I’m not really worried about the DCEU becoming lighter as time goes on as I always knew it was going to play out that way and I trust the creators to do it without becoming like Marvel.
I am however very concerned that the anti-DCEU crowd, who have acted horribly and like bratty children throwing a tantrum, are going to feel vindicated and think that Their behavior is in any way acceptable in how They approach these films or any others.
People who are complaining about Superman’s glasses disguising his identity have obviously never worn glasses. You take them off around your friends, people who see you every single day, and they’re like ,,WHAT THE FUCK, YOU LOOK SO DIFFERENT! IS THAT HOW YOUR EYES LOOK LIKE?! NO WAY! WHO ARE YOU???“
Wonder Woman hits $652+ million World-Wide, Passing Man of Steel
WOW, Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel had nearly double the budget as well as an ensemble cast of Hollywood A-List actors that included Russell Crowe, Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, and Laurence Fishburne. It also had a very long post-production to polish the movie. Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman, on the other hand, had a cast whose biggest star was only Chris Pine, not known as a box office draw.
Patty Jenkins sure did the impossible with a smooth production that practically left no scenes on the chopping block and costing only $150 mil (the lowest budget in the DCEU). With universal acclaim from fans and critics alike, Wonder Woman will surpass Man of Steel easily proclaiming it as DCEU’s best solo movie and one of the greatest superhero origin movies ever. Not only that but Patty Jenkins will be the highest grossing live-action movie by a female director!
It’s in the books! Wonder Woman has pulled in $289 million domestically as of Wednesday and will enter the weekend with a box office total of over $292 million. That will put the film ahead of 2012’s Man of Steel, which left theaters with a total of $291 million (via Forbes), and Wonder Woman is only about to enter its fourth week.
Worldwide the film has also succeeded, already pulling in over $652
million. Man of Steel ended up making $668 million after it left theaters, and Wonder Woman is easily poised to pass it. It won’t be the only one in her rearview mirror either, as it passed Logan ($617 million).
