Wonder Woman 1984 has barely wrapped production, but that doesn’t mean that Patty Jenkins hasn’t around started thinking about a potential third film.
Patty Jenkins sat down with Vanity Fair to discuss her new TV project, I am the Night – which happens to star Chris Pine – and the talk inevitably turned to her future projects. Chief among them is a love story set in New York City where Jenkins worked as a waitress for years. The other, of course, is where she sees Wonder Woman going.
“I have pretty clear plans for Wonder Woman 3,” said Jenkins. “Whether I [direct] it or not, I see how her arc should end in my incarnation of Wonder Woman. I have great passion for that.”
There is still a pretty large gap in the life of Diana from the 1984 setting of the second film until you see her appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Seeing how she seemed to be an unknown factor when she showed up at the fight with Doomsday, our guess would be that she stopped being active somewhere in the 1990s to account for how long Ben Affleck’s Batman had been protecting Gotham.
Wonder Woman 1984 doesn’t hit theaters until June 5, 2020, so we have some time before any talk of a third Wonder Woman film really kicks up, but it’s good to see that at least Jenkins already has some sort of plan. Now we just have to see if Warner Bros. invites her back.
