Wonder Woman, was the first stand-alone movie to star a female superhero since 2005's box office dud Elektra, and the first to be directed by a woman.

Following the first movie's humungous box office success at the start of the summer, it's unsurprising that director Patty Jenkins has been asked to take the reigns again. She was already attached to the film and has been at work on the script with DC Entertainment's Geoff Johns.

Although there had always been talks with the director on the subject, given the success scored by Wonder Woman, Jenkins tried to "squeeze" a bigger pay check from the producers.

Jenkins, 46, will once again direct Israeli actress Gal Gadot in Wonder Woman 2, scheduled for release on Dec 13, 2019. Before the deal was closed, Jenkins only had a contract for one film.

The huge success can be attributed to the movie's director Patty Jenkins, who replaced Michelle McLauren due to some creative differences. Since its release, the combo has been requested to return for another film.

"Wonder Woman" had been an unexpected surprise in the box office as it successfully reached the $800 million mark internationally.

The sequel remains to be in production by Warner Bros. has announced that it is scheduled to land in theaters by December 13, 2019.

"Wonder Woman", that was directed by Patty Jenkins, is also the highest grossing film directed by a woman after surpassing "Mamma Mia!" by Phyllida Lloyd.
