Twitter responds to epic success of Wonder Woman
Whether you love badass ladies or comic book movies about superheroes, you’re going to want to check out Wonder Woman. Plenty of folks already have, which helped the film bring it $103.3 million in North America alone over its debut weekend. It also resulted in some fabulous tweets from Wonder Woman fans.
It’s clear the world has been waiting a long time for this movie. And women are basking in the glow of its success.
Honestly the most unbelievable part of Wonder Woman is the idea she would ever actually leave an island of only women.

But it wasn’t just girls and women who loved the film.
dear Lord, please bless the 10yo boy sitting next to me in Wonder Woman who whispered, "Diana, no!" as she put herself in danger.

Just passed my neighborhood comic store. Saw a little boy walking out in a #WonderWoman headband, holding her comic book. Hells yeah.

#wonderwoman was a delight, made even more precious by the 6-8 yr old boys behind us who were super invested in it, "look out behind you!"

Following the record-breaking success of #WonderWoman, I'd like to propose we have an all-woman showing of Congress.

Tons of artists started sharing their sketches of Wonder Woman online following the record-breaking weekend. And supposedly comic books are just for men. Pshh.

The movie’s success also reminded Hollywood executives that they should finally give movies about women made by women a fair shot.

Now #WonderWoman's a certified hit, I look forward to all other studios scrambling for their own female-directed female-led superhero films!

If #wonderwoman is what happens when you hire women to direct blockbusters, please hire all the women. Thanks.
