Director Patty Jenkins has said that Wonder Woman 2, which will hit the theaters by the end of next year will be a lot different from its’ prequel, Wonder Woman.
Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman was one of the most successful films of 2017. In fact, the film did very well for DC which has not been having a good run at the box office for quite some time now.
Though Diana Prince was just seen in two films last year, Wonder Woman was undoubtedly the more successful one, both in terms of commercial performance, and critical acclaim. One would hence assume that Jenkins would follow the same path for its sequel. However, that is not the case as Jenkins has a different vision for Wonder Woman 2.
Speaking earlier this week to Entertainment Tonight at the Palm Springs Film Festival, the director said that they are treating Wonder Woman 2 as a completely different and separate film, and not as a sequel. However, Jenkins has promised fans to maintain some things that everybody has already liked from the first movie. The Wonder Woman director said:
“We’re actually making a totally different film with a lot of the same, similar like things that we love, but it’s its own movie completely, so it’s not ‘two’ to us. It’s an entirely new adventure together that we couldn’t be luckier [to do].”
Fans of Lynda Carter, who played Wonder Woman in the 1970s TV show, will be glad to know that she might be included in the sequel. “We won’t say anything yet, but we certainly — there’s no lack of trying,” said Jenkins.
Jenkins apparently tried to get Carter in the first Wonder Woman movie but was unable to make it work due to scheduling issues.
Wonder Woman 2 is set against the ’80s background and will take place during the end of the Cold War. The film is expected to hit the theaters on November 1, 2019.
