Jenkins

Jenkins’ second go-round in the DC Comics universe, “Wonder Woman 1984,” became one of the big cinematic events of the pandemic lockdown in December 2020 when Warner Bros. premiered it on its new streaming service HBO Max the same day it hit theaters. While it wasn’t as well received as 2017’s “Wonder Woman,” the $9 million base salary she received for the film established her as the highest-paid female director in the industry. Now, Jenkins — who first made a name for herself directing Charlize Theron to an Oscar win for best actress as serial killer Aileen Wuornos in 2003’s “Monster” — is set to become the first woman to helm a “Star Wars” movie via “Rogue Squadron,” which is scheduled to begin shooting in 2022 for a Disney release in December 2023.
