Warning – potential spoilers ahead!

“We’re going to continue to explore. You know, the last movie was the coming-of-age story of Diana and how she became Wonder Woman. Now she’s been around for a few decades, helping make the world a better place. But she’s also struggled. She’s very lonely and doesn’t want to engage with people because she doesn’t want to be hurt by losing them again. And then something crazy happens and she has to deal with that. I can’t tell you more without giving away spoilers,” she revealed of Wonder Woman 1984.

“With a second movie, I just feel we took it to the next level. It’s so ambitious and so complicated to shoot. There are multiple storylines. We prepped it for six months and shot it for almost eight months. We gave everything we had to bring with the best story we could bring. I’m very proud of the result because it’s so close to my heart and I’m excited for you to watch it. You just saw the trailer. That’s just a glimpse!”

She also talked about Kristen Wiig joining the film franchise.

“I’m so happy Kristen said yes to this. She became a very close friend of mine. She’s so talented, so smart and she really has the range. Yes, Barbara is a character that starts off vulnerable and insecure. Then she transitions into someone dark and menacing. Diana sees many things in Barbara that she would like to have, and Barbara feels the same about Diana. Honestly, she’s my favorite villain. She’s so bad-ass and sexy and funny and sophisticated,” she revealed.

She was also asked about Chris Pine‘s involvement, who died in the first movie.

“Ooh, I can’t say much about that,” she said at first.

“He is there. Look, Chris Pine has been an integral part of the franchise. We were so sad that his character died. I’m so happy [director] Patty Jenkins and [co-screenwriter] Geoff Johns were able to find a way to bring him back in the story and bring him back in such a clever way. We never would have done it if it didn’t fit the story.”
