Wonder Woman kicked some serious ass on its opening weekend, so you may not be surprised to hear that it’s on track to break records at the box office. Woman records.
Director Patty Jenkins is hard at work on a script for the sequel to her colossally successful Wonder Woman movie, Variety reports.
The astounding success of Wonder Woman has made Gal Gadot a household name, and both she and director Patty Jenkins stand to make a lot of money during negotiations for the inevitable Wonder Woman 2. But how much did they make for this blockbuster to start with?

Few women would have worn masks like the otherwise historically accurate one sported by Wonder Woman villain Doctor Poison. However, many of them were created by a woman—an American sculptor named Anna Coleman Ladd.
Wonder Woman, surprisingly, did not make me barf. Nor did it make my coworker, Ellie Shechet, barf, who may be the only person I know with a stomach more sensitive than mine. Wonder Woman did, however, beat us up, particularly in a scene early on when Antiope shoots three arrows into an opponent. We felt them in our…
Initial reports indicated that Wonder Woman destroyed the box office over its opening weekend, but you can now officially tip your hat to Patty Jenkins: her film had a total global opening weekend of $223 million, the highest US opening weekend for a woman director ever.
New York Magazine film critic David Edelstein published a review of Wonder Woman last week that, unsurprisingly, dedicated a lot of words to star Gal Godot’s body.

But Marston’s granddaughter writes that his wife Elizabeth Holloway Marston was also an inspiration for the iconic character.
While we’re waiting for Wonder Woman to start, my mom tells me a “when I was young” story that I’ve heard a thousand times. The details of the story—cobbled from memories now 50 years old—shift slightly but the fundamentals remain the same: every couple of months or so, her mother would drive her to the Greyhound…
The only good thing about the mostly overrated Wonder Woman is the slight erection it gave me—slight, I’ll emphasize, not full; my dick has been known to get harder and more impressive, but I’m in a forgiving mood.
This month, the Alamo Drafthouse decided to celebrate the hotly anticipated, female-led-and-directed superhero film Wonder Woman with a women-only screening at their Austin location, with proceeds to be donated to Planned Parenthood.
