After hitting cinemas on Friday (June 2), the superhero movie starring Gal Gadot raked in $223 million (£172 million) globally, including a huge $100.5 million (£77.8 million) at the USA box office. "I am so happy to be the one who is going to tell the Wonder Woman story". The film is now "Certified Fresh" on Rotten Tomatoes, with 93 percent favorable reviews from critics and a 93 percent positive audience score.

When compared to other superhero solo films, Wonder Woman's debut is bigger than both Iron Man and Doctor Strange, but behind the likes of Man of Steel, Deadpool and Spider-Man. Wonder Women, which just made its weekend debut, was hoping to change that, matching a female lead, female director, and super hero origin story, and creating a summer blockbuster.

The Gal Gadot-fronted superhero movie did especially well in the US.
