‘Wonder Woman’ made $821.8 million globally in 2016. Its domestic opening of $103.3 set numerous records, including the biggest-ever debut by a female director (Jenkins), and the highest-grossing female-led superhero movie ever. It eventually became the highest-grossing film of any kind directed by a woman, and the highest-earning superhero origin film, male or female, although it has since been bested in that area.
