Warner Bros. confirms a number of confusing sequels

WONDER Woman fans rejoice because if the first movie wasn't enough for you, Warner Bros. have just announced the inevitable - the box office smash is getting a sequel.

At the Warner Bros. and DC Comics panel at the huge San Diego Comic-Con, the sequel, entitled Wonder Woman II, will reportedly see Diana fighting in the Cold War.

The sequel became an inevitability after box office numbers started rolling in - it has grossed $US770 million worldwide and was the biggest opening ever for a female director (Patty Jackson).

The Gal Gadot-led flick fast became a huge success for DC Comics and Warner Bros. whose first three releases were universally panned by critics.

The panel also announced plenty of other sequels - some of which had fans scratching their heads.

A Suicide Squad 2 is in the works, despite it receiving far from rave reviews.

Reviews aside however, the movie still grossed $US745 million worldwide, $US30 million shy of Wonder Woman.

The studio also announced Green Lantern Corps - a sequel to the commercial and critical 2011 bomb Green Lantern.

Ryan Reynolds, who starred in the film alongside his now-wife Blake Lively, probably won't be on board after regularly fessing up to Green Lantern's shortcomings over the years.

In a 2015 interview with Empire, the actor called it a "frustrating" and "slightly terrifying experience".

The studio also reconfirmed another female-led superhero flick Batgirl.

The movie will have Joss Whedon at the helm, who finished up Justice League after Zack Snyder stepped down from the movie to be with his family following his 20-year-old daughter's suicide.

Also coming out of the panel was confirmation on Flashpoint, Justice League Dark, The Batman and Shazam!

Ben Affleck, who became DC's Batman for Batman vs. Superman last year, also shut down rumours the studio were looking to replace the actor.

Concern was reportedly raised over Affleck's age - he would be in his mid-50s by the time the final Batman movie is released - and over the 2016 flick being a critical failure.
