'Wonder Woman'becomes DC's highest-grossing movie
Gal Gadot starrer Wonder Woman, which has broken the ground on the superhero market for females, has become DC's most successful film ever. With box office collection USD 334.9 million, the Patty Jenkins-directed movie earned the title of the highest- grossing film within the DC Extended Universe, reported Entertainment Weekly. The DCEU includes films such as Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad.
Wonder Woman now has the most box office dough of them all as far as domestic audiences go. Batman v Superman, in which the character of Diana Prince first debuted, earned USD 330.36 million domestically throughout its theatrical run. But, the Ben Affleck-Henry Cavill starrer is still ahead in terms of its international box office collection.
Wonder Woman also features Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis and Lucy Davis.
While Wonder Woman is breaking records, Director Patty Jenkins has clarified her stance on the potential sequel of her recently- released film, Wonder Woman, saying that although the plot is in talks, the second part is yet to be confirmed. The 45-year-old filmmaker responded to a story by Advocate magazine on Twitter that claimed she is on board for the second installment starring actor Gal Gadot in the titular role.
"Hey all. Thanks for the excitement but that wasn't a confirmation. Just talking about ideas and hopes. But still excited and hopeful #WW2," tweeted Jenkins. Following the screening of the film and the Q & A that followed, Advocate reported
Jenkins saying, "I had an epiphany about 'Wonder Woman 2'. I was like, you don't have to do this. But then as I was falling asleep I had an epiphany. I was like, Wait a minute."
"You have the greatest character of all time that you love dearly, with a cast that you love sitting at the palm of your hand at this day and age you can do whatever you want with them are you crazy?" Back in April, the director told Entertainment Weekly that she had already envisioned where a sequel could be based.
