KEY POINTS

  • Patty Jenkins said articles claiming she had a "war" with Warner Bros. over the first "Wonder Woman" film are "not true"
  • She clarified that she was referring to "10 years of discussions with 10 different execs through them"
  • Jenkins also defended her relationship with WB and said she received a lot of support from the company

Patty Jenkins has called out the New York Post and other media outlets for using dramatic headlines while covering the process of bringing the first “Wonder Woman” film to the big screen.

On Twitter, the 49-year-old filmmaker slammed the media outlet for using words like “war” in its headline to grab attention. Jenkins made it clear that there was no battle between her and Warner Bros. while making the first film in the Gal Gadot-led franchise.

“Versions of this article seem to be everywhere and not true. There was no 'war' with warner bros. over WW. I’m talking about 10 years of discussions with 10 different execs through them. And the whole beard thing was about other projects at other studios,” Jenkins wrote on Twitter.

The “Monster” helmer also defended her working relationship with the production giant and Zack Snyder, who helped her during the creative process of “Wonder Woman.” In another tweet, Jenkins wrote that she got “support” from everyone who was working on the project and criticized media outlets for using “dramatic headlines” in their stories.

“I felt extremely supported in my vision on both films by @wbpictures, @ZackSnyder, all the producers and everyone onboard our eventual team. Just was a long road to get to make it. Let’s chill the dramatic headline like war,” Jenkins said.

Her comments come a day after the New York Post published a story titled “Patty Jenkins exposes ‘war’ with Warner Bros. over ‘Wonder Woman,” which featured quotes from Jenkins’ interview with Marc Maron on the “WTF” podcast. The article noted that WB was not interested in Jenkins’ script and didn’t even want to read her story.

“They wanted to hire me like a beard; they wanted me to walk around on set as a woman, but it was their story and their vision . And my ideas? They didn’t even want to read my script. There was such mistrust of a different way of doing things and a different point of view,” the filmmaker said during her appearance on the podcast.

The first “Wonder Woman” movie starring Gadot as the titular character garnered critical acclaim and was a huge success at the box office, grossing more than $821 million globally.
