'Wonder Woman 2' set for 2019 release date
Fans of Wonder Woman will get a sequel, but will have to wait until December, 2019 to get it.

Warner Bros. Studio spokesman Jack Horner announced that Wonder Woman 2 will be released on Dec. 13, 2019 with actress Gal Gadot returning in the starring role.

Wonder Woman has been one of the biggest hits of 2017, grossing $780 million worldwide, including nearly $400 million in U.S. ticket sales, according to Box Office Mojo.

The comic book movie has also impressed critics, who have been tough on superhero movies of late, with a 92 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

But fans will get an opportunity to see Gadot as Wonder Woman before the sequel comes out. The Israeli model-turned-movie star will next appear as Wonder Woman in Justice League, co-starring Ben Affleck, which is expected to hit theaters on November 17.


'Lady Blue Eyes' Barbara Sinatra dead at 90
Barbara Sinatra died at her home in California at the age of 90 after months of declining health on Tuesday morning.

Sinatra, also known as "Lady Blue Eyes," was a former Las Vegas showgirl, the final wife of the late singer Frank Sinatra. She built a foundation to help abused children at Eisenhower Medical Center.

Jamie Kabler, a longtime family friend of Sinatra, told USA Today a funeral will be held on August 1.

"She died comfortably surrounded by family and friends at her home," Children's Center Director John Thoresen said.

She married Frank Sinatra in 1976 when he was 61 and she was 49 and the couple were married for 22 years until he passed away in 1998.

Sinatra used her husband's fundraising prowess to found the Barbara Sinatra Children's Center, which a spokesperson said has allowed thousands of children to benefit from therapy.

"Barbara started raising funds for it in 1985 with Frank's support," Thoresen said. "It opened in 1986 and since that time, over 20,000 children have received beneficial therapy here. There are several child advocacy centers like it around the country, [but] this one is probably most recognized."

Sinatra is survived by her son Oliver Marx and granddaughter Carina Blakeley Marx.
