Patty Jenkins officially confirmed to direct 'Wonder Woman 2'

It basically seemed like a foregone conclusion, and now it's official: Patty Jenkins will be back to direct Wonder Woman 2. Jenkins will direct, co-write and produce.

It makes her the highest paid female director in Hollywood history.

According to THR, Jenkins will get a seven figure ($7-9 million) pay for her part as director and a writer. In addition to Gadot, it stars Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Connie Nielsen, and Elena Anaya. It later showed it had legs, earning $402 million domestically and over $800 million worldwide.

Jenkins is also known for writing and directing the 2003 crime drama movie Monster, about a former prostitute who was executed in 2002 for killing six men.

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.

Jenkins' Wonder Woman was the DC Extended Universe's first unqualified success, managing to both make money and do well critically.

With the film receiving praise from Deadpool amusing guy Ryan Reynolds, to movie-goers who were in awe of this beautifully feminist moment, it's no surprise that Wonder Woman is set for a sequel. Backend box office grosses are also reportedly included in the contract as well.

The movie-maker revealed she was expecting a "mixed bag" from fans and critics, but the reaction to the superhero film has been overwhelmingly positive.

Gadot was already signed for the sequel, which is due December 13, 2019.

Her salary for the sequel is on par with the amount of money Zack Snyder received for directing Man of Steel. It would give them a different competitive edge on Marvel, who have so far only made solo movies about male superheroes.
