Patty Jenkins Will Return to Direct 'Wonder Woman 2'

Patty Jenkins Will Return to Direct 'Wonder Woman 2'

'Wonder Woman' hits movie theaters around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins.

It basically seemed like a foregone conclusion, and now it's official: Patty Jenkins will be back to direct Wonder Woman 2. Its star, Gal Gadot, inspired major fan meltdowns at Comic-Con.

When movies do exceptionally well, like Wonder Woman did, studios will often rush a sequel announcement and stage a full promotional blitz.

Star Gal Gadot will also reprise her role as the Amazonian warrior in the sequel, which is scheduled to hit theaters in December 2019.

Wonder Woman has earned $410.5 million at the North American box office, to become the top-performing film domestically in the DC Extended Universe. "Wonder Woman", the franchise has finally locked down the film's director to helm the inevitable sequel.

Jenkins who initially signed the deal for only one "Wonder Woman" movie, will also be given a fair share of the box-office earnings of the sequel. It would give them a different competitive edge on Marvel, who have so far only made solo movies about male superheroes.

How much will Patty Jenkins earn from the sequel?

Wonder Woman sustained success throughout the summer. In an interview with the Toronto Sun over a month before the film's June 2 release, she was already planning Diana Prince's next steps. However, Jenkins was only signed on for one film at the time. When her whip glowed and her shield reflected bullets, it showed the hard work put into making the special effects look incredible. We all know that Diana has basically gone incognito by the time BvS rolls out, so perhaps something in the movie will give us a look on why Wonder Woman chose to stop her super-heroing.
