It’s Official: Patty Jenkins Will Return To Direct WONDER WOMAN 2

We've even got a release date.

According to Variety, it is done:

"Patty Jenkins has closed a deal to direct the sequel to the summer hit Wonder Woman.

Gal Gadot has already signed on to return in the title role. The film is slated for release on Dec. 13, 2019."

Yes, the inevitable has occurred: Patty Jenkins will be back for Wonder Woman 2. to be based on the script she's co-authored with DC's Geoff Johns. As of now, there's no real indication what kind of story Wonder Woman 2 might end up telling, but we're guessing that - much like the first film - it'll have tangential ties to the other goings-on in the DCEU. Or, hey, maybe it'll be a standalone thing. WB seems hot on that approach lately. 

We'll have to wait and see. In the meantime, Wonder Woman (which, it's worth noting, racked up over $400M at the domestic box office and over $800M worldwide) hits Blu-ray and DVD on September 19th. We'll be watching it on report while we wait for further Wonder Woman 2 updates.
