Speaking with the Toronto Sun, Jenkins expressed her interest in how the character will fill their iconic role as an American superhero. “I’m excited for her to come to America and become the Wonder Woman we are all familiar with from having grown up around her as an American superhero,” Jenkins said.
“I’d like to bring her a little farther along into the future and have a fun, exciting storyline that is its own thing. Wonder Woman 1 is so much about her becoming the person she is. I can’t wait to spring forward with who she is and have another great standalone superhero film.”
In regards to the first film, Jenkins spoke about her infatuation with exploring Wonder Woman’s origin story. “I always thought the origin story would be the great way to go,” Jenkins said. “I love origin superhero stories and I love the simplicity you can have with that journey. Also, there was the fact that no one had done her story and the fact that I love her. So it was a treasure trove of potential,” Jenkins continued.
Opening June 2, “Wonder Woman” stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Lucy Davis, Lisa Loven Kongsli, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner, Saïd Taghmaoui, and David Thewlis.
