All eyes are on Wonder Woman to deliver a crowd-pleasing hit for DC Comics following the mixed reviews for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad this year. And yet, the 2017 superhero film might be bad… but it might not be, either!
An open letter from a former Warner Bros. employee gave the film the sting of bad buzz last week when it included the line, “People inside are already confirming it’s another mess.” Yet director Patty Jenkins took to Twitter to say that such claims were pure malarky:
Woah, just saw this press about WW having problems. Are they serious? This is some made up bs right here. Made up! Produce a source, anyone.— Patty Jenkins (@PattyJenks) August 12, 2016
You can’t because it’s entirely false. Don’t believe the hype people. Someone’s trying to spread some serious misinfo.— Patty Jenkins (@PattyJenks) August 12, 2016
Isn’t until you are intimately involved in these things that you realize how totally false these rumors can. Let me reassure you...— Patty Jenkins (@PattyJenks) August 12, 2016
Zero about the movie we are making has been called a mess by anyone in the know. Fact.— Patty Jenkins (@PattyJenks) August 12, 2016
Worth remembering: Wonder Woman is still 10 months away from hitting theaters on June 2, 2017, so if it is a mess, it's got plenty of time not to be! Jenkins will direct Gal Gadot, who appeared in Batman v Superman to preview her take on the character, and Chris Pine, Lucy Davis and Robin Wright will also appear.
