How Wonder Woman Lassoed Its Skeptics Into a $223 Million Fan Club

Although Thor is part of the Marvel universe and Wonder Woman falls under the DC umbrella, both characters are demigods (Thor is a god from Norse mythology, while Diana is the daughter of Zeus and Hippolyta) and would therefore be pretty evenly matched. Man of Steel received a 55% score by Rotten Tomatoes and an A- by CinemaScore. While Patty Jenkins has said she will most likely return to direct, with Gal Gadot starring once more, the future of some of the other movie's stars, is still in question. It was the biggest box office opening for a female director ever - which, given the number of big-budget movies women now get to direct, is not that surprising. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers...and her true destiny.

At DC, "Wonder Woman" beats out Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight", which earned a 94 percent freshness rating, and this year's "The Lego Batman Movie", which earned a 90 percent.

As for opening weekend revenue - which is a flawed but important metric on which to gauge success - Wonder Woman's debut raked in an estimated $100.5 million in North America.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Jenkins revealed that the Amazonian princess will be heading stateside for Wonder Woman 2. That puts the worldwide total at $223 million after just six days of global release.

Loss to Giants 9-5 in 10 innings
Melancon ended up preserving the tie and getting a win after the Giants scored four times in the 10th. To make room for Espino on the roster, Milwaukee optioned OF Brett Phillips back to Colorado Springs.

"I realized that "Wonder Woman 2" is its own great movie", she told EW.

With a budget of $150 million, the newest DC movie was the most expensive to ever be directed by a woman. As Wonder Woman producer Charles Roven told CinemaBlend, "Nothing has been written".

"Wonder Woman" is now playing nationwide.

Last week, the city's mayor went viral after replying to complaints from local men crying "reverse sexism" with a tongue-in-cheek letter mocking their "uninformed and sexist rantings".
