Female comic book superhero works

Wonder Woman for Hollywood

They said a female comic book superhero movie couldn’t work. They said women couldn’t direct big-budget action blockbusters. They said audiences overseas wouldn’t go for a big-budget spectacular not centered around a white guy. They said a lot of things over the last few decades.

Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman just outgrossed the entire global total of Green Lantern ($219m) this weekend. Oh, and by tomorrow, it will probably be the biggest DC Comics movie ever not based around Batman or Superman. Sorry, Constantine ($230m in 2005 and sans 3D), I still think you’re pretty cool.
