Patty Jenkins says Wonder Woman 3 might be her last one
In a recent interview with German Magazine Geek (via @DCMovieNews2), Wonder Woman 1984 director Patty Jenkins had addressed the possibility of a third installment to her Gal Gadot-led DC movie. She revealed that if Warner Bros. Pictures would again give her the opportunity, Wonder Woman 3 might potentially be her last Diana Prince movie that she’ll get to direct.
“[Wonder Woman 1984] gave me a chance to do a lot of things that I couldn’t accommodate in the first movie.” Jenkins said. “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 next one is probably my last Wonder Woman movie,” She continued, “so I have to put everything I want to show there. We have to think carefully.”
Fast forward to the 1980s as Wonder Woman’s next big-screen adventure finds her facing an all-new foe: The Cheetah. As previously announced, the film stars Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Kristen Wiig in the role of the Super-Villain The Cheetah, as well as Pedro Pascal. Chris Pine also returns as Steve Trevor.
Patty Jenkins (Wonder Woman, Monster) returns to direct the sequel, while Jenkins, Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, Zack Snyder, 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.
