Wonder Woman 2: Patty Jenkins hasn't signed up yet

Putting records aside, Wonder Woman has broken barriers of other kinds. I'm also thinking the Vietnam War, but the 60s just had the coolest fashion -have you seen The Man from UNCLE? .

Wonder Woman shines in every fight scene, whether against German soldiers or in training against her fellow Amazons.

Jenkins has been vocal about her ideas for a sequel, prompting many to believe her return was a sure deal. Female superhero movies have been a hit and miss (remember the 2004 disaster "Catwoman?").

The film, which had a production budget of $150 million, garnered an "A" CinemaScore from audiences and a 93% score on review site Rotten Tomatoes, which makes it one of the best-reviewed superhero movies of all time. With dream team Gal Gadot and director Patty Jenkins committed to the franchise, fans are excited for the follow-up already.

But one more impressive detail you may not have known was that actor Gal Gadot, who played Wonder Woman, was pregnant while filming. Wonder Woman appears in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice and will the forthcoming Justice League, so her character is getting more and more screen time. So far Gadot has been taking it all in stride and handling herself quite well in all of her appearances and interviews.

Director Patty Jenkins's film took 103.1 million dollars (£79.7 million) in the USA, the biggest opening for a movie directed by a woman. Now, Gal has added another feather to her hat by revealing that she was actually five months pregnant while shooting a major portion of the film. "I was like 'I need her to see some brutality, '" Jenkins told The Hollywood Reporter.

All I can say is it was a dilemma.

Compassionate. Brave. Inspirational - there is a lot to love about the character of Wonder Woman and this new movie.

I know some folks still get uncomfortable when these types of conversations come up, and that's fine.
