Gal Gadot and Chris Hemsworth both agree that Wonder Woman would beat Thor in a fight
. Some fans might dispute that, but it's clear Diana Prince's film beat the Son of Odin's. With a 93 percent
Rotten Tomatoes and a domestic opening of $103 million
, "Wonder Woman" has outperformed some very good male-focused comic book movies. Here's a sampling that makes the case for more superwomen on screen.
The first "Thor" scored 77 percent on Rotten Tomatoes while its sequel, "The Dark World," only grossed $85 million in its opening weekend.
Besides blowing past the $48 million opening for "Batman Begins," "Wonder Woman" scored higher on the Tomatometer than every Batman film ever made except for "The Dark Knight," which just edged out Diana's big debut with a 94 percent score.
"Wonder Woman" finished with a higher opening than Captain America's first two films, with "The Winter Soldier" posting a $95 million opening.
"Wolverine" has been the face of the "X-Men" franchise, yet "Wonder Woman" had a bigger opening than every film featuring Wolverine. It also matched Wolverine's best-received movie, "Logan," on the Tomatometer.
"Wonder Woman" matched 2004's "Spider-Man 2," Spidey's best showing on the Tomatometer. "Wonder Woman" also beat the domestic openings for that film and both "Amazing Spider-Man" films.
"Wonder Woman" posted a higher RT score and overseas opening than both "Guardians" films, and also topped the $94.3 million domestic opening for the first "Guardians" film.
Benedict Cumberbatch's entry into the comic book realm, "Doctor Strange," won critics and audiences over (90 percent on RT), but its $85 million opening couldn't match Diana's debut.
