Patricia Jenkins is a director and screenwriter.
Patty Jenkins’s connection to superheroes runs deep. Long before she became the first woman to direct a major superhero film, Patty was relying on Superman to help her process the loss of her father. Marc talks with Patty about how she was intrigued by the romance of tragedy, as filtered through the type of mythic storytelling depicted in her two Wonder Woman movies. They also talk about her time as a punk rocker, her years working the camera on hip-hop videos, and how the Beatniks are responsible for her entry into the film business. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
She's got the most anticipated Christmas movie about to drop, a Star Wars movie up next, and a world of opportunities beyond so there's a lot for Josh and filmmaker Patty Jenkins to cover in this chat. Jenkins gets candid about why she almost walked away from the "Wonder Woman" sequel, her disappointment in WB's plan to release all of their movies next year on HBO Max, and how a rarely discussed accident almost ended her career (and life) before it all kicked into another gear.
