Patty Jenkins is an American filmmaker who directed 2017's Wonder Woman.
She studied at the AFI Conservatory and graduated from Manhattan's Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art. She is perhaps most well known for writing and directing Monster in 2003 which earned her nominations from the Edgar Allan Poe Awards, the Berlin International Film Festival, and the Independent Spirit Awards, and garnered lead actress Charlize Theron an Oscar and a Golden Globe (among others).
Her other work includes directing episodes of Entourage, Arrested Development, and The Killing, as well as the TV movies Five (for Lifetime) and Exposed (for ABC). She was hired to direct Thor: The Dark World for Marvel in 2011, but left the project citing creative differences.
Prior to the theatrical release of Wonder Woman, Jenkins made several appearances to promote the film at San Diego Comic Con 2016, the CW TV special Dawn of the Justice League, and the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice featurette The Warrior, the Myth, the Wonder.
