Wonder Woman Hits New June Milestone For Superhero Movies

Wonder Woman continues to outpace early predictions, and the studio and fans couldn’t be happier. Now the film has landed $11.7 million on Monday, putting it in some elite company.

That company happens to be her Justice League cohort, Superman. Wonder Woman has taken the 2nd highest Monday total in June ever for a superhero movie, right behind the Superman focused Man of Steel (via Deadline). Man of Steel took in $12.6 million, so it didn’t beat Wonder Woman by much.

Ranked against all live action features in June, Wonder Woman sits at fourth place against some heavy hitting company, which includes Jurassic World ($25.3 million), Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen ($14.9 million), and Man of Steel.

The film is already the best opening ever for a film by a female director, as it took in $103.25 million over the weekend. Now the sights are aimed at the highest grossing movie by a female director list. The film would be up against Frozen at $400.7 million Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel at 219.6 million, and Twilight at $192.8 million.

Wonder Woman currently has an 88.14 on ComicBook.com’s composite rankings, and make sure to submit your review here.

Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action-adventure from director Patty Jenkins. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, Princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
