June 5 (UPI) — Filmmaker Patty Jenkins has plans in mind for a sequel to Wonder Woman, which recently topped the North American box office with $105.5 million.
“The story will take place in the U.S., which I think is right,” Jenkins said of what to expect in a sequel while speaking with Entertainment Weekly. “She’s Wonder Woman. She’s got to come to America. It’s time.”
“I’m not a big obligation person when it comes to art. You want to do a movie like this because you believe in it,” she continued. “Then I had this revelation in the middle of the night: this is your dream cast, you’ve created a character that you love and you can say anything you want in the world right now.”
“Then I realized that Wonder Woman 2 is its own great movie. I made Wonder Woman. Now I want to make Wonder Woman 2. It’s a beautiful story to tell, an important time to tell it and with people that I love,” Jenkins added.
Warner Bros. has yet to officially announce a sequel to Wonder Woman, however, another film in the series seems likely due to its box office success. Jenkins and the film’s star Gal Gadot are also contractually committed to a second film, noted The Hollywood Reporter.
