Patty
Jenkins

Film Director

Jenkins is something of a wonder woman herself, becoming the first female director to helm a major comic-book franchise movie and proving at the box office that there was demand — a lot of it — for a female superhero. “Wonder Woman” grossed more than $800 million worldwide and burnished the reputation of the DC cinematic universe by winning over critics that had long turned up their noses at such comic fare. It took almost 15 years after Jenkins’ last film, “Monster,” with Oscar winner Charlize Theron, to break that glass ceiling, but she’s seizing her moment, helming next year’s sequel “Wonder Woman 1984” for a cool $9 million and re-teaming with “Wonder Woman” star Chris Pine for TNT’s six-episode miniseries “I Am the Night.”
