Wonder Woman is inching closer and excitement continues to build as more promotional material is being released. Along with the DC fans, director Patty Jenkins is also expressing her absolute excitement about finally releasing the icon’s first solo outing on the big screen.
Jenkins’ love for the character is so massive, that she is already discussing her ideas for a sequel. This first film is obviously exploring her origins as an Amazonian warrior while also dealing with World War I.
While speaking to the Toronto Sun, Jenkins discussed what she would like to explore in another standalone Wonder Woman film:
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.
Jenkins’ eagerness to tell more Wonder Woman stories should be exciting to comic book film fans. She is an expert storyteller as exhibited in her film Monster, where she directed Charlize Theron to an Academy Award-winning performance.

Here’s the synopsis for Wonder Woman:
Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
Directed by Patty Jenkins and starring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Lucy Davis, Saïd Taghmaoui, Ewen Bremmer and David Thewlis, Wonder Woman will finally hit theaters on June 2, 2017.

Top 10 Movie Trailers From This Summer That Will Fire You Up
Every year, an avalanche of trailers, teasers, TV spots flood the Internet, trying to grab the attention of busy and overstimulated audiences. It’s gotten to the point where now, trailers are such a commodity, that the trailers themselves have teasers. There’s a reason: trailers, when they’re good, can be an artform all their own.
I love trailers, being the guy who is always rushing his friends and family to the theater early “so we don’t miss the previews.” Every summer, I make a YouTube playlist of my favorites that acts as my own personal radio station because frankly, sometimes, I vibe more to how the trailer is cut than the music in it or, in bad cases, the movies themselves when I finally catch them on-screen. It’s gotten to the point that I imagine and dream in a trailer format, with music setting the pace for a smash-cut of scenes that I want to write or just enjoy the fantasy of.
If you love a good trailer like I love a good trailer, this list is for you. Here’s what I consider the top 10 trailers for the summer 2017. Click Next to start!
