Patty Jenkins Gives First Details for WONDER WOMAN 2 Saying it's a Funny and Great Love Story

Wonder Woman was one of my favorite movies this year. It was fun and action-packed while having serious moments. It wasn’t perfect mind you, just watch the Honest Trailer for it and it’ll point out a few problems like how there’s never redemption for my favorite character Charlie. That being said, I am excited for the sequel to come out in 2019. We don’t know much of anything about what will happen in the movie, but we have heard it reported that it will take place in the 1980’s during the Cold War and now Patty Jenkins, the director, has given us a bit more insight on Variety’s podcast Playback. In the episode, Jenkins gives us her preferred formula for these movies in this statement:

It’s really still going to other values of hers, and a similar formula insofar as making a great, enjoyable fun movie but that ultimately in its third act turns some very big issues, and a very big experience that will aim to have slightly more weight and profundity than it has to have. Because that’s a formula that I really like, and I like the idea of taking somebody on a very solid, great journey but that arrives at a bigger question being answered. So it’s like that but because she is Wonder Woman and she’s here now and she’s fully developed, it’s got great fun from the start and great big superhero presence from the start, and is funny and a great love story again and a couple new unbelievable characters who I’m so excited about, who are very different than were in the last movie.

I will say, that worked really well for the first movie. I hope it works well for the second. I do worry that she brings a love story to the forefront of everyone’s attention. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good love story. I just hope it is well balanced and doesn’t take over the film or detract from the character, which is something that unfortunately happens. I have faith that Wonder Woman 2 will be balanced, similar to its predecessor, though. Who do you think the love interest will be? Who are these “new unbelievable characters” that Jenkins is bringing in?
