While promoting her latest project, I Am The Night which also stars Chris Pine, director Patty Jenkins lets it be known she has plans for Wonder Woman 3.
“I have pretty clear plans for Wonder Woman 3,” Jenkins told Vanity Fair.
Jenkins continued with mention that she is unsure if she will direct it, but the third movie will be the last of a trilogy.
“Whether I [direct] it or not, I see how her arc should end in my incarnation of Wonder Woman. I have great passion for that,” Jenkins said.
Patty Jenkins also recently touched upon the return of Pine as Steve Trevor in the upcoming Wonder Woman 1984. Last we saw of the character was at the end of the first movie when he seemingly died while saving everyone, which has left fans questioning how Trevor can return in the sequel. Jenkins reassures fans it will be done right.
“It’s interesting. I thought of what this next movie should be in the middle of making the first movie,” Jenkins filled in AM to DM about Chris Pine returning as Steve Trevor. “So it wasn’t the solution to ‘oh, god, that was worked out, let’s try to jam you in there.’ It’s all incredibly important to the story. It makes perfect sense. That’s all I can tell you. I can’t tell you anymore.”
Wonder Woman 1984 has a June 5, 2020 release and also stars Gal Gadot as the titular character, Kristen Wiig as the supervillain Cheetah, with Pedro Pascal in a mystery role.
The limited series I Am The Night airs on TNT Jan. 28 starting at 9pm EST and tells the incredible story of Fauna Hodel (India Eisley) who was given away at birth. As Fauna begins to investigate the secrets to her past, she follows a sinister trail that swirls ever closer to an infamous Hollywood gynecologist, Dr. George Hodel (Jefferson Mays), a man involved in the darkest Hollywood debauchery. Chris Pine plays Jay Singletary, a former Marine-turned-hack-reporter/paparazzo.
