Patty Jenkins is getting ready to release WW84 to the world and it loos like she was offered a Justice League movie, but turned it down. Premiere has released an interview with the director in which she tells the magazine that Warner Bros. did indeed offer her a Justice League film to direct but that task of bringing different superheroes together for a team-up film isn’t something that resonates with her. Although the French magazine isn’t available here in the United States, an Instagram user has translated some of the quotes from the interview with Jenkins.
“I really like the people who work there, but they want full control over their movies. The director is under control. Yes, it can happen. Furthermore, It shows immediately if a director cannot impose his/her vision. When this is the case, I get the impression that these people are doing a different job than me. But with Wonder Woman 1984, I think I did exactly what I wanted. And then, everything a superhero movie needs comes naturally to me: I love shooting great action scenes versus great sets. I really enjoy it.”
“I love comics, but I’ve come to superheroes through films. There is in me this desire to emulate compared to the movies I saw as a child. A certain spirit that reigned in those times. Is that relevant when I shoot? I don’t know. The point is, unlike other directors, I don’t really care about shared universes, continuity, and that kind of detail. I’ve been contacted to make a Justice League movie in the past, and it doesn’t connect to me. Too many characters.”
