The Oscar winner will be very right at home, along with Gal Gadot, as she has earned a reputation for her ability to handle feminist and action movies as evidenced by her roles in the movies “Thelma and Louise,” “Marjorie Prime” and “Cutthroat Island.”

Patty Jenkins’ big raise

In other “Wonder Woman 2” news, it seems Warner Brothers Pictures is fighting hard to keep Patty Jenkins in the franchise. Film School Rejects reports that Jenkins is in the final stages of negotiations to direct the second movie in the series.

It may be possible that Jenkins will be able to negotiate as much as $10 million for helming the picture, almost the same amount that fellow DC director Zack Snyder was paid. She may also get a 10 percent cash break along with her salary.

Even without that, Jenkins is already the highest-grossing female director of all time and her deal may signal a positive shift for other female directors in the game.
