With the release of the latest Wonder Woman 1984 trailer, there is a huge buzz regarding the movie. It also arose the question of whether there will be one more sequel to the super-hit franchise or not. But it’s a bit too soon to ask that, given the movie hasn’t even been to the theatres yet.
Patty Jenkins, the director of the Wonder Women, has talked about how the cast and the crew have not made the sequel to Wonder Woman just for the sake of it. She did say that it is important to realize that those motivating factors absolutely help form whatever movie gets put out after the script-writing process concludes.
Jenkins told Collider that fans might not want to look too far ahead just yet.
“We actually already know the whole story, and some because it was an Amazon movie as well, so we already have it all mapped out. It’s just a matter of will we change our minds, and when I think what we don’t want to do is do it back-to-back. It’s been great doing these two movies back-to-back. But I think it’s important to give it a little rest in between and I like doing other things in between, and Gal has other things to do. I never want to make decisions too far in advance. We have to see if we both feel like making the movie. We think we want to make when the moment comes.”
Then the question arises, why the 1980s? What makes that particular time period so important for the movie? It turns out that the decade provides a wealth of material to work with, Jenkins told a panel at Brazil Comic-Con.
“Why, 1984?” Jenkins explains. “We wanted to bring Diana into the modern world, but the ’80s is a period that Wonder Woman is quite synonymous with. So it was great to see her there, but most importantly, it’s sort of the height of Western civilization and the success of the world that we all live in the aftermath of now. So I was curious to collide our Wonder Woman into the height of our current modern belief system, and what kind of villains come out of that, and see what happens. So it all came quite naturally.”
