"It might be a $10 million movie or it might be a $200 million movie".

The story starts with Diana who is a little girl from the island of Themiscyra whose mother (the queen of Amazon) often told her the stories of their origin, she told her how these superwomen come to the earth in order to defeat the Ares, the god of battle. It's the best preview night for a female director, surpassing Sam Taylor-Johnson's Fifty Shades of Grey ($8.6 million).

Breathtaking and action-packed, with an occasional dark edge and plenty of humor, "Wonder Woman", more than any of Warner Bros.' DC Comics films, channels the one emotion from the company's classic cinema lore that has been missing from its superhero movie slate: inspiration. Producer Charles Roven represented Warner Bros on this matter, and explained to CinemaBlend why they made a decision to not include a post-credit scene.

"The time is absolutely right to bring Wonder Woman to movie audiences", says Jenkins. The fact that she is one of the Marvels is quickly, and briefly, dealt with by a briefcase she receives from Bruce Wayne with a photograph of her in her Wonder Woman costume from around World War I.

She's also hoping to work on a limited TV series based on a script her husband, Sam Sheridan, wrote, potentially starring Chris Pine, who plays Steve Trevor in Wonder Woman. And when we say "more-talented", we mean more talented than Zack Snyder, director of "Man of Steel" and "Batman v Superman" - but "Wonder Woman" is also much steadier than David Ayer's "Suicide Squad". She's a badass, and at the same time she stands for love, forgiveness and benevolence in a complicated world.

After years of anticipation, the first lady of DC Comics Diana Prince stepped front and center into the spotlight to headline the first female-fronted superhero film in the modern-day superhero renaissance we're now living in.

And everyone is waiting to know if Gal Gadot's super powers will be able to beat the box office records of Batman and Superman of the DC universe. But I don't think that we want to feel that we're forced to do something just because we didn't in the past. Director Patty Jenkins' take on a character who has been a feminist icon is incredible and the fact the film passes the Bechdel test makes my heart melt.
