'Wonder Woman' Finished Production Without a Single Deleted Scene
Warner Bros.
Wonder Woman comes out next week with a runtime of 141 minutes, which is pretty standard for superhero movies even if that's a long time overall. But what's more unusual is that you'll really be seeing the entire movie, because director Patty Jenkins says Wonder Woman has no deleted scenes.

Speaking to Collider, Jenkins explained that since there were no major plot changes or serious restructurings of the film, the only edits were small tweaks to hit proper rhythms and emotional beats. None of the cut material is long enough to become a deleted scene on the Blu-ray:

Opening quote
"You know, it's not like a long journey didn't happen but what amazes me is how little has actually changed from the first cut other than tightening. Little changes to the final battle, that was really it... 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."
Closing quote


While something like this can't help us predict much about the film, it's a good sign that things were running efficiently, which runs contrary to earlier rumors that the film was a mess. That was an easy rumor to jump onto at the time, since the previous DC movies were messes even after they came out, but Jenkins firmly dismissed the idea that any disasters happened during filming.

And the lack of deleted scenes is a notable change from the past few DC movies - Batman v Superman has a three hour-long director's cut, and Suicide Squad apparently slashed a ton of Joker scenes, something Jared Leto has repeatedly lamented. But the fact that a Wonder Woman director's cut isn't really possible is great news for Jenkins, who didn't have to make any concessions for the theatrical version.

It's apparently upset Warner Bros. though, as she said they're having trouble adding special features to the DVD:

"We've got the DVD now, they keep wanting to put cut scenes and there aren't any.

Every scene in Wonder Woman comes to theaters on June 2, 2017.
