Patty Jenkins, the groundbreaking director of Wonder Woman (and the film that won Charlize her Oscar, Monster) has announced she'll be directing her superhero smash hit's sequel, as well.
"I had an epiphany about Wonder Woman 2," Jenkins said at a Women in Film screening, The Advocatereports. "I was like, you don't have to do this. It doesn't have to be a foregone conclusion that you do Wonder Woman 2."
She continued: "But then as I was falling asleep I had an epiphany. I was like, Wait a minute. You have the greatest character of all time that you love dearly, with a cast that you love sitting at the palm of your hand at this day and age--you can do whatever you want with them--are you crazy? And then I suddenly realized, it's not more, it's another movie. It's its own movie. And it's got to be great."
Jenkins made history when Wonder Woman became the highest-grossing opening weekend film directed by a woman of all time in the US, racking in a whopping $233 million globally and $100.5 million domestically.
Wonder Woman didn't just destroy the competition financially, but wowed critics and audiences alike, currently sitting pretty with a 92 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
