Patty Jenkins calls Wonder Woman Oscar buzz ‘huge honor’
2018-Jan-11 | By News Admin

Director Patty Jenkins says she’s thrilled by the Oscar buzz that Wonder Woman is generating, ahead of this year’s Academy Awards nominations being announced. Following the highly divisive 2016 installments Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, DC Films needed Wonder Woman to be a proper critical success. Jenkins had already demonstrated her ability to helm a film that properly depicts a female protagonist with 2003’s Monster, but more than a decade has passed since that film’s release when she was recruited to bring Diana Prince to the big screen.

Fortunately, when Wonder Woman was released in theaters, both Jenkins and star Gal Gadot proved their naysayers wrong. Wonder Womanwas a smash hit and it quickly became clear that if there’s anyone capable of further expanding the DC superhero’s movie franchise, it’s Jenkins. Warner Bros. has since locked Jenkins in to direct the Wonder Woman sequel scheduled for 2019. However, before she fully dives into the follow-up, Jenkins continues to celebrate the groundbreaking success of her first DC Comics adaptation – one that might even land an Oscar nod or two, very soon.
