Why Patty Jenkins Doesn't Want Another Justice League Movie For Awhile


Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins doesn't want another Justice League movie any time soon, and she has an excellent reason why.

When asked by The Hollywood Reporter if she would be interested in directing a Justice League film, Jenkins responded, "I find those movies to be extremely challenging. I think they're fantastic when they're well done, but taking on all of those characters at the same time and the timeline. I sort of hope that we don't do a Justice League movie for a little while, because I think that each of those characters are really great. I'm super excited to see each of their movies. I want to see Aquaman 2, and I want to see Flash. I don't know. I would never say never, but I think everyone should have a moment to shine right now."

Following Justice League's disappointing performance at the box office, the future of the team-up series has been in doubt. Warner Bros. Chairman Toby Emmerich remarked earlier this month that the studio will focus less on a shared DC universe in the future, especially in light of the Aquaman solo film's monumental success at the box office. DC is also reportedly focusing on a Harley Quinn trilogy.
