Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins talked to the Toronto Sun about Joss Whedon’s recently announced Batgirl film.
“[On Joss Whedon’s involvement] 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.”
Later in the interview, Jenkins gave Gal Gadot a series of compliments.
“Gal’s supernaturally beautiful and unbelievably kind and thoughtful and intelligent and wise, yet bright and youthful and hopeful in such a sweet way.”
Just before the interview ended, Jenkins talked about why she’s excited for the DC Extended Universe to move forward.
“There are a lot of directors I’m really excited about and the storylines are all vastly different, with different tones and very different approaches to storytelling. I think there’s a treasure trove of great characters here. Jason (Momoa) is off to do Aquaman right now – that’s such a cool story. It has its own vibe and dynamic completely. I’m excited to see each one of these films.”
