Patty Jenkins will return to direct Wonder Woman sequel

Patty Jenkins will return as director for Wonder Woman 2, it has been confirmed.

Jenkins helmed the first Wonder Woman movie, which starred Gal Gadot and was a massive hit at the box office this summer.

The sequel was recently confirmed at Comic-Con and has a release date of December 13, 2019.

Gadot – who first made her appearance as Wonder Woman in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice – has also been confirmed to return.

Jenkins’ return has now been confirmed following what were described as “challenging” talks between the director and Warner Bros.

According to reports, Jenkins will be paid between $7 million and $9 million to direct and write, making her the highest-paid female filmmaker in history.

Wonder Woman raked in £621m worldwide this summer and had the best opening ever for a film by a female director.

Earlier this year, Jenkins tweeted about her desire to make Wonder Woman 2.

“Now I want to make Wonder Woman 2,” she wrote. “It’s a beautiful story to tell, an important time to tell it and with people that I love.”
