Wonder Woman Director Patty Jenkins Says She’s Leaving After Third Film

Last month, Wonder Woman/Wonder Woman 1984 director Patty Jenkins explained that she’d “hit the pause button” on development for a third Wonder Woman film so that she could make sure she was “absorbing whatever the result of this pandemic is.”

“We’re not starting to work on that movie right away,” Jenkins had said. “I’m hoping to do this Amazon movie before we do the third Wonder Woman. And I may not do either of them. You never know what will happen in this world, you know?”


Now, in a recent interview with Geek (via IGN), a German publication, Jenkins revealed that Wonder Woman 3 will most likely be her final go at the character.



“[Wonder Woman 1984] gave me a chance to do a lot of things that I couldn’t accommodate in the first movie.” Jenkins shared. “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.”


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