‘Wonder Woman’ bonus scene was added by Patty Jenkins during reshoots

Wonder Woman is available to purchase on Digital HD today, and as part of the special features a brand new bonus scene is included.

Lucy Davis, who plays Etta Candy and is the star of the new Wonder Woman scene, revealed on Twitter that it was directed by Patty Jenkins during reshoots last year.

“It was conceived after we wrapped,” Jenkins told Yahoo. “There were no cut scenes in the movie, basically, which I’m very happy about, because you can’t always do that. I’m very hard on the script before we go in, and you’re always hoping for that — that you’re not wasting your precious days. We got lucky on this one, that that was the case. And every single one of us wished that Etta was in every scene, as well as the team. We were like, ‘Can we just put them in everything?’ They were just so great!

“So [the epilogue] was kind of a shared delight,” Jenkins said. “We started to have these incredible materials that started to come together on the documentary side, but we also loved the idea of having another scene and some other things, and bringing back some of our favorite characters and getting to mess around with them some more. So it just came very naturally … the idea of getting to see her and the team making the plan for the future was pretty exciting.”

If you haven’t seen it yet, Yahoo has more details on  the bonus scene titled “Epilogue: Etta’s Mission”. It hints at a future top-secret assignment for Lucy Davis’s Etta Candy and Steve Trevor’s stout military crew — Saïd Taghmaoui’s Sameer, Ewen Bremner’s Charlie, and Eugene Brave Rock’s Chief Napi. Revolving around a mysterious artifact that must be recovered before it falls into the hands of villainous forces, it’s a brief, tantalizing coda that suggests further exploits for the heroes of director Patty Jenkins’s film.
