After the financial and critical success of Wonder Woman’s opening weekend, Warner Brothers are going to have to get their cheque book out.
The movie grossed over $100m in the US alone and has performed well at the box office worldwide.
It has since emerged that Jenkins was only offered a one movie deal, as is standard practice at Warner Brothers for a director on a big budget movie for the first time. Jenkins only previous directing credit was for her 2003 release Monster.
Both sides are due to begin negotiating shortly and with the movie’s star Gal Gadot already signed up for the next installment, Warner Brothers will be more than keen to keep a winning combination together.
This gives Jenkins increased leverage and means she is likely to command a much-improved salary. We think she deserves every penny.
