Wonder Woman 2 Will Take Diana to America

Freda Brock | 13 June, 2017, 04:52

The thing about this movie isn't just that we're finally getting a Wonder Woman film. It also represents the first time DC has been ahead of the curve compared to its Marvel competitors, whose own female-led comic book film doesn't release until 2019, with the Brie Larson-led Captain Marvel.

The film, directed by Patty Jenkins, has broken the record for the highest-grossing opening weekend for a female-directed movie.

In case you're wondering, Spider-Man, the 2002 film that truly kick-started the modern boom of superhero films, grossed $114.8 million in its opening weekend.

Patty Jenkins, who also directed Monster, surpassed the previous record held by Sam Taylor-Johnson for Fifty Shades of Grey, which made $93m (£72m) in its opening weekend in 2015. Wonder Woman added $122.5 million U.S. internationally, including $38 million U.S. in China.

NBA Draft Rumors: Los Angeles Lakers taking Josh Jackson at No. 2?
Smith is one of the best athletes in the draft and averaged 18.1 points, 6.2 assists and 4.6 rebounds in his only season with N.C. Mark Medina of the Orange County Register says that those that watched Ball during his workout noted a lack of conditioning.

There are many reasons why it makes a lot of sense to give Wonder Woman a World War I origin story. Everyone from Lupita Nyong'o to Jessica Chastain has been giving the film, as well as director Patty Jenkins and star Gal Gadot, rave reviews, including none other than Thor himself (aka Chris Hemsworth). And what say you about Wonder Woman 2 coming to America?

Wonder Woman has managed to bag a lump sum box office collection in India after it was released on June 2. But as X-Men's Storm approached her to fight, Wonder Woman dropped Mjolnir: She only wanted a fair fight.

That said, this is still a huge leap forward for the genre - as a father I'm delighted that my daughter (and my sons!) will learn through it that women can be every bit as strong and heroic as men. Wonder Woman packs quite a punch. "Our gay bars have long said that you do not exclude people because they're gay or straight or transgender-you just can't do that for any reason".
