Everyone else go home, the lead role for Wonder Woman 24 (or whatever number the sequels will reach in about 20 years) has already been taken. In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight Canada, Gal Gadot revealed that her 6-year-old daughter Alma has been eyeing the superhero role despite not having seen the film. “She loves it. She didn’t watch the movie yet, because I’m the mother and I just try and protect her and give her normal things, but she will definitely,” she said. “She’s very proud. She’s very, very proud… She’s already asked me if she can take over when I’m older.”
If at any point Alma decides the Lasso of Truth is not for her, Gal might want to pass on her teachings from Themyscira to her other daughter Maya, born last March. Either way, it looks like the franchise will be in good hands for now. Wonder Woman 2 is set for a November 2019 release, with Gal returning as Diana Prince and Patty Jenkins as director. The first film has since grossed more than $821 million worldwide, making it the highest-grossing superhero origin film of all time (surpassing Spider-Man, Deadpool, and Guardians of the Galaxy).
Not much is known about Wonder Woman 2 for now, except that it might be set during the Cold War with Diana facing the Soviet Union. According to Jenkins, a fun cameo by the OG Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter, is also in the works. “We’ll see,” Jenkins told ET Canada. “Lynda is one of the dearest people to us, has been a great mentor and dear friend. And we actually desperately tried to get her in the first one and we had the scheduling that couldn’t work, so she’s always been a part of our Wonder Woman family. We won’t say anything yet, but we certainly—there’s no lack of trying.”
