It’s the most successful hit of the summer and director Patty Jenkins is having her pick of A-List actors who want to be a part of WONDER WOMAN 2, but the filmmaker has hit to lock herself into the sequel!
There’s no doubt…the summer belong to Wonder Woman and especially to the film’s star Gal Gadot and the filmmaker at the helm of the blockbuster, director Patty Jenkins. Warner Bros the studio that released the adaptation of the iconic DC Comics property, that will be making her next appearance in the highly anticipated, all-ready embattled Justice League waster no time at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con event to announce that the Amazing Amazon will return!
The date for Wonder Woman 2 has already been slated for a release in 2019 and although we’ll see its star back in the centrifugal role, it’s not yet been confirmed if the franchise’s premiere director will be returning. Although a series of A-List, Oscar-Winners including Geena Davis, best known for her roles in Thelma & Louise and Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice have expressed to Jenkins that they’d like to come onboard, Patty Jenkins herself hasn’t been confirmed as its director.
“I met Patty Jenkins and I told her,” said Geena Davis, “I’m sure you’re going to make a sequel and if you need anybody — I’m available.” The statuesque Davis would certainly fit the specifications for any one of Paradise Island’s resident of warrior Amazons, but perhaps she might be considered to take on one of the many formidable adversaries in Wonder Woman’s gallery of arch-villains perhaps Circe, or even a shady ally like self-interested publicist Myndi Mayer.
Either would make for an interesting turn for Davis, but how will Wonder Woman 2 fare if the studio doesn’t lock Patty Jenkins in for the sequel? The director has revealed that she is close to signing a deal, and is fighting to secure she gets paid as comparably as any of her male counterparts. With the success of Wonder Woman resting on Jenkins talented skills, no doubt Warner Bros will want to capitalize on that and honor Jenkins as the highest paid female director ever!
