Gal Gadot’s ‘Wonder Woman’ Now Biggest Non-Sequel Superhero Movie
(JTA) — “Wonder Woman,” starring the Israeli actress Gal Gadot, has become the biggest non-sequel superhero movie ever, beating out the 2002 version of “Spider-Man.”
The movie earned $404.1 million in the United States as of Monday, and has passed $800 million worldwide, with the film set to open in Japan on Friday, Forbes reported.
Forbes noted that if the film can take in another $5 million at the box office — and it is still being shown at more than 800 movie theaters in the United States — it will pass “The Hunger Games,” “Captain America: Civil War” and “Iron Man 3” in earnings.
The film is set to be released in the United States on DVD and Blu-ray on Sept. 19.
Warner Bros. has already begun preparing for the sequel, “Wonder Woman 2,” which is slated for release in December 2019.
