We haven't seen the last of Gal Gadot. A sequel to Patty Jenkins' "Wonder Woman," the record-breaking superhero film, is in the works, CNN reported on Saturday.

And Warner Bros. confirmed Tuesday that the sequel will be released on December 13, 2019.

Warner Bros. and DC Comics had announced the follow-up at the Comic-Con in San Diego, attended by none other than the now world-famous Israeli actor.

Gadot's appearance at the convention caused major uproar, with the Los Angeles Times reporting that the crowd was "losing its mind" at the sight of Wonder Woman herself. 

Videos circulating on social media showed masses of hysterical fans attempting to get a glimpse of Gadot.

The Israeli actor, who became a household name after playing the lead role in "Wonder Woman," reached the No. 1 spot on The Hollywood Reporter's Top Actors chart last month.

The chart is the movie trade paper's ranking of the most popular actors on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, as well as YouTube and Google Plus.

Gadot's rise to first place coincided with "Wonder Woman" surpassing $600 million at the box office worldwide, making it the sixth-highest grossing film of 2017.

The film made headlines earlier this summer when it broke the records for biggest single day and opening weekend gross for a female-directed movie.
