Patty Jenkins has closed a deal to direct the sequel to the summer hit "Wonder Woman". Warner Bros.is probably kicking itself for not having locked both Jenkins and star Gal Gadot in for a series of films at the get-go; they'll be paying dearly for that mistake. She'll be making a whole lot more money for her trouble. According to Variety, Patty Jenkins has officially signed a deal to direct Wonder Woman 2.

The two sides had been in negotiations since the film's debut in June, with a previous Deadline report indicating that the extended negotiations were because of Jenkins asking for equal pay to what male directors would receive in her situation. By locking Jenkins in to write and produce, as well, it seems she'll continue to have a good bit of creative control over the character's direction. Unlike most other DCEU films, Wonder Woman found near-universal acclaim upon its release, grossing $409 million at the domestic box office and $813 million worldwide from its $150 million budget. She previously revealed that "Wonder Woman 2" will see the titular heroine finally journey to America.

Jenkins was only signed on to direct one "Wonder Woman" movie, which led to a tough negotiating process between her reps and the studio as the box-office tally for the movie continued to soar throughout the summer, giving her massive leverage in the talks.
