Director: 'Wonder Woman' a 'hero' for all

Her domestic cume now stands at $115M.

Wonder Woman is certainly garnering praise from around the world for its stellar direction by Patty Jenkins and acting by Gal Gadot.

But the opening weekend for "Wonder Woman" is an achievement for female filmmakers and for the industry, says Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at comScore.

In the wake of Wonder Woman's staggering success at the box office this weekend, word circulated that both Gal Gadot and director Patty Jenkins were signed for the inevitable sequel, and there was much rejoicing.

Prominent US entertainment voices have suggested record-breaking release Wonder Woman could be in the running for Oscar nominations, prompting talk the female-centric production may be the superhero movie to finally earn a major accolade from the Academy. Now I want to make Wonder Woman 2. Indeed, almost three times as many people have lived on the International Space Station than have created films that break the $100 million opening weekend mark, and that's a triumph worthy of note for any gender. Patty Jenkins was no different since her only previous film experience was directing the much smaller budgeted drama Monster. Pictures, actress Gal Gadot and actress Lynda Carter attend the premiere of Warner Bros.

When she was hired, she had only directed the 2003 film Monster.




According to sources, the studio intends to begin negotiations with Jenkins shortly and the filmmaker and her reps at Creative Artists Agency (CAA), Anonymous Content and Jackoway Tyerman will enjoy enormous leverage.

"The story will take place in the US, which I think is right", she told Entertainment Weekly.

Jenkins reportedly has her eyes set on bringing Diana to America in the sequel, and with the huge time gap till her re-introduction in BvS, it's possible that Wonder Woman 2 could be another period piece.

Wonder Woman has had many enemies over the years.

Wonder Woman could have been the only character in the movie and it would still be great, however, I enjoyed the dynamics between her and her love interest Steve Trevor.
