Wonder Woman Has the Highest-Grossing Debut Among All Superhero Origin Movies

June 04, 2017

No one even believed it would track $60 million in US box office receipts. 

But that's what Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman just did and more, overshooting expectations to gross $100.5 million Friday through Sunday. This makes Wonder Woman a far bigger domestic opening weekend than all other superhero origin movies: Captain America: The First Avenger, Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Thor, Batman Begins, and The Amazing Spider-Man.

Director Patty Jenkins has signed on for the sequel already. She is the first female to have helmed a movie with a $100m+ budget.
