CinePOP is down covering CCXP 2019 in Brazil and were able to speak with Wonder Woman 1984 director Patty Jenkins during some sort of press conference and she revealed to them that she would be helping to develop a Wonder Woman spinoff movie that would focus on the Amazons.
The fantastically powerful female warriors of the island of Themyscira.
However, she clarified that she won’t be directing and that Gal Gadot wouldn’t be starring in it. This sounds like she would act as a producer.
Below is a rough translation of the quote via Google translate.
JENKINS: “I’m working on an Amazon-focused movie. Of course, I won’t be able to [direct] and Gal shouldn’t star, but let’s show the story of these women.”
This could certainly be a prequel or take place while Diana is busy projecting the outside world, but we’ll have to wait to a little to get more details on this project and if it’ll be for HBO Max or for theatrical release.
Joker’s success could behind Warner Bros. giving filmmakers a little more wiggle-room to develop new sequels/spinoffs set in the DC universe.
Jenkins is attending CCXP alongside star Gal Gadot to promote Wonder Woman 1984 which where they’ll reveal the first trailer for the sequel and first looks at Kristen Wiig’s villainous Cheetah.
Wonder Woman 1984 was originally set to be released last month but was bumped to June 5th, 2020.
Before she was Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, Diana meets an American pilot (Chris Pine) who tells her about the massive conflict that’s raging in the outside world. Convinced that she can stop the threat, Diana leaves her home for the first time. Fighting alongside men in a war to end all wars, she finally discovers her full powers and true destiny.
