The DCEU has had a tumultuous existence. But, for the most part, there is a general consensus amongst both fans and detractors of this franchise that Wonder Woman is a good superhero film and, to many, the best movie in the DCEU. A big reason for its success was down to Patty Jenkins as director and she is back to direct the sequel, Wonder Woman 1984.

Wonder Woman 1984

At San Diego Comic-Con, Patty Jenkins discussed various aspects of the film, including the returning Chris Pine as Steve Trevor:

It’s something I’m super excited for everybody to see. [Chris] is a very important part of our movie.”

Patty Jenkins also had something to say about the 80s setting for the movie and what really mattered to her when it came to this sequel:

One of my favorite things about making the original was that it took place during World War I in 1917, an era full of metaphors like modernity and the mechanized world. I grew up in the ’80s, and this has its own look and feel. The reason I am excited is it showed mankind at its best and worst. It was grand and wonderful, there was great music and there were elegant and beautiful things. But other things about the decade revealed the worst of us. To have Wonder Woman in that period of time that was us at our most extreme, is wonderful.”

The thing that mattered to me the most is I wanted to make great movies in my lifetime. And I found myself saying I have these characters I love and this world that I love and we can make a movie about something completely new, pure and strong and as unique as the first one. Of course I want to do that.”
