‘Wonder Woman’ continues to tear it up at the box office, ruling the roost for a second consecutive week and holding off newcomer ‘The Mummy‘ in order to do so. It’s clear that director Patty Jenkins and her team have given the DC Extended Universe its first major hit, in terms of both financial and critical influx. So, the obvious question now becomes: what’s next?
For the DCEU, that answer is easy: ‘Justice League’ hits theaters this November, featuring not only Wonder Woman’s return but also that of Batman, Superman, Aquaman, The Flash, and Cyborg. For Jenkins, the path is a little hazier. While Jenkins has spoken about a ‘Wonder Woman 2’ at length during the recent press junket, the deal has not officially been inked between her and Warner Brothers.
Asked during a recent Reddit AMA if she would be interested in directing another DC film starring a different superhero, Jenkins said:
“It’s no secret that I love Superman but right now I’m just happy doing Wonder Woman.”
Jenkins has also made it clear that she is ready and willing to come back and helm a further film about Diana. In a recent interview with EW, she had this to say about a potential sequel:
“I’m not a big obligation person when it comes to art. You want to do a movie like this because you believe in it. Then I had this revelation in the middle of the night: this is your dream cast, you’ve created a character that you love and you can say anything you want in the world right now. I realized that ‘Wonder Woman 2′ [would be] its own great movie. I made ‘Wonder Woman.’ Now I want to make ‘Wonder Woman 2.’ It’s a beautiful story to tell, an important time to tell it and with people that I love.”
According to both IMDB and Wikipedia, Jenkins isn’t attached to any projects currently in production or pre-production.
‘Wonder Woman’ is out in US theaters now; ‘Justice League’ hits American cinemas on November 17, 2017.
