We’re yet to see how ‘Wonder Women’ director, Patty Jenkins has followed up the phenomenal success of her 2017 DC outing, but Jenkins has hinted at a more contemporary setting for a possible third offering for the Amazonian superhero.
During a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter Jenkins was quick to mention that, as yet, she is not committed to a third film but if she was to return she wasn’t keen to do another period piece. The setting would definitely be set in the present day.
“I’m not set, but I’m not dying to do another period piece. I’m not planning to put it in the past again, because where are you going to go? You have to go forward. It’s definitely a contemporary story. That’s all I can say. Where we put it and how that gets figured out, I haven’t totally nailed down.”
Jenkins has also stated, if a third was to come to fruition, Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor would not be making a return.
“I think Steve’s done. I think Steve’s done his bit. I wish them all the luck in the world.”
The sequel to the 2017 hit, ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ is, well… set in 1984 and will see Steve Trevor come back from the dead in some capacity. Gal Gadot returns as Diane Prince aka Wonder Woman. Kristen Wiig joins the cast in the role of the Super-Villain The Cheetah, as well as Pedro Pascal who could possibly be playing Max Lord, a razor-sharp and powerful businessman who was a thorn in the side of the Justice League.
Wonder Woman 1984 is set for a November 2019 release.
