Wonder Woman 2 Sequel Director Update; Potential Storyline Leaked

Warner Bros. Chief Confirms 'Wonder Woman 2' Director And Post-World War I Setting

This weekend, Wonder Woman will click past the $300M mark domstically.

Instead of B-grade villains like Captain Boomerang and Deadshot, this time around Harley will be joined by two of Batman's most famous female baddies, Poison Ivy and Catwoman. Pictures, which is responsible for both Wonder Woman and Man of Steel, but a spokesman had no comment. It manages to be moving without being more saccharine than a superhero movie can pull off.

Fortunately for Gal Gadot, "Wonder Woman" has so far earned almost $574 million in USA and worldwide grosses combined.

Jenkins' film shattered records at the USA box office upon its release at the beginning of the month, taking in over $100 million over its debut weekend. Taylor-Johnson reportedly took home $2 million -.4 percent of the worldwide gross - for directing the film.

Chris Pine (left) and Gal Gadot star in "Wonder Woman". And she is equally smitten. Other recent or upcoming female-directed films include Lucia Aniello's Rough Night, Lake Bell's I Do... What's more, it brought in $8.1 million, an impressive number given its rating. But Coppola tells the story from the perspective of the women in the story, instead of the men. Coppola's film, "The Beguiled", starring Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell, is in limited release and will be in theaters nationwide on June 30. Not to say that the movie was anti-men, actually it was a great eye opener to many inequality issues, including racial stigmas, and emphasized the importance of men and women working together to get a job done. Gabriela Cowperthwaite's "Megan Leavey" and Eleanor Coppola's "Paris Can Wait" are already making splashes at the box office, grossing $8.3 and $3.1 million respectively in the domestic market.

With past work like "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" under his belt, the "Avengers" director has developed a reputation for butt-kicking female heroes, so Batgirl is a pretty natural fit. Although it can't be denied that Hollywood does have a gender wage gap in their salaries, Wonder Woman does not seem to be an illustration of this.

It's no secret that Hollywood relies mainly on male directors, but this season is turning out to be a strong one for films with women at the helm.

But several publications have picked apart that figure to show that it was highly misleading and may not say as much about pay disparity in Hollywood as other figures.

But his fee, if true, came after he was paid box office bonuses for the 2013 movie.

Beyond the numbers, "Wonder Woman" must also bear the weight of the feminist anticipation that has been building steadily around the film for years.
