Wonder Woman raked in $14.4 million on Tuesday, making it the second highest grossing live-action film on a Tuesday in June, according to Deadline. Among DC films, only The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises reportedly grossed more on any Tuesday than Wonder Woman, earning $20.9m and $17.8m respectively.

While Wonder Woman's box office success all but guarantees plans for a sequel, she may have to ride into battle without director Patty Jenkins, who has yet to officially sign for a sequel according to The Hollywood Reporter. While Gal Gadot's contract with Warner Bros. reportedly includes an option for a Wonder Woman sequel, THR says that the studio will have to renegotiate with Jenkins for her to return.

Jenkins currently has one post-Wonder Woman project lined-up, an original project for AMC's Shudder streaming service entitled Riprore, though it's unclear in what capacity she is involved in that project.

In April, Jenkins laid out ideas for a Wonder Woman sequel that would bring Diana to America.

Wonder Woman is currently in theaters. Gal Gadot will next appear as the character in Justice League, due out in theaters November 17.
