WONDER WOMAN 3: What we know so far?
- Patty Jenkins will write and direct the movie.
- Jenkins has two more stories that in her own words will complete the Wonder Woman arc.
- Wonder Woman 3 will continue from Wonder Woman 1984.
During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Patty Jenkins said:
“The story will continue after this film, films that I could or might not direct. But I have got two more stories that will complete this one, and they are all about women acting as women, in the most adorable, pure, and natural way. They make a difference in the world without having to change who they really are.”
We can’t wait to learn more about it. Did you enjoy Wonder Woman 1984? And are you looking forward to more Wonder Woman DC action?
Wonder Woman 3 Comic Book Origins
We know the first two Wonder Woman movies did not follow a comic storyline like Avengers Infinity War. Instead, the movies are only inspired by the classic comics of the character.
Wonder Woman was created in 1941 by a feminist theorist and psychologist, William Moulton Marston, and designer Harry G. Peters:
She was created to represent strength, brilliance, beauty, amongst many other qualities. And was to be equal to other characters being created at the time.
Wonder Woman first appeared on No. 8 of the anthology magazine “All-Star Comics” in 1942 (below):
The Amazonian heroine has evolved since then: including her own cycle of comic books and appearing in many audio-visual products, including the Hollywood blockbusters directed by Patty Jenkins.
What Happened With Wonder Woman 1984?
The second movie, Wonder Woman 1984, was released in the United States on December 25th, in theatres (where it was possible, considering COVID-19) and on HBO Max.
It was also a cross-media project between theatre and comics:
With DC Comics releasing Wonder Woman 1984 No. 1, a special comic book that would act as a prologue to the Jenkins movie released in December 2020.
The comic, which was distributed in the United States through Walmart, sees the collaboration of Louise Simonson and the associate producer of the movie, Anna Obropta:
It contains two stories:
- Story one had Wonder Woman attempting to foil a hostage situation at the Smithsonian Museum.
- The second story involves a villain who tries to steal the famous Lasso of Truth.
- Bret Blevins illustrated story one, with Steve Pugh and Marguerite Sauvage illustrating story two.
Patty Jenkins Equal Pay Push
Wonder Woman was not only the beginning of a revival of the character but also a further step towards equality in Hollywood pay:
After the box office success of Wonder Woman, Patty Jenkins was called back from the production to discuss salary for the next movie (Wonder Woman 1984).
The first offer proposed was rejected by the director because it was less than what a man would have earned. Her response led to a second offer which contained increased wages and as Jenkins wanted (and deserved) a fair and equal compensation.
