It’s Official! Patty Jenkins Will Return to Direct Wonder Woman 2!
With Warner Bros.‘ Wonder Woman arriving onto Blu-ray and DVD next week, The Hollywood Reporter has brought word that Patty Jenkins will return to direct Wonder Woman 2! Because Jenkins was only contracted for one movie, which went on to gross a wondrous $816 million worldwide, she was able to leverage a deal making her the highest-paid female filmmaker in history, earning between $7 and $9 million plus a healthy chunk of the back-end gross for the sequel. That seems only fair given that Wonder Woman has outgrossed all three previous DC Extended Universe movies (Man of Steel, Batman v Superman, Suicide Squad) domestically and is the first to receive critical acclaim.
Previously best known for directing the Oscar-winning Monster and AMC’s The Killing, Jenkins has already begun co-writing the screenplay for Wonder Woman 2 with co-chairman of DC Films Geoff Johns, which she has previously stated will take Diana to America. Gal Gadot has already signed on to reprise her role in the second solo film, which is slated for release on December 13, 2019.
Wonder Woman is now available from digital retailers, and will be available on Ultra HD Blu-ray for $44.95, Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack for $44.95, Blu-ray Combo Pack for $35.99 and DVD for $28.98 on September 19. The Ultra HD Blu-ray features an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc with the theatrical version in 4K with HDR and a Blu-ray disc also featuring the theatrical version. The Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack features the theatrical version of the film in 3D hi-definition and hi-definition; the Blu-ray Combo Pack features the theatrical version of the film in hi-definition on Blu-ray; and the DVD features the theatrical version in standard definition. The Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack and Blu-ray Combo Pack will include a digital version of the movie with UltraViolet.
Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
Gal Gadot stars in the title role of Wonder Woman, which also stars Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Connie Nielsen, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner, Lucy Davis, Lisa Loven Kongsli, Saïd Taghmaoui and Eugene Brave Rock. The film was produced by Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, Zack Snyder and Richard Suckle, with Stephen Jones, Geoff Johns, Jon Berg, Wesley Coller and Rebecca Steel Roven serving as executive producers.
