Patty Jenkins discusses the Amazon olympics in Wonder Woman 1984

It would appear the world of Wonder Woman may be opening up a bit more, possibly even outside of movies and on out TVs.

Speaking with Empire recently, Wonder Woman 1984 director Patty Jenkins opened up a bit more about the overall plan for the Amazons past this film. While we’ve already known that the residents of Themyscira will get their own spinoff film, it seems an animated series is also being discussed.

It seems that a lot of this motivation directly stems from the Amazon Olympics that were seen in the trailer.

“What I love about the Amazon Olympics is everything that we got to really celebrate in the first movie,” said Jenkins. “Here are these people who are incredibly powerful and capable, but different in how they approach things. If you’ve been training for hundreds of years because of an impending invasion, you’re going to be constantly working on all these skill sets. So, to me, every year, they would have these Olympics to see who’s doing the best on horses or swimming the fastest, and seeing new tricks people have figured out.”

“You’re enjoying the movie you’re making and also reflecting on what could be different or better in the [real] world.” continued Jenkins. “And therefore what story you want to tell. That’s the greatest thing to me about superhero stories. You’re able to have a dialogue about what a hero would be right now. So yes, I have ideas for what I’d like to say, and Gal does too.”

No word on when or where the animated series would be shown.

Wonder Woman 1984 is scheduled to hit theaters on Oct. 2, 2020.
