If you can believe it, we’re only a little over a month away from the release of Wonder Woman, the fourth film in the DC Extended Universe. Fans have been waiting for a good while for the character to get her own standalone film, and given the split reception of the first three films in this universe so far, it has a lot of ground to make up for. That being said, all the marketing for Wonder Woman so far has felt promising. The filmmaking and casting looks pretty strong, and so long as it delivers on its promise, we may be in for a treat.
But, of course, as a film approaches, all the focus tends to shift to what’s coming along down the road. Wonder Woman is no exception. Speaking with the Toronto Sun, Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins discussed what she’d like to see for the character going forward.
“I’m excited for her to come to America and become the Wonder Woman we are all familiar with from having grown up around her as an American superhero. I’d like to bring her a little farther along into the future and have a fun, exciting storyline that is its own thing. Wonder Woman 1 is so much about her becoming the person she is. I can’t wait to spring forward with who she is and have another great standalone superhero film.”
Of course, if you think about it, her hanging around Metropolis in Batman v Superman certainly qualifies as America, but as far as having a solo adventure, her point is definitely taken. The subject then switched to other films in the DC Extended Universe. Early on in the franchise’s history, there was a concern that all the films would have the same kind of tone, but in the year or so since then, Warner Bros seemed adamant on assuring fans that their films would have varied tones and styles. Jenkins reaffirmed that strategy in her comments to the outlet.
“I think there’s a lot of directors doing cool things. I know the storylines for a lot of the films they are working on and they are all vastly different, with very different tones and very different styles of storytelling. ... Jason (Momoa) is off to shoot Aquaman right now and that’s such a cool story. It’s got its own separate vibe. I’m excited to see each of these films.”
