While I'm yet to see any Wonder Woman toys or clothing items locally, a number of books have been popping up in stores lately. Meanwhile, the Israeli actress' bonus is still not known.
On the upside in the Wonder Woman universe, it was announced earlier this week that Gail Simone, WW's longest-running female writer, has been tapped to pen a six-issue crossover series with Conan the Barbarian - because there can never really be enough Wonder Woman. The film saw a domestic opening weekend of $103.1 million in which director Patty Jenkins became the record holder for the highest opening weekend for a female director of all time in the United States. You're right at a moment when you wish you had more and it becomes more.
Diana makes Steve take her to the war in exchange for his freedom from the island.
So if Gadot signed a deal similar to Cavill's, the "Wonder Woman" bonus checks should soon be rolling in. "Her vision for Diana was in line with mine", she said.
Filmmaker Sofia Coppola recently received the coveted Palm D'Or for her remake period drama The Beguiled, a film first made in 1971 by Don Siegel, starring Clint Eastwood.
Considering that she holds almost a 50/50 split between domestic and foreign, keeps her percentage drop from weekend to weekend low, I think it's hard to tell until Spider-Man: Homecoming opens in July. Wonder Woman stands her ground with shield in hand and deflects heavy machine gun fire, giving her male troops the opportunity and courage to charge from the trenches and defeat the German forces there, saving the townspeople that she was previously told were doomed.
The dynamic duo of Gadot and Jenkins is more proof that Hollywood studios can entrust big budget productions to women. There is a gender gap in payments in Hollywood but it is not as outrageous as some news claim.
Of course, the immediate impact of Wonder Woman's success is what fans have been clamoring for for many years: more female leads. I love her as a person.
