Patty Jenkins Talks Wonder Woman 2 Interest & Potential Directions

We’re around a week away from the release of the hotly-anticipated Wonder Woman film. DC has had a rocky relationship with fans over the course of the past few years, and it’s because of that relationship that a lot of undue pressure is being placed on Wonder Woman, their first standalone film since this universe was officially announced (and just the second one in the universe as a whole so far). While full-on reviews have yet to be posted, initial response on social media has been very positive. If that wasn’t enough to boost your confidence, the embargo has been moved up from Wednesday of next week to Monday at 7 p.m. PST. This seems to imply that Warner Bros. has mad confidence in the final product.

Of course, with that in mind, and in this age of franchise films, you can’t shake one question: will there be a sequel? That’s the first question. The second is whether or not director Patty Jenkins would actually return to direct said sequel, should the opportunity present itself. Speaking with Fandango, Jenkins seemed to be on board with the idea.

“It’s definitely something I’m very, very, very interested,” she said. “I love what we’ve created and I love the team that I worked with doing it and these actors so much that, yeah, we’re all very excited to talk about continuing forward together.”

But where could another adventure take Wonder Woman?

“I think it’s very important that she goes on to be a very international superhero. I can’t wait to bring her to America as well.”

One interesting suggestion the outlet had had to do with having the character popping up in other historical time periods. Could she have perhaps had a hand in other big events like, say, World War II or some aspects of the Cold War? While Jenkins wasn’t specific on any time periods, it seems like that very idea may be utilized should a sequel emerge.

“It’s something that one will know soon. Like, what she has been doing all of these years, but it’s definitely something I have thought a lot about.”

This is great, but admittedly a bit disappointing. While it’s awesome that there are countless eras we could visit with her, there is only so much growth that can be done, as we will see the person she becomes in Justice League. Will this cutoff ultimately be the thing that makes her character feel boring and flat? We hope not.

Regardless, we’re excited to see what this first film brings to the table, and we hope that audiences will also find a lot to like.

Are you looking forward to a sequel, or do you think Warner Bros. needs to first wait and see how this first film turns out? Let us know your thoughts down below!
