Geez, who could have guessed?

Warner Bros. Pictures

After months of negotiations, Variety is reporting that Petty Jenkins will return to direct the Wonder Woman sequel.

In June, Variety reported that Jenkins was working with DC’s Geoff Johns to develop a script for the sequel. Until then, Jenkins had been asked about her role in the sequel multiple times, but never admitted she was working on anything. Prior to the report, Jenkins told Entertainment Weekly she would set the potential sequel in the United States instead of Europe and it would be another period piece.

Jenkins will reunite with Gal Gadot, the actress who played Wonder Woman in the stand-alone film and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. When asked by Polygon if Jenkins helped with maintaining the character’s tone in Justice League, Jenkins confirmed she had very little input.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jenkins will earn between $7 million and $9 million for her directorial and written work on the sequel. Jenkins was paid $1 million for her directing duties on Wonder Woman.

The Wonder Woman sequel, which doesn’t have a name at this time, is slated to be released on Dec. 13, 2019.
