Patty Jenkins Confirms She Will Direct WONDER WOMAN Sequel
Wonder Woman has already made a lasting impression and is one of this summer's biggest blockbusters. Much of the credit of the film's success goes to director Patty Jenkins, who has just officially confirmed that she will be directing the Wonder Woman sequel! Jenkins made the announcement during a Q&A at a "Women in Film screening of Wonder Woman. Joblo.com shares what she had to say:
"I had an epiphany about Wonder Woman 2...I was like, you don't have to do this. It doesn't have to be a foregone conclusion that you do Wonder Woman 2. But then as I was falling asleep I had an epiphany. I was like, Wait a minute. You have the greatest character of all time that you love dearly, with a cast that you love sitting at the palm of your hand at this day and age — you can do whatever you want with them — are you crazy? And then I suddenly realized, it's not more, it's another movie. It's its own movie. And it's got to be great.
"It's a continuation of the same character, but there's a great, entirely different story to be told... With this character in our world, that's fun, because now she exists, just funny, and also says something profound about the world we're in right now."
This is pretty great news, she makes it sound like Wonder Woman will return in a modern world when she refers to Wonder Woman being "in our world." So there will be more opportunities for her to cross paths with the other "metahumans." What would you guys like to see Wonder Woman do in the sequel?
