PATTY JENKINS HOPES THAT WONDER WOMAN OPENS DOORS FOR WOMEN
Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins (above) has said that she hopes the success of the film, starring Gal Gadot (below), will give women access to “diverse” job prospects. 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.
