How 'Wonder Woman' slyly comments on the politics of Hollywood

Wonder Woman ends with the end of World War I, almost a century before the events of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Wonder Woman's introduction into the DC Universe. Jenkins says of her version of the Steve Trevor character.

How fitting is it that those two films helped lead the way for what comic book movies are like now in this decade?

And now after nine years, the first film to tie the live-action superhero movie record on Rotten Tomatoes is Wonder Woman - which is a game changer in its own right.

"Wonder Woman has broken the Philippines" 2017 box office record for highest earning non-holiday opening day, according to Francis Soliven, general manager of Warner Bros Philippines.

Wonder Woman producer Charles Roven is hopeful that plans for a sequel will soon be in the pipeline.

Gal Gadot is remarkable as Diana, with a fierce yet vulnerable quality to her. Roven says he and the crew "hope it continues on", and that he would look forward to working with director Patty Jenkins again.

I know personally that I've been waiting for a Wonder Woman movie for as long as I can remember.

Unlike other movies, however, which too easily equate innocence with a childlike quality, "Wonder Woman" never makes the mistake of reducing Diana in any way. The movie is a treatise about a strong character ... a strong protagonist finding her mission in life, and realizing she doesn't need to sacrifice her views to save the world. "I feel so honored to be making a movie about a Super Hero who stands for such important values". The praise is so great, in fact, the film has been deemed better than last year's Batman v Superman, which pulled in over $870 million worldwide, and the best DC Comics film adaptation since The Dark Knight Rises in 2012. "But without ever knowing it, I think 'Wonder Woman" was my dream role.

The fans can ignore the not so satisfying ending and appreciate the inspiring character of Diana Prince aka Wonder Woman.

The Hollywood Reporter's profile of the director discussed some of the projects that she's been wanting to make in the meantime, including an indie drama titled I Am Superman with Ryan Gosling.
