Patty Jenkins Officially Signs On To Direct ‘Wonder Woman’ Sequel

When you deliver a movie that becomes the highest-grossing domestic film in the DC Extended Universe, not to mention the best-reviewed among the bunch, and fifth highest-grossing domestic superhero film in history, it’s the movie studio’s number one priority to lure you back. That’s exactly what Warner Bros did and shelled out a pretty penny to do so.

Variety reports that Patty Jenkins will earn a figure in the neighborhood of $8 million to return to direct the sequel, making her the highest paid female director of all time. Jenkins will also earn a substantial backend of box office grosses as part of her contract.

With Jenkins back, the 46-year-old director stands a good chance of breaking her own record, delivering the highest-grossing film directed by a woman. The origin film kicked off with a stellar $103.3 million. Wonder Woman grossed $409 million at the domestic box office and $813 million worldwide. Gal Gadot returns as Diana Prince on December 13, 2019.

Excited that Jenkins is back or were you hoping another director would step in? Weigh in below.
