Wonder Woman is currently knocking out the glass ceiling for female-led blockbuster movies – and definitely changing the perception for what female superhero movies can achieve in the market. Of course, a lot of what makes Wonder Woman connect with viewers is the passion and understanding that director Patty Jenkins (Monster) has for the DC Comics superheroine, who she’s always wanted to see on the big screen.
Now that Jenkins has made Wonder Woman a major box office success, fans are starting to wonder (pun) what’s next on the director’s slate – with the most obvious choice being Wonder Woman 2. However, during a recent QA on Reddit, Jenkins revealed she’d also love to work on another DC Comics superhero movie for the DC Extended Universe.
When asked if there was any DC Superhero movie she’d like to do, Jenkins answered, “It’s no secret that I love Superman but right now I’m just happy doing Wonder Woman.”
Wonder Woman‘s box office success is still very new, and there’s no telling (yet) when DC Films is looking to get a sequel into theaters; however, it’s long been rumored that the next Superman movie (tentatively titled Man of Steel 2) could be coming around 2020. There are still only rumors circling about who might direct the Superman sequel – and at this point, a lot of fans would wholeheartedly embrace the idea of Jenkins taking on the project.
It would be fitting, too, since Jenkins’ work on Wonder Woman has already drawn comparison to Richard Donner’s Superman movie, which inspired multiple generations with dreams of being superheroes. Seeing Jenkins bring “The Donner Effect” back to Superman would thrill all those who didn’t care for Zack Snyder’s more somber and violent take on the character.
Watch the Internet, as “Jenkins for MOS2” campaigns are sure to follow, shortly.
Wonder Woman is in theaters now, followed by Justice League on November 17, 2017; Aquaman on July 27, 2018; Shazam on April 5, 2019; Justice League 2 on June 14, 2019; Cyborg on April 3, 2020; and Green Lantern Corps on July 24, 2020.
