Patty Jenkins Slams Claims of ‘Wonder Woman’ Woes


Patty Jenkins is clarifying some rumors that are circulating about her upcoming film, “Wonder Woman.”

It all started Friday, when an open letter from an alleged former employee of Warner Bros. (the studio behind the DC Comics films of late) slammed the studio’s CEO, Kevin Tsujihara, for the large layoffs in 2014 and some of the critically panned films (i.e. “Batman v Superman” and “Suicide Squad”) the studio has produced recently.

One part specifically caught fans’ eyes. Towards the end of the letter, the writer suggests “Wonder Woman” may, too, be in trouble. The letter says, “Maybe Wonder Woman wouldn’t be such a mess. Don’t try to hide behind the great trailer. People inside are already confirming it’s another mess. It is almost impressive how you keep rewarding the same producers and executives for making the same mistakes, over and over.”

Then, Jenkins took to her Twitter page to tweet her reaction. In a long series of tweets, Jenkins said:

The authenticity of the letter has not been verified.

“Wonder Woman” stars Gal Gadot as the titular superhero and her alter ego Diana Prince. Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen and Robin Wright also star in the film, which is slated for release June 2, 2017.
