Patty Jenkins confirms that she’s looking to leave more time between Wonder Woman 1984 and the next movie in the series.
Director Patty Jenkins has been chatting about the Wonder Woman series of movies, following the release of the trailer to Wonder Woman 1984 that landed over the weekend. Whilst the sequel is following the original film by three years, it was actually made pretty much directly after the first film. The reason for its later release date is a studio shuffling of its movies, that moved the film to summer 2020, rather than winter 2019.
Jenkins has been chatting then about Wonder Woman 3, a film to which she’s attached and the story has been mapped out for. She also revealed that there are plans for an Amazon spin-off movie as well. But cautioned that there’s going to be a longer gap between the second and third films than we’ve had between the first and second.
“I think what we don’t want to do is do it back to back”, she told Collider. “It’s been great doing these two movies back to back, but I think it’s important to give it a little rest in between. And I like doing other things in between. And Gal [Gadot] has other things to do”.
She added that “I never want to make decisions too far in advance. We have to see if we both feel like making the movie we think we want to make when the moment comes”. She confirmed too that the gap will be longer than the two years in which she’s turned Wonder Woman 1984 around.
Wonder Woman 3 nonetheless feels like a formality of a greenlight for Warner Bros to give. Wonder Woman 1984 is due in cinemas on June 5th 2020.
