After the success of the Wonder Woman franchise, Patty Jenkins is all set for the third installment. Even though the director initially was unsure about Wonder Woman 3, production is reportedly said to commence in 2023. Although, there haven’t been many updates surrounding Wonder Woman 3, lead actor Gal Gadot stated that she and Patty Jenkins have been in back-and-forth discussions about the future of the movie. Now finally, fans have received some news in favor of the threequel.
Patty Jenkins Finished Writing the Final Scene for Wonder Woman 3
Director Patty Jenkins recently spoke as a guest at the Matera Film Festival where she let fans in on an exciting secret. She revealed that she had already written the finale of Wonder Woman 3 and is waiting to see what happens next with Diana, the Princess of the Amazons.
To say when the movie will be released is a long shot in the dark. However, given that the production of Wonder Woman 1984 went on for about six months, it’s safe to presume a similar time span for the third movie as well. It is quite possible that the movie might see the light of day with a late 2024 or early 2025 release.
With Wonder Woman 1984 not quite living up to the expectations of critics and fans alike, especially after the huge success of Wonder Woman, the pressure is now on Patty Jenkins to deliver a movie that brings the audience back into the cinema for Wonder Woman.
Future of Wonder Woman
Patty Jenkins revealed that she finds inspiring people with her work “so powerful,” adding that she completely believes in Wonder Woman and that she is hooked on the character.
“I believe in Wonder Woman and I found it so powerful to make something where you can try to not only inspire [yourself] to be better through it but also try to help to be one of the people modeling that for myself and for others through this metaphor. And so I see myself hooked.”
She talked about how Warner Bros. also asked her to think of ways to do more with Gal Gadot’s character. She says that even though it was supposed to be a three-movie arc, she is interested to see what comes next for the character.
“I say, ‘That’s it’s because I always plan a three-movie arc. There is a story that goes through these three different movies as a whole. But even now, I just wrote last week the final scene of Wonder Woman 3 and I thought, I might be interested to see what happens next. So you’ll never know. They have asked us to think of ways to do more and it accidentally happens. But you’ll never know. I have a lot of other films that I’m excited to do as well. And I love Gal Gadot so that makes it better too.”
This request from Warner Bros. might mean that Wonder Woman fans have more to look forward to when it comes to the Amazon Princess. It is exciting to think about where Wonder Woman’s story goes next.
Wonder Woman 1984 is streaming on HBO Max.
