Patty Jenkins Is Officially Back for the Wonder Woman Sequel

Patty Jenkins Is Officially Back for the Wonder Woman Sequel

The Hollywood Reporter followed up by corroborating a figure in the almost-$10 million range, as well as the performance bonus, saying, "Jenkins will receive directing and writing fees in the high seven figures (think somewhere in the $7 to $9 million range) on Wonder Woman 2 but, more significantly, will have a considerable backend".

Patty Jenkins has officially signed on to direct the sequel to "Wonder Woman". Which would make Jenkins the highest-paid female filmmaker in history. By all accounts, this pay will put Jenkins on par with DC Film's male directors; Zack Snyder reportedly earned $10 million for his DC movies. Prior to the report, Jenkins told Entertainment Weekly she would set the potential sequel in the United States instead of Europe and it would be another period piece. Gal Gadot will also reprise the role of the Amazon Princess for a December 13th, 2019 release date.

The full blooper reel is included in the "Wonder Woman" DVD extras, which comes out on Tuesday, Sept. 19.

The first Wonder Woman, released in July, was an instant success, both critically and commercially. Of course, if you purchase the Blu-Ray from Walmart, you'll also manage to get your own wearable Wonder Woman tiara.

Wonder Woman was a runaway - or rather, a flyaway - hit at the box office this summer, raking in $813 million worldwide and shattering records as the highest-grossing live-action film directed by a female director, the highest-grossing DC Extended Universe movie, the highest-grossing superhero origin movie domestically, and the victor of the summer movie season both critically and commercially. But she became an indispensable figure and, along with star Gal Gadot, the face of the movie in the months before its June opening.
