Following the negative reviews Man of Steel, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Suicide Squad DC was in a weird place with their movies. Tales of reshuffling and reorganisation were rife then came an anonymous letter!
Now Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins has spoken out amid the anonymous letter apparently from someone claiming to be a former Warner Bros. employee wrote the film was “another mess” for the studio.
The anonymous letter to Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara was published Friday on Pajiba and the author claims the studio made a series of missteps leading to 2014 layoffs. The writer also has harsh words for Justice League director Zack Snyder — blaming him for the divided response to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and claiming his work is costing people their jobs.
“What are you even doing? I wish to God you were forced to live out of a car until you made a #1 movie of the year…maybe Wonder Woman wouldn’t be such a mess. 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.”
Jenkins has now responded via twitter:
“Woah, just saw this press about WW having problems. Are they serious? This is some made up bs right here. Made up! Produce a source, anyone,” she tweeted. “You can’t because it’s entirely false. Don’t believe the hype people. Someone’s trying to spread some serious misinfo. “Let me reassure you…Zero about the movie we are making has been called a mess by anyone in the know. Fact,” she continued. “Real lasso of truth, time, will reveal that letter to be false soon enough. But lame something so transparent in its agenda gets traction.”
Warner Bros. declined to comment.
