Patty Jenkins will direct 'Wonder Woman' sequel and we're only delighted

Jenkins will direct, co-write and produce.

The announcement comes at the end of a summer filled with speculation that Jenkins was renegotiating her return with Warner Bros., an evidently long process that nonetheless seems to have resulted in a monumental deal for the director.

A sequel was greenlit nearly immediately after Wonder Woman surprised Hollywood with its extraordinary reviews and opening weekend, with star Gal Gadot set to return.

Patty Jenkins, director of the record-breaking "Wonder Woman", has secured a deal to direct the film's sequel, Variety reports.

Last month, Jenkins had taken to task Titanic director James Cameron who had described Wonder Woman in an interview as "an objectified icon" and the film as a 'step backwards'.

X-37B, an approximately 5,000 kg reusable spaceplane, could remain in orbit for as long as two years, and possibly even longer. What makes it more interesting is that the rocket is scheduled to take off despite forecasts of the Hurricane Irma .

Jenkins' initial deal was only for one movie, when she was signed to replace Michelle McLaren.

Wonder Woman has become one of the biggest superhero movies in history, earning $410 million in the U.S. and another $405 million overseas.

With the film receiving praise from Deadpool amusing guy Ryan Reynolds, to movie-goers who were in awe of this beautifully feminist moment, it's no surprise that Wonder Woman is set for a sequel. That would seemingly kill any possibility of her taking over on Star Wars 9 as well, which is a shame but a definite boost for the DCEU sequel.

"Wonder Woman 2" has been scheduled for release on December 19, 2019.

All of this sounds like good news to me: the possibility of more actually decent DC films, more successful female directors and lead characters in Hollywood, and less and less Zack Snyder. The others are Marvel movies, Avengers: Age of Ultron (number 3, with $459 million), and The Avengers (still number 1, with $623 million). Backend box office grosses are also reportedly included in the contract as well.
