Damn right.

Wonder Woman was, by all accounts, a massive hit, which has had us closely following whether or not its director, Patty Jenkins, would return for the sequel that Warner Bros. is suddenly very eager to get off the ground. As you'd expect, that level of success gives Jenkins a powerful negotiation tool, and she's now reportedly close to closing a deal to bring us the next installment in the franchise.

These 3 Wonder Woman Movie and TV Projects (Thankfully) Failed

Merciful Minerva!

Although I'd be perfectly happy with a 24-hour live broadcast of director Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot's interpretation of Wonder Woman, I have to say I'm pretty glad these projects never saw the light of day. They might've cursed Diana into the realms of mediocrity and not let the wondrous vision we saw this summer take shape.

Joss Whedon and the Terrible, Horrible, No-Good, Very Bad Script: A Wonder Woman Story

One of the great pop culture white whales of recent years has been Joss Whedon's mysterious Wonder Woman script. As audiences begged for the iconic superheroine to hit the big screen, and Whedon's take was rejected, that rejected script became a symbol of Everything That's Wrong with Hollywood. It became a symbol of an All Boys' Club trying to keep superhero movies For Men Only. Turns out? That script was just bad. And also hella sexist.

“Boys Can Be Wonder Woman, Too!”: Kids (and Their Parents) Talk About Their Favorite Amazon

Because boys can look up to her, too!

Wonder Woman‘s Best Battle Scene Almost Didn’t Make the Cut … Because Execs Didn’t Get It

Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman did an amazing job at balancing huge action set-pieces with earnest heart and emotion without being cheesy or ironic. One of the clearest examples of this was the moment in which Diana first dons her 'Wonder Woman' armor. It's a scene that's already iconic, and the film just came out. Hard to believe that this entire sequence almost didn't make the film! **SPOILERS IF YOU HAVEN'T YET SEEN THE FILM**
