Gadot, Jenkins On “Wonder” Sequel Possibilities

The world premiere of “Wonder Woman” took place last night at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood. The film’s director Patty Jenkins and star Gal Gadot were on hand to greet fans, photographers and more on the red carpet – including giving some brief interviews.

First up, the pair spoke with Heat Vision about the early reaction and the prospect of a sequel. In terms of what era they’d like to explore with the character next, Gadot says: “She’s 3,000! So it’s hard to just pick one, but I would love to explore the early years of her in man’s world.”

Separately, Jenkins was asked a similar question by Uproxx who wondered if it might explore contemporary times or the 1930s. Jenkins responded: “I’m definitely planning something more interesting using that period of time. Definitely, it’s the plan. I can’t say what it is! But it’s definitely right in the pocket of what you’re talking about.”

Jenkins was also asked if fan response might influence her direction with a sequel to which she said: “I think you need to have a strong vision of your own. We had a bunch of fan screenings yesterday and they named their favorite scenes, and every single one named different scenes.”

Original 1970s “Wonder Woman” TV star Lynda Carter was also on hand at the premiere, posing for fans and with Gadot in some photos. “Wonder Woman” opens June 2nd.
