Patty Jenkins made history when her most recent directorial offering, Wonder Woman, broke box office records this summer. Obviously, no one disclosed the deal tag but it is estimated to be around $7 million to $9 million!

Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins has finalised her deal to take charge of Wonder Woman 2, making her the highest-paid female director ever.

After Wonder Woman 2 was confirmed a couple months ago, Jenkins had teased that the superhero might be seen in the United States this time. Besides the "Wonder Women" sequel, Jenkins is developing a TNT TV series with Pine. The total domestic collection went up to $402 million while the global collection of the film went past $800 million. It isn't a huge shock, since the studio and the director have been in negotiations for a while and Jenkins has been very vocal about her plans for the future. Jenkins was paid $1 million for her directing duties on Wonder Woman.
