Patty Jenkins Will Return to Direct 'Wonder Woman 2'

Patty Jenkins Confirmed as Wonder Woman 2 Director

The news, first reported by Variety, doesn't come as a surprise.

It's a real wonder that Patty Jenkins was not immediately signed up to direct a sequel to "Wonder Woman", after the film smashed box office records this summer to become the highest grossing live action movie directed by a female.

But Jenkins' return, according to Deadline, was waiting on a salary bump to put her on par with a male director, who would be entitled to some serious bucks after the first film's incredible box office showing. It's now the highest-grossing flick, domestically, of Warner Bros.'s recent batch of DCEU films, beating out "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice". "The contract makes Patty Jenkins the highest paid female director in history". Back in June, we learned that Jenkins was already working on the story for the sequel. Prior to the report, Jenkins told Entertainment Weekly she would set the potential sequel in the United States instead of Europe and it would be another period piece.

The full blooper reel is included in the "Wonder Woman" DVD extras, which comes out on Tuesday, Sept. 19. The film is slated for release on December 13, 2019.

It turns out that Jenkins was hard at work on making sure she was paid adequately for what she achieved as the director of Wonder Woman.

The second installment of the DC Comics movie was confirmed earlier this summer at Comic-Con, as was the return of its star Gal Gadot.
