‘Wonder Woman’ Overtakes ‘Batman V Superman’ At Domestic Box Office

Wonder Woman Batman V SupermanDiana Prince a.k.a. Wonder Woman made her debut in last year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, with Gal Gadot entering the DC Extended Universe as the iconic Amazon Princess. Since her solo film came out at the start of this month, the success of Wonder Woman is only continuing to grow, including at the box office.

Recently, the Patty Jenkins picture passed both Man of Steel and Suicide Squad domestically, but now a third DCEU film has joined that list. Wonder Woman has officially surpassed Batman v Superman at the North American box office, having grossed $330.5 million in its fourth week in theaters. In comparison, Batman v Superman made a total of $330.3 million at the domestic box office during its entire run.

“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, starring 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, is now playing in theaters.
