Canadian duo behind Wonder Woman comics buoyed by film's box office success

For the second week in a row, "Wonder Woman" has the US box office all tied up.

Q: Would you be interested in a bigger role in the DCEU than director?

The first film in the "Dark Universe" series was cursed with poor word of mouth, scoring 17 percent on Rotten Tomatoes and a B- on CinemaScore, not to mention stiff competition from "Wonder Woman". Q: What inspired the pure heart that "Wonder Woman" has as a film?

Still, the film is on track to earn more than $600 million worldwide, a success that Thompson anticipates will be good for Jenkins' career "and probably for other women directors". We know that she wants to direct Wonder Woman 2, but that project is still a long wait away. Taghmaoui said "I'm really blessed to had a chance to work with these incredible director.!"

The film cleverly uses the World War I setting to distance itself from other superhero films, all too often featuring convoluted plots, high tech weapons and far-fetched villains.

She writes that watching a superhero movie without the lens of the male gaze is "like putting glasses on for the first time".

Whilst it is a very action packed film, they do manage to feature some spot on comic relief from Lucy Davis as Etta Candy who provided the more light-hearted moments in the film and could have stolen the show if she had more scenes. The teacher noted just some of the best Wonder Woman related incidents that happened in her class within a week of the film being released. "That's why I let her see it".

Since it launched with over $100 million domestically last weekend, it became clear that Wonder Woman would top the box office in its second weekend and push aside Universal's The Mummy.
