The 'Wonder Woman' filmmaker is thrilled she is paving the way for women directors in the film industry and can't wait to see what is ahead.

She told Entertainment Tonight: "It's any filmmaker's dream to have an impact on the art form that they work in - and I hope that I do with everything that I do - and I so appreciate being honoured in any way for that ...

"It's definitely a huge deal to realise that people haven't been honoring other kinds of directors. I think I wasn't even thinking about it much coming up in my career, but now that I see it I'm hugely honoured to be a part of changing that conversation."

Meanwhile, Patty previously revealed she is very "excited" about the future of the DC Extended Universe because of how many talented directors are involved in the upcoming movies.

She shared: "There are a lot of great filmmakers around the DC Universe and there are a lot of great characters. My favourite thing about the DC Universe is some of these characters have been the greatest, most original superheroes for decades. I think there's just exciting things to be done with them ahead and lots of different people that I'm excited about seeing. All of us are very different and we're all going to do different things. So I can't wait to see the variety, personally."
