Patty Jenkins Still Not Signed On For Wonder Woman Sequel

Patty Jenkins Still Not Signed On For Wonder Woman Sequel

"Then I realized that Wonder Woman 2 is its own great movie". Her domestic cume now stands at $115M. "Wonder Woman" opening weekend has definitely proven that a sequel could be another hit for the female-led franchise.

"Any ridiculous notion that a woman may not be suited to direct a big budget superhero movie is hopefully once and for all shattered", he said. The actress posted a video to Facebook on Wednesday (June 7) thanking fans for making Wonder Woman the sensation that it is. In the end, bolstered by rapturous reviews, the film opened to over $100 million, meaning that Jenkins now has a tremendous amount of leverage when it comes to negotiating a pay raise.

He continued, "There are men in the world and women in the world, it will be nice for young girls and boys to see an image of something else, besides a man in a cape", referring to male superheroes such as Batman and Superman.

Given the film's incredible success - with critics, with fans, with just about everyone - it seems all but guaranteed that Jenkins will return for the sequel. Jenkins was only signed for one film, but that means if Jenkins' representatives wanted, they could force Warner pay millions of dollars more to keep her on board.

Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot speaking at the 2016 San Diego Comic Con International, for "Wonder Woman", at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California. "Wonder Woman" also broke the record for the most successful opening weekend for a movie directed by a woman. Wonder Woman made 228 Mil USD worldwide in its opening weekend and broke the record for the highest grossing movie directed by a female. Have you seen the film? Jenkins says she embodies love, justice, kindness and independent thinking. Hulk depicter Mark Ruffalo cheered on the movie, while "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" director James Gunn sent "many congrats" to "Wonder Woman" helmer Patty Jenkins. When she got the part, she got to step onto a film set with the likes of Patty Jenkins, Connie Nielsen, and, of course, Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot.
