Patty Jenkins is back to direct Wonder Woman sequel

Although it is not exactly a huge surprise, as the talks of her involvement in Wonder Woman sequel have been in the air from the movie’s early development, director Patty Jenkins is now officially signing her deal to direct the upcoming Wonder Woman 2 movie.

Despite the mixed response from the critics, the first Wonder Woman was a big success so it was only a matter of time before Warner Bros. made sure Jenkins is back to reprise her services as the main lady behind the camera.

Also, it was reported that the studio has offered Jenkins a pretty hefty raise in order to secure her involvement in the sequel. According to Empire, this raise put her on a “much-deserved par with her male colleagues in terms of earnings.”
