Wonder Woman experienced a summer of record-breaking box office success and inspired audiences as the first female-led superhero film in both the DC Extended Universe and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Director Patty Jenkins has discussed how Richard Donner’s Superman: The Movie influenced both her career and her approach to Wonder Woman with many praising the latter film for capturing the same inspiring and optimistic spirit of Donner’s superhero classic. Now, Donner has honored Jenkins by literally presenting her with a Superman-themed baton he had made specifically for her. Jenkins shared an image of the moment on her official Twitter account:

Patty Jenkins will be carrying that baton as the director of Wonder Woman 2, which is due to be released in theaters on December 13, 2019.

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, the film stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, David Thewlis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner and Saïd Taghmaoui.

Wonder Woman is now available on Digital HD, Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD.
