The studio will pay a price for underestimating her - sources report that while Jenkins made about a million on the first movie, she will rake in between $7-9 million dollars for writing and directing Wonder Woman 2, and will also have a considerable cut of the backend.
Jenkins came on to Wonder Woman as a replacement for director Michelle McLaren, who left the project over creative differences. Gal Gadot will also reprise the role of the Amazon Princess for a December 13th, 2019 release date. "We've got a cool idea for the second one".
Wonder Woman took the world by storm this past summer, netting $409 million at the box office domestically and $813 million worldwide.
A sequel was greenlit nearly immediately after Wonder Woman surprised Hollywood with its extraordinary reviews and opening weekend, with star Gal Gadot set to return.
