WONDER WOMAN Director Patty Jenkins Says Sequel Will Take Place In America

Warner Bros. wants to let its Wonder Woman film bask in its box office success so details on its sequel are scarce for now. However, director Patty Jenkins has just confirmed one key detail.

In the days leading up to the release of Wonder Woman in theaters, it was confirmed that a sequel was in development but writing on the script had yet to begin.  However, it stands to reason that director Patty Jenkins has at least thought about what she wants to explore next and that's exactly what her comments to Entertainment Weekly imply. Whereas the origin film took place primarily in London and Themyscira, the sequel is coming to the States.

The story will take place in the U.S., which I think is right.  She’s Wonder Woman. She’s got to come to America. It’s time.

As far as whether she'd have any hesitation about returning for a sequel, Jenkins admitted that she doesn't want to direct something to satisfy a contractual obligation if she's not passionate about it.  However, inspiration struck in the wee-hours of the night.

“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.  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 and Gal Gadot are under contract to return for a sequel which is thought to be set in contemporary times.  Add to that Jenkins above comments that the film will be set in the U.S. and one has to wonder (no pun intended) where Diana will call home.  In the comics, while exiled from Themyscira, Diana has called Gateway City, a West Coast city that bares striking resemblance to San Francisco.  It's also the home of The Spectre, though they rarely cross paths.
