Most importantly, the Wonder Woman sequel will chart at least some of the time between the first movie and Diana’s present day activities alongside Batman, Superman, and the Justice League. Her domestic cume now stands at $115M.
Along came Wonder Woman, and not only was it the film DC Films needed, but it was the film Hollywood needed, too.
Movies & More reviewer John Gillispie shares his thoughts on “Wonder Woman“, which is rated PG-13 and now playing in theaters.
If you’re wavering about whether to see Wonder Woman, who are you and have you been planning some nefarious villainy on a planet far, far away?
Jenkins has been vocal about her ideas for a sequel, prompting many to believe her return was a sure deal.
Fans really, really wanted Lynda Carter, who played Wonder Woman in the 1970s TV series, to appear in the film.
In November, she also happened to be five months pregnant. “I went down a gravel hill where they took Wonder Woman up a conveyer belt and they drop her off”. The current best sellers are the Pop Vinyl figure, a Themyscria necklace replica, a sword letter opener and a t-shirt with the movie’s logo on it plus an image of Gal Gadot herself on the front. Over 75 years’ worth of anticipation and strong buzz ahead of its release led the Patty Jenkins-directed flick to a stellar $103 million opening.
“Wonder Woman” features the battles, villains and quirky supporting characters you would expect in a superhero movie, as well as the special effects needed to make everything believable.
Without diving too deep into the history of film, it’s no secret that female directors have had to fight tooth and nail for every project they could get their hands on.
“Wonder Woman“, starring Gal Gadot, has smashed global box-office records for a woman-directed and woman-superhero film. With director Patty Jenkins’ DC Comics film gaining positive reactions from audiences and critics alike, and being dubbed as “a new way to empower women” from original Wonder Woman actress Lynda Carter, it’s no surprise that Diana Prince’s message of love, power and peace is resonating with people around the world.
Would you like to see Jenkins back for Wonder Woman 2, and take on a bigger role in the DCEU?
Something tells me this little video of Gadot lip syncing in the privacy of her own home is going to be getting quite a few million views over the next few days.
