Wonder Woman director on what she’d like to see in the sequel

23 April 2017 3:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In less than six weeks, Wonder Woman will make her solo big screen debut as Warner Bros. unleashes the next chapter of the DC Extended Universe. The film is tracking a solid $80 million plus domestic opening, and it seems that Patty Jenkins is now turning her eye towards a sequel, with the director talking to The Toronto Sun about what she’d like to see in the Amazon Princess’ second solo outing.

“I’m excited for her to come to America and become the Wonder Woman we are all familiar with from having grown up around her as an American superhero,” said Jenkins. “I’d like to bring her a little farther along into the future and have a fun, exciting storyline that is its own thing. Wonder Woman 1 is so much about her becoming the person she is. I can’t wait to spring forward with who she is »

‘Wonder Woman’ Director Patty Jenkins Says Superheroes Are Universal In Exclusive Video — Watch

13 April 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When Warner Brothers’ hotly anticipated “Wonder Woman” hits theaters on June 2, it will not only be a landmark moment for female superheroes, but also for female directors like Patty Jenkins, who told DC All Access that she always saw herself as Superman.

Audiences have been familiar with Jenkins ever since she wrote and directed “Monster” (2003), which starred Charlize Theron in a career-defining turn as serial killer Aileen Wuornos, for which she won an Academy Award. More recently, Jenkins has directed for television show like “The Killing,” “Arrested Development,” and “Entourage.” “Wonder Woman” marks a giant step up for Jenkins, as well as female directors who rarely get offered blockbusters.

Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins on working within the established DC Extended Universe

9 April 2017 7:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’re just a couple of months away from the release of Wonder Woman, the fourth entry in the DC Extended Universe, and the first female-led superhero movie from Warner Bros. and DC Films.

During an interview with Empire, director Patty Jenkins has been discussing how she found working within the confines of the shared universe already established by Zack Snyder in last year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

“I didn’t get to choose [Gadot], but boy was I relieved once I realized who she was,” said Jenkins. “That is like a make it or break it thing, who plays these characters. So when I first heard Zack Snyder has cast somebody as Wonder Woman, a movie I had wanted to make for a long time, I was cautious. But then, oh my God, they couldn’t have found anybody better in the whole wide world. Just look »

Wonder Woman projected for $83 million domestic opening, lowest of the Dceu so far

8 April 2017 5:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’re two months away from the premiere of Warner Bros. and DC Films’ latest offering Wonder Woman, and now the first early box office predictions for the Gal Gadot-headlined solo movie are in, projecting an $83 million domestic opening for the fourth instalment of the DC Extended Universe, and a total domestic haul of $225 million.

Should the prediction prove accurate, would open with the lowest weekend of the Dceu to date behind Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ($166 million), Suicide Squad ($133.6 million) and Man of Steel ($116.6 million).

In fairness, Wonder Woman will face some stiff competition at the box office – it opens between Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and The Mummy – and an opening north of $80 million is certainly solid. Plus, as we’ve seen on countless occasions, box office tracking is rarely accurate, with movies regularly exceeding their projections.

5 April 2017 2:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Speaking to ComicBook, Jenkins enthusiastically expressed: “I mean I think he’s the biggest villain of Wonder Woman’s world, and so I think if you’re going to start off big, start off right with the greatest villain.”

She also aimed to make a funny movie, going on to state that: “We definitely went for making a funny film. I was always basing it on Superman I and on Indiana Jones.

Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins excited about Joss Whedon potentially helming Batgirl Dceu movie

4 April 2017 2:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following the exciting rumors that The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon will be writing, producing, and directing a Batgirl movie for the Dceu, Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins has offered her thoughts on the situation.

Speaking to the Toronto Sun, Jenkins enthusiastically stated: “I don’t even know if that deal is done or not – I don’t have the inside scoop on that, but if it is done, then I’m excited about it. I think it’s super exciting, the tone of Joss’ work is great for female superheroes. He takes such a fun approach and I think he’ll have fun in the DC universe, which will be excited to have him.”

Charlize Theron (Monster, Young Adult) and Laverne McKinnon, of Denver & Delilah, Christian Ditter (How to Be Single) and Sophia Amoruso will also serve as executive producers.

Girlboss (Nsfw) Trailer: Welcome to Adulthood Mother F&$@*%$

3 April 2017 1:30 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Girlboss is inspired by the New York Times best-selling book #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso, founder of the fashion brand Nasty Gal.

The series centers on Sophia (Britt Robertson), who began selling vintage clothes on eBay and, by the age of 28, had built the multi-million dollar fashion empire, Nasty Gal.

The trailer is as nasty as a girl can be, with swearing from Sophia and pretty much everyone around her.

It looks like it will be a lot of fun getting to know this young lady ah, nasty gal.

And lest you think your time to create a fortune on Ebay has passed, with so many people moving toward everyday processed goods for the ease of their markets on the Bay, there are fortunes to be had in all kinds of exciting places on Ebay.

Maybe you'll be the next Girlboss or Boyboss if you just give it a try!

Let Us Now Praise The Mad Genius Of Richard Harland Smith

2 April 2017 3:09 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

A few years ago, in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the death of influential film critic Pauline Kael, I wrote the following:

“I think (Kael) did a lot to expose the truth… that directors, writers and actors who often work awfully close to the surface may still have subterranean levels of achievement or purpose or commentary that they themselves may be least qualified to articulate. It’s what’s behind her disdain for Antonioni’s pontificating at the Cannes film festival; it’s what behind the high percentage of uselessness of proliferating DVD commentaries in which we get to hear every dull anecdote, redundant explication of plot development and any other inanity that strikes the director of the latest Jennifer Aniston rom-com to blurt out breathlessly; and it is what’s behind a director like Eli Roth, who tailors the subtext of something like Hostel Part II almost as »

We got a look at Wonder Woman’s big bad in action figure form during the New York Toy Fair last month [see here], and now we’ve got another peek at Ares thanks to Lego’s DC Comics Super Heroes Wonder Woman Warrior Battle set.

Joss Whedon May Direct Batgirl Standalone Film

30 March 2017 11:02 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

“Batgirl”: DC Comics

Joss Whedon is bringing another heroine to the screen. The “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” creator is “nearing a deal” to write, direct, and produce an untitled Batgirl film for Warner Bros. as part of its DC Extended Universe, Variety reports. Whedon previously helmed 2012’s “The Avengers” and its 2015 sequel “Avengers: Age of Ultron” for DC Comics competitor Marvel.

Despite being one of the world’s most well-known and popular superheroines, this will be the first film to center on the fan favorite character, who “first appeared in DC Comics in 1967 as Barbara Gordon, the daughter of Gotham City police commissioner James Gordon in ‘The Million Dollar Debut of Batgirl!’ Variety writes.

The project, which currently has no other producers attached, “originated in the past month.” So, it seems like things are moving quickly, thankfully — female-led films about caped crusaders are long overdue.

Two months before DC (finally!) announced a “Wonder Woman” movie and Marvel responded with a “Captain Marvel” adventure, Whedon was asked about the dearth of superheroines on the big screen. The “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” co-creator was admirably blunt in his response: “It’s a phenomenon in the industry that we call ‘stupid people.’” He continued, “There is genuine, recalcitrant, intractable sexism, and old-fashioned, quiet misogyny that goes on.” “There’s always an excuse,” he explained. “You hear ‘Oh, [female superheroes] don’t work because of these two bad ones [‘Catwoman’ and ‘Elektra’] that were made eight years ago.’”

While we’ll always rally for women directors to get the high-profile, big-budget gigs they are so often passed over for — especially if the gig in question centers on a superheroine — Whedon has spent his career depicting nuanced and empowering female characters. He famously conceived “Buffy” after watching “a lot of horror movies that starred pretty blonde girls who walk into alleys and get killed”; Buffy would be a girl who “could walk through an alley and take care of herself.” If a man is going to direct the Batgirl film, we’re thrilled it’s Whedon, who has never shied away from celebrating the strength of women and calling out sexism.

Whedon’s “Avengers” movies are the two highest-grossing Marvel Cinematic Universe projects of all-time. Combined, they’ve made over $2.9 billion worldwide. His work on the small screen includes creating “Dollhouse,” “Firefly,” and “Angel.”

DC’s “Wonder Woman,” starring Gal Gadot as the Amazonian warrior, hits theaters June 2. The film is directed by Patty Jenkins (“Monster”). “Suicide Squad” actress Margot Robbie will topline DC’s “Gotham City Sirens,” which centers on famous female villains from the DC universe including Robbie’s Harley Quinn. No word on when to expect the David Ayer-directed project. Marvel’s “Captain Marvel,” led by Oscar winner Brie Larson, is scheduled for release March 8, 2019, but a director hasn’t been announced yet. Based on a shortlist that became public last summer, it seems that a female director is being sought to tell Carol Danvers’ story.

Joss Whedon May Direct Batgirl Standalone Film was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »
