Patty Jenkins is already planning the Wonder Woman sequel...


It's already stormed the US weekend box office to the tune of $100m and has won critical plaudits across the world. So it's safe to say that Wonder Woman is the triumphant DC Universe movie that we've been waiting for.

Responsible for marshalling Wonder Woman's wondrous success is of course director Patty Jenkins. She's made history for being the first woman to helm a superhero movie, and has broken records as the first female director to cross the $100m barrier in the first few days of release.

And if you couldn't get enough of Gal Gadot's stirring central performance, good news – because the Wonder Woman sequel is already on the cards. And Jenkins says the formula is going to be shaken up a bit.

"What I never want to do is start phoning it in and making things just to show that I can keep my foot in the door and do big movies," Jenkins tells The Hollywood Reporter. "I don't care about that at all. I just want to make great movies. And that could come from any direction. It might be a $10 million movie or it might be a $200 million movie."

The narrative will also move beyond the first movie's European setting, as Jenkins tells Entertainment Weekly.

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

Even so, the exact details are a little fuzzy as Uproxx reports. When asked whether the next movie will be set in a contemporary or 1930s period context, Jenkins replied: "It is for sure – I’m definitely planning something more interesting using that period of time. Definitely, it’s the plan. I can’t say what it is! But it’s definitely right in the pocket of what you’re talking about."
