Um, CW was $408M domestic. So no, WW hasn't beaten it yet.

$413M adjusted.

Yes, domestic gross for now. WW is behind on international gross for some reason, and I suspect it may have opened quite a bit later on some markets - that is very common for movies that open in the first half of summer. I'm using domestic gross as a sort of leading indicator.

I liked Dr Strange, and it had 90% on Rotten Tomatoes. Figured it was a reasonable comparison.

Dr Strange, like several other Marvel properties, is more of a niche product, the character simply doesn't have as much broad appeal. While a couple who fit that category have been break-out grand slams, like GotG, they aren't the norm. Most are mere double-digit RoI (based on percentile) and "world-builders", Wonder Woman being a character with more universal appeal, and a more broad history (NPI), should destroy almost everything out there.

That's why BvS was such a stinker, it should have destroyed all the records, its pedigree was second to none and the producers had access to the best comic source material ever (Miller's quintessential DKR). Making a live-action, updated version of that (modified to tie into the new JLA franchise) would have earned them all the money, the obviousness pains DC fans and will forever hound the DC cinematic universe.

I agree, WW should do about as well as it appears to be doing. What is interesting is the poor launch weekend and impressive staying power.

She's been banned and boycotted in certain places too, mostly for being Israeli.
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....

Dr Strange was a good comic movie, but I've always been a fan of the Sorcerer Supreme.

Going totally TAN here, but that amulet was revealed to be an Infinity Stone. That makes it 5 we have seen, right?

Tesseract in the first Cap movie
Loki's spectre, mainly in the Avengers movies
The one GotG is playing with in the first movie
The one Thor and his friends gave to the Collector in Thor 2
Strange's amulet

That means one is missing, right? Or did I forget one?

I'm not really a comic guy, and I'm surrounded by DC people, so Dr. Strange is not much more than a name to me.

But, Marvel movies are usually fun and NA makes me predisposed to like Cargill.

Six movies and two reboots in, it's decent.

Definitely not a proper ambassador for women and girls. #TheUNareWankers

The woman is truly precious, I can't think of a better role model for girls.
