Director Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman is one of the DCEU’s most successful movies to date, both critically and financially, with the comic book movie having recently passed the $800 million mark. It comes as no surprise, then, that Warner Bros. has greenlighted a sequel to the Amazonian princess’ first solo outing, starring Gal Gadot as Diana of Themyscira.
But despite the film’s triumph, would Patty Jenkins have done anything differently?
In a recent roundtable interview with ScreenRant, Jenkins opened up about what she would change about the movie. Seems there was a solo epilogue with Etta Candy that ended up on the cutting-room floor but will be included in the film’s home-video release, so that’s one difference. What else? Here's what she said:
“No. I mean, yes, there’s a million little things. If I had my druthers, the movie would be longer with little tiny jokes and moments that were hard to lose. Particularly because the great thing about these actors is you have such talented funny capable people, so that was already great material for them to work from. ... So it’s really hard to cut a movie like that down, and so just that sort of stuff — details.”
So Patty Jenkins wouldn’t have changed anything major from Wonder Woman, besides adding more of those small, lighter moments. Jenkins is reportedly on track to make history as the highest-paid female director in Hollywood for the sequel (rumored to be set in the 1980s), and should everything come together, she'll certainly be able to do just that in Wonder Woman 2, which is slated for a Dec. 13, 2019, release.
