Oh, that's right. Jenkins is coming back to direct the sequel and reports are saying that she's the highest paid female director because of it. Personally, I trust in Patty's vision for the character and I think she will do awesome with the sequel. Lead star Gal Gadot was already wrapped up and now the other major piece of the puzzle is in place with Jenkins signing on to direct the film.
Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. The film has grossed over Rs 25 crore at the Indian box office.
The film, which debuted in June, grossed more than $410 million domestically, according to Box Office Mojo. But finalizing Jenkins as Wonder Woman 2'sdirector took a surprisingly long time given those numbers. She also was involved in two movies which did not make it to fruition, including I Am Superman with Ryan Gosling, a film she recently stated she still hope to make.
Wonder Woman 2 is set for release on 13 December 2019.
As of last weekend, Wonder Woman had surpassed Marvel's Iron Man 3, and is now sitting at number 5 in the all time domestically successful superhero films. However, Jenkins was only signed on for one film at the time. Sources say she had expected to be paid more than or at least on the level of Zack Snyder, who had directed Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. By locking Jenkins in to write and produce, as well, it seems she'll continue to have a good bit of creative control over the character's direction.
Rumours of Patty's return to the franchise come shortly after the director admitted to being shocked by the positive reaction to "Wonder Woman".
