'Wonder Woman' Breaks All Kinds of Glass Ceilings

Everyone is talking about the empowering, record-smashing, box-office busting superhero flick "Wonder Woman", but director Patty Jenkins already has her eye on the next one.

Wonder Womanwas a box office smash on its opening weekend, raking in more than $100 million domestically - a new record for a movie directed by a woman.

"On close-up I looked very much like Wonder Woman", the 31-year-old actress said.

While speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Jenkins revealed that there won't be any deleted scenes for the special features but did talk about how they replaced one scene entirely in order to further flesh out Wonder Woman's character and her reaction to the horrors of war.

The Warner Bros. and DC Comics film had generated a huge buzz, based partly on a critical reception that was unusually warm for a superhero film; it got a 93 percent rating on the Rotten Tomatoes website.

"The surreality of, 'I can't believe we're getting to make Wonder Woman,' and also, 'Oh my God, we have to make the greatest Wonder Woman of all time!' " she said.

"We're incredibly proud of "Wonder Woman" and thrilled that it has resonated with critics and moviegoers everywhere", Sue Kroll, head of marketing and distribution at Warner Bros. You know it's what Diana would want. That indicates that the well-reviewed film's strong word of mouth is giving "Wonder Woman" more momentum than usual. "It was actually something that had been in the script originally". "So what you saw is exactly the movie that we were always making". We can't wait to see what she does for the sequel.

The film's estimated $100.5 million take for the three-day weekend helped director Patty Jenkins break another glass ceiling, with the best domestic opening for a female director.
