Director Patty Jenkins Talks About the Wonder Woman Film and Future Installments
With a little over a month until the first standalone Wonder Woman film, director, Patty Jenkins opens up about the film and what she would like to see in terms of the progression of Diana Prince’s character in any future films.
During an interview with the Toronto Sun, Jenkins said:
“I hope it’s a film that satisfies on every level. That’s what I’m aiming for. I want something that’s a great journey, that makes you fall in love with Wonder Woman, that has a good love story and is thrilling and exciting. That’s what I’m hoping for.”
When asked about what she would like to see in any future Wonder Woman films, Jenkins revealed:
“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.”
Since she already has an idea for the the next film, Jenkins was asked if she has any idea on the timing of a sequel, believing it shouldn’t be rushed even if the film is successful:
“No idea. These movies take a lot of time. If it’s successful, I think it would be a mistake just to try and speed it up to cash in. I don’t think that’s how great movies are made. So when it’s possible, it’ll happen.”
