Most importantly, the Wonder Woman sequel will chart at least some of the time between the first movie and Diana's present day activities alongside Batman, Superman, and the Justice League. With Jenkins now a proven commodity, she could potentially demand a much higher payday to come back for another film. Through her character, we are able to view our own society as an outsider as well.
The popularity of Wonder Woman cannot be overstated nor can the popularity of Gal Gadot.
Sources speaking to theHollywood Reporter say WB made a decision to wait and see how opening weekend went before deciding to negotiate with Jenkins, and that the studio intends to begin talks soon. Also, being humble and kind like Diana Prince herself, Gal Gadot paused to share a thank you video.
The Wonder Woman character first appeared in a DC comic more than 75 years ago.
But a recent showing of Wonder Woman held by the Academy was reportedly both well-attended and received.
"Wonder Woman" also acted as a shot in the arm to Warner Bros.' critically beleaguered DC superhero brand - which includes three panned blockbusters, 2013's "Man of Steel", 2016's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" and 2016's "Suicide Squad" - as well as a sluggish summer movie season that was down almost 9% from past year going into the weekend.
Wonder Woman is now out in theaters.
On the screen, Wonder Woman took on a war and saved the world. I think it is an wonderful scene and made me smile when I watched the movie.
Jenkins told EW about Gadot being pregnant during shooting: "Now, at least, we will be able to tell her [new] daughter Maya that she's in her mom's stomach right then, in the middle of that battle scene".
