Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman keeps breaking records, and it’s not showing signs of stopping anytime soon. The box-office juggernaut broke another record recently when it became the most-tweeted film of 2017, having been tweeted about more than 2.1 million times.
The film’s domination of Twitter doesn’t end there. Wonder Woman has also become the most tweeted-about film character of the year, beating out fellow DC hero Batman, who took second place. Steve Trevor, Wonder Woman’s male counterpart, came in third.
The film, which now holds the record for biggest opening weekend for a female-directed movie, is set to continue its box-office domination this weekend, beating out Tom Cruise’s The Mummy reboot. While Wonder Woman‘s positive reception almost certainly helped boost its box office numbers, its social media success certainly didn’t hurt.
While earlier reports indicated that Jenkins had already signed on to direct a Wonder Woman sequel, those later proved to be a bit premature, though negotiations are set to begin soon. Though Jenkins’ return isn’t a certainty, she does seem to have thought through what she’d like to do if she returns for the next film, saying that it would be set in the United States.
In theaters now, Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot as Diana, Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Robin Wright as General Antiope, Danny Huston as General Erich Ludendorff, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Elena Anaya as Doctor Poison and Lucy Davis as Etta Candy.
