Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins takes us behind the scenes of the DC Comics adaptation
It’s finally here! Tonight, Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment‘s Wonder Woman hits theaters. If you’ve been following our coverage all this week, you’ve already seen our video interviews with headliner Gal Gadot and the rest of the Wonder Woman cast. Now, we’re thrilled to sit down with Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins! Jenkins, whose 2003 Monster earned star Charlize Theron an Academy Award, chats with us about realizing the world of Themyscira and how she went about capturing the 75-year legacy of the DC Comics super hero.
Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers… and her true destiny.
Wonder Woman also stars Chris Pine (Star Trek), Robin Wright (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Netflix‘s House of Cards), Ewen Bremner (Exodus: Gods and Kings, Snowpiercer), Saïd Taghmaoui (American Hustle), Elena Anaya (The Skin I Live In), Connie Nielsen (Gladiator, Nymphomaniac: Vol. I) and Lucy Davis (Shaun of the Dead).
