With the first “Wonder Woman” film less than five weeks away, the film’s director, Patty Jenkins, is thinking ahead and already has a sequel idea for the Amazonian Warrior’s next standalone adventure.
“I’m excited for her to come to America and become the Wonder Woman we are all familiar with from having grown up around her as an American superhero,” Jenkins told the Toronto Sun. “I’d like to bring her a little farther along into the future and have a fun, exciting storyline that is its own thing. Wonder Woman 1 is so much about her becoming the person she is. I can’t wait to spring forward with who she is and have another great standalone superhero film.”
Individuals with knowledge of the film tell TheWrap that a major increase in visible “Wonder Woman” marketing is coming starting in May, just after Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” hits U.S. theaters and its marketing campaign wanes somewhat.
Gal Gadot made her first appearance as Wonder Woman in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” which debuted to $166 million in March 2016.
The first standalone “Wonder Woman,” from director Patty Jenkins, also stars Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, David Thewlis, Elena Anaya, Lucy Davis and Danny Huston. The film is written by Allan Heinberg and Geoff Johns from a story by Heinberg and Zack Snyder.
“Wonder Woman” will be released in theaters on June 2, 2017.
