Move over Henry Cavill, enter Ryan Gosling.
“Wonder Woman” director Patty Jenkins and Canada’s wonder boy Ryan Gosling are teaming up for a Superman indie film! Jenkins earned audience approval for her work on “Wonder Woman” starring Gal Gadot and she already has her next superhero project in place.
The director wants to make an indie drama titled “I am Superman” with Gosling, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The movie won’t be tied to DC’s cast of “Justice League” characters, but the movie’s tagline describes “a fighting pitbull finds itself on a strange and unexpected journey that will ultimately decide its fate.”
Speaking of “Wonder Woman”, fans expecting an extended version of the movie may be disappointed. In an interview with Collider, Jenkins revealed the film had no deleted scenes. “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,” the director said.
“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.”
“There aren’t any [deleted scenes] and that was actually the most frustrating thing when somebody made up the rumour that it was a mess and I was like ‘Really? A mess? It’s the opposite,” she continued. “It is so steady. It’s been so even keel and steady.’ It’s been such an opposite experience.”
“Wonder Woman” premiered on Thursday, June 1 and is on track for a $100 million opening weekend at the box office according to early estimates.
