Patty Jenkins was already hard at work on a script for the sequel prior to her finalizing the agreement to direct the upcoming installment.
Gal Gadot had already confirmed that she would be back in the Wonder Woman sequel. With Jenkins back at the directing and writing wheel, I think we can be confident that great care will be taken moving forward in the the Wonder Woman sequel.
