Wonder Woman has broken the box office record for the highest opening numbers for a film directed by a woman. Following the impressive achievement, there has been plenty of praise for director Patty Jenkins and star Gal Gadot as fellow directors, Marvel stars, and Gadot’s Fast & Furious costars shared their praise on social media.
Another notable star adding their voice to this celebration is none other than Lynda Carter, who’d previously held the mantle — or rather the tiara — of Wonder Woman on her television show. The actress, who currently plays the president on Supergirl, tweeted, “Wonder Woman is breaking box office records!!! Bravo, Patty Jenkins! Bravo, Gal Gadot! Bravo, Chris Pine!”
It wasn’t long until Jenkins responded, retweeting Carter’s warm sentiments with one of her own: “Bravo you Lynda. Come on. Let’s admit what was major in starting all of this.”
Jenkins also took a moment to address a fan question about Carter’s lack of cameo in the film — and hopes that it might be featured in an already demanded sequel.
“Oh we tried, tried, tried,” tweeted the director of the Academy Award-winning Monster. “And we won’t stop trying.”
The latest DCEU film has already garnered a lot of fans in Hollywood. Star Wars‘ Lupita Nyong’o penned a glowing review on Instagram, while Gadot’s Marvel rival Chris Hemsworth happily admitted that her Wonder Woman would best his Thor.
Wonder Woman is currently out in theaters.
