Geoff Johns, Patty Jenkins Teaming Up to Write Wonder Woman 2
No one is surprised that people already are talking about working on a second Wonder Woman film after the huge success of the first one earlier this month. Director Patty Jenkins has already expressed interest in helming the sequel, and even as a few ideas about where to take the Amazon warrior next. And according to Geoff Johns, the president and Chief Creative Officer of DC Comics, a treatment is already being written up.
In an interview with Variety, Johns confirms that he is already writing a treatment for Wonder Woman 2 with Jenkins:
Patty and I are writing the treatment right now. The goal is to make another great “Wonder Woman” film. I had a blast making it with Patty the first time. We’ve got a cool idea for the second one.
There is a plethora of content from which Johns and Jenkins can choose. Seventy-five years worth, in fact. While her rogues list isn’t as expansive as Superman’s or Batman’s, she does have a couple good ones — Cheetah and Circe. Too bad the DCEU killed off the pantheon of Greek gods. Or did they…?
Dr. Poison’s story [spoilers] is still unresolved, so maybe we’ll see her again somewhere down the line. At the very least we could see her legacy passed down. Remember that mysterious gas that suped-up General Ludendorff?
As Jenkins suggested in a statement of her own, we could see our hero in a modern-day setting, much like with Captain America. As far as we know, it’s all up in the air. Plus it’s still too early to know anything concrete right now. What we do know for sure is that Gal Gadot is reprising her role as Wonder Woman in the upcoming Justice League movie, as well as Connie Nielson as Hippolyta and Robin Wright as Antiope.
