"Patty's vision mesmerised the audience. She is a real talent. Clearly, this is a movie that is resonating with moviegoers around the globe. I am sure we will be seeing a lot more of Diana on the big screen," Warner Bros' domestic distribution president Jeff Goldstein told Variety.
Wonder Woman is a prequel (of sorts) to DC Comics' 2016 superhero film, Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice. In the film, Gal Gadot plays Amazonian warrior princess Diana, who realises her true potential as Wonder Woman after she helped a World War I pilot (played by Chris Pine), whose plane crashed near Diana's combat ground in Themyscira.
