Watch: Patty Jenkins on "Wonder Woman's" Stunning Success

Patty Jenkins is back in a big way...

The Wonder Woman director has officially sealed the deal to direct the sequel to the summer's supersized hit, E! News can confirm.

Variety, who was first to report the story, couldn't reveal the director's exact salary, but the outlet reports that sources say that Jenkins' payday to write, direct and produce the sequel is likely in the $8 million dollar range. Additionally, the 46-year-old director is slated to take home a large back-end portion of box office.

If reports are true, the number makes her the highest paid female director in history (Nancy Meyer was believed to have made $5 million in her heyday). Talk about a wonder woman!

The news that she's captaining the sequel to the genre-defying flick doesn't come as a huge shock as Jenkins was already working on the script with Geoff Johns, president and Chief Creative Officer at DC Comics, but WW fans will be happy to hear the movie is officially in Jenkins' capable hands.

Of the script, Johns has said to Variety, "The goal is to make another great Wonder Woman film."

Gal Gadot has already inked her deal to take on the role of lasso of truth-wearing Diana Prince once again.

Wonder Woman, which had a budget of $150 million, was a smashing success, grossing $409 million domestically and $813 million internationally.

Oprah Winfrey and Lupita Nyong'o are just some of the vocal celeb supporters of the first film.

The Wonder Woman sequel is set for release on Dec. 13, 2019.
