Ryan Reynolds Congratulates 'Wonder Woman' on Beating 'Deadpool's Box Office
"The Merc may be filthier, but her B.O. is stronger," Reynolds said in cheeky yet heartfelt Instagram post. "Congrats #WonderWoman." He (along with the official Deadpool account) shared a photo of Deadpool making a heart sign around a gold Wonder-Woman emblem necklace. Awwww! We heart her too.
"Wonder Woman," starring Gal Gadot as the warrior princess, has now racked up $368 million in North America, edging out "Deadpool"'s domestic take of $363 million. At the worldwide box office, "Deadpool" still leads with $783 million to $746 million.
Among the other box-office milestones set by "Wonder Woman" since its July 9 debut: It's the highest-grossing live-action film directed by a woman, the highest-grossing film domestically of Warner Bros.' DC Extended Universe, and (so far) the second-highest-grossing DCEU film worldwide, behind "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." "Batman v Superman," in which Gadot made her debut as Wonder Woman, racked up $873 worldwide. "Wonder Woman" has, to date, earned $745.5 million globally.
Reynolds is currently filming "Deadpool 2," which opens June 1, 2018. The box-office battle isn't over, as "Wonder Woman 2" is also in the works.
