We all knew that Patty Jenkins would be back to direct Wonder Woman 2. Warner Bros. would be stupid not to have brought her back! But today it's been announced the deal is officially done and she will reteam with Gal Gadot, who previously signed on to reprise the title role.
Jenkins has already been working on the script with Geoff Johns, who oversees all of the DC films for Warner Bros. Their goal is obviously to make a great Wonder Woman sequel.
There have been rumors that the sequel could possibly be a spy film that would see Wonder Woman fighting during the Cold War in the 1980s. It's an interesting premise that I hope turns out to be true.
Jenkins did such an incredible job with that first film and I can't wait to see what exactly she is planning for the sequel. I'm happy that she will be back to work on the sequel, and there's no doubt she ended up getting an epic pay increase in the process. After all, she did make the most successful DCEU movie.
Wonder Woman 2 is set to be released on December 13th, 2019.
