AceShowbiz - "Wonder Woman" opened at box office with rave reviews, including those from celebrities such as %cLupita Nyong'o%, %cJessica Chastain% and %cKerry Washington%. Now Captain America depicter %cChris Evans% also cheered when knowing that the DC movie did very well in its first weekend, as it nabbed a spectacular $103.2 million at North American box office.
Evans took to his Twitter account to send his congratulations, replying a tweet from The Associated Press about the fantastic debut of the movie starring %cGal Gadot%. "Wow!!!! HUGE congrats," the actor tweeted.
Other Marvel Cinematic Universe members also expressed their delights on the movie. Hulk depicter %cMark Ruffalo% cheered on the movie, while "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" director James Gunn sent "many congrats" to "Wonder Woman" helmer Patty Jenkins.
Many congrats to @PattyJenks and her awesome Wonder Woman on what looks to be an over 100 million opening weekend! ❤️— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) June 3, 2017
With the movie going well both domestically and internationally, a talk about sequel has been brought up. It was recently reported that director Patty Jenkins and Gadot were "contractually commited to a second film." But there is a question whether %cChris Pine%, who portrays Steve Trevor in "Wonder Woman", will return in the possible sequel.
Regarding the matter, Jenkins said, "All I can say is it was a dilemma. It's something I hope we don't talk about in the public [because] I want people to see, but it's very hard to know which characters will be in the next movie because of the time period, so it's a big question." Pine, however, would be open for more "Wonder Woman" films, including spin-offs. "The movie's gotta come out, and then we'll see. What about 'Wonder Man'?" teased Pine.
Before she was Wonder Woman she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained warrior. When a pilot crashes and tells of conflict in the outside world, she leaves home to fight a war to end all wars, discovering her full powers and true destiny.
"Wonder Woman" is currently screening at U.S. theaters.
