Patty Jenkins Confirmed To Return For Wonder Woman 2

  • It's official: Patty Jenkins will direct 'Wonder Woman 2'

Since the release of Wonder Woman earlier this summer, there's been a lot of talk over whether or not Jenkins would return for the eventual sequel. What we care about is the return of Jenkins-who clearly got Diana and crafted a badass action movie that was also sensitive and smart-and her unique vision coming back to direct Gadot &. Co.

Aside from directing the film, Jenkins is getting a nice pay rise. Just as "Wonder Woman" broke barriers for superhero movies, Jenkins' deal breaks a glass ceiling for female directors. In addition to Gadot, it stars Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Connie Nielsen, and Elena Anaya. Jenkins accomplished what all other Warner Brothers/DC filmmakers have failed to do, she managed to make a DC film that actually rivals the success of their Marvel competitors. It isn't a huge shock, since the studio and the director have been in negotiations for a while and Jenkins has been very vocal about her plans for the future. That seems only fair given that Wonder Woman has outgrossed all three previous DC Extended Universe movies (Man of Steel, Batman v Superman, Suicide Squad) domestically and is the first to receive critical acclaim. The DC (and regular) universe was changed forever when the film, starring Gal Gadot, broke the record for the biggest domestic opening for female directors ever, raking in $100.5 million in the United States in its first weekend, and an overall $800 million globally.

If true, this would make her the highest paid female director in the industry and may pave the way for more female directors to be given large projects like Wonder Woman.


The movie is set to be released on Dec 13, 2019.

"It can't be a replica or a continuation of the first", Jenkins told EW in June, when she was already developing the sequel during negotiations. It recently crossed the $410 million mark in North America, and its overseas box office collection is pegged at over $800 million. And that's not all: It is reported that Jenkins will have a substantial share of box office grosses of the sequel as well.
