Didn’t the ending convince you? Well, don’t blame Jenkins.
The director originally wanted something more subdued.
Instead, she has been very satisfied with the outcome of ‘Wonder Woman 1984’
The second part is already in theaters.
The end of ‘Wonder Woman’, released in 2017, is not the most striking, but it has also had some controversy. That is due to the final fight between Diana ( Gal Gadot ) with Ares, the god of war ( David Thewlis ). A battle that is a bit out of place for many, but there is a reason for it.
In an interview with IGN, director Patty Jenkins reveals that Warner Bros. made the final change at the last minute. These were his statements:
“The original ending of the first movie was smaller too, but the studio made me change it at the last minute. And it’s always been a bit of a hassle than it’s the only thing people talk about because I agreed and told the studio no we had time to do it, but that one did what he could. I ended up liking it, but that wasn’t the original ending. ”
Jenkins doesn’t elaborate on exactly what that original ending would have involved, but she wanted something simpler and character-based, which makes sense. Without a doubt, one of the great moments of ‘Wonder Woman’, is when Diana crosses no man’s land, it is an exciting action scene, but it still informs us about the character and what she means to the world.
Jenkins assures that he is much happier with the end of ‘Wonder Woman 1984’. ” You know what I loved this time? That we were able to count on the final two,” says the filmmaker. ” We had visual effects, a great battle, which I just delved into and had a great time doing it and was very satisfied with it. But ultimately, the ending of the film is much smaller. That was very, very fun. No spoilers, there are all sorts of things going on, but it was really fun to shape it differently. ”
‘Wonder Woman 1984’ has been in theaters since December 18.
