Patty Jenkins Is Not Currently Signed On For Wonder Woman 2








The entire DC Trinity has properly entered the DCEU, and Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman has risen to the top as the franchise's best film yet. Given the amount of fanfare associated with the movie (both critically and commercially), it would make perfect sense for fans to start wondering what Jenkins and Gal Gadot will do next in Wonder Woman 2. However, it has been revealed that Patty Jenkins is not actually confirmed for the Wonder Woman sequel yet -- which may ultimately work to her advantage.


Audiences and DC insiders alike seemingly went into Wonder Woman with tempered expectations. The DCEU was in a tight spot after three divisive films, and rumors associated with the project suggested that it was "a mess" behind the scenes. Beyond that, Patty Jenkins only had one feature film on her resume when she signed on for Diana Prince's solo movie -- leading to Warner Bros. only signing her for one film as a precautionary measure. As a result of this, while Gal Gadot has a long-term deal with Warner Bros. to continue playing Diana Price, Jenkins has not officially signed on for the Wonder Woman sequel yet. Negotiations to bring Jenkins onboard for the sequel will reportedly begin soon, but if she wanted to walk away from Wonder Woman right now, she technically could.


That said, money talks and Wonder Woman's strong opening weekend makes it clear that Patty Jenkins has a hit on her hands. Despite THR's report that Jenkins hasn't signed on for Wonder Woman 2 yet, the possibility of her not joining the sequel seems remote. Jenkins has shown a clear passion for this corner of the DC universe with her work on the first film in this franchise, and she has consistently talked about possibly story avenues that she would like to explore. She hasn't signed on the dotted line yet, but we generally expect her to do so once negotiations properly begin.


To say that Wonder Woman 2 needs Patty Jenkins would be a massive understatement. Wonder Woman is easily the most cohesive entry in the DCEU to date, and Jenkins has shown a deftness with the film's titular character I don't believe has been seen in the silver screen DC world since Christopher Nolan's work on The Dark Knight trilogy. Warner Bros. probably assumed that inking Jenkins for only one movie would be a safe bet in the short term, but the film's unanticipated critical and commercial success has officially granted her unexpected power to negotiate a considerably higher price tag for future films. That just goes to show that it pays to do a job well, no matter the expectations.


Of course, there's also plenty of room for Patty Jenkins in the DCEU beyond the Wonder Woman franchise. Fans have gravitated towards her lighter take on the DC mythos, and some properties could obviously benefit from her special touch. Man of Steel 2 and The Flash (both of which currently need directors) are the first two projects that come to mind, but the possibilities for Jenkins in this cinematic universe now seem endless.


As of right now, Patty Jenkins and Warner Bros. are riding high off of the success of the Monster director's first foray into the DCEU. If (and when) Wonder Woman 2 happens, the studio would be wise to shell out the necessary cash to lock her down. Wonder Woman is currently in theaters, so make sure to check it out!

Patty Jenkins is Co-Writing ‘Wonder Woman 2’ With Geoff Johns




While we still don’t have official confirmation that Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins is coming back to direct Warner Bros.’ Wonder Woman 2, here’s a big step in the right direction: Jenkins is co-writing the sequel’s treatment with DC Films’ co-chairman Geoff Johns. Get the latest Patty Jenkins Wonder Woman 2 details here.


In a profile of Warner Bros. president Toby Emmerich, Variety reports that Emmerich told them Jenkins is already at work on the sequel. The same outlet also sat down with DC Films co-chairmen Geoff Johns and Jon Berg to chat about the success of Wonder Woman, and when asked if Jenkins would be back to direct the sequel, Johns responded:

“Patty and I are writing the treatment right now. The goal is to make another great Wonder Woman film. I had a blast making it with Patty the first time. We’ve got a cool idea for the second one.”
Jenkins may be in the midst of negotiations right now to come back to direct the follow-up film, and because WB only signed her for the first movie, she’ll now be able to leverage the success of the sequel to get a well-deserved higher pay day for Wonder Woman 2.
As for what that “cool idea” for the new movie might be, Jenkins herself commented on that about a month ago, saying she wants to take Diana (Gal Gadot) to America and “bring her a little farther along into the future and have a fun, exciting storyline that is its own thing.” Emmerich seemed to echo the idea of Diana’s character jumping a bit further down the timeline, teasing that the sequel is set “somewhere between 1917 and 2017.” I’d heard rumors that it might be set in modern day, but Emmerich’s comment seems to hint that another period piece could be possible. I’d much rather see another film set years before Batman and Superman were wandering around, one in which Wonder Woman can lead her own story again without getting bogged down with cameos from any of her Justice League comrades.
Elsewhere in the interview, Berg admits that the DCEU’s “early films may have been too dark,” and spoke about the lessons they’ve learned from the critical failure of Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad:
There are lessons from every movie. You would be silly not to analyze how a movie was received — what went right and what went wrong on the making of a movie.

On “Suicide Squad,” the movie did incredibly well commercially. It didn’t work narratively. You had some great casting and some great characterizations, but where the story fell down was on narrative, on plot. We could do better. “Batman v. Superman” was tonally dark. People didn’t respond to that.
Well, they’re certainly saying all the right things. Could Wonder Woman‘s success actually be the turning point we hoped for in the struggling DCEU? I don’t want to get too excited yet because I’ve been burned before, but it sounds like things are definitely moving in the right direction.
Check out the full interview, which also touches on Joss Whedon’s involvement with the DCEU (“he’s a big part already”), how the pair has “a lot of plans” for their female characters moving forward and more.

WONDER WOMAN 2 Rumors Point To A 1980s Setting And The Possible Return Of Chris Pine As Steve Trevor

It was only a matter of time before rumored plot details for Warner Bros.' planned Wonder Woman sequel made their way online, and this first one relates to the film's setting and Steve Trevor's return...





Though Warner Bros. still hasn't made Wonder Woman 2 official, the massive success of Patty Jenkins' first movie means an eventual announcement is all-but guaranteed. While we wait for that, however, there's going to be the usual internet rumors springing up.

According to Screen Rant, the sequel's story will once again unfold in the past, as Diana does battle against Soviet forces in a Cold War setting. Apparently, the original production team will remain on board, with supposed confirmation that Geoff Johns is developing the script with Jenkins.

This part is easy enough to buy, but they also report that Chris Pine's Steve Trevor is set to return, which obviously doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

While the source is far from reputable (they still report on that nonsense from Reddit and 4Chan, for one), these details have been backed up by several other sites, so there might just be some truth to 'em.

Pinch of salt for the time being, and we'll be sure to update you guys if anything else comes to light.

WONDER WOMAN 2: Could This Be The Logo For The Upcoming Sequel?

Warner Bros. recently set a release date for the Wonder Woman sequel and it now appears as if an early logo design for the highly anticipated follow-up has been revealed. You can check it out here!



Bleeding Cool has spotted a new Wonder Woman logo in the Diamond Comics Distributors Previews Catalog and while the t-shirt looks like it's probably been made for Justice League, the site notes that it's listed as "Wonder Woman II Movie Symbol." Could it be that the company responsible for making a good chunk of DC Comics merchandise let that cat out of the bag a little earlier than they should have?

It's hard to say, especially as the background looks a lot like the Mother Boxes we've seen from Justice League. Unless the one held by the Amazon comes into play in Wonder Woman 2, chances are there's just been some sort of mix up but remember that Warner Bros. is fast tracking the upcoming sequel.

We'll just have to wait and see but with Wonder Woman 2 still a couple of years away, it might be a tad optimistic to assume this really does belong to that. Rumour has it that the movie is going to jump ahead to World War II or even the present day but time will tell on that front too. Gal Gadot is confirmed as returning and director Patty Jenkins is expected to take the helm of the follow-up.

WONDER WOMAN Director Patty Jenkins Now Said To Be In Final Negotiations To Helm The Sequel

Though we all pretty much figured Patty Jenkins would return to helm Wonder Woman 2 after finding so much success with the first film, we now have confirmation that an "historic" deal is on the table...





Though Warner Bros. announced at SDCC last month that a sequel to their smash-hit Wonder Woman movie was in the works with Gal Gadot back on board as Diana, we didn't get any kind of confirmation that Patty Jenkins would also return to direct.

Well, it looks like we have it now.

Deadline reports that Jenkins is in final negotiations with the studio to helm the planned sequel, and was able to leverage an historic deal that will see her earn "the same as a male director would receive after such a box office coup."

Apparently, this is what Jenkins was holding out for, which is why we didn't get an announcement at Comic-Con.

Did 'Wonder Woman' Tease the Lazarus Pit?




At one point in Patty Jenkins's Wonder Woman, Steve Trevor washes himself in the restorative waters of a Themysciran cave -- but just how restorative were they, and could they be tied to the Lazarus Pits?
It is difficult to know, and likely any connection to the Pits will not be made overt, but it seemed worth at least asking since, despite dozens of fan theories covering a wide variety of ground, we had not see anyone speculating about whether or not the springs at Themyscira could be tied to the Lazarus Pit.
While the pit does not appear to heal Steve Trevor's wounds, it appears to be some kind of mystical water from a glowing source, and Trevor himself is feeling pretty good and giggly when the film joins him in the bath.
Could that have been evidence that the bathing hole was having some kind of physiological or psychological effect on him? Or was he just enjoying moments of peace amid a lengthy and demoralizing war?
And if it was having some kind of impact on him, could that mean something more for the future of DC's movies and the mythology of Ra's al Ghul's Lazarus Pits?


Slide 1/3What is the Lazarus Pit?

In the comics, Lazarus Pits are a naturally-occuring phenomenon in the DC Universe; think of it as a natural spring with restorative powers. Very restorative. They can help cure and heal those at death's door, or keep a healthy person young seemingly indefinitely. For centuries, the pits served the purpose of prolonging the lives of Ra's al Ghul and those closest to him.
While the borderline-supernatural nature of the Pits had kept them largely absent from previously live-action incarnations of Batman and related characters, their increasingly frequent use in live action TV coupled with a DC Extended Universe in which Batman and his rogues coexist with metahumans, aliens, and other extranormal phenomena certainly suggests that using them in the DCEU is not out of the question.
A number of other characters besides Ra's al Ghul have taken a dip in the pits to be healed, including Batman. At one point, Ra's claimed that the pits could even restore those long dead, stealing the bodies of Thomas and Martha Wayne and threatening to bring them back to life. In most cases, the Lazarus Pit has a corrosive influence on the user's mental health, particularly if used over a long period of time.
Lazarus Pits are composed of a unique unknown chemical blend that bubbles up somewhere within the Earth's crust to the surface at key points on Earth, typically at the junction of ley lines. Besides the Pits themselves, there are other ways to tap the "waters" and get their benefits in the comics.
The pit has also made the jump to various other media, including animation (Batman: The Animated Series and Batman Beyond) and video games (Batman: Arkham City). After those successes, it finally made the jump to live action...

Slide 2/3In the Arrowverse

On Arrow, the pit was teased for a while before it was clearly named -- and once it was, we learned that its effects were finally starting to wear off and that Ra's al Ghul was dying.
This is why he needed an heir, a role for which he chose Oliver Queen. In the comics, he just kinda...wants one...and that "honor" goes typically to Batman.
Anyway, after Ra's there have been a number of people who were healed or revived by the Pit, most notably Thea Queen and Sara Lance. In Sara's case, she had been dead for months and after she came back, her body was essentially feral and disconnected from her soul, which John Constantine had to retrieve.
Furious at its use and despondent that her soulmate had been corrupted by her father (by extension) one last time, Ra's al Ghul's daughter Nyssa Raatko destroyed the Pits -- something that makes a lot more sense when you consider that, like Solomon Grundy, the Lazarus Pits were Batman properties used in Arrow and then returned to Gotham.

Slide 3/3Gotham and the movies

At the end of last season, the Lazarus Pit made a brief-but-important appearance on Gotham.
After being brainwashed by Ra's al Ghul, Bruce put a sword through Alfred's chest -- an action so jarring that it lifted the veil around Bruce's mind and restored him to his normal self. Alfred, who had been willing to sacrifice himself because he had faith that the "real" Bruce would eventually resurface, did not die, though: he was revived by the waters of the Pit, which Bruce used to keep him hanging on long enough to get proper medical attention.
The roots of the Pit are not particularly explored in Gotham, but of course astute fans can suss out just what happened and even absent a convoluted mythology, context within the episode tells the audience that there is something "special" or "magical" about the waters.
In addition to the Pits' regenerative uses, their power has also been used as a weapon in the comics . When Ra's al Ghul's daughter Nyssa once confronted the Injustice Society, she claimed to have a staff which channeled the power of the Pits and could therefore destroy both the undead Solomon Grundy and Gentleman Ghost. That is an interesting element to introduce on Gotham, just as Solomon Grundy is coming to the show.
The decision to bring the Lazarus Pit into Batman's story so early -- before he was even Batman -- is an odd, interesting choice, and potentially one that suggests just how significant Ra's and the Pit are considered to be in Batman's mythology.
Does that inherently mean that the Pits will appear in Matt Reeves' The Batman or other, related movies? Not as such, no. Certainly it does not guarantee any ties to the waters spotted in Wonder Woman -- but when it comes to live-action adaptations of shared-universe stories, writers and producers certainly like to give their heroes and villains shared origins.
Think of The CW's The Flash, where it seems each new season introduces an event from which all of the villains flow. Hell, even in the comics, Geoff Johns introduced the various Lantern Corps and then gave them a kind of shared origin/mythology that bound them together and attempted to explain why the rings all functioned differently.

It's Finally Official: Patty Jenkins Will Direct WONDER WOMAN 2

Some good news for the DC Extended Universe today as it's been confirmed that Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins will return to take the helm of the highly anticipated sequel. Hit the jump for details...



It's been revealed today that Patty Jenkins will indeed take the helm of the highly anticipated Wonder Woman sequel which is set to be released on December 13th, 2019. She'll co-write the movie with Geoff Johns and the filmmaker has received a significant pay increase which brings what she'll earn on part with male directors. Jenkins received $1 million for the first instalment but that's all changed.

After all, Wonder Woman has earned over $813 million worldwide and was a critical hit for Warner Bros. at a time when they desperately needed one after Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad.

Now, Jenkins looks set to earn around $9 million, the same amount Zack Snyder made after helming Man of Steel. She'll also get a considerable backend and it's fair to say that's well-deserved given what an incredible job she did with the first instalment. It's obviously still very early days for Wonder Woman 2 but we'll hopefully get some casting news early next year when pre-production kicks off properly.

WONDER WOMAN 2 Enlists THE EXPENDABLES Scribe Dave Callaham To Work On The Sequel's Script

Warner Bros. has reportedly brought in Dave Callaham (The Expendables, 2014's Godzilla) to work on the script for Wonder Woman 2 along with director Patty Jenkins and Geoff Johns. More past the jump...





We recently found out that Patty Jenkins had officially signed on to helm the sequel to her block-busting Wonder Woman movie, and now we have word on the writer Warner Bros. has hired to work with her on the story.

According to THR, The Expendables co-writer Dave Callaham has been brought in to pen the sequel's script with Jenkins and Geoff Johns, who have reportedly been working on a treatment for several months.

Apparently, Jenkins is the one that brought Callaham into the fold as the pair had already been working on an English-language adaptation of Jo Nesbo's Jackpot, which was going to be the director's next project before she committed to bringing us Diana's next big-screen adventure.

The plot of Wonder Woman 2 remains a mystery for now, but Jenkins has previously expressed interest in setting the action in Cold War America. Plus, don't be surprised if we get an invisible jet appearance!
