“[Patty Jenkins] was just determined that this movie should be the next iteration of Wonder Woman but not a sequel. And she’s definitely delivering on that. It’s a completely different time frame and you’ll get a sense of what Diana-slash-Wonder Woman had been doing in the intervening years. But it’s a completely different story that we’re telling.”
Okay, so I guess Roven has just worded that retort confusingly, and what he meant to say is “it’s set after the first film, yes, but we don’t pick up from plot lines in it. We have a new adventure for Wonder Woman this time – different time, different place, different characters.”
We’ll find out if that’s correct on June 5, 2020 when “Wonder Woman 1984” is released.
