It’s been a long time coming but our favorite female superhero finally made it to the cinema in her own movie.
Not only did Wonder Woman make a respectable $103.1 million on its opening weekend, it was the also best opening weekend for a female director ever. In this case, Patty Jenkins. It even made more money than Iron Man when it premiered.
This is quite a breakthrough as film and TV studios seem to be very nervous about producing female-centric superhero offerings.
Marvel tentatively released Jessica Jones to Netflix but the second season is still being worked out whereas Daredevil is now on its second season, and Luke Cage and Iron Fist have had their own first seasons.
Marvel’s Agent Carter only made two seasons before it was cancelled. Maybe the reasons they were not as popular as they could have been due to the scheduling and not being available on mainstream channels but both have a very large fan base.
