wonder woman 2

Wonder Woman is still persisting at the box office, breaking records and beating other superhero numbers, with no signs of stopping. So naturally Warner Bros. and DC Films are already looking ahead to Wonder Woman 2, though plot and crew details have remained in the dark — until now.

The sequel to Wonder Woman will reportedly be another historical adventure, trading World War I for the waning days of the Cold War. The sequel will feature the return of Gal Gadot as Diana of Themyscira, and possibly another beloved character from the first film.

Wonder Woman

Recreating the Diana Prince-led group photo from Batman v Superman in Wonder Woman wasn’t quick and simple. Because it was going to be a part of Zack Snyder‘s film, which came out four months after the new DCEU movie started production, director Patty Jenkins had to shoot the photo first. Then, when Jenkins and everybody were back together on set, they had to recreate the photo just as it was shown in Snyder’s film.

The origin of the Wonder Woman photo scene is a surprisingly interesting look at how various movies in an ongoing franchise have to operate together.

Wonder Woman‘s overwhelmingly positive reception blew away the people involved in the DC Extended Universe film.  The movie’s critical acclaim was not something that the cast and crew of Wonder Woman anticipated, nor the executives at Warner Bros., who hadn’t even settled on plans for Wonder Woman 2 yet.

But, cinematographer Matthew Jensen told us in an interview, the reception was not a complete surprise. The movie was always going to be a success because it was a solid film, he told me. But what he and other male crew members of the film could not have forseen was the emotional resonance that women found in the film, many of them crying or tearing up at the soaring battle scenes.

In our interview, Jensen detailed what went into filming those action scenes, and what he thinks sets Wonder Woman apart from the other DCEU films.

The DCEU hit its first home run with Wonder Woman, finally giving one of DC Comics’ Trinity characters her own long-awaited live-action movie. Monster director Patty Jenkins absolutely crushed it, blending fantastical worlds, Greek myths, historical fact, and a period setting into a terrific synthesis of comic book movie images that felt like a real movie instead of just a collection of sloppily edited scenes.

Jenkins has earned bragging rights because of the film’s critical reception and stellar box office returns, but the director relayed a Wonder Woman reaction to fans on Twitter yesterday that means more to her than either of those things.

wonder woman casting

Reddit board members weren’t the only ones initially on the fence about when Gal Gadot was cast as Wonder Woman. Patty Jenkins, who at the time wasn’t yet announced to direct Wonder Woman, said she almost gave up on her dreams of directing the solo female superhero film when she heard about Gadot’s casting.

But in 2015, Jenkins signed on to direct Wonder Woman, and she — and the world — were happily proven wrong by Gadot’s performance in this year’s record-shattering, critically beloved superhero blockbuster.

Patty Jenkins Directing Wonder Woman 2

After Wonder Woman had a huge opening weekend at the box office and shattered records, it was full steam ahead on all the chatter about a sequel. Director Patty Jenkins had already been vaguely discussing possible paths for a Wonder Woman sequel to take, and everyone reporting on the success of the film has been saying she’ll be back to direct again. But that’s not a done deal yet.

Don’t worry, Wonder Woman 2 is a foregone conclusion at this point, but apparently all the talk of Patty Jenkins being set to direct the sequel were misinformed. At this time, the filmmaker is not currently signed on to direct Wonder Woman 2. However, don’t get out your torches and pitchforks just yet, because she’ll be negotiating a deal to direct very soon.

Patty Jenkins

Patty Jenkins is coming off an incredible accomplishment with Wonder Woman. Its opening weekend at the box-office is the highest domestic opening for a female director, and she made a movie that’s feeling the love from just about everyone. Jenkins will direct the Wonder Woman sequel, which will supposedly bring Diana’s (Gal Gadot) story to America next, but she’s also going to work on a project for the horror streaming service Shudder, titled Riprore, in the future.

Wonder Woman No Man's Land

Wonder Woman is a full-on phenomenon, and rightly so: Patty Jenkins’ film is not just financially successful, but it’s also a hit with both critics and fans alike. Take notice, Hollywood: this is what can happen when you make a good movie.

Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman arrived last weekend and proved that every stuffy studio exec who said a female-driven superhero film wouldn’t work was full of it. Patty Jenkins’ DC Extended Universe (DCEU) debut is a box office hit, with a $103.2 million opening weekend – the highest domestic opening for a female director. But there’s more to Wonder Woman than boffo box office: it’s actually, well, wonderful – an exciting, emotional summer movie that proves the DCEU isn’t the garbage fire many were afraid it might be. Not only did the film clean up at the box office, but it also ended up with a staggering 93% “fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes, the archenemy of DCEU fans everywhere.

Any time a film of this nature is a success with critics and audiences alike, the inevitable question Hollywood asks is: what next? How does one use this success as an example and run with it? There are several lessons to take away from Wonder Woman, but the most important one may not be the most obvious. The biggest lesson to learn from Wonder Woman is that sincerity is no longer a dirty word.
