder has confirmed that a sequel is in the works.
In October 2018, the film's release date was pushed back for a second time. Now it is scheduled to hit theaters on June 5, 2020.
