Warner Bros chairman Toby Emmerich said, "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,"

Director Jenkins had recently cast doubt on whether she would be involved in the final part of the trilogy and said it could be a long time before the film sees the light of day, especially given the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the movie industry.

"It's interesting, I actually came up with a story, and Geoff Johns aIready beat out an entire story for 'Wonder Woman 3' that we were super fired up about, but I’ve never felt this way before as much as I do now.

"I don’t think I’m doing it next and so I have to sort of wait and see where we are in the world, you know? What I wanted to talk about in ['WW84'] was very prescient to what I was feeling and what you were sort of feeling was coming. So now I’m not sure. So much has changed in the world."

Jenkins insisted she "still love[s] the story, I’m sure parts of it, would come over to it, but … I’m trying to say [to myself], 'Don’t decide. Don’t fall in love with anything. What would Wonder Woman do now? Like, what are you craving Wonder Woman to do now in this world?’"

Wonder Woman 1984 is expected to be available to stream in Ireland in mid-January.
