Wonder Woman's Patty Jenkins Wants To Direct A Superman Movie

Posted June 12, 2017

She-of the cannonball-stopping shield, laser-busting bracelets and projectile tiara, not to mention Lasso of Truth, Sandals of Hermes and Sword of Athena-knows her role is to save the world from war.

After months and months of waiting, I finally had a chance to see 2017's most anticipated superhero movie.

Collecting an astonishing $300 million globally on its opening weekend, Wonder Woman hasalreadybecome the biggest blockbuster directed by a woman and the "most successful" female-led super hero film to date at the box office.

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.

Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior.

The local Ramallah newspaper al-Hadath reported on Sunday that Palestine Towers Cinema, located in the city's tallest building, made a decision to not screen the highly successful film due to "political reasons related to the Israeli occupation and the Israeli actress starring in the film". "There's a version of every kind of film that I celebrate, but there seems there's also a tendency to make a mess if there's too much going on - so it's not something I think is always a great idea".

"Wonder Woman" is seeing the opposite effect, with almost unanimous critical praise and strong word-of-mouth allowing it to post a second weekend total just 45 percent down from its $103 million opening. The portrayal of Diana as a subject and an agent, is a refreshing change of how women are typically portrayed in these films.

"She's basically telling the guys, 'No, I can do this".

The influence that Donner's film has had on all superhero films can not go understated.

This week, she faced The Mummy at the box office which, as its own franchise with Tom Cruise at the helm, could've maybe proved to be a semi-formidable opponent.

In addition to approaching half a billion worldwide, Wonder Woman's additional weekend draw saw just a 44.6 percent drop.
