‘Wonder Woman’ Director Patty Jenkins On Future Installments

Wonder Woman WonderConIn just a few months, Warner Bros’ Wonder Woman will be hitting theaters as we learn the origin story of Diana Prince (Gal Gadot). The film will be set during World War I as Diana discovers herself as a hero while learning about Man’s World.

In a new interview with Toronto Sun, director Patty Jenkins was asked about what she would like to see for Diana in future Wonder Woman installments. Jenkins talked about how she wants to see Diana progress further into the future as she keeps evolving as a superhero.

“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.”

“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.”

    If they don’t make a 2nd WW movie in WW2 (eheheh), then WB will be missing the mark on a huge opportunity.
