The prolific composer Hans Zimmer has been confirmed to score the Wonder Woman follow-up, 1984.

This will be the first time Zimmer has returned to the DC universe after effectively ‘retiring’ from the comic book genre after Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice. He vowed never to return only to be swayed into producing the score for the troubled X-Men: Dark Phoenix which is currently undergoing reshoots.

Patty Jenkins returns to take the helm after the Super Hero’s first outing saw it take a record-breaking $822 million at the worldwide box office. Gal Gadot also returns as the titular superhero.

Joining Gal Gadot on the cast list is Kristen Wiig in the role of the Super-Villain The Cheetah, as well as Pedro Pascal who could possibly be playing Max Lord, a razor-sharp and powerful businessman who was a thorn in the side of the Justice League.  Chris Pine also returns from the dead as Steve Trevor.

Joining Jenkins behind the scenes are several members the Wonder Squad, including director of photography Matthew Jensen, Oscar-nominated production designer Aline Bonetto (“Amélie”), and Oscar-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming (“Topsy-Turvy”).  Oscar-nominated editor Richard Pearson (“United 93”) will cut the film.

Production is well underway and is taking place in Washington, D.C., Alexandria, Virginia, and in the UK, Spain and the Canary Islands. The film is set for a release on November 1st 2019.
