Wonder Woman Director Reveals What She Would Change About Film


Having just crossed $800 million at the global box office, Wonder Woman is queen at the box office. However, that doesn't mean director Patty Jenkins wouldn't change a thing about the movie. Speaking to ScreenRant, she revealed a few small details she would have included if she had the chance.

“There’s a million little things. If I had my druthers, the movie would be longer with little tiny jokes and moments that were hard to lose," she explained. "Particularly because the great thing about these actors is you have such talented funny capable people, so that was already great material for them to work from and then they all just like every mess around would be delightful. So it’s really hard to cut a movie like that down, and so just that sort of stuff -- details.”

As it stands, Wonder Woman is far more lighthearted than its DC Extended Universe compatriots Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. However, if Jenkins had her way, it seems there would have been even more humor in the WWI-period film.

Wonder Woman has surpassed the original Spider-Man movie’s total gross, and is only $4 million away from passing 2016’s Captain America: Civil War. In addition to box office success, the DCEU installment has been met with critical praise. The film will even return to IMAX for a limited run this month. The character also appear in Justice League, which is due out this November.

Available August 29 on Digital HD and September 19 on Blu-ray and DVD, Wonder Woman stars Gadot as Diana, Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Robin Wright as General Antiope, Danny Huston as General Erich Ludendorff, David Thewlis as Ares, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Elena Anaya as Doctor Poison, and Lucy Davis as Etta Candy.
