Patty Jenkins yet to sign up for 'Wonder Woman' sequel


Now that Gal Gadot and Chris Pine are committed to a sequel, all we can do now is continue to fight for more films like Wonder Woman, where representation and breaking of genre stereotypes can mean audience interest, and maybe even huge success.

"On close-up, I looked very much like Wonder Woman", Gadot told EW.

As Doctor Poison was still alive at the end of the movie, it's extremely possible that the villain will return for the next installment of Wonder Woman.

It's reported WB and Patty Jenkins should begin negotiations for Wonder Woman 2, which may see Jenkins also get script duties with DC co-runner Geoff Johns on the Wonder Woman sequel and potential other movies.

Wonder Woman has already smashed the box office record for a woman-directed film, but that's not the only thing that makes the film so inspirational.

While thousands of little girls dreamed of being Wonder Woman, Kim Renee got to do the next best thing.

Rosenstein says he's seen no good cause to fire special counsel Mueller
Charlie Dent called Mueller "a very distinguished man [with] impeccable credentials". "I have confidence in Bob Mueller". The comment received immediate criticism from both Democrats and Republicans.

It's just a generally good movie and Patty Jenkins has a lot to bargain with.

"The story will take place in the USA, which I think is right".

The problem for Warner Bros., though, is that they only locked in director Patty Jenkins for one film. You want to do a movie like this because you believe in it.

On "The Tonight Show", Jimmy Fallon asked Gadot her delightful story about the audition, but ended up getting a full demonstration of how they used green screen magic for some of the reshot action scenes when Gadot was five months pregnant. Wonder Woman had a $103 million opening in the USA and has since made $12 million more, bringing its domestic total to $115 million.

Sources speaking to theHollywood Reporter say WB chose to wait and see how opening weekend went before deciding to negotiate with Jenkins, and that the studio intends to begin talks soon. But what's important to me is that girls like my niece now have another story of success paving the way to their own, hopefully brighter, future.
