Patty Jenkins Says 'Wonder Woman 3' Likely to Be the Last in Franchise

Patty Jenkins Says 'Wonder Woman 3' Likely to Be the Last in Franchise

Wonder Woman is coming to an end.

Director Patty Jenkins opened up about the fate of the Gal Gadot-led superhero franchise in an interview with Geek, via ComingSoon.

The sequel to the first Wonder Woman movie of the franchise, Wonder Woman 1984, is still set to hit theaters on October 2.

WW84 gave me a chance to do a lot of things that I couldn’t accommodate in the first movie. I was so happy to tell the Wonder Woman origin story. It was almost her birth, but we really haven’t seen what she is capable of. It is exciting for me to show her at the peak of her strength. But it is also very important that she fights an internal struggle: she is a Goddess and tries to help humanity. She is not only someone who fights evil, she tries to show bad people how to improve. It’s an interesting dilemma. The next one is probably my last Wonder Woman movie, so I have to put everything I want to show there. We have to think carefully,” Patty explained to the outlet.

Gal Gadot and Kristen Wiig, the stars of Wonder Woman 1984, recently revealed that it “isn’t really” a sequel. See what they said!

Ellen Pompeo Reveals The Reasons She Chose To Stay on 'Grey's Anatomy' When Everyone Else Was Leaving

Ellen Pompeo Reveals The Reasons She Chose To Stay on 'Grey's Anatomy' When Everyone Else Was Leaving

Ellen Pompeo is opening up about the reason behind her choice to stay on Grey’s Anatomy, while her co-stars have left the long-running ABC series.

The 50-year-old actress, who plays Dr. Meredith Grey on the show, spoke on Spotify’s Jemele Hill Is Unbothered podcast about her decision.

“For me, personally, a healthy home life was more important than career. I didn’t grow up with a particularly happy childhood. So the idea that I have this great husband and these three beautiful children [and] a happy home life was really something I needed to complete, to close the hole in my heart,” Ellen says. “And so I made a decision to make money, and not chase creative acting roles.”

She continued. “I don’t like chasing anything ever, and acting to me, in my experience, was a lot of chasing. You’ve got to chase roles, you’ve got to beg for roles, you’ve got to convince people … and although I produce and it’s the same kind of thing, I think I still do it from a place of, I’m never that thirsty because I’m financially set.”

Ellen also says that her age did sway her in her choice to stay on the show, too.

“If I started the show when I was younger, [like] 25, I probably would have dipped out when I was 31, 32, [when] my six-year contract was up, but my age had a lot to do with it,” she added.

Ellen went on, “I knew coming up on 40, it’s like, I don’t want to be out there chasing things, running after things, begging. I’d rather just see this as the blessing that it is.”

It was revealed that Ellen is the highest paid women on primetime television, earning $575,000 per episode.

Last year, Ellen opened up further about her choice to stay on the series.
