Wonder Woman 1984 is 100 Percent Done, Says Director Patty Jenkins

Wonder Woman 1984 is complete! Director Patty Jenkins reveals that the final edits are done for the film, way ahead of schedule for its 2020 release

The first Wonder Woman movie was released in 2017 to critical acclaim and was considered a box office smash hit, making over $800 million dollars worldwide . The origin story of Diana, princess of the Amazons, was told effectively with Jenkins at the helm. Gal Gadot’s strong turn as Wonder Woman was well received and the movie (particularly the now iconic scene where Diana braves No Man’s Land alone) was seen as an exemplary feminist piece of cinema. Eager fans have been waiting in anticipation for news of the follow up ever since, and have been eating up every trailer and character poster teased ahead of the movie’s June 5, 2020 release date.

Jenkins also noted the final run time of the first cut of the film, saying that “The first cut was 2 hours and 45 so it wasn’t like 3 hours and a half. I’m not that kind of filmmaker.” The director also mentioned that the VFX or visual effects were entirely done for the movie, which means that while she still has time to play around with the editing, the actual cinematic look for the entire movie is completed. Due to the lengthy amount of time before the film actually premieres in 2020, Jenkins noted that the actual final run time of the film might be different than the 2 hours and 45 minutes of the first cut.

While fans were initially disappointed when Wonder Woman 1984’s original 2019 release date was pushed back a year, the movie appears to be shaping up to be worth the wait. Jenkins has also teased that she believes that there will be a scene in the sequel as equally iconic as the No Man’s Land scene. Expectations for the movie are sky-high, but if Jenkins herself appears to be confident with the sequel months ahead of schedule, even to the point where she joked that she wished she could push the movie back to it’s original release date after viewing a first cut, fans should feel reassured that the next movie is certain to be as epic as Diana herself.
