'Wonder Woman' News & Rumors: Director Patti Jenkins Denies Claims That 'Wonder Woman' is 'a mess' [VIDEO]
"Wonder Woman" released its first trailer at the 2016 SDCC to high acclaim from fans and critics, but rumors seems to point to an entirely different story. Ever since "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" was received very poorly by critics, Warner Bros has been very involved in the next film on their slate, "Suicide Squad" with news of reshoots. And now that Suicide Squad was met with a mere "meh" rating, fans can't help but wonder what the fate of the next DC/Warner Bros. film outing will be.
The current lukewarm to toxic reaction to the DC film universe that Warner Bros. has built is evident with an open letter created by an anonymous employee from Warner Bros stating that the current situation of the upcoming "Wonder Woman" movie is "a mess"
Director Patty Jenkins who helms the upcoming superhero period piece stated that the claims were just "some made-up BS."
According to NME, the allegedly dire situation of "Wonder Woman" was made public by a disgruntled Warnr Bros. employee in an open letter that point out to WB not learning from the mistakes that they made with the critical flop, "Batman v Superman," and continued making those mistake in their recent release, "Suicide Squad."
W3LiveNews reports that the open letter was directed to the CEO of Warner Bros., Kevin Tsujihara. The employees criticism were that the studio was making employees redundant while failing to acknowledge the fact that they have not blamed studio executives for the bad creative decisions that they have had in their movie universe.
The letter continued with the statement, "I wish to God you were made to live out of a car until you made a No 1 movie. Maybe Wonder Woman wouldn't be such a mess." This sparked the assumption that "Wonder Woman" may not be in good condition as WB has been making fans to believe.
There was an overwhelmingly positive response from fans and critics regarding the 2016 San Diego Comic Con trailer for "Wonder Woman," with actress Gal Gadot playing the titular character, but the open letter seems to suggest that the positives may stop there. The anonymous employee continued the letter with the statement, "Don't try to hide behind the great trailer. People inside are already confirming it's another mess. It's almost impressive how you keep rewarding the same producers and executives for making the same mistakes over and over."
Jenkins took to Twitter and further denied that there was trouble in the production of "Wonder Woman" in a series of tweets, saying that the open letter is just some made-up BS, and dares the letter writer to provide the source of his information. She further adds that the anonymous employee can't provide a source because there is none, and that people should not believe the hype, and that a person is trying to spread a malicious rumor.
