Warner Bros. and DC’s Wonder Woman should command at least $65 million in its North American debut in June, according to early tracking.
That’s on par with the first outings in the Thor and Captain America franchises.
Wonder Woman is unchartered territory in that it’s the first female-led superhero movie from a major Hollywood studio since Elektra. Gal Gadot stars in the title role, while Patty Jenkins directed.
Those with access to tracking say interest is strongest among males who are 25 and older, followed by females 25 and older. The good news for Warners is that the movie is appealing to younger males and females as well.
Wonder Woman opens in theaters June 2.
Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Connie Nielsen and Elena Anaya also star.
