The 46-year-old film­maker said when the film sur­passed $100 mil­lion at the US box of­fice in its first week, it chal­lenged records cre­ated by previous block­busters, ac­cord­ing to The Hol­ly­wood Re­porter. “I hope the suc­cess of the film will lead to change and lead to other peo­ple get­ting op­por­tu­ni­ties. I hope women be­come a diverse, easy hire for all sorts of jobs in the fu­ture. It sort of de­fied ex­pec­ta­tions (at the box of­fice),” Jenk­ins said. Won­der Woman has crossed $400 mil­lion at the US box of­fice, over­tak­ing su­per­hero hits like Iron Man and Bat­man v Su­per­man: Dawn of Jus­tice. Its se­quel will be out on De­cem­ber 13, 2019.
