Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins‘ life has swung dramatically from getting fired off Thor 2 in 2011 to having a blockbuster hit with Wonder Woman and talking with the studio about a sequel. The director’s take on the iconic female hero won its second weekend in the box office and had the smallest drop between first and second weeks among superheroes movies made since 2010.
Besides the financial success, the film is also having a cultural impact on young boys and girls around the world. Jenkins received a list of positive incidents coming from the film and shared it on her social media:
My producer just sent me this… ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE! This makes every hard day worth it. Thank you to whomever wrote it!!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ pic.twitter.com/3DzIaMueIh
