Wonder Woman 1984 will have its own ‘No Man’s Land’ scene


Patty Jenkins is teasing an action sequence in Wonder Woman ’84 that rivals the ‘No Man’s Land’ scene.

While it’s still a ways off, Wonder Woman 1984 is already shaping up to be one of the most anticipated films of next year. Aside from the ’80s setting and the introductions of a few new characters like Kristen Wiig’s Cheetah, not much is known about it. However, director Patty Jenkins is now teasing an epic action sequence.

Jenkins sat down with Variety at Sundance Film Festival and was asked for details on the upcoming sequel. Of course, she didn’t say much, but she did reveal that there is an action sequence that she considers the “No Man’s Land” scene of the movie:

"“I have a scene that’s in this movie that is totally different, but it’s my “No Man’s Land” scene. There’s one scene that I am so excited about…but it won’t be the same scene, but there are some moments I’m really excited about."

Anyone who has seen Jenkins’ critically acclaimed Wonder Woman no doubt remembers the now-iconic “No Man’s Land” sequence, which features the titular heroine braving gunfire on a World War I battlefield. The scene was briefly glimpsed in the trailers, but became known as the film’s centerpiece once audiences witnessed it on the big screen.

Ironically, the scene almost didn’t make it into the film. Jenkins, who considers the scene her favorite in the film, had to convince the studio executives of its importance. To get her point across, she even storyboarded the scene herself, and in doing so, she was able to sell it to the powers that be.

It’s hard to imagine what’s being planned for the sequel. The original had the benefit of being set against the backdrop of World War I. It’ll be interesting to see what major action scenes can be mined from the colorful and radical ’80s.

There’s going to be plenty of pressure for Jenkins and her crew to one-up themselves this time around, and they may not. Regardless, based on her statements, it sounds like Jenkins has something special up her sleeve. Wonder Woman 1984 hits theaters on June 5, 2020.
