Israel's in love with its homegrown Wonder Woman Gal Gadot

Wonder Woman’ Conquers domestic box office since its release date

Scenes of young Diana (Lilly Aspell) spying on the combat training lead by General Antiope (Robin Wright) caused my heart to swell, and seeing how her defiant, compassionate nature formed her into a grown-up hero in waiting (Gal Gadot) that would be quickly called into action was enough to bring the waterworks. Wonder Woman had a $103 million opening in the USA and has since made $12 million more, bringing its domestic total to $115 million. Steve is so deep in the mythology that after some debate we found that just like Wonder Woman needs Steve, we needed Steve too.

Though Gal Gadot is locked in for another Wonder Woman movie, Patty Jenkins has not yet officially been signed for the Wonder Woman sequel. With Jenkins now a proven commodity, she could potentially demand a much higher payday to come back for another film. Jenkins' new deal could not only include directing Wonder Woman 2 but working with DC Entertainment president and chief creative officer Geoff Johns on a script treatment. All in all, it sounds like a great time to be Patty Jenkins (and a fan of Wonder Woman). ". I'd always have some Wonder Woman paraphernalia around because there's always those moments that you're like 'Oh, am I capable of doing this?' If I wasn't, she was, so that's what I would do".

Lebanese ministry calls for ban of Wonder Woman movie

Wonder Woman is now screening in cinemas.

That message - of believing in one's own capability - is not exclusive to either sex, Anderson said. Much of the hullaballoo, however, comes from the assertion that Wonder Woman will empower women and encourage the positive "representation" of women that is supposedly so rare in Hollywood. ". We have different talents as men and women, but they're equally important and we're both equally capable". "I want to live in a world where every person... knows (they) can be smart and strong and powerful and kind and all the things that Wonder Woman is".
