Patty Jenkins addresses rumors of studio concerns surrounding Wonder Woman

Last week, the Internets was ablaze with conversation surrounding an anonymous letter from someone claiming to be a former Warner Bros insider. This letter was incredibly toxic towards WB leadership, especially in regards to how they have handled DC Comics adaptations to date. One comment of note in letter was focused on WONDER WOMAN.

What are you even doing? I wish to God you were forced to live out of a car until you made a #1 movie of the year. 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.

Now, you will recall that audiences were incredibly receptive to the first trailer that debuted at Comic Con last month but with the recent critical reaction to SUICIDE SQUAD, it is difficult to totally discount that there could be some truth to this. Still, an unsubstantiated letter claiming the movie is in trouble doesn't exactly mean that it actually is. But, Patty Jenkins herself has taken to social media to address the negative buzz bubbling online.

Of course a director is going to defend their film (unless you are this guy). The WONDER WOMAN trailer could be just an incredibly well edited piece of advertising which hides a bad movie underneath. Or, the movie could actually be good. It will be tough to say for certain under the finished film is screened for audiences.

I am not one to judge a film on a trailer nor am I someone who will take one person's word for it. If WONDER WOMAN is truly a mess, that will be the result of studio meddling or an incompetent crew. Just like any bad film, there is someone to blame, but that doesn't mean people cannot find enjoyment in the finished product. Fans are enjoying SUICIDE SQUAD despite what the critics say. There is no massive conspiracy to destroy DC films but there may be something in Warner Bros' approach that should be adjusted as well.

We will all find out for sure how good the movie is when WONDER WOMAN opens on June 2, 2017.

Staying neutral because while the letter was unnecessarily harsh, some of it is true. Also, I think WW looks kickass but it wasn't until this article that I realized: the SDCC '15 trailer for Suicide Squad looked chilling & super cool (IMO), and then it was a "mess" or whatever. Now here we are, the SDCC '16 trailer for WW looks awesome... I hope this is not part of a pattern. Time will tell.

I'm all for constructive criticism

Batman v Superman definitely has issues and so does Suicide Squad but honestly I'm so tired of all the awful press the DCEU is getting. While I always think there is room for improvement it's getting really annoying. The only positive I can see is that things will only keep getting better. I have enjoyed these movies overall... I'd watch Batman v Superman or Man of Steel anyday over any of the Thor movies, the Hulk, or Captain America 1. I think it's a much more interesting movie than those

Look I'm a huge Marvel fan but even I gotta say this shit is getting lame with DC bashing. I mean the WW trailer was, in my opinion, the best thing this new DCCU has put out to date. BVS might have sucked but WW looks fucking amazing. Could it just be the perfect trailer and the movie suck? Yup. But all I have to judge WW is what I have seen, and what I have seen is amazing. So am I going to take the word or some unsubstantiated source or my own eyes. Don't think on that too long, I think vast

I want the DCCU movies to be good, because I love the characters. So fuck this anonymous source.

I don't trust the letter, and I don't trust the director; for now I trust that I enjoyed the trailer for the most part, and that I'm interested in seeing more. I hope that they do a good job, but I'd be lying if I didn't say I'm cautious about the DC Comics movies right now.

One could argue that there isn't any evidence that this guy actually is a WB insider and would be 100%. For all we know, this could be a frustrated fan taking his revenge on a studio who doesn't films to his liking.

The problem is that, other than Wonder Woman, everything he says can mostly be confirmed to be true. There really was a problem with the way WB operates and it has to start at the top. Maybe Geoff Johns is going to come in and be the saviour the studio need but it's hard to give

Maybe Geoff Johns is going to come in and be the saviour the studio need but it's hard to give them the benefit of the doubt. I was convinced Suicide Squad was going to be the film that gets the DCEU on track but after a terrific marketing campaign, it still was subpar. It's hard to put to much trust on WW's trailer under these conditions...

There seems to be a lot of evidence the writer does not know what they're talking about. One of them is no mention of Geoff Johns who's been in charge for awhile. Check out this article/answer to the letter.

I could be wrong here, but I think Wonder Woman has to do really well or it could completely derail the DC cinema verse.

Well Justice League will really be the make or break point. But if WW tanks, it makes Justice League's odd much bleaker.

I feel you...

i am in the same position of asking how this site hires people like you for giving a biased opinion.
we are only fans, if this studios make a bad movie we have the option, dont watch the movie Or we can go and make them more rich ala Transformers.

This guy's OK. Seems he only wrote the article because the director responded to it. Bill Donnelly and Matt Rooney though... God help us.
