AceShowbiz - "Wonder Woman" director Patty Jenkins, who is returning to helm its sequel, has responded to a "false" report that she will give our beloved Amazonian warrior princess Diana Prince a new love interest. Previously, Collider reported that Jenkins promised "Wonder Woman 2" would have a "great" love story as well as "unbelievable" fresh faces in the DC Extended Universe.
The site quoted Jenkins' statement from her recent interview on Variety's Playback Podcast. The helmer said at the time, "It's really still going to other values of hers, and a similar formula insofar as making a great, enjoyable fun movie but that ultimately in its third act turns some very big issues, and a very big experience that will aim to have slightly more weight and profundity than it has to have."
"Because that's a formula that I really like, and I like the idea of taking somebody on a very solid, great journey but that arrives at a bigger question being answered," she continued. "So it's like that but because she is Wonder Woman and she's here now and she's fully developed, it's got great fun from the start and great big superhero presence from the start, and is funny and a great love story again and a couple new unbelievable characters who I'm so excited about, who are very different than were in the last movie."
Jenkins didn't go on to elaborate who Diana Prince's new love interest could be and only said, "I feel like it's just the right amount the same world of Wonder Woman as the first movie while being a completely different story that tackles something very different but very similarly singular. One story."
In response to the Collider report, Jenkins took to her Twitter account to say that her statement has been taken out of context. "Quite a few people, including this headline, seem to be completely misunderstanding or making some pretty false assumptions based on one of many vague quotes I made about something I can't say ANYTHING about. Just wait," so the helmer wrote on Thursday, November 30.
