Wonder Woman 1984 producer Charles Roven spoke with Vulture about the upcoming second installment in the movie franchise. He made a point of emphasizing that the new movie will not be a direct sequel to the 2017’s Wonder Woman.
“[Director Patty Jenkins] was just determined that this movie should be the next iteration of Wonder Woman but not a sequel. And she’s definitely delivering on that. It’s a completely different time frame and you’ll get a sense of what Diana-slash-Wonder Woman had been doing in the intervening years. But it’s a completely different story that we’re telling. Even though it’ll have a lot of the same emotional things, a lot of humor, a lot of brave action. Tugs at the heart strings as well.”
Before this, Roven has had a producer credit on Wonder Woman, Batman v Superman, Justice League, Suicide Squad, and the Dark Knight trilogy. Vulture also quoted “a source close to the director” for further comment:
“It’s a stand-alone film in the same way that Indiana Jones or Bond films are, instead of one continuous story that requires many installments.”
We’ll just have to wait until June 5, 2020 to find out for sure.
