'Wonder Woman' Is On Track For A $200 Million Worldwide Opening

Patty Jenkins is at the helm of the film, and it's the first Warner Bros. superhero movie to explicitly have a woman, Gal Gadot as the eponymous Wonder Woman, in its starring role.

Coming off the back of stellar reviews, Warner Bros.' latest DC blockbuster Wonder Woman has exceeded expectations at the box office, pulling in a global opening weekend of $223 million. If it flopped financially, women would be seen as box office poison.

"Wonder Woman" is also the first big-budget superhero movie directed by a woman. In 2015, only 1.9 percent of the year's largest grossing films were helmed by female directors, reported Maureen Down of the New York Times. "I can't wait to spring forward with who she is and have another great standalone superhero film".

The audience was also slightly more female than a usual superhero film, although - get your smelling salts ready! - lots of men also came to see the film.

It's well-established that Hollywood doesn't like to hire female directors, and it doesn't like to make movies about women. "I am sure we will be seeing a lot more of Diana on the big screen".
