“We left our partnership on Monster planning on doing many more things together, and we had such a great experience; I can’t wait to work with her again and I’m sure we will,” Jenkins promises.
Before that can happen, Jenkins is reuniting with Wonder Woman star Chris Pine on the TNT miniseries One Day She’ll Darken -- one of many projects she hopes that will allow her to continue working with her recent stars -- and is reportedly negotiating a return to the Wonder Woman franchise to helm the sequel.
Details are scarce about the highly anticipated sequel that Jenkins is working on with producer Geoff Johns, who oversees the DC Universe for Warner Bros, but the director did share what she hopes to explore the second time around.
“The greatest thing about making this movie was the fact that you’re really building to the Wonder Woman that we all love, but not until the end of the movie,” Jenkins reflects. “The most exciting thing about [the sequel] is literally seeing her loose in the world now, living those classic stories.
“Here’s Wonder Woman, and what can she do?” Jenkins adds. “It should be a totally different movie, but a grand and now full-blown Wonder Woman in the world.”
Wonder Woman will be released digitally on Aug. 29, with physical copies to follow on Sept. 19. The sequel is set to hit theaters on Dec. 13, 2019.
