‘Wonder Woman’ Beats ‘Deadpool’ At Domestic Box Office; Surpasses ‘Suicide Squad’ Globally

Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman has now surpassed Deadpool at the domestic box office. This weekend, Wonder Woman made an additional $10.1 million at the box office this weekend, bringing its domestic total to $368 million. Deadpool made a total of $363 million during its theatrical run. Wonder Woman is now the thirty fourth highest-grossing film in the U.S.

Not too long ago, Wonder Woman also surpassed both Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad domestically. Now, however, Wonder Woman has now managed to pass Suicide Squad’s global total, having grossed $745.8 million thus far, compared to Suicide Squad’s $745.6 million.

If it keeps going the way it has, Wonder Woman might have a chance to reach Batman v Superman’s global total of $873.2 million. It might take a while, but the film is still making a tremendous amount of money and domestically, it’s remained in the top five at the box office since its release on June 2nd.

Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.

Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince, Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Lucy Davis as Etta Candy, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Robin Wright as General Antiope, Lisa Loven Kongsli as Menalippe, Danny Huston as General Erich Ludendorff, David Thewlis as Sir Patrick Morgan, Elena Anaya as Doctor Maru, Ewen Bremner as Charlie, Saïd Taghmaoui as Sameer and Eugene Brave Rock as the Chief.

    I don’t think beating a rated R movie is the bench mark they should shoot for.

    • JMMagwood

      When a movie makes as much money as “Deadpool” did, it is.

      • Sam

        He’s simply referring to how Deadpool making as much money as it did was considered miraculous in relation to its R-rating, hence why we make such a big deal of it in the first place, and therefore the comparison isn’t a fair match to that of a PG-13 film.

        • JMMagwood

          Doesn’t matter in box office terms. DP was a huge success, WW a bigger one. That’s all that matters.

          • Matty1977

            It must be nice to see in only black and white. Forget the gray areas.

          • razorstar90

            It does when it comes to numerical figures, like Box Office.

          • JMMagwood

            I prefer to see it as practical over insipid.

          • Sam

            I get where you’re coming from but the legacy of Deadpool’s box office success is intrinsic to its R-rating. They’re just commenting on while people impulsively commend WW’s achievements, due in part to the female-led aspect, this particular one this isn’t much of a feat. But hey, a feat’s a feat.

      • Joseph Chaisson

        You have wonder women (who is fighting to be the first main stream super heroine movie) and the first female director, it good to see that it is going strong. But you can’t set a hard R movie that limited those that could see it. Pretty much any one can see wonder women in theaters. Deadpool was very limited in that capacity. so no it’s not a good bench mark.

        • JMMagwood

          What you’re saying doesn’t matter; DP made a boatload of money, and that’s the bottom line. WW is going to make more, and that’s a benchmark for success.

          • Joseph Chaisson

            DP made bunch of money as being a refreshing hard R. it does matter because R movies has a much smaller audience. Deadpool, while right now is extremely popular doesn’t have the history as Wonder Women. A better bench mark is someone on her level, Superman, Batman, and or Spider-man.

        • Matty1977

          I agree. Deadpool made all of that money with out the help of the under 17 crowd which is a huge crowd.

          • Joseph Chaisson

            Thats why I think the Deadpool line, while it’s nice to give it a visual, isn’t indicative of WW success. I think WW beating TASM numbers is a better showing of the movie.

        • Sam

          Though they’re no where near as good as Wonder Woman, there have been other superheroine movies: Supergirl, Elektra, Catwoman. Also while he’s more of an anti-hero than a superhero, Punisher: War Zone was directed by Lexi Alexander. That movie had so much potential.

          • Joseph Chaisson

            Thats why I said main stream. Wonder Woman is one of the most iconic Super heroes out there. Those other 3 no were close to WW status.

          • Sam

            While not nearly as iconic or popular as Wonder Woman, she is the end all and be all after all, Supergirl is a mainstream superhero. And a very popular one at that, hence why she keeps appearing in movies, cartoons, and TV shows. I’ve come to find that it sure is imperative that Wonder Woman and the word “first” share the same sentence.

          • Joseph Chaisson

            She is now. When the 1980’s movie came out they were wanting to build off the Superman hype. She wasn’t Their A of super hero like Wonder Woman.

          • Sam

            I was this close to saying, “Yes, even before she got a TV show.” Anyway, while related, an A-list superhero and a mainstream superhero are not one and the same. Even when they were B-listers Cap, Thor, and Iron Man still qualified as mainstream heroes. B-list mainstream heroes. Then there’s GOTG. Unlike Supergirl, Cap, and Thor, even comic book readers didn’t read their comics, yet their film was still billed as a mainstream superhero film. As far as examples go, a non-mainstream character would be someone like Scarlet Rue and an example of a non-mainstream superhero film would be say, Griff the Invisible or Super.

          • Joseph Chaisson

            “Even when they were B-listers Cap, Thor, and Iron Man still qualified as mainstream heroes. B-list mainstream heroes.” – Before the movies they were not main stream like Spider-Man Batman Superman Wonder Women.

          • Sam

            I agree, they were no where near as mainstream as Spidey and the Holy Trinity, but they were still mainstream.

  • Kyle Rayner

    Woo Hoooooooo
