Joss Whedon, who directed Marvel's The Avengers and The Avengers: Age of Ultron and DC Comics' Justice League, sent out a tweet alluding to an all-female screening of Wonder Woman in NY. He took to Twitter and wrote, "Many congrats to @PattyJenks and her awesome Wonder Woman on what looks to be an over 100 million opening weekend!"
There is no word from Warner Bros.as of yet, but with the reception of the film so far, Patty Jenkins will be ready when the call comes.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins hasn't officially signed on to be part of a sequel. Our guess is that these negotiations will happen in short order, and that we'll have confirmation on Jenkins' return shortly thereafter. It's just my wishful thinking, but I hope they take Diana to the 1960s when it was the height of popularity for spies and espionage.
Putting records aside, Wonder Woman has broken barriers of other kinds. But we do know that she has quite the leverage. On top of its already strong box office performance, Wonder Woman is also a great movie.
And as it should.
"She doesn't want to bring any darkness to the world", she said. There isn't a viewing I've been to where I've thought to myself "Wow this isn't as good as I remembered".
EW talked to our fearless leader back in April, and she discussed wanting to set a possible Wonder Woman sequel in America.
Critically, Wonder Woman is resting at a 93 percent on review site RottenTomatoes.com, making it not only one of the highest-reviewed films of the year, but also one of the highest-reviewed superhero films; period.
