The incredible Amazon's modern-day cinematic solo debut shattered box office records for a film directed by a woman - in this case, Patty Jenkins, whose effort brought in more than $100 million. With Wonder Woman setting the box office alight with a $100 million US box office opening, talk has already turned to the now-inevitable sequel.

First, director Patty Jenkins just smashed the record for the largest opening weekend for a female director, previously held by Sam Taylor-Johnson for Fifty Shades of Grey's $85.1 million opening. As The Hollywood Reporter points out, her haul of $100.6 million is the 16th highest for a superhero film's opening-weekend domestic box office.

Like Gadot, Jenkins is contractually obligated to return for the second installment of Wonder Woman. The film is also the best reviewed to come out of the DC Extended Universe in years.

Wonder Woman on Friday became the first major studio tentpole blockbuster release to center around a female superhero.

Throughout the modern era of superhero films, audiences have always been waiting for one thing: A well-made female-led comic book movie.

Wonder Woman has finally smashed the superhero glass ceiling.
