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

Thankfully, we now have confirmation.

Gadot took to Instagram to share a peek behind the scenes with her fans, posting a montage of various mistakes that happened while she was filming the first Wonder Woman film with costar Chris Pine and director Patty Jenkins.

The director is more than deserving of a lucrative contract, considering the global critical and commercial success of "Wonder Woman", which soared to an worldwide haul of more than $800 million. The movie almost single-handedly restored faith in the DCEU, and the upcoming Justice League movie may have undergone extensive reshoots to cast Wonder Woman in a more prominent light. Jenkins was already working with DC head honcho Geoff Johns on the script, so her return to the franchise has been speculated for some time. The superhero is also rumored to appear in the Flashpoint movie.

Jenkins came on to Wonder Woman as a replacement for director Michelle McLaren, who left the project over creative differences.

It turns out that Jenkins was hard at work on making sure she was paid adequately for what she achieved as the director of Wonder Woman. It's now the highest-grossing flick, domestically, of Warner Bros.'s recent batch of DCEU films, beating out "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice". Jenkins reportedly made about $1 million for directing the first film.

Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. The goal is to make another great Wonder Woman film. "We've got a cool idea for the second one". By every account I've read, the cast adored Jenkins, and I do too. The sequel is slated to open in December 2019.
