'Wonder Woman' Makes History For Female Directors


Patty Jenkins Gal Gadot

It was only appropriate that a superhero movie as empowering as 'Wonder Woman' would be directed by a woman, and now Patty Jenkins has managed to make history with her film having the largest opening weekend ever for a female director. It's an important moment for feminism in the media.

'Wonder Woman' flew effortlessly to the top of the box office over the weekend and grossed $100.5 million in domestic ticket sales. It easily beat the previous record holder, 'Fifty Shades of Grey' directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson, which earned a comparatively meagre $85.2 million in its opening weekend.

Patty Jenkins Talks About How A Film Might Be A "Disservice To Women"

Ahead of its highly-anticipated cinematic release on Friday this week, Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins has spoken in a new interview about the pressures of directing such a major project, how she selects working on films and her departure from the Thor sequel nearly six years ago.

Jenkins’ debut helming a major superhero picture has been a very long time coming, having been at one time set to deliver the Marvel Cinematic Universe sequel Thor: The Dark World before quitting the project in December 2011, citing creative differences.

“There have been things that have crossed my path that seemed like troubled projects,” said Jenkins in a feature with The Hollywood Reporter, not referring to the project by name but it being rather obvious what she was talking about.

Patty Jenkins may be the director of upcoming DC Extended Universe release 'Wonder Woman', but what many people don't know is that she was working alongside Marvel Studios back in 2011, originally set to direct the 'Thor' sequel, 'Thor: The Dark World', otherwise known as 'Thor 2'.

In the same year, she and the company parted way citing "creative differences", before Alan Taylor ('Game of Thrones') jumped on board to work on what the world knows today as the second standalone 'Thor' film. So is leaving those proceedings something Jenkins now regrets? Not a chance.
