Patty Jenkins Talks “Totally Different” ‘Wonder Woman’ Sequel And Possibility of Lynda Carter Cameo
Director, Patty Jenkins, was recently in attendance at the Palm Springs Film Festival and it didn’t take long for her to be asked about the impending sequel to the critically acclaimed box office smash, Wonder Woman.
When Jenkins was was asked by Entertainment Tonight about the sequel to DCEU hit, the filmmaker told ET, “We’re actually making a totally different film with a lot of the same, similar like things that we love, but it’s its own movie completely, so it’s not ‘two’ to us. It’s an entirely new adventure together that we couldn’t be luckier [to do].”
Wonder Woman has been an adored character for years and many fans love Lynda Carter’s portrayal of Diana Prince from the Wonder Woman television series. The pilot episode premiered back in 1975 and Jenkins hopes that they can make a cameo with Carter work this time around.
When asked about the chance for a cameo featuring Carter, Jenkins said, “We’ll see. Lynda is one of the dearest people to us, has been a great mentor and dear friend. And we actually desperately tried to get her in the first one and we had the scheduling that couldn’t work, so she’s always been a part of our Wonder Woman family. We won’t say anything yet, but we certainly—there’s no lack of trying.”
