Though Wonder Woman 1984 has yet to hit cinemas, director Patty Jenkins is already being asked about her plans for a further film and beyond.
A recent interview with German magazine Geek was picked up by /Film and contains some interesting tidbits about Jenkins plans for the future. Jenkins started out by talking about the opportunities working on a sequel to her 2017 original gave her.
“[Wonder Woman 1984] gave me a chance to do a lot of things that I couldn’t accommodate in the first movie,” said Jenkins. “I was so happy to tell the Wonder Woman origin story. It was almost her birth, but we really haven’t seen what she is capable of. It is exciting for me to show her at the peak of her strength. But it is also very important that she fights an internal struggle: she is a Goddess and tries to help humanity. She is not only someone who fights evil; she tries to show bad people how to improve. It’s an interesting dilemma.”
The interview then moves on to discuss where Jenkins see’s Gal Gadot’s Diana Prince going next once her adventures in 1984 have concluded.
“The next one is probably my last Wonder Woman movie,” added Jenkins. “So I have to put everything I want to show there. We have to think carefully.”
On top of helming any potential Wonder Woman 3, Jenkins has also discussed the potential for a spin-off focussed on the Amazons of Themyscira.
Gal Gadot returns in the role of Diana Prince/Wonder Woman in Wonder Woman 1984. The film also stars Kristen Wiig in the role of the Super-Villain The Cheetah, as well as Pedro Pascal. And Chris Pine returns as Steve Trevor. The film is directed by Patty Jenkins.
Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, Zack Snyder, Patty Jenkins, Stephen Jones and Gal Gadot are producing the film. Rebecca Roven Oakley, Richard Suckle, Wesley Coller, Geoff Johns and Walter Hamada are the executive producers.
