Patty Jenkins Dismisses Rumors Claiming ‘Wonder Woman’ Is ‘A Mess’

Yesterday, Pajiba released an eye-opening open letter from a former Warner Bros. employee to current chairman Kevin Tsujihara. The author, under the Big Trouble in Little China-inspired pseudonym Gracie Law (which earns some solid respect in this writer’s book), claimed next year’s Wonder Woman is “a mess,” among other things, and believes the company is doomed to repeat its most recent failures, as seen very evidentially in last weekend’s Suicide Squad.

Speculation continues to run wild, and while we’ll know next year whether or not such bold notions are true, one authoritative figure is putting her foot down on the matter: Patty Jenkins, the director of Wonder Woman herself. She hit to Twitter to clear some air, and hopefully set the record straight from her perspective.

In a series of tweets, Jenkins slammed Law’s piece and the acquisitions that her blockbuster is doomed to failure. She said it was all “made up bs,” that was “entirely” and “totally false,” and assured DC fans that they have nothing to worry about with the impending June 2, 2017 release.

Here are the tweets:

Like Jenkins said, time will be “real lasso of truth” in this situation. Granted, there’s no reason why Jenkins would admit Wonder Woman is having problems, unless she wanted to pull a Josh Trank. That said, Jenkins is an honest, upfront person on her social media. But there’s always a chance she’s trying to save face on her multi-million blockbuster. Then again, if these claims are false and her movie is unjustly getting tarnished and warped by the media, then she is doing her film justice (no pun intended) and setting the record straight.

With nearly a full year before the new movie hits theaters, anything’s possible. We won’t know for sure if the film is a failure or a hit until then. But we do know that the first trailer was pretty epic, and that’s at least reassuring to Wonder Woman‘s overall quality at the moment. Let’s just hope it turns out better than Suicide Squad. I know that’s not a high bar or anything, but what are we without hope, right?

Here’s Law’s full claim against Jenkin’s film:

What are you even doing? I wish to God you were forced to live out of a car until you made a #1 movie of the year. Maybe Wonder Woman wouldn’t be such a mess. Don’t try to hide behind the great trailer. People inside are already confirming it’s another mess. It is almost impressive how you keep rewarding the same producers and executives for making the same mistakes, over and over.
