Patty Jenkins has mixed feelings about women-only Wonder Woman

Press Trust of India  |  New York 

Director Patty Jenkins said she might not be completely onboard with the idea of organising women-only shows of her recently-released superhero film "Wonder Woman".

The comments of the 45-year-old filmmaker, who has received critical acclaim for the Gal Gadot-starrer DC film, come after a theatre in Austin showed a woman-only show of the movie, reported Elle magazine.

"I actually have sort of mixed feelings about all of that only because I do believe in not excluding anyone from anything. And so, on the one hand, I'm so delighted by those screenings and want people to be able to have those screenings.

"On the other hand I can imagine being offended if I'm excluded from those screenings, particularly because Wonder Woman herself has a very, very passionate fan base, many of whom are men," Jenkins told The Frame.
