It's Official: Patty Jenkins Will Return to Direct 'Wonder Woman 2'

Variety reports that Jenkins recently closed her deal to return for the sequel, which is due in theaters in 2019.

The blooper reel clip is only 19 seconds long, but gives fans a look at the fun that took place between takes, including the famous ice cream scene, as well as the way Gadot and director Patty Jenkins managed to communicate without verbalizing.

Jenkins had previously expressed her own excitement at possibly returning to the director's chair.

The Hollywood Reporter writes that her deal, which is reported to be in the $7 to $9 million range, makes Jenkins the highest-paid female filmmaker in history.

HuffPost has reached out to Warner Bros. and Patty Jenkins' team for comment.

There's no word yet on Jenkins' salary, but she's bound to have negotiated some serious cash. Star Gal Gadot has already signed on to reprise her role as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman.

Wonder Woman was a runaway - or rather, a flyaway - hit at the box office this summer, raking in $813 million worldwide and shattering records as the highest-grossing live-action film directed by a female director, the highest-grossing DC Extended Universe movie, the highest-grossing superhero origin movie domestically, and the victor of the summer movie season both critically and commercially.

In what has been a snoozy and, for the film business, disappointing summer at the box office, "Wonder Woman" stands as a bright spot. The film is slated for release on December 13, 2019.
