    With the bomb ghost in a shell and with Wonder Woman not going to do too good at the box office, I think these female comic book movies will be merged with male comic book heroes.

    Signature bet with you that Wonder woman will be a box office hit?

    What constitutes a hit?

    Ok I take it back. No bet. I'm not playing the " what constitutes a hit" game.

    Let's just see who's right

    IF it makes US$600 million globally..I'd say that's a 'hit' (for DC's standard anyway)

    Dude, you are underestimating the appeal of the WW brand. Suicide Squad was a relatively unknown title and the only mainstream appeal it had was the Joker. Still that film (which wasn't that good btw) did appeal to younger audiences (thanks to those well marketed music videos!) and made over $600 million globally. WW has a broader appeal as even grandma's will want to watch that film 'cause they KNOW who is WW. This film can EASILY make over $600 million.

    It ain't about appeal. It's about figures, math and history. You will see

    I don't know off hand what numbers are considered a hit...all I know is that it will be considered a big hit. It's going to make an awful lot of money. Wonder Woman is a popular comic book character behind only Superman, Batman and Spider Man in terms of fame and status.

    I am relaying on the power of a recognizable vagina: that atrocious GAY Beauty & the Beast remake has made more than $1 billion worldwide. You can't deny it is a freaking chick flick dressed as a fairy tale. In this era of women empowerment I can see this movie appealing even to females that never watch superhero films. This is not another Disney princess, this is freaking badass WONDER WOMAN!

    This is an important film for women I believe. Wonder Woman is a strong brand, so if this flops or doesn't do well I could see woman superhero movies not getting made anymore.

    Maybe Marvel scraps their Ms. Marvel film plans, although I could also see them going the other direction and putting super effort into outdoing DC by attempting to do what they could not and make a successful female superhero film.
