‘Wonder Woman’ Director Patty Jenkins Responds to Claim That Film is ‘A Mess’

Wonder Woman” director Patty Jenkins responded to an open letter allegedly written by a former Warner Bros. employee that slammed the production company for releasing an array of subpar superhero movies, ranging from 2013’s “Man of Steel” to this month’s “Suicide Squad.” The letter then proceeded to allude that “Wonder Woman” would be a “mess.”

“Maybe Wonder Woman wouldn’t be such a mess,” the letter states. “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.”

Although the identity of the letter’s author remains a mystery, Jenkins was less-than-pleased. She released a string of tweets on Friday responding to the scathing words.

“This is some made up bs right here,” Jenkins tweeted. “Produce a source, anyone.”

Jenkins went on to write “You can’t because it’s entirely false. Don’t believe the hype people. Someone’s trying to spread some serious misinfo.”

Though all the films criticized in the letter were indeed critical flops, all managed to gross successfully worldwide. “Suicide Squad” currently looks to top the weekend box office in its second frame.

Starring Gal Gadot, “Wonder Woman” hits theaters June 2, 2017.
