After the massive success of Wonder Woman, I think most people just assumed that director Patty Jenkins will return for the sequel, but according to the director, the decision wasn’t that easy. During a Q&A, Jenkins revealed that she will return to direct the Wonder Woman sequel. The director stated that she was undecided until a late night epiphany.
See what Jenkins said below:
“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 in 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 realised, 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—in the world, that’s fun, because now she exists, just funny, and also says something profound about the world we’re in right now.”
This might not be an official announcement, but it’s exciting to see that Patty Jenkins is at least on board to direct the sequel. Like the director said, this won’t just be a continuation of the first film but a completely new chapter of the character’s story.
