'Wonder Woman' marks DC's triumphant return to great storytelling

Given Wonder Woman's almost eight decade history, it is safe to assume that comic book fans will be packing theaters this weekend not only to enjoy a great film, but to see how many Easter eggs they can spot. Gadot's Wonder Woman swoons when she sees babies, melts when tasting ice cream and looks at battle with a fierce eye.

Nevertheless, $11 million is nothing to scoff at, especially for a film that's a solo debut as opposed to a team-up movie like Batman v Superman or even Suicide Squad.

Roven revealed that there are now no plans in development and that the success of the film will determine what future Wonder Woman will have in the DCEU.

China is moving full speed ahead to be that country. "Not just for four years, the term of a president". What's more, over the haul, climate change itself threatens to impose huge costs on the economy.

Gal Gadot is Israeli, which means she's Jewish, like me, but also tan, and hard to understand, and from a country that could explode at any moment-this reminds me of my own body, and I love that. As far back as 1989, George Perez's Wonder Woman Vol. 2 clearly depicted Menalippe as being in a romantic relationship with Penelope, again establishing that the Amazons are far from strictly heterosexual.

Wonder Woman contains a few more Easter eggs, but there really are not many. Justice Leaguers with movies on the way (Aquaman, Flash, Batman) would be wise to follow her lead.

"Wonder Woman" is enhanced by its setting in the past: World War I. This allows Wonder Woman, arguably the most revered female superhero of all time, to get the uninterrupted origin story she deserves without the interference of other characters, before her eventual call-up to the Justice League.

The recent detection appears to be the farthest yet, with the black holes located about 3 billion light-years away. This extraterrestrial merger formed an enormous pit of darkness, with some 49 times the mass of the sun.

Directed by Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, David Thewlis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner and Saïd Taghmaoui. Chris Pine plays Steve Trevor, the charming spy who lures Diana to London, where she discovers her superpowers.

Wonder Woman is projected to earn around $100 million this weekend, pushing past the studio's initial $65 million estimate, which would have put the movie in the same range as the openings of the Captain America and Thor franchises. But Wonder Woman has come to be the superhero film we all deserve. Remembering the childhood tale of Ares, the vanquished God of War, who would return to make mankind destroy itself, Diana sets out to kill Ares and bring peace to the world, much against her mother's wishes.

Moviegoers rated "Wonder Woman" highly with 85% giving it an "excellent" or "very good" ranking, according to comScore/Screen Engine PostTrak audience survey.
