WONDER WOMAN 2 Director Patty Jenkins Reveals What She's Hoping To Avoid In The Sequel

Wonder Woman 2 director Patty Jenkins talks here about struggling with the tone of the first movie and what she hopes to avoid as she continues working on the highly anticipated follow-up. Check it out!

Heading into this year's Oscars ceremony, there's a lot of buzz surrounding Wonder Woman and the possibility it could receive a nomination from voters. It's entirely feasible in a year when there really haven't been that many awards worthy movies but director Patty Jenkins isn't thinking about that right now; she's hard at work on developing Wonder Woman 2 ahead of its release next November. 

Apparently, her plan is to once again find a mixture of heroism and humour as that played such a big role in helping the first instalment succeed. "I was obsessed with the tone," she explains. "It was the hardest thing. Particularly because the story we were talking about could so easily skew another way with any of the chapters. You start in a fantasy world of women in costume, and then you go to real life, World War I England and then you end up in the supernatural and then you have a love story."

Asked how she dealt with that the first time around and her hopes for the upcoming sequel, Jenkins added: "I brought in all of my [department heads] every week. I would sit and hammer home we have to be so careful that we don’t veer from one movie to another movie, first of all, and, second, that anywhere that she walks out in a Wonder Woman suit, it just doesn’t look ridiculous."

So, it definitely sounds like we shouldn't expect Wonder Woman 2 to veer too far from what's come before but it will be interesting seeing what Jenkins does to ensure it still feels fresh and not a retread of the first movie (which is a very real risk if the filmmaker chooses a WWII or Cold War setting).
