Wonder Woman, the now-iconic Warner Bros. superhero flick starring Israel's own Gal Gadot, hit a domestic USA earnings total of $404.1 million this week, and pushed past the $800 million mark worldwide.

While Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League director Zack Snyder was a producer on this year's biggest film of the summer, Wonder Woman, Patty Jenkins has revealed that she had nearly no involvement at all in Snyder's upcoming DC superhero team-up film, Justice League.

"I just hope - and am touched by it - and I think it's wonderful if the success of this film can lead to change and lead to other people getting opportunities". "I hope that women become a diverse, easy hire for all kinds of things in the future".

The film's accolades began early.

As the film continues to dominate, surpassing Dollars 400 million at the domestic box office and passing other superhero hits like "Iron Man", "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice" and 'Suicide Squad, ' it "exceeded all of the projections, although not our own hopes". "It sort of defied expectations (at the box office)", Jenkins told the reporters.

Lucy Davis, who plays the slightly clumsy but oh-so charming Etta in the film, credits the overwhelming success to the closing scene in which Diana (played by Gal Gadot) discovers how to truly defeat forces of evil: through love. Here's to hoping that aspiration becomes a reality soon.
