Patty Jenkins will direct 'Wonder Woman 2'

Patty Jenkins

Last month, Jenkins had taken to task Titanic director James Cameron who had described Wonder Woman in an interview as "an objectified icon" and the film as a 'step backwards'.

There is little doubt that the film wouldn't have achieved such instantaneous blockbuster status without Gadot's on-camera charisma, and she's as celebrated overseas as she is at home - where she is touted as one of Israel's best exports. In the DCEU, Gal Gadot is the only female superhero introduced so far, though Warner Brothers is working hard to catch up with Joss Whedon's idea for a Batgirl movie.

Being the very first woman super hero film, Gal Gadot starrer 'Wonder Woman' has received a thunderous response from all over the world. Wonder Woman also ranks as one of the summer's highest-grossing films after having become the highest-earning superhero origin film.

THR says that this deal was based on a precedent established by Wonder Woman's overwhelming success at the box office and with critics.

Sopore encounter: Security forces kill one militant, operation underway
An encounter broke out between the security forces and militants in Sopore of Baramulla district of north Kashmir on Saturday. The development comes on a day when Home Minister Rajnath Singh is scheduled to visit the state.

Jenkins, 46, will once again direct Israeli actress Gal Gadot as the superhero in "Wonder Woman 2", scheduled for release on December 13, 2019, publications including Variety and Hollywood Reporter said. Now, Jenkins will return to direct and co-write, and has reportedly already begun work on the script with Geoff Johns. Early reviews praised the film's hope and optimism, along with a honest portrayal of the titular character.

Following the spectacular win, the Warner Bros has confirmed that Wonder Woman 2 is in the making. Snyder, meanwhile, seems intent on dashing their hopes, with his Man of Steel and Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice bogging the franchise down in grimdark overindulgence and intellectually shallow philosophical interpretations of the source material.

But Jenkins only had a deal for one movie. "She's Wonder Woman. She's got to come to America".
