Even Marvel actors love Gal Gadot in DC's new 'Wonder Woman'

Posting an article from the associated press announcing the North American debut of the female-led superhero film reaching $100.5 million in the box office, Evans gave a warm and explosive congrats to Wonder Woman.

"Wonder Woman", which starred Gal Gadot and Chris Pine, grossed a total of $223 million in worldwide sales.

Wonder Womanwas a box office smash on its opening weekend, raking in more than $100 million domestically - a new record for a movie directed by a woman.

Fox's PG animated superhero movie Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie was a distant second place, bringing in an estimated $23.5 million in its opening weekend.

The film sets a record for a debut by a female director and ranks among the best-reviewed action films of all time, garnering a 93 percent approval rating from Rotten Tomatoes, an aggregator of professional reviews.

The Gal Gadot-fronted superhero movie did especially well in the US.

"Wonder Woman" didn't surpass the openings of previous DC Comics adaptations: the terribly received "Batman v. Superman" and "Suicide Squad".

Kevin Durant sends love to Rihanna after Warriors win title
Sheldon Glasgow, who has been living in Oakland for 10 years, said he wasn't angry the Warriors were moving. For three years in the regular season, 67-73-67, the Warriors are the best ever.


He said: "We really look forward to is the day when a movie directed by a woman and telling a woman's story is no longer news because it was successful - or even that it was produced at all".

The Wonder Woman, is a DC Comics character of the same name and is the fourth installment in the DC Extended Universe.

Wonder Woman cost $149 million to make, not including marketing costs, while estimates for weekend sales ranged from $89 million at Box Office Mojo to $111 million at BoxOfficePro.com.

"Wonder Woman" probably won't be what you expect. "They're about women as well", said Jeff Goldstein, distribution chief for Warner Bros.

Fans of Wonder Woman know very well that no ordinary man can defeat her in a fight, but can she stand toe to toe with someone like Thor?

AND it's the film that gifted us that goosebump-inducing guitar riff... "It might be a $10 million movie or it might be $200 million movie", she explained.
