The other day, Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins revealed during a pre-presentation press conference at CCXP 2019 that that is developing/producing an Amazon spinoff film and it sounds like she’s now reiterating that news along with suggesting they might take a break between Wonder Woman 1984 and Wonder Woman 3.
Deadline posted some quotes from Jenkins about having the future of Wonder Woman stuff mapped-out and also making sure they take a break given before tackling any future sequels/spinoffs including her Amazon spinoff movie.
JENKINS: “We already have it all mapped out — it’s just a matter of will we change our minds and when.”
“I think what we don’t want to do is do it back to back. It’s been great doing these two movies back to back, but I think it’s important to give it a little rest in between — and I like doing other things in between. And Gal has other things to do. I never want to make decisions too far in advance. We have to see if we both feel like making the movie we think we want to make when the moment comes.”
Taking a bit of hiatus between films doesn’t sound a bad idea given that rushing sequels has been an issue that even Marvel Studios has made mistakes with.
The studio looking to potential create multiple films set in the Wonder Woman universe speaks volumes and they’ll have to be careful to make sure the projects are well executed.
One of the original rumblings concerning Wonder Woman was that the first two movies would be period pieces (World War I and Cold War settings back that up) with Wonder Woman 3 thrusting Diana into a modern-day setting with her third standalone adventure.
Wonder Woman 1984 will be released on June 5th, 2020.
Fast forward to the 1980s as Wonder Woman’s next big-screen adventure finds her facing two all-new foes: Max Lord and The Cheetah. With director Patty Jenkins back at the helm and Gal Gadot returning in the title role, “Wonder Woman 1984” is Warner Bros. Pictures’ follow up to the DC Super Hero’s first outing, 2017’s record-breaking “Wonder Woman,” which took in $822 million at the worldwide box office. The film also stars Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Kristen Wiig as The Cheetah, Pedro Pascal as Max Lord, Robin Wright as Antiope, and Connie Nielsen as Hippolyta.
