Patty Jenkins says she wants Wonder Woman 3 to be set in the modern day

January 28th, 2019 by Marc Comments

It looks like Wonder Woman and Wonder Woman 1984 director Patty Jenkins has already planned out what she’d like to do should a third instalment come along for her an star Gal Gadot.

With the first Wonder Woman set during WWI and the follow-up set in 1984, Jenkins is keen to bring the Amazon champion to the modern world ala BvS and Justice League: “I’m not set [for the movie yet], but I’m not doing another period piece.”

As much as we loved WW and are looking forward to WW84, we would like to see her in a modern setting, taking on more contemporary villains.

“It’s definitely one of the things we talked about. 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.”

The director was keen, however, to point out that she has no desire to do a team-up movie ala Justice League: “The Justice League movie, I find those movies to be extremely challenging. I think they are fantastic when they are well done,” said Jenkins.

“But taking on all of those characters at the same time in the timeline. … I sort of hope that we don’t do a Justice League movie for a little while because I’m excited to see all of their movies. I want to see Aquaman 2, I want to see Flash.”

She added: “Never say never, but I think everyone should have their moment to shine.”

In related news, actor Brandon spink who played the young Bruce Wayne was  recently asked on social media if he’d be appearing in any DC movies soon, to which he just replied with a little ‘shhhhhhhhhh’ emoji.

Now, while this likely doesn’t mean much, we were doing the math and, at age 15 in real life, if he were to be in WW84 as Bruce, that would put his birthday at 1969 and Ben Affleck was born in 1972… so we’re wondering if there’s a chance we’ll see young Bruce in the Wonder Woman sequel? Or could he be lined up to appear in Matt Reeves’ Batman movie.

Anyway… we digress. Would be cool if done right, though.

Wonder Woman 1984 opens June 5, 2020.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
