Gal Gadot's "Wonder Woman" is still leading at the box office two weeks after the DC Comics film hit the cinema. In fact, the superhero movie has managed to establish a huge margin against Tom Cruise's "#The Mummy" reboot that was released on June 9.

The first installment of Dark Universe film series collected $30.9 million for its opening on Friday, which excludes the movie's preview collection of $2.6 million a day before the official release date. The female superhero, on the other hand, secured the top spot with $54.3 million, recording a decrease of 47 percent from its opening weekend.

The Boston Globe said that "The Mummy" reboot appeared as though it was directed by a producer who was more concerned about completing the scenes instead of checking the consistency of the film.

Another critic described the Tom Cruise-led movie as "messy and muddled" without the "carefree spirit" of the popular trilogy. Another one said the 2017 movie has "no atmosphere, no menace, and no romance," unlike the three classic "Mummy" films.

A movie analyst also asked Universal Pictures to reconsider their initial plan to match this film and its successors against Disney, Marvel, Warner Bros. and DC Comics' comic-based movies. The Verge explained Tom Cruise's "The Mummy" reboot is "functional" for a pilot movie, but not as "template" for the succeeding films of Dark Universe.

"#Wonder Woman" has surpassed Ryan Gosling's "La la land" and Emma Watson's "Beauty and the Beast."

On top of that, #Gal Gadot's titular role has also become this year's most talked about movie character on the social media platform. Most viewers (if not all) were impressed of how the Israeli actress and model played Diana Prince and Wonder Woman. What's more surprising was the fact that Gal Gadot was pregnant during the filming of the action-packed DC Comics film.

The 32-year-old rising star personally admitted that she hid her pregnancy to avoid special treatment on the set. Gal Gadot shared she would throw up discreetly in corners to avoid being asked about her condition.
