Now that “ Wonder Woman 1984 ” has hit theaters, director Patty Jenkins is focusing on developing “ Star Wars: Rogue Squadron, ” slated for December 2023.
However, would she ever revert to straight-through comic book-based movies, in addition to “Wonder Woman”?
Come to think of it, a Twitter user quizzed her with the same question and her answer was quite surprising.
“Hello Patty Jenkins, if you had a chance at another superhero movie, which one would you choose?” The fan asked.
To which she replied:
“Thanks for the question. Probably “Superman”, “Spider-Man” or “Black Widow”! I see so much potential there, always.

Meanwhile, “ Wonder Woman 1984 ” surprised the global box office, even though it was released simultaneously in the United States in streaming.
So far, the film has grossed $ 85 million worldwide, having aired in China and other overseas territories last weekend.
In the United States, the film grossed $ 16.7 million over the extended weekend – the BIGGEST premiere in the country since theaters reopened after the COVID pandemic. The film was released in 2,100 theaters in the United States and got a good opening on the big screens.
In Brazil, the film grossed 8.7 million reais on its first weekend, becoming the biggest release after theaters reopened in Brazil.
In all, 494 thousand people went to see the film on the big screen in theaters.
Brazil won the film’s fourth box office in the world, behind only China, Taiwan and Thailand, even with just 70% of the free-exposure market in the country. It reaffirms the strength of Brazilian productions and DC fans in the country, adding to several recent box office records with films such as “Joker”, “Aquaman” and “Justice League”.
Following the announcement of the opening, Warner confirmed that the third film in the franchise is in development.
“As fans around the world continue to embark on Diana Prince’s adventure, with the powerful opening of ‘Wonder Woman 1984’, we are thrilled to be able to continue her story with our true Wonder Women – Gal and Patty – who will return to complete the long-planned film trilogy, ”Toby Emmerich, chief of Warner Bros., said in an official statement.
Gal Gadot returns as Diana Prince / Wonder Woman and Patty Jenkins returns to write and direct the film.
