Amid a summer of duds, one woman shone. Wonder Woman is officially the biggest movie of the summer. It’s also:
- the top-grossing movie directed by a woman.
- domestically, the highest grossing installment in the DC Extended Universe that started with 2013’s Man of Steel.
- bigger than Iron Man, the movie that launched Marvel’s massive cinematic universe.
- and about to become the biggest superhero origin movie ever, when it overtakes Sam Raimi’s 2002 Spider-Man, unadjusted for inflation.
