Wonder Woman hits $600+ 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 $600 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 the only one in her rearview mirror either, as it could pass Logan ($617 million) by next week.  

Bam!

With a loud noise, the door is thrown opened so violently, Bruce is surprised it doesn’t fly off entirely. Then again, he probably mesured the power of his kick to perfection.

“Daddy!”

Face going from surprised to pure joy in record time, Jon runs and throws himself at his father, his small arms instantly snaking around Clark’s neck, holding on as tight as he can.

Behind them, Lois releases a sigh of relief, smiling a tired but true smile as Diana comes to join her.

“I knew you’d come save us,” the little boy mumbles happily in his neck. Bruce can hear Clark breathing him in as he holds his son close, hand protectively cupping the back of his head, his tensed shoulders finally relaxing.

“I’m sorry I took so long, Champ,” he whispers, landing a kiss in Jon’s hair. His eyes open, then, immediately focusing on Lois. She looks back at him with a grin.

“Hi, honey. Guess what happen to us?,” she jokes, winning her an amused look from both the Bat and the Amazon.

“Are you - ”

“I’m fine,” she quickly reassures him, walking from the other end of the basement and towards them.

She meets him halfway and grips his wrist, closing the distance between them and gently soothing his worried brow with her fingers. “We’re both fine, I promise.”

One hand moving to Jon’s back, she smirks. “Now let’s go: I can hear Arthur losing his temper with those assholes in the other room.”
