Gal Gadot, who had originally signed for three feature films with Wonder Woman being her second, had extended her contract beyond that. Director of the first film, Patty Jenkins, who was initially signed for only one film, had expressed interest in returning to direct the sequel. In June 2017, during an interview with Variety, comic book writer Geoff Johns revealed that he and Jenkins had started writing the treatment for a Wonder Woman sequel and that he had a "cool idea for the second one". While speaking in a Q&A at Women in Film screening of the film, Jenkins confirmed she would indeed direct the sequel. However, Jenkins later tweeted that "it wasn't a confirmation. Just talking about ideas and hopes". On July 22, 2017, at San Diego Comic Con, the studio officially announced a sequel would be coming with Jenkins returning as director, and the sequel's title was shown as Wonder Woman 2. In September 2017, it was officially confirmed that Jenkins would be directing the sequel, that she had closed a deal with studio and she would get paid in-between $7 to $9 million range. On September 13, 2017, it was reported that The Expendables's writer David Callaham would join the film to write the screenplay along with Jenkins and Johns, who were already working on the script for several months. On February 28, 2018, it was reported that the film will be shot with IMAX film cameras in select action sequences. By June 2018, the title of the film was announced to be Wonder Woman 1984.
Pre-production officially began in the United Kingdom by early-December 2017. That same month, director Patty Jenkins stated that the film will be another great love story with a new love interest being cast. In April 2018, the film was confirmed to be set in 1980s. The next month, French production designer Aline Bonetto (Amélie, Wonder Woman) was announced to be returning for the sequel, as well as Academy Award winner Lindy Hemming, also returning as costume designer. Richard Pearson will serve as the editor for Wonder Woman 1984.
In September 2017, Gal Gadot was confirmed to return as the title character. On February 28, 2018, it was reported that Kristen Wiig was in talks with the studio to play Cheetah, the main villain of the film, with director Patty Jenkins confirming her casting the next month. On March 28, Pedro Pascal, who played Ed Indelicato in the pilot of the canceled 2011 Wonder Woman television adaptation, was cast in an undisclosed key role. On June 13, director Patty Jenkins confirmed the addition of Chris Pine as Steve Trevor through Twitter.
Principal photography began in Georgetown (Washington, D.C.) on June 13, 2018, under the working title Magic Hour. Filming will take place at the Warner Bros. Studios, Leavesden in the United Kingdom, and at a number of locations around the District of Columbia and Northern Virginia in the United States, including the Landmark Mall in Alexandria, Virginia during June and July 2018. Scenes will be shot in Alexandria from June 18 through July 14. Production will also take place at the islands of Tenerife and Fuerteventura in Spain, between August and September 2018.
It was reported on June 22, 2018, that while plans have not been finalized, Gal Gadot would be attending San Diego Comic-Con for the Warner Bros' DC presentation, she would be promoting the new film with a special look of the film.
