The Amazonian Princess has conquered the box office in Wonder Woman starring Gal Gadot. The Lasso of truth is not required to see this film for what it is: A cinematic masterstroke of global proportion. In its first three weeks, the film, directed by Patty Jenkins, has won over international audiences and scored 92% on The Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer, making it the best reviewed DCEU film to date. A sequel is currently on the fast track and to ensure success, DC Comics Publisher Geoff Johns – the writer credited for successfully reviving the silver age Flash and Green Lantern and for countless critically-acclaimed stories such as Sinestro Corps War, Blackest Night, Brightest Day, and Flashpoint – has joined Jenkins in penning the treatment.
During an interview with Jon Jenkins, Geoff avoided the question as to Patty would return to direct despite her successful trial by fire, but did confirm the collaboration. “Patty and I are writing the treatment right now, “ he said. “The goal is to make another great Wonder Woman film. I had a blast making it with Patty the first time. We’ve got a cool idea for the second one.” What makes this collaboration a more perfect fit is that Jenkins drew heavily from Richard Donner’s iconic 1978’s Superman: The Movie starring the late Christopher Reeve. Johns, himself, not only interned for Donner, but collaborated with him on two Superman stories revolving around Bizarro World and what’s become the definitive General Zod. Johns would not elaborate on what his “cool idea” is. Be it another period piece or a modern day adventure, fans of both the comic and film can rest easy knowing that this team will bring another wondrous visual display to the big screen. Hola!
