Patty Jenkins admitted wanting to direct "Wonder Woman" in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, saying the project is the right thing for her to do and with such comes great responsibility. Jenkins, also a producer and a writer, even took us into a sneak peek of the upcoming live action adaptation of the hit comic series.
According to her, the "Wonder Woman" film talks about the life and journey of Diana Prince, the alter ego of Wonder Woman who fights for a "loving, thoughtful government." As per Movie News Guide, Jenkins said the movie will bring to life the events inspired by the 1940 comic version written by William Moulton Marson.
The "Wonder Woman" is set to follow the footsteps of its television actress Lydia Carter. According to Jenkins, she left a huge impact to many, including her, as a little kid. The director also claims to have Wonder Woman as someone who isn't lesser in any way.
She vows to keep the legacy of Diana Prince while making her as universal as possible with her being beautiful and strong at the same time. Jenkins as well told The Hollywood Reporter of how few the heroines in films are. Often times, they even appear to be only the sidekicks unlike her upcoming movie.
