The film is set to hit theaters on December 13th, 2019
Patty Jenkins has officially signed on to direct the film Wonder Woman sequel. Warner Bros. first announced Wonder Woman 2 earlier this summer at San Diego Comic-Con. Also confirming soon after that Gal Gadot would return to play Diana Prince / Wonder Woman.
At the time, Jenkins had only signed on to direct the first movie, and since then she’s reportedly been negotiating with the studio over her pay. The delay came down to Jenkins’ expectation that she be paid “substantially more” than she was the first time around.
This shouldn’t come as any surprise: Wonder Woman became the highest-grossing, live-action movie directed by a woman, ever, which undoubtedly gave Jenkins an edge at the negotiating table.
Jenkins is reportedly working on the film script with Geoff Johns, president of DC Comics.
