Patty Jenkins, who directed the 2017 blockbuster Wonder Woman and helms its upcoming sequel, was at Sundance Film Festival over the weekend. While there, THR asked about her plans for Wonder Woman 3.
"I'm not set, but I'm not dying to do another period piece," Jenkins revealed. The director said she liked the idea of the next installment going into the future.
"It's definitely one of the things we've talked about. I'm not pining to put it in the past again, because then where are you going to go? It would be weird," she said.
"You have to go forward. So, it's definitely a contemporary story. That's all I can say. And so, where we put it and how that get's figured out, I haven't totally nailed down."
While a trilogy of Wonder Woman films is far from set in stone, Jenkins admitted she had ideas for a threequel.
"I have pretty clear plans for Wonder Woman 3,” Jenkins told Vanity Fair last week. "Whether I [direct] it or not, I see how her arc should end in my incarnation of Wonder Woman. I have great passion for that."
Jenkins was also asked about her thoughts on Justice League, which saw Wonder Woman team up with Batman, Aquaman and others.
"The Justice League movie, I find those movies to be extremely challenging," Jenkins told THR. "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 and I'm super excited to see each of their movies. I want to see Aquaman 2 and I want to see Flash.
She added: "You never know, I would never say never. But I think everybody should have a moment to shine right now."
