Wonder Woman officially arrived in theaters last week and has already been a major success from both a box office perspective as well as critically. While a sequel will surely happen with Gal Gadot signed on to return to the role of Diana Prince, director Patty Jenkins is currently not signed on.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. will soon begin negotiations with the director to return for the Wonder Woman sequel. Jenkins was only signed on for the first installment and according to Hollywood Reporter, she could potentially be getting an expansive deal with DC and Warner Bros.
“Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.”
Directed by Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman also stars Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Lucy Davis as Etta Candy, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Robin Wright as General Antiope, Lisa Loven Kongsli as Menalippe, Danny Huston as General Erich Ludendorff, David Thewlis as Sir Patrick Morgan, Elena Anaya as Doctor Maru, Ewen Bremner as Charlie, Saïd Taghmaoui as Sameer and Eugene Brave Rock as the Chief. The screenplay was written by Jenkins, Allan Heinberg and DC Films’ co-head Geoff Johns, with story by Heinberg and Justice League director Zack Snyder.
