Fans of "Wonder Woman" (2017) will have a surprise: the sequel will not be a sequel.
The language within the film industry may be this, but "Wonder Woman 1984" will be a "sequel" in the same sense that "007 Specter" (2015) with Daniel Craig is formally a continuation of "Secret Agent 007" (1962), the first with Sean Connery.
According to the producer of the films (and the saga "The Dark Knight", "Justice League" and "Suicide Squad"), director Patty Jenkins wants to do something different.
"She was determined that this movie was the next chapter of 'Wonder Woman', but not a sequel, and it is certainly fulfilling," Charles Roven told Vulture.
"It's a completely different era and we'll have an idea of what Diana / Wonder Woman has been doing in the intervening years, but we are telling a completely different story.While still having many of the same emotional parts, a lot of humor, a lot of courageous action. It moves with the heart too, "he explained.
The filming of Wonder Woman 1984 is over and Patty Jenkins, a post-production manager in London, was not available to talk about the subject, but a close source who knows her intentions reinforced the director's idea clearly against the model industry.
"It's an independent film the same way as the Indiana Jones or James Bond films, instead of being a continuous story that needs many chapters," he told the film.
Regardless of intentions, Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen and Robin Wright return. The main novelties in the cast are Kristen Wiig and Pedro Pascal. "
The debut is scheduled for June 5, 2020.
