Wonder Woman fans may be looking forward to DC’s new live-action movie focused on the superhero due out next year, but during New York Comic Con, the publisher announced that there are a couple of other projects in the pipeline.
On top of a live-action biopic about the creator of Wonder Woman that will star Luke Evans and Rebecca Hall, Warner Bros. announced that it was currently working on a stand-alone, animated Wonder Woman film. During the Justice League Dark panel, Warner Bros. Animation supervising producer James Tucker said that creating a new animated Wonder Woman was something the company was deeply invested in.
“We discussed with Warner video, and they have Wonder Woman on their radar in some form or fashion,” Tucker said, as reported by Heroic Hollywood.
Recently, the animated projects coming out of DC and Warner Bros. have been Batman oriented, with the latest starring the cast of the original Batman TV series from 1966. On Saturday, DC announced that the next animated project after Justice League Dark would be a sequel to the Batman film, Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders, and would star William Shatner as the villainous Two-Face.
Tucker didn’t announce when Wonder Woman fans should expect an animated feature focused on the heroine, but considering the live-action stand-alone is out in less than a year, the wait shouldn’t be too long. The new Wonder Woman animated film would mark the first time the hero has received her own stand-alone project since 2009.
Wonder Woman hits theaters June 2, 2017.
