Director Patty Jenkins is currently on a promo tour for her series I Am The Night starring Chris Pine and one of her interview stops was with BuzzFeed’s AM2DM. The subject moved to Wonder Woman 1984, while brushing-off a Steve Trevor question with “it makes perfect sense”, she mentions why she chose the 1980s for the Wonder Woman sequel.
“You know what was cool? We’re treating the era differently than I’ve seen so far, which I feel there have been a lot of interesting versions of doing the era. In our version, as a child of the ’80s myself, there was funny “haha” outfits I can’t believe I wore for sure. But there’s also incredible music, incredible art, and so I really felt like the 1980s is kind of mankind at their most extreme and at their best. It was when we could do anything we wanted and we had no idea of the price yet.”
