Patty Jenkins envisions the third Wonder Woman movie would be set in "contemporary" times, contrasting with the first two movies, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Jenkins, who co-wrote and directed the upcoming Wonder Woman 1984, said that if she gets to do a third film wants to move beyond period pieces.

"I'm not planning to put it in the past again, because where are you going to go?" Jenkins asks rhetorically. "You have to go forward. It's definitely a contemporary story. That's all I can say. Where we put it and how that gets figured out, I haven't totally nailed down."

When asked about the possibility of Jenkins eventually directing a DC team movie like another Justice League, the writer/director pushed back saying she's more interested in DC solo films from her and others.

"The Justice League movie, I find those movies to be extremely challenging. I think they are fantastic when they are well done," said Jenkins. "But taking on all of those characters at the same time in the timeline. … I sort of hope that we don't do a Justice League movie for a little while because I'm excited to see all of their movies. I want to see Aquaman 2, I want to see Flash."

"Never say never, but I think everyone should have their moment to shine," Jenkins added.
