She certainly was a wonder. After the amazing success of Wonder Woman this summer, it was no surprise that a sequel was fast-tracked and saw star Gal Gadot sign up to reprise her role for a fourth time at this year’s Comic Con. But word on director Patty Jenkins was still up in the air but Deadline reports the filmmakers is close to a deal for the sequel.

Now it seems Jenkins is to follow suit by signing on for Wonder Woman 2 with the filmmaker in final talks with Warner Bros and DC about returning. The delay, if there has been a short one, is that Jenkins wants a bigger deal on par with some of the other DC directors and indeed those male directors who have seen a bump in pay after delivering a big opening film. A fresh director, according to the report, gets between $1.5million-$3million while someone like Zack Synder (Man of Steel, Batman V Superman, Justice League) earned around $10million plus bonuses.

Wonder Woman has been the success story of the summer – in amongst the countless sequels, comic-book movies, and tentpole movies, Wonder Woman soared above all others. Opening to a huge $103.2million, the film has gone on to become the highest-grossing film of the summer in the US and has so far grossed almost $800million and is now DC’s and Warner Bros 3rd most successful film in the US behind The Dark Knight ($533million) and The Dark Knight Rises ($448million), the Batman sequels directed by Christopher Nolan and starring Christian Bale.

Gadot will appear in Justice League later this year, opposite Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, J.K. Simmons, Amber Heard, Billy Crudup, Ciaran Hinds and Amy Adams. The film, directed by Snyder and Joss Whedon is released on November 15th.
