Following the overwhelming critical and commercial success of Wonder Woman last year, the officially greenlit sequel quickly became one of DC’s most anticipated movies. Returning director Patty Jenkins is intent on delivering a sequel that maintains the things that people loved about the first movie but says that Wonder Woman 2 will be a very different movie.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight at the Palm Springs Film Festival earlier this week, Jenkins briefly discussed her vision for the sequel, stating that she’s treating Wonder Woman 2 more as a totally separate film rather than just a sequel.
“We’re actually making a totally different film with a lot of the same, similar like things that we love, but it’s its own movie completely, so it’s not ‘two’ to us,” Jenkins said. “It’s an entirely new adventure together that we couldn’t be luckier [to do].”
Jenkins’ comments seem to support previous reports that Wonder Woman 2 will take place during the end of the Cold War in the 1980s, as the style and tone of such a setting would certainly represent a significant departure from the first film’s World War I time period.
While Jenkins was mum on any other significant details, she did reveal that there’s a possibility of Lynda Carter, who portrayed Wonder Woman in the 1970s TV show, making an appearance in the sequel. Jenkins actually tried to get Carter in the first movie but was unable to due to scheduling issues.
“We won’t say anything yet, but we certainly — there’s no lack of trying,” Jenkins said.
Wonder Woman 2 opens in theaters on November 1, 2019.
