Patty Jenkins had delivered Warner Bros their first DCEU hit in the form of Wonder Woman, and she’s signed up to do the sequel set to release in 2019. With the various settings the first movie, the film would have easily been a total mess, but Jenkins managed to pull it off. As it turns out, she’s taking measures to ensure that the same concern doesn’t happen with the sequel.
Talking to Vanity Fair, Jenkins opens up:
“I was obsessed with the tone… It was the hardest thing. Particularly because the story we were talking about could so easily skew another way with any of the chapters. You start in a fantasy world of women in costume, and then you go to real life, World War I England and then you end up in the supernatural and then you have a love story.”
To avoid this, Jenkins explained her process:
“I brought in all of my [department heads] every week. I would sit and hammer home we have to be so careful that we don’t veer from one movie to another movie, first of all, and, second, that anywhere that she walks out in a Wonder Woman suit, it just doesn’t look ridiculous.”
We don’t know exactly how the story is going to play out for Wonder Woman 2, but it has been said that the film will have Diana during the Cold War era in the 1980s. Considering that her character was pretty much incognito in Batman v Superman, I’m curious if this movie is going to see Diana put down the tiara and just live a healthy life around the humans.
Wonder Woman 2 is set for a release on Nov. 1, 2019.
