It has only been a couple of days since the movie "Wonder Woman" hit silver screens around the globe, however, there is already talk about a sequel.

'Wonder Woman': highest-grossing opening for a female director

The success of the movie is undeniable, as it grossed more than $100 million during its opening weekend, which is the highest-grossing opening for a female director ever. Previously, the highest opening weekend for a female director belonged to 50-year-old director Sam Taylor-Johnson for the 2015 movie "Fifty Shades of Grey."

'Wonder Woman 2': Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins not singed for the sequel yet

Although Patty Jenkins has not been confirmed as the director for the sequel, she -- along with the lead actress Gal Gadot -- seems interested in being a part of "Wonder Woman 2." According to Entertainment Weekly, Jenkins said that she would "want to make 'Wonder Woman 2." This action-packed superhero franchise is based on the character created by DC Comics.

Nothing has been confirmed officially, however, the executives at Warner Bros. might want to stick with Jenkins as the director considering the good reviews that the first film has received, and the monetary gains as well. Gal Gadot also has a good chance of returning as the lead actress for the sequel, as her deal with Warner Bros. must have included some clause about appearing in a number of DC movies.

Jenkins' praise for Gal Gadot

Jenkins has previously praised the 32-year-old Gal Gadot, who is an Israeli actress. Patty Jenkins said that "Not only do I believe in her, she blows me away." This was not the first time that Gadot played Wonder Woman, as she also portrayed the superhero back in 2016 in the movie "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice."

The movie might be set in the U.S.

The first movie was set in Europe, but, while talking to Entertainment Weekly, director Patty Jenkins said that she would now like the second film to be based in the United States, "She's Wonder Woman.
