Gal Gadot stars as Wonder Woman, the film slanted female superhero films with more than 62 percent of moviegoers were male and 52 percent were female. It is also the first female heroine stand-alone film that tops the box office after the fall of both “Elektra” (2005) and “Catwoman” (2004).

Superhero movies and the domestic box office

Here is the roster of top local superhero premieres that conquered the box office from the new DC Extended Universe and modern-day Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Along with the much-acclaimed “Dark Knight” trilogy by Christopher Nolan, Fox’s “Deadpool” and Sony’s “Spider-Man.” Last year, the “Captain America: Civil War” got $179.7 million while $174 million for “Iron Man 3,” during the opening day. While DC and Warner Bros’ “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” ranked at no. 5 at $166 million with its domestic premiere.

Well, here is the obligatory comparison to all DC films, while the MCU was able to pacify its critics with James Gunn’s “Guardian of the Galaxy,” and Joss Whedon’s “Marvel’s The Avengers,” DC Extended Universe films are known for its dour and dark. In these past few months, critics slammed both “Batman v Superman” and “Suicide Squad.” DC and Warner Bros.

needed a quality movie that made a lot of money with “Wonder Woman.”

For the DCEU and Warner Bros, the heroine film reflects a change in tone that possibly creates a precedent for the upcoming films. However DC stressed that each film is given individual treatment and entity, each creator has their own style. The perfect timing is one of the factors to the success of the stand-alone film of the Amazonian Princess.

Who is Diana Prince?

Diana Prince lives with her Amazon sisters; she is Diana, the Princess of the Amazons in Themyscira before she becomes Wonder Woman. Aside from her beauty, she is a strong fighter, divine, immortal and striking. Her training as an Amazonian helped her enhance various tactics and skills in combat and hunting.

She has an extraordinary arsenal of advanced Amazonian innovations, like a tiara which serves as a projectile, pair of indestructible bracelets and of course the Lasso of Truth, Blasting News reported.

In the previous report of Blasting News, that in the film, the costume’s colors are representing Wonder Woman’s American identity, explaining that the film’s female only screenings are “sexists,” though defended the “globalized look” of the Amazonians.

It can be recalled that last year, Patty Jenkins replied to the open letter, saying that she is fighting a losing battle when she took the job as the director of the DCEU film. The newly released heroine film has proven the critics wrong, Jenkins held onto to Diana Prince’s Lasso of Truth tightly.
