'Wonder Woman' bosses have hired three legendary writers for the sequel.

Patty Jenkins - who helmed the hit movie starring Gal Gadot earlier this year - reportedly signed a deal last week to front the follow up, but she won't be doing it alone as she will team up with DC Entertainment's creative chief Geoff Johns and David Callaham, who co-wrote the action movie 'The Expendables', according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Details of the plot for the second film are being kept tightly under wraps but Jenkins recently said she's keen to jump forward several decades from the first movie, which is set in Europe during WW1, and have it take place in America during the Cold War.

Patty Jenkins lassos huge pay rise to direct Wonder Woman 2

  Patty Jenkins lassos huge pay rise to direct Wonder Woman 2 Patty Jenkins is officially on board to direct and co-write DC superhero sequel Wonder Woman 2 for release in December 2019. Her deal with Warner Bros makes her the highest paid female film director in history. The Hollywood Reporter claims she'll earn "somewhere in the $7-9m range" to continue the solo story of Gal Gadot's Diana Prince, after the first film proved to be one of the summer's biggest hits. With a worldwide box office haul of $816m and a domestic gross making it even bigger than last year's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, a sequel and the return of Jenkins was inevitable. Jenkins has reportedly begun work on the script with Geoff Johns, co-chairman and co-runner of Warner Bros DC Extended Universe (DCEU) of films that began with 2013's Man of Steel and also includes Suicide Squad. The first film was an origin tale set during the First World War. The sequel is rumoured to take place in the 1980s during the Cold War. Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Jenkins revealed that the film will see Wonder Woman travel to the United States. "The story will take place in the U.S., which I think is right," the director said. "She's Wonder Woman. She's got to come to America. It's time." Negotiations between Jenkins and Warner Bros were said to be "challenging", with Jenkins looking for a bumper pay rise after making $1m from the first film.

Really the writers say that there might be a chance that he might come back because apparently they want to move on. Sure, in terms of the continuity it doesn't make sense. Maybe don't conceder this being a sequel , more a new Wonder Woman movie.

It was recently reported that Jenkins is set to earn around $8 million to write, direct and produce the much-anticipated film, which will make her the highest paid female director of all time, and she will also earn a percentage of the box office sales.

Rumours of Jenkins' return to the franchise come shortly after the director admitted to being shocked by the positive reaction to 'Wonder Woman'.

The moviemaker revealed she was expecting a "mixed bag" from fans and critics, but the reaction to the superhero film has been overwhelmingly positive.

She explained: "I went into the release of the movie assuming it would be, in best case, a mixed bag. And I sort of braced myself for it, where I thought, well, 'Listen, you're doing a beloved superhero; it's always going to end up being at least 40 percent, oh you could have done, blah blah blah.'"

She's also thrilled about how much 'Wonder Woman' has prompted debates about gender equality issues.

She said: "The support and positivity that the movie has received, and also just the people wanting to talk about what we wanted to talk about in the movie and not other things, has been stunning."
