Patty Jenkins: Wonder Woman Sequel Is Not Just Wonder Woman ‘2’

Wonder Woman was undoubtedly the first success for the DCEU, and director Patty Jenkins is onboard to direct the sequel. Despite the success of WW for being a classic superhero origins movie, Jenkins comments on the sequel and how it's a totally different animal compared to the first movie.

Talking to ET, Jenkins explains:

"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 ‘2' to us. It's an entirely new adventure together that we couldn't be luckier [to do]."

We don't know the specifics of the story, but it has been revealed that the film will take place during the Cold War era, with Jenkins saying that she wanted to bring Diana into America. Seeing that there'll be a huge time jump, I'm expecting no one from the old cast to return except Gadot, but it's possible we could see some old photographs or maybe an older person playing a younger character from the first film—perhaps an older Etta Candy? It would be funny if Etta got a granddaughter who looked just like her and still ended up as an assistant for Diana.

With Wonder Woman being such a huge hit for Warner Bros, it's possible that the studio wants the follow-up to be as good as it can get. After their misfire with Justice League, there's nowhere to go but up for the DC Cinematic Universe.

The Wonder Woman sequel is set to come out Nov. 1, 2019.
