The “Wonder Woman” movie is the best rated DC Comics film since “The Dark Knight” and that’s saying a lot. The success of the film had much to do with director Patty Jenkins, so we’re glad to report that she will retain her role for the sequel.

It’s long been known that “Wonder Woman 2” was a thing at Warner Bros., and that a 2019 date was set for the movie to hit theaters around the world. However, director Patty Jenkins did not sign a formal deal with the studio to return to the director chair until now.

Tough deal to break, but she’s back

According to a report from the Hollywood Reporter, the negotiation between Jenkins and Warner Bros.

was tough, but she came out the winner in the end. As it stands, she will become the highest-paid female director of all time, which is quite the achievement.

Nancy Meyers was the female filmmaker who earned the most, but that will change once “Wonder Woman 2” goes into production come 2018. At the moment, there’s no idea what fans should expect from the next film, but if the first is anything to go by, the second should be a lot of fun.

How much money will Jenkins earn?

According to sources close to the situation, the director will collect a base fee for writing and directing the film. The figures are around $7 million to $9 million, though it could be more. Bear in mind that Jenkins earned $1 million for directing “Wonder Woman,” so $9 million is a huge step up.

In fact, sources claim she was seeking to have an earning similar to Zack Snyder. It’s not possible right now to tell how much he made from “Man of Steel,” and “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” but it’s probably quite a lot.

Women directors finding their footing

There hasn't been a lot of female filmmakers hitting the same level as Patty Jenkins, but that’s expected to change in the coming years.

More women are becoming directors, and many of them have incredible talent. It shouldn’t take long for the world to watch an impressive film that’s directed by a woman, and it could happen before the release of “Wonder Woman 2.”

What’s next for DC?

Warner Bros. is having a ball right now due to the box office success of “IT.” However, things could improve quite a lot should “Justice League” turn out to be far better than other DC movies outside of “Wonder Woman.”

The trailers should give the fans hope, especially with Joss Whedon sharing the director’s chair. As for the future after “Justice League,” the Dc Extended Universe is set to receive “Aquaman” and “Gotham City Sirens.”
