It seems that lately we are starting to see a lot more information about the upcoming Warner Bros. Picture’s film Wonder Woman starring Gal Gadot and Chris Pine. Between the trailers that have been released and an amazing presentation at Wondercon, Wonder Woman is generating a lot of positive buzz around the internet.
Director Patty Jenkins could not be any more excited and proud of this film. A few years back she was in line to direct the sequel for a film in the Marvel cinematic universe, Thor: The Dark World. But it is well known that due to creative differences she left the project which was taken over by Alan Taylor. Now with Wonder Woman less than two months away ComicBook.com had the opportunity to speak with Jenkins about some her original ideas she had for Thor that she brought over to Wonder Woman.
“I mean they’re very similar in a lot of ways,” says Jenkins. “It’s a lot of the same questions and a lot of the same struggles that I was interested in Thor’s story or here, although in that case it was the second movie so it would never have been as pure and as simple for an arc so I really think it was meant to be that I ended up doing this one, which I had always wanted to do anyway. And I got to do it in a kind of bigger and purer arc rather than putting it in that other story.”
Since both Thor and Wonder Woman are heroes based off of classic mythic heroes, it makes sense to me that she is able to take some of her ideas from Thor: The Dark World to Wonder Woman, being that this is Wonder Woman’s first film she doesn’t have much holding her back creatively like a sequel would in an already established universe. Also it helps (or hurts depending who you ask) that Warner Bros. Pictures give their directors quite a bit more freedom than the folks over at Disney.
At this point I am cautiously optimistic that this film will be successful, I really hope that Patty Jenkins can do Wonder Woman justice and finally deliver a DC film in which most audiences can leave the theaters satisfied. What are your feelings so far about Wonder Woman? Chime in below!
