Patty Jenkins Offers Status Update On Gal Gadot’s ‘Wonder Woman 3’

The director reveals the plot of the film will be influenced by current world issues.

Director Patty Jenkins is taking a break from working on Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman 3.

Although fans are eagerly awaiting Wonder Woman 1984, director Patty Jenkins has already begun planning Wonder Woman 3 alongside a spin-off movie revolving around the Amazons. But in the recent issue of Total Film Jenkins says she’s taken a break from working on the third film because of the ongoing pandemic. The director explained that the plot of the film was inspired by the state of the world before being affected by the coronavirus. It sounds like Wonder Woman 3 will take some inspiration from the monumental effect of the virus.

“I’ve really hit the pause button. Because the truth is, where that plotline was coming from was our state of being six months ago. And so I want to make sure that I’m totally absorbing whatever the result of this pandemic is.”

Patty Jenkins also told the publication that she’s not sure whether she’ll do the Amazon movie or Wonder Woman 3, noting the unpredictability of the world. The director mentioned that the plot of the film will stay familiar to previous plans, but it’ll definitely be impacted by the pandemic. We’ll likely learn more about the plans for Diana after Wonder Woman 1984 during DC’s virtual convention in August.

“We’re not starting to work on that movie right away. I’m hoping to do this Amazon movie before we do the third Wonder Woman. And I may not do either of them. You never know what will happen in this world, you know? But yes, I think the plotline will stay very similar, probably. But I want to make sure it’s influenced by all of this.”

Full details on the Wonder Woman 1984 plot are being kept under wraps, but the film is said to follow Gal Gadot’s Diana Prince as she comes into conflict with a formidable new adversary named Cheetah and businessman Maxwell Lord. Wonder Woman was last seen in Zack Snyder’s DC superhero team-up movie Justice League.

Directed by Patty Jenkins from a script she co-wrote with David Callaham and a treatment she developed with Geoff Johns, the film stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig, Pedro Pascal, Natasha Rothwell, Ravi Patel, Gabriella Wilde, Connie Nielson, and Robin Wright.

Wonder Woman 1984 is currently scheduled to be released in theaters on October 2nd, 2020. Stay tuned for all the latest news surrounding DC and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more exclusive video content.
