Though Warner Bros. declined to comment on Jenkins' salary for the next film, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter her take home would range between the $7 million to $9 millon mark.

Director Patty Jenkins is back to helm the smash hit's sequel, and thank goodness, because I didn't want to have to riot over this.

In June, Variety reported that Jenkins was working with DC's Geoff Johns to develop a script for the sequel. "She's Wonder Woman. She's got to come to America". It set the Interwebs ablaze with speculation: why would Jenkins not return to the film that rocketed the DCEU into the critically beloved superhero movie stratosphere after Warner Bros. struggled to make Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad both critical and commercial hits?

#WonderWomanwas a labor of love for Patty Jenkins, and the result was a success beyond anyone's expectation.


Available now on Digital HD and September 19 on Blu-ray and DVD, Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot as Diana, Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Robin Wright as General Antiope, Danny Huston as General Erich Ludendorff, David Thewlis as Ares, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Elena Anaya as Doctor Poison, and Lucy Davis as Etta Candy. Gal Gadot will also reprise the role of the Amazon Princess for a December 13th, 2019 release date.

"Wonder Woman" also stars Pine as Captain Steve Trevor, Connie Nielsen as Hippolyta, Robin Wright as Antiope, Danny Huston as General Erich Ludendorff, Saïd Taghmaoui as Sameer, Ewen Bremner as Charlie, Eugene Brave Rock as Chief Napi, and Lucy Davis as Etta Candy.

The director is more than deserving of a lucrative contract, considering the global critical and commercial success of "Wonder Woman", which soared to an worldwide haul of more than $800 million.
