Wonder Woman is one of the most anticipated films this summer. Ever since the introduction of the Goddess of Truth in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, fans have been clamoring to see more of the heroine.

In about two weeks, audiences will be able to see Wonder Woman on the big screen. Due to the overwhelming positive response, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that a sequel is already in the works. At a press event in Shanghai, China, DC Extended Universe director and producer Zack Snyder shared the news, which was later tweeted by attendee @ArthurWongDCEU:

As you can see, a sequel is confirmed, but another female-led solo film will be the next immediate priority—Batgirl. Batgirl was recently announced to be in the works, with Joss Whedon as the director, writer, and producer. The project is currently shrouded in mystery, with only small teases from Whedon in regards to casting.
