The Success of ‘Wonder Woman’

In June 2017, the much-awaited movie adaptation of the blockbuster comic book “Wonder Woman” was released worldwide. It is the fourth installment in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) which is the media franchise behind Man of Steel (2013), Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), and Suicide Squad (2016).

“Wonder Woman” is the story of Diana, Princess of Themyscira, Daughter of Hyppolyta. The movie shows the making of Diana as a superhero.

A few days after the release of “Wonder Woman,” an outpour of positive feedback was felt all over the Internet. The movie has also broken several records and set significant cinematic milestones. Many people couldn’t help but say that the success of “Wonder Woman” is more than just a success in filmmaking but also a success for women.

The director, Patty Jenkins, now holds the record for having the biggest domestic opening of all time for a female director. She also became the first female director of a superhero movie. Her achievements as the film’s director are said to have opened doors for more female directors to be recognized for their abilities to create big-budget blockbuster films.

“Wonder Woman” is the first female superhero film in more than a decade. Many critics referred to the fourth installment as the best DCEU film to date. Most reviews had good things to say about Gal Gadot’s modern depiction of the famous superhero who fights with love and compassion. In fact, many fans say Gal Gadot’s charisma had a lot to do with the film’s success. Many people even found it hard to believe that Gal Gadot was five months pregnant when “Wonder Woman” was being filmed.

Bigger than the charisma of Gal Gadot is the fact that “Wonder Woman” is a story of a female protagonist which is what most fans are celebrating. A lot of people say that the film is more than just a guilty pleasure. Years after what seemed like an endless release of male-led superhero films, many fans were delighted to finally see a successful superhero movie that focuses on the female lead’s feminine traits, traits that are often considered weaknesses of the female sex.

People who have read the comic books where the story of “Wonder Woman” originated also applauded how much the movie has departed from the original comic book story to form a modern and relevant feminist icon that is very necessary in the 21st century.
