Patty Jenkins will be back to direct “Wonder Woman 2,” and she will reportedly receive $8 million for it. Warner Bros.

It is finally confirmed: Patty Jenkins is on board directing the next “Wonder Woman” film, which will once again star Gal Gadot as the titular character.

But how much will Jenkins get for the sequel? According to Variety, no exact figure can be given. However, sources said that it’s around $8 million for Jenkins to write, direct and produce the sequel. This will make her the highest-paid female director of all time.

Jenkins earlier said that she’ll return for the sequel not because she feels obligated to see the franchise through, but because she loves working with the entire cast. “I’m not a big obligation person when it comes to art. You want to do a movie like this because you believe in it,” she told Entertainment Weekly. “Then I had this revelation in the middle of the night: this is your dream cast, you’ve created a character that you love and you can say anything you want in the world right now.”

Jenkins added, “Then I realized that ‘Wonder Woman 2’ is its own great movie. I made ‘Wonder Woman.’ Now I want to make ‘Wonder Woman 2.’ It’s a beautiful story to tell, an important time to tell it and with people that I love.”

One thing’s for certain: the next movie will bring Diana Prince to America. “The story will take place in the U.S., which I think is right,” Jenkins said. “She’s Wonder Woman. She’s got to come to America. It’s time.”

Steve Trevor’s (Chris Pine) men — Sameer (Said Taghmaoui), Charlie (Ewen Bremner) and Chief (Eugene Brave Rock) — together with his secretary, Etta Candy (Lucy Davis), might even be back to carry out a top secret mission to save mankind. In a deleted scene from the theatrical release, the four of them talked about a “very old, very powerful” artifact that needs to be delivered to the Americans. If it ends up in the wrong hands, the said artifact would cause a lot of trouble for the world.

“Wonder Woman 2” has been scheduled for release on Dec. 19, 2019.
