Patty Jenkins Is Already Thinking About A 'Wonder Woman' Sequel

Baywatch has minted more than DC's latest venture, IANS reported.

Amen to that. Were you wowed by Wonder Woman's first ever big screen appearance over the weekend? In India, however, the scenario is different.

As Wonder Woman debuted to a historic $223 million worldwide, including $100.5 million domestically for the top spot, it's worth noting that only one scene was reshot by director Patty Jenkins. 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. 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. Costing about $149 million to make, Wonder Woman received a strong A CinemaScore from audiences.

"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" is the superhero season's early box office star lord, the latest "Spider-Man" series reboot is a month away from swinging into theaters and the solstice sun doesn't rise for another couple weeks.

That handily defeats the previous record for a movie directed by a woman - $85.1 million for Sam Taylor-Johnson's Fifty Shades of Grey. "They ask me, 'Who would win: Wonder Woman or Thor?' And I think it's Wonder Woman", Gadot says. The fourth offering from the DC Cinematic Universe has captivated fans in its opening weekend, earning $103.1 million at the US box office. "Wonder Woman is a woman for our time, and her message and the tone that Patty Jenkins set forth connects with now".

"The director in me wants this film that I made to succeed". But as X-Men's Storm approached her to fight, Wonder Woman dropped Mjolnir: She only wanted a fair fight.
