Patty Jenkins Suggests She’ll Only Direct 3rd ‘Wonder Woman’ if It Opens in Theaters
According to her own account, the 1984 director of "Wonder Woman" Patty Jenkins resisted a move from theaters to a digital release on HBO Max mandated by COVID-19 until it became clear that she had no other than longer delays Had a choice. So it's no surprise to learn that she doesn't seem interested in returning for a third installment unless she definitely did theater first.
Jenkins said so in a comprehensive interview with the New York Times. NYT's Kyle Buchanan asked if she wanted to direct "Wonder Woman" 3 and prompted this response:
"Let's see what happens. I really don't know. I know that I would like to do the third, if the circumstances are right and a theater model is still possible. I don't know if I would do it if it wasn't. "

The interesting thing is that Jenkins is apparently also pointing out that she's not even locked out to run the third installment. Of course these things are complicated, but we are not going to lie, this is weird. James Gunn, just to pull a name out of our hats, had included in his original contract with Marvel the option of Guardians of the Galaxy to direct the sequel if Disney wanted. That happened of course and then a month before "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" came out, the company announced that it would also have "Vol. 3."
Like Gunn for Marvel, Jenkins also directed a surprise hit that greatly expanded the potential audience for Warner Bros. superhero films. But it seems like WB is doing things a little bit differently; Jenkins told NYT real discussions about her coming back for a sequel to "Wonder Woman," which didn't start until it was released.
"As soon as 'Wonder Woman' came out and it was successful we started talking about it and then the contract negotiations were very rough and took a long time," she said. “But if not me, after doing Wonder Woman, then who should get the same salary? I wanted to get paid at least as much as people who did less well with their first superhero films. "
They may be waiting to see how "Wonder Woman 1984" plays out with its hybrid HBO Max / theatrical release before making a decision. Which, ok sure, guys.
At least Jenkins is well paid: during the interview, she also confirmed rumors of her $ 8 million to $ 10 million payday for "Wonder Woman: 1984".
