Patty Jenkins says not to anticipate a Director's Cut for Wonder Woman

Throughout the years, director's cuts have remained a welcomed treat for cinephiles who enjoy seeing their favorite filmmakers projects as they were intended - before rewrites, time, and budget constraints forced certain scenes or ideas to hit the cutting room floor. That being said, those who are one day hoping to indulge themselves in a director's cut of WONDER WOMAN might be out of luck. According to director Patty Jenkins, she kept every single scene that was shot, leaving nothing in the wake of the Amazonian warrior princesses warpath.

Recently, while participating in a press junket for the female-led superhero adventure film, Jenkins shot down the possibility of there being an alternative version of the film when she stated, “You know, it’s not like a long journey didn’t happen but what amazes me is how little has actually changed from the first cut other than tightening. Little changes to the final battle, that was really it. I think that what I ended up finding about the final battle was I was hitting emotional points for Diana that I really wanted to hit but I felt a craving for some other kinds of emotional gratification and engagement that we tried to accentuate even more. I think what you learn is rhythm, tone, humor where the jokes are happening but in our case, I just now can finally say all this. We didn’t cut one scene in this movie nor did we change the order of one scene in this movie from the script that we went in shooting with.”

Way to remain on-point, Patty, particularly when you consider Warner Bros. predilection for releasing extended cuts as they did for BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE and SUICIDE SQUAD. Here's hoping that everything that was needed to make WONDER WOMAN one of DC's best films was captured and is ready to blow some minds when Jenkin's superhero extravaganza lassos its way into theaters on June 2, 2017.

Extra Tidbit: Diana Prince ran for president, twice! She first ran for office in a comic book written by Marston in 1943, and then again in a cover story in Ms. Magazine in 1972.
