KEY POINTS

  • Patty Jenkins plans to bid goodbye to "Wonder Woman" after the third film
  • Jenkins revealed that the third film will "probably" her last in the franchise 
  • The second movie, entitled "Wonder Woman 1984," is scheduled to hit theaters on Oct. 2, 2020. 

Filmmaker Patty Jenkins, known for directing blockbuster movie “Wonder Woman” in 2017, has revealed that the third movie in the “Wonder Woman” franchise will “probably” her last.

The 49-year-old director revealed that she wants to “put everything” that she has in her mind into the third movie because she believes it will be a perfect time for her to bid adieu to the film series.

Jenkins also revealed that she has to “think carefully” about what she shows in her last movie of the franchise, Collider reported citing the filmmaker’s interview with German publication Geek.

“The next one is probably my last Wonder Woman movie, so I have to put everything I want to show there. We have to think carefully,” Jenkins added.

The acclaimed filmmaker also shared that working on the second film was surreal and it gave her a chance to show many things that she “could not accommodate” in the first film. The “Monster” helmer also explained that “WW84” would show the Amazonian at the “peak of her strength.”

However, she admitted the movie will also show her fighting her own internal struggles.

“‘WW84’ gave me a chance to do a lot of things that I couldn't accommodate in the first movie. I was so happy to tell the Wonder Woman origin story. It was almost her birth, but we really haven't seen what she is capable of. It is exciting for me to show her at the peak of her strength. But it is also very important that she fights an internal struggle: she is a Goddess and tries to help humanity. She is not only someone who fights evil, she tries to show bad people how to improve. It's an interesting dilemma,” Jenkins said during the interview.

The original “Wonder Woman” movie was a massive success for Jenkins and Gal Gadot. The film received universal acclaim and became the first DCEU movie to hold a score of 93% on review site Rotten Tomatoes.

The plot of “Wonder Woman 1984” has been kept under wraps. Apart from Gadot and Chris Pine, the film will introduce Kristen Wiig as super-villain Cheetah while Pedro Pascal will be playing the role of Maxwell Lord.

The movie is slated to hit theaters on Oct. 2, 2020.
