Warner Bros. Greenlights Wonder Woman 3 With Patty Jenkins
That was fast. Only two days after Wonder Woman 1984 premiered on streaming and limited theatrical in the U.S., Warner Bros. announced a third installment in the series. Via Variety, star Gal Gadot and director Patty Jenkins will return. It’s not clear whether a third Wonder Woman film will have to wait until after Jenkins is done with her Star Wars: Rogue Squadron movie. Jenkins had previously been ambivalent about returning unless a theatrical experience could be guaranteed. Then she said she actually had two more stories to tell. Warner Bros., however, appears to think the third may become her last.
In a statement to Variety, studio chief Toby Emmerich said, “We are excited to be able continue her story with our real life Wonder Women — Gal and Patty — who will return to conclude the long-planned theatrical trilogy.”
Initial Wonder Woman 1984 reviews sounded highly positive, with critics extolling its message of hope. But since it opened, more reviewers have been critical of certain plot points, and Rotten Tomatoes retracted its “Certified Fresh” status. Superhero Hype’s review was and remains generally positive. Because streaming services aren’t required to release their numbers, it’s impossible to say exactly how many households watched it on HBO Max.
