Since its release, the latest DC Comics film Wonder Woman has quickly become a smashing success critically while continuing to rise at the box office week after week. The Patty Jenkins-directed film recently surpassed the first DC Extended Universe Superman installment Man of Steel at the North American box office and now it has soared past another DCEU movie.

Wonder Woman is expected to pass Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice sometime this week which would make it the highest-grossing DCEU film at the domestic box office. Looking at its global box office as a whole, Jenkins’ DC film has garnered $660 million.
“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.”
