As director Jenkins signs up, Gal Gadot heads to 'Wonder Woman 2'

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

Patty Jenkins (right) an Codnnie Nielsen on the set of Wonder Woman. While that means Warner Bros. didn't lock her down for a sequel beforehand, it hopefully means Jenkins was able to get a better deal. The director is being paid a whopping $8-9 million for her duties in Wonder Woman 2!

Patty Jenkins is officially back on board to direct "Wonder Woman 2" for Warner Bros...

Jenkins is also in the middle of developing a TNT TV series with Wonder Woman's Chris Pine, inspired by the autobiography of Fauna Hodel. It later showed it had legs, earning $402 million domestically and over $800 million worldwide.

She tweeted: 'James Cameron's inability to understand what Wonder Woman is, or stands for, to women all over the world is unsurprising as, though, he is a great filmmaker, he is not a woman'. Wonder Woman has also become a box office hit, cumulating $816.3 million during its run.

The DC Extended Universe has been a mess ever since it began, but one bright shining light in the darkness of their films has been Wonder Woman.

It's a huge leap from her US$1 million paycheque for the insanely successful first instalment, which grossed over US$800 million worldwide and is now the 12th highest-grossing superhero movie of all time.

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

While the news was expected following the rave reviews to Wonder Woman, it is Jenkins' pay packet that has left many agape.

Along with Jenkins, we are obviously delighted to see Gal Gadot return to the title role. The film made over $409 million at the domestic box office on only a $150 million budget making it a very successful film for the studio.

Her salary for the sequel is on par with the amount of money Zack Snyder received for directing Man of Steel.
