Los Angeles — Patty Jenkins has officially signed on to direct the sequel to Wonder Woman.

A Warner Bros. representative confirmed Jenkins' return on Monday after Variety first reported the news.

Jenkins was widely expected to return for the sequel after Wonder Woman became both a critical success and a global hit at the box office earning over $816m worldwide this summer. Negotiations took months to finalise a deal for Jenkins' return.

The Hollywood Reporter writes that her deal, which is reported to be in the $7 to $9m range, makes Jenkins the highest-paid female filmmaker in history. The studio declined comment on Jenkins' pay.

Star Gal Gadot will also reprise her role as the Amazonian warrior in the sequel, which is scheduled to hit theatres in December 2019.
