Three weeks ago, we surveyed the history of female-directed movies and found in adjusted ticket prices, Amy Heckerling’s 1989 “Look Who’s Talking” was the winner at $303 million. That seemed like a high-end goal for “Wonder Woman,” but not only will Jenkins’ movie will crush that record by Saturday, it will set a “clean” record that beats out the highest unadjusted numbers as well. READ MORE: Female Directors Power List: See Which Filmmakers Grossed Over $100 Million Phyllida Lloyd’s “Mamma Mia” has been the biggest worldwide live-action film directed by a woman, adjusted at roughly $730 million. So though it will take a little longer, “Wonder Woman” should top that one as well. The top two female-directed all-time hits are animated, and co-directed with men. Adjusted, “Frozen” (Jennifer Lee) is at $433 million, and “Shrek” (Vicky Jenson) $418 million. Both seem just out of reach for “Wonder Woman,” but not impossible. For all its success, one discordant note is foreign is underperf...
When “Wonder Woman” opened to $103 million, matching the already-enormous “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” seemed impossible. The Marvel sequel already had passed $350 million, with more to come. After its own strong hold, “Guardians” is at $375 million domestic and will likely get to $395 million. That’s at the upper end of the “Wonder Woman” projection, but it will be a tight race.
For any wide release, the opening weekend gives some indication of its domestic total. A multiple of three or more is excellent, but that’s tough to match for any film that opens above $100 million. If “Wonder Woman” hits $380 million, it will have an extraordinary 3.7 multiple. Already, it will have a very credible 2.7 times multiple. But at 3.7, it would not only leave “Guardians” in the dust, but also beat every other comic book movie from D.C. or Marvel going back to 1990. Its performance would best “The Dark Knight,” “Spider-Man,” “Iron Man,” “The Avengers,” and all their iterations. (The other best comic book character performer for the era? “Men in Black” in 1997, with a nearly five times multiple.)
Along with with the animation studios, D.C. and Marvel are the most reliable provider of top grossing films. Between them, 57 titles have adjusted domestic totals of $100 million or more, with 10 grossing over $430 million. This includes two “Avengers,” two “Dark Knight” movies, Tim Burton’s “Batman,” three “Spider-Man” releases, the 1978 “Superman,” and “Iron Man 3” — all told, the pantheon of the genre. At $380 million, “Wonder Woman” would rank #14 among these smashes; $400 million would bring it up to #12. But among franchise/character-starting titles, $380 million would place it behind only “The Avengers,” “Spider-Man,” and “Iron Man.” It will be ahead “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Deadpool,” “X-Men,” Christopher Nolan’s initial “Batman,” “Captain America,” “Thor,” and all similar universes. And within the awkwardly categorized D.C. Extended Universe series Warners currently oversees, it will easily top the other three (“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” “Suicide Squad,” and “...
This final record is impressive, but also shows how far the business has to go. At $380 million, “Wonder Woman” would rank about #150, just behind such classics as “2001: A Space Odyssey” and “Rain Man” as well as recent smashes “Inside Out” and “American Sniper.” That means the remaining 149 films were either directed or co-directed by men. It’s a higher ranking than any African-American directed film (though worldwide, “Furious 7” is in the upper echelon, now nearing $1.3 billion). The all-time list remains overwhelmingly white male. What Patty Jenkins has achieved is spectacular. But unless it opens the doors to many more like her, it will stand as a Hollywood anomaly rather a sea change.

There were rumblings of potential new TV pilots during the 1990s, although nothing materialised, while the producers of Smallville also hoped to have Diana make an appearance, but the idea was nixed due to a feature film adaptation that Joss Whedon was developing for Warner Bros.
