After months of negotiations, Patty Jenkins is officially returning to direct the Wonder Woman sequel, which will make her the highest paid female director of all time.

The Hollywood Reporter reports the deal is "precedent-setting", adding that the negotiations leading to it were reportedly "challenging."

Despite the record-breaking success, rumours of Jenkins' negotiations with Warner Brothers have been circulating for months.

The sequel is set to be released in December 2019, with Israeli actor Gal Gadot reprising her role of Diana Prince / Wonder Woman.

"I do feel the 'nobody thought she could succeed', and now I think 'let's show the world that's wrong, let's show the world that's not true' - you were wrong about Wonder Woman, maybe you were wrong about women leading a film."
