Wonder Woman 2 director Patty Jenkins was a guest on Variety’s “Playback” podcast and teased what fans could expect to see in her sequel.
Jenkins doesn’t want to stray too far from the formula of the first movie, but did promise more humor, another great love story, and “unbelievable” new characters.
“It’s really still going to other values of hers, and a similar formula insofar as making a great, enjoyable fun movie but that ultimately in its third act turns some very big issues, and a very big experience that will aim to have slightly more weight and profundity than it has to have. Because that’s a formula that I really like, and I like the idea of taking somebody on a very solid, great journey but that arrives at a bigger question being answered. So it’s like that but because she is Wonder Woman and she’s here now and she’s fully developed, it’s got great fun from the start and great big superhero presence from the start, and is funny and a great love story again and a couple new unbelievable characters who I’m so excited about, who are very different than were in the last movie.”
Jenkins has been working on the Wonder Woman 2 script with DC Films president Geoff Johns. The movie is expected to start shooting next summer for a November 1, 2019 release. You can take a listen to the full interview in the player below.
