With positive reactions pouring in for the first ever live-action Wonder Woman movie (in theaters June 2), we may not be too far away from the announcement of a sequel. Sure, we’ll see Gal Gadot reprise the role of Wonder Woman only a few months from now in this November’s Justice League, but fans also want the superhero with the golden lasso to have her own franchise, too. And they’re not alone!
Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins is beyond thrilled with the reactions to the film, and when Fandango spoke to her in advance of its release, the filmmaker stressed that she is ready to continue telling Diana Prince’s story. “It’s definitely something I’m very, very, very interested,” she said. “I love what we’ve created and I love the team that I worked with doing it and these actors so much that, yeah, we’re all very excited to talk about continuing forward together.”
But what might that next Wonder Woman adventure look like? Jenkins revealed that she definitely wants her to come to America, but at the same time evolve and expand her heroic reach, so to speak. “I think it’s very important that she goes on to be a very international superhero,” Jenkins said. “I can’t wait to bring her to America as well.”
One thing we were curious about was what Diana, aka Wonder Woman, was up to in the years between her World War I-set solo film and present day. Could a Wonder Woman sequel potentially explore that time period, and perhaps reveal other historic conflicts she assisted in? According to Jenkins, that seems like it might be the direction they’re heading in, assuming a sequel moves forward.
“It’s something that one will know soon,” she said. “Like, what she has been doing all of these years, but it’s definitely something I have thought a lot about.”
We’ll have more with Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins in the days leading up to the film’s June 2 release. Meanwhile, you can snag your tickets now right here at Fandango.
