WONDER WOMAN 1984 Director Updates On Third Installment And Planned AMAZONS Spinoff

With Wonder Woman 1984 set to hit theaters this October (we hope), director Patty Jenkins has updated fans on where she's currently at with a third movie, and the planned spinoff focusing on the Amazons...

Wonder Woman 1984 director Patty Jenkins recently revealed that she had a story arc in mind for Diana (Gal Gadot) that would encompass the first two movies, followed by Amazons (not the official title) and then a fourth installment, and while that still appears to be the goal, it sounds like the COVID-19 pandemic has had a bigger impact than we realized.

The coronavirus has obviously resulted in 1984's release being delayed, but during a new interview with Total Film, Jenkins revealed that the ongoing crisis has also prompted her to go back and rethink some of the ideas she's been working on for these planned Wonder Woman-related projects.

“I’ve really hit the pause button,” Jenkins says of the third film. “Because the truth is, where that plotline was coming from was our state of being six months ago. And so I want to make sure that I’m totally absorbing whatever the result of this pandemic is."

"We’re not starting to work on that movie right away," she continued. "I’m hoping to do this Amazon movie before we do the third Wonder Woman. And I may not do either of them. You never know what will happen in this world, you know? But yes, I think the plotline will stay very similar, probably. But I want to make sure it’s influenced by all of this.”

Wondy attempting to stop a mysterious global outbreak that turns normal people into Parademons? Okay, so it probably won't be quite so on the nose!

Whether Jenkins decided to move forward with a third film and this Amazon spinoff may ultimately depend on how Wonder Woman 1984 performs when it (hopefully) hits theaters later this year.

Can't they just bring Wonder Woman back to Themyscira for the third film and have that suffice as the "Amazons movie"?

This movie is never gonna happen. HBO Max exclusive at most.

Or maybe they could just make George Clooney's Batman a co-lead? That'd be a guaranteed green-light.

If WW84 is a hit, then i'm sure she'll do it, otherwise...

Yeah, i don't think she'd force a trilogy just for the sake of...the sake.

Would be better if she just went back to Themyscira for a whole movie

Tbh I’m already out from what I’ve seen of WW84, unless the third movie is inspired by Brian Azzarellos run I’m kinda done with the direction this series seems to be going in

My only request, modern day setting for WW3.
99OPTIMISTPRIME - 6/24/2020, 1:54 PM
@RolandD - Exactly! No more prequels. Especially if Flashpoint is at least somewhat a mild hit, there's gonna have to be a full-on Wonder Woman movie, dealing with today's issues. It seemed like that was Patty Jenkins was trying to say in that interview. How to adapt Wonder Woman in today's world.

@johnnymarr - Right after Frank drops the album

What's with every big DC film immediately getting a spin-off announcement?

Aquaman - The Trench
Suicide Squad - BoP
Wonder Woman - Amazons

What's next? A Steve Trevor solo movie?

Why, Patty? Why??

So the Amazons movie will involve them dealing with a pandemic hitting their hidden island?
inkniron - 6/24/2020, 2:13 PM
@bcom - Your everyday flu could probably ravage the island seeing as they have no outside contact and no immediate immunity.
bcom - 6/24/2020, 2:54 PM
@inkniron - Maybe that could be the story. It could pick up after the Amazons fought the soldiers on the beach in the first WW movie. One of those soldiers had a cold and passed it on to an Amazon. They are now fighting to find a cure for the common cold as it spreads across the island wiping out Amazons.
