Wonder Woman Has the Best Superhero Box Office Holding in 15 Years

'Wonder Woman' 2 Details Revealed as Diana Takes On Another Infamous Foe Wonder Woman On Track to Become Warner Brothers' Third Biggest Film Ever

Currenly, Wonder Woman has earned $371.3 million domestically.

"'Wonder Woman" appears poised to top Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2's" domestic take and has an outside shot of catching it internationally.

As if you needed another reason to get pumped for the highly likely Wonder Woman sequel, we've got some great news for you.

Before it was released, Lynda - who now plays President Olivia Marsdin on CW's "Supergirl" - admitted she was intrigued to see what Gal and Patty would do with the character once the torch had been passed on.

Carter, 65, gushed about how much she loved "Wonder Woman" and that before she even saw the movie she knew Jenkins and Gal Gadot would slay.

The actress added, "Am I open to it?"

Jennifer Lawrence 'not pretty enough' to play Sharon Tate: Sister Debra
She was the wife of director Roman Polanski, and Tarantino's film is reportedly centered on her death. In a bloody killing spree in August 1969, Manson and his followers killed seven people in two days.

Wonder Woman is doing phenomenally well and as of this week, it can also boast having the best hold of any superhero movie in over 15 years. When asked by a fan on Twitter whether she'd keep trying to land Carter for the franchise's second go-round, Jenkins replied emphatically that she would.

"The way Patty Jenkins has directed this, there's so much depth to it. But we'll just see how that goes", she said.

And as the top earner of all time for a movie directed exclusively by a woman, and the first critical and commercial success of a film about a female superhero, the movie shattered industry-entrenched stereotypes.

Both women have been vocal about their appreciation for each other's stake in Wonder Woman: Jenkins, for Carter's legacy, and Carter for Jenkins' treatment of it. It's not about superpowers, it's about her intellect and compassion.

The film has a current multiple of 3.6 (a multiple is a movie's total income divided by it's opening weekend), and any number between 2.5 and 3 is considered really good. "We are half the world, and we want to represented as half the world".
