Patty Jenkins Gives Us a Glimpse at 'Wonder Woman 2' Storyline

12/01/2017

There are still two years ahead for Wonder Woman 2, but it’s impossible not to feel excited about it already!

 

While Justice League may have been a disappointment for Warner Bros., and next year’s Aquaman is far from a sure thing, the studio must really be looking forward to Wonder Woman 2. As the first film was breaking box office records, Warner Bros. was already hedging their bets on a Wonder Woman sequel by bringing back star Gal Gadot and director Patty Jenkins for the film. Speaking with Variety (via Uproxx) Jenkins teased some of her broad ideas that she’s working with on the sequel:

“It’s a similar formula insofar as making a great, enjoyable fun movie but that ultimately in its third act turns some very big issues, and a very big experience that will aim to have slightly more weight and profundity than it has to have. Because that’s a formula that I really like, and I like the idea of taking somebody on a very solid, great journey but that arrives at a bigger question being answered. So it’s like that but because she is Wonder Woman and she’s here now and she’s fully developed, it’s got great fun from the start and great big superhero presence from the start, and is funny and a great love story again and a couple new unbelievable characters who I’m so excited about, who are very different than were in the last movie. I feel like it’s just the right amount the same world of Wonder Woman as the first movie while being a completely different story that tackles something very different but very similarly singular, one story.”

Following the publication of these quotes the first time, Jenkins took to Twitter to refute some fans’ speculation on the above quote, saying:

“Quite a few people, seem to be completely misunderstanding or making some pretty false assumptions based on one of many vague quotes I made about something I can’t say ANYTHING about. Just wait. ;).”

Wonder Woman 2 has already been confirmed to be set in the ’80s and possess a Cold War narrative. It will be released in cinemas on November 1, 2019.
