How the 'Wonder Woman' box office gross compares to other superhero movies

The box office and critical success of Wonder Woman caught pretty much everyone off guard, including Warner Bros., who is now looking to lock director Patty Jenkins in to helm the inevitable sequel.

Since the first movie functioned as an origin story, there's so much scope for the follow-up.

Needless to say that after waiting 14 years to direct Wonder Woman and earning $103.3 million domestically in its opening week, the director has certainly earned the right to negotiate and Warner Bros. seems to agree.

Last week Wonder Woman hit big screens across the country and the buzz around this new superhero film is still in the air.

"Wonder Woman" is getting a lot of praise after its opening weekend, and it deserves it.


In May 2017, when Uproxx asked Jenkins if the sequel could be set in the 1930s, she replied, "I'm definitely planning something more interesting using that period of time". Moira MacDonald wrote for the Seattle Times that "Patty Jenkins" "Wonder Woman' is that rarity: a superhero movie with a heart". Wonder Woman is the number-one movie in the whole world. Wonder Woman is a ideal example of that.

If you're wavering about whether to see Wonder Woman, who are you and have you been planning some nefarious villainy on a planet far, far away? We will likely see her in Justice League, but this option guarantees that as long as the studio wants to make a sequel to Wonder Woman, Diana Prince will be played by Gal Gadot.

Not to diss love interests like Lois Lane or heroes like Black Widow, but those characters fit the molds that comic books and superhero movies have made for them.

Well, I still love watching movies and, yep, I still love talking about them. I don't even know where these all-lady showings were, because when I went and bought my ticket on opening night, I didn't have any trouble finding a screening that would let me in.
