The DC Extended Universe didn't start out so well last year after Batman V Superman ended up being divisive and Suicide Squad got bombed with a wave of negative reviews. Though Warner Bros. didn't expect too much from Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot's first feature as Diana Prince started to turn things around, reaching milestone after milestone at the box office and winning over fans and critics.

Now, after Wonder Woman's success, fans are wondering whether director Patty Jenkins would lend a helping hand to other Hollywood franchises, say for example, one from a galaxy far, far away.

Speaking in an interview with Screenrant, Jenkins was recently asked whether she'd be interesting in directing a Star Wars movie for Lucasfilm. According to the filmmaker, it might not be a priority right now, but she wouldn't really mind developing a Star Wars movie.

"It would depend on a project, you know. I only want to make movies I understand and feel like I could do a good job at. There's no world that I – I'm not that kind of filmmaker, I think it's film by film [for me]."

Lucasfilm has taken a more progressive approach towards the Star Wars saga, and with the franchise growing stronger, it's possible that the studio could try to approach Jenkins at some point in the future. Nothing's impossible really.

The next film in the Star Wars franchise, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, is scheduled for release on December 15, 2017.
