Wonder Woman’s director clarifies whether there is a potential love story for Gal Gadot’s DC superhero in the next installment. Beyond the return of director Patty Jenkins and Gadot, little is known or confirmed about the “Wonder Woman” sequel beyond its targeted November 2019 arrival.
Jenkins spoke to Variety about some of the ideas that she has been working with on the sequel:
“It’s 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.
I feel like it’s just the right amount the same world of Wonder Woman as the first movie while being a completely different story that tackles something very different but very similarly singular, one story.”
While Justice League may have been a disappointment for Warner Bros., and next year’s Aquaman is far from a sure thing, the studio must really be looking forward to Wonder Woman 2. This summer’s Wonder Woman is the only unqualified success story for the DC universe at the moment.
Some bristled at the idea that Wonder Woman needs a love story in the first place, while others lobbied for Jenkins to cast a woman as Prince’s love interest this time. In the wake of that quote, fan speculation ran rampant over the film’s romance angle and tone, and Jenkins popped up on Twitter to refute much of the speculation:
“Quite a few people, seem to be completely misunderstanding or making some pretty false assumptions based on one of many vague quotes I made about something I can’t say ANYTHING about. Just wait. ;).”
