After playing Gisele in three Fast & Furious movies, she auditioned for Wonder Woman without ever knowing what role she was testing for. While DC and Warner Bros. found financial success with properties like Batman v. Superman and Suicide Squad, the Jenkins-led project showcases that DC can deliver both financially and with audiences and critics alike.
After opening this past weekend, the film has already broken a number of records.
The first and last scenes of Wonder Woman contain a very subtle Justice League Easter egg, but it turns out there might have been another tiny connection to the DC Extended Universe hidden within the film. In the end, bolstered by rapturous reviews, the film opened to over $100 million, meaning that Jenkins now has a tremendous amount of leverage when it comes to negotiating a pay raise. It turns out to be all innocent from Diana's point of view, but it's just one of several scenes that are very amusing. Hurry- before they sell out- no little girl - or a big one- should be anything but Wonder Woman this Halloween! And this sequel will take place somewhere in the US. As Diana walks the street of early 20th-century London, she encounters an escape artist in shackles. She's gone on to direct episodes of Entourage, Arrested Development, and The Killing, and even walked away from the opportunity to direct Thor: The Dark World. With Wright mentioning that we will learn more of the history between Antiope and Hippolyta, we are most likely going to see flashbacks with her rather than Antiope suddenly being back alive.

Barcelona come in second at $3.64 billion, followed by Liga Santander and Champions League winners Real Madrid at $3.58 billion. With a new 61,000-seater stadium under construction, Tottenham Hotspur ($1.06 billion) rounds off the top 10.
Sources say the studio intends to begin negotiations with Jenkins shortly (although the exact timing is unclear), and the filmmaker and her reps at CAA, Anonymous Content and Jackoway Tyerman will enjoy enormous leverage.
In Wonder Woman, Dr. Maru and General Ludendorff are hard at work on a chemical formula that will help Germany win WWI by literally melting the gas masks off of the opposition.
While most other superheroes of the time - before censors - were hurting criminals, Wonder Woman would try to change them by taking them to "Reform Island".
