Wonder Woman is the best DCEU movie to date. While it hasn’t and probably won’t make as much money at the box office as Batman V Superman and Suicide Squad, it crushed big time in the critic’s circle. And that’s largely because of Patty Jenkins’ brilliant directorial efforts. There was one problem, though. Warner Bros previously only gave her a one-picture deal, which means she wasn’t confirmed to direct Wonder Woman 2.
However, according to Advocate, Patty Jenkins had this to say:
I had an epiphany about Wonder Woman 2. I was like, you don’t have to do this. It doesn’t have to be a foregone conclusion that you do Wonder Woman 2. But then as I was falling asleep I had an epiphany. I was like, wait a minute. You have the greatest character of all time that you love dearly, with a cast that you love sitting at the palm of your hand at this day and age — you can do whatever you want with them — are you crazy? And then I suddenly realized, it’s not more, it’s another movie. It’s its own movie. And it’s got to be great.
This is great news. With Patty Jenkins at the helm, we can definitely expect great things from the Wonder Woman sequel.
