It comes after Jenkins revealed the second instalment of "Wonder Woman" will take place in America.

Wonder Woman owned the box office and was showered with glowing reviews from critics, but that's not all it got.

Posting an article from the associated press announcing the North American debut of the female-led superhero film reaching $100.5 million in the box office, Evans gave a warm and explosive congrats to Wonder Woman.

While sitting down with Katie Couric for an interview with Yahoo News, Gadot was happy to discuss how the movie has become a symbol of female empowerment and said who she thinks would win in a fight between Thor and Diana Prince (Diana, duh).

"Wonder Woman" is the first film from the current DC Extended Universe - which began with 2013's "Man of Steel" - to earn a "certified fresh" rating from Rotten Tomatoes.

Jenkins went on to explain that she was returning to make a sequel because of the opportunities it presented, both in terms of the story and in working with the cast again. The final few minutes of Wonder Woman make it clear he has died - and it would be near-impossible to imagine a scenario where Steve miraculously escaped death - as the movie brings us back to the present day, with Diana in Paris, gazing at a photo of herself with Steve Trevor during the war. That puts the worldwide total at $223 million after just six days of global release.

For now, we can all bask in the glory that was Wonder Woman, as the DCEU finally finds its footing.

Fifty-two percent of Wonder Woman's audience was female, which is notable difference from the at least 60% male audience that usually accompanies superhero films. "It's a attractive story to tell, [and it's] an important time to tell it with people that I love".
