Wonder Woman wants no part of this deleted scenes bullshit

DVD junkies who go hunting for deleted scenes on the disc for Warner Bros.’ upcoming Wonder Woman will apparently be out of luck: According to director Patty Jenkins, pretty much everything she shot for the movie made it into the finished product. Given that Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice shipped with a three-hour extended cut, and Suicide Squad was loaded up with plenty of cut scenes of Jared Leto doing god knows what, that’s a pretty surprising accomplishment.

“We’ve got the DVD now, they keep wanting to put cut scenes and there aren’t any,” Jenkins told Collider, noting that “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.” Jenkins emphasized how smooth and easily flowing the film’s shooting schedule and editing has been, once again refuting claims that the film’s production was a “mess,” which stemmed from an anonymous letter from a “former Warner Bros. employee” that circulated a few months ago. “That was actually the most frustrating thing,” Jenkins said. “When somebody made up the rumor that it was a mess and I was like ‘Really? A mess? It’s the opposite, it is so steady, it’s been so even keel and steady.’ It’s been such an opposite experience… The rumor mill of these movies has been quite something to behold.”


Wonder Woman—all of it, apparently—arrives in theaters on June 2.
