Patty Jenkins responds to a story from the New York Post regarding the process of collaborating with Warner Bros on the Wonder Woman films.
Patty Jenkins, helmer of Wonder Woman 1984 and its predecessor, Wonder Woman, has taken to Twitter to call out The New York Post for misrepresenting her relationship with Warner Bros, the studio that produced both films.
Although Jenkins has spoken of late about the changes demanded by Warner Bros to the original film’s third act and her disagreements with its thinking, she clearly feels that many reports, including that of The New York Post’s, are escalating and sensationalising the conflict during the process of making both films.
Jenkins clearly feels aggrieved that stories such as these are circling the release of her Wonder Woman sequel and voiced her dismay on Twitter, saying…
Versions of this article seems to be everywhere and not true. There was no “war” with warner bros. over ww. I’m talking about 10 years of discussions with 10 different execs through them. And whole beard thing was about other projects at other studios.

The piece itself, as reported by Deadline, claimed that Jenkins’ initial script was rejected and that there was ‘mistrust’ between studio and director. Jenkins however denies this strongly, stating “I felt extremely supported in my vision on both films by @wbpictures, @ZackSnyder all the producers and everyone on board our eventual team”. She added that it was “Just was a long road to make it”, asking “let’s chill the dramatic headlines like ‘war.'”
Jenkins has a full slate ahead in the wake of Wonder Woman 1984. She is re-teaming with Gal Gadot on a big-budget Cleopatra epic and helming the next Star Wars movie, titled Rogue Squadron. You can also catch our review of Wonder Woman 1984 here.
