Move over boys — "Wonder Woman" is taking the box office crown.
In just four weeks, "Wonder Woman has become the highest-grossing DC Comics Extended Universe movie at the domestic box office, topping the 12-week run of "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice."
The feat is especially impressive since "Wonder Woman" had a smaller opening weekend than both "Batman v Superman" and "Suicide Squad." That means the positive reviews and good word-of-mouth are propelling the movie's success.
The DCEU standings are now:
- "Wonder Woman" – $330.533 million
- "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" – $330.366 million
- "Suicide Squad" – $325.100 million
- "Man of Steel" – $291.045 million
It's just a matter of time before "Wonder Woman" also surges to the top in worldwide grosses and very possibly become Warner Bros./DC's first billion dollar movie.
"Wonder Woman 2" is inevitable, though talks are still underway with director Patty Jenkins. But with such smashing success, there's very little doubt everyone will want to repeat it.
