Patty Jenkins closes $7+ million deal to direct Wonder Woman 2

13 September 2017

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jenkins has signed a high seven-figure deal to both write a direct the movie.

After months and months of deliberating- and hoping that the studios would come to their senses- we finally have the answer we've been all waiting to hear: Patty Jenkins WILL direct the Wonder Woman sequel! Personally, I trust in Patty's vision for the character and I think she will do unbelievable with the sequel.

Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. And that's not all: It is reported that Jenkins will have a substantial share of box office grosses of the sequel as well.

Joining her is actress Gal Gadot to reprise her role as the titular character.

Gal Gadot, the star of the first film, is already signed on for Wonder Woman 2, whose release has been scheduled for December 13, 2019.

WONDER WOMAN became an immediate hit earning over $103 million in its opening weekend, Jenkins and her camp found themselves in a very enviable position. The movie made over $800 million globally.

Reports confirm that Jenkins will be back for Wonder Woman 2.

"Wonder Woman", the fourth film in Warner Bros' current iteration of DC Comics' cinematic franchise, helped boost profits for Warner Bros' parent company Time Warner Inc.

Johns said the overall goal was to "make another great "Wonder Woman" film, and we have no doubt that the team will do a great job!"

Among the four DCEU movies, which include "Suicide Squad" and "Man of Steel", the movie had the lowest budget-though the highest for a female director-at $150 million.

Meanwhile, Jenkins is also busy developing her new TNT TV series with Chris Pine which is supposed to be an autobiography of Faunal Hodel.

This is monumental, as it proves that females can direct superhero epics and they deserve to earn as much as their male counterparts.
