It is finally official, American film director and screenwriter Patty Jenkins has closed the deal to return as the director for Wonder Woman sequel.
The good news finally arrives after a lengthy negotiation process, since Jenkins was only signed for one movie, which went on to gross $410.5 million in the United States & Canada with $405.8 million from other territories for a worldwide total of $816.3 million, against a production budget of $149 million.
She was able to leverage the final deal setting a historic paradigm as it makes her the highest paid female director of all the time.
Jenkins made the right decision by asking for a increase, since Wonder Woman is the second highest-grossing film of the year (behind Beauty and the Beast) and the best film in the DC Extended Universe. It also went on to surpass the Box Office gross of all three DCEU movies including Man of Steel ($668 million), Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ($873 million) and Suicide Squad ($745 million).
Patty Jenkins has reportedly already begun work on the sequel, she will direct and co-write with Geoff Johns.
