Patty Jenkins wollte Justice League nicht drehen


Die Wonder Woman-Regisseurin Patty Jenkins hatte ein Angebot, Regie bei Justice League zu führen, doch lehnte ab. Dem Premier Magazine sagte sie, dass ihr die volle kreative Kontrolle über ihre Filme wichtig sei und dass sie deshalb nicht so viel Wert auf Kontinuität innnerhalb eines geteilten Universums lege. Außerdem seien es ihr zu viele verschiedene Charaktere gewesen, die sie bei Justice League hätte vereinen müssen. Bei ihrem kommenden Film Wonder Woman 1984 habe sie das Gefühl, die kreative Kontrolle zu haben.

“I really like the people who work there, but they want full control over their movies. The director is under control. Yes, it can happen. Furthermore, It shows immediately if a director cannot impose his/her vision. When this is the case, I get the impression that these people are doing a different job than me. But with Wonder Woman 1984, I think I did exactly what I wanted. And then, everything a superhero movie needs comes naturally to me: I love shooting great action scenes versus great sets. I really enjoy it.

“I love comics, but I’ve come to superheroes through films. There is in me this desire to emulate compared to the movies I saw as a child. A certain spirit that reigned in those times. Is that relevant when I shoot? I don’t know. The point is, unlike other directors, I don’t really care about shared universes, continuity, and that kind of detail. I’ve been contacted to make a Justice League movie in the past, and it doesn’t connect to me. Too many characters.”
