Wonder Woman notched over $100 million dollars at the box office over the course of the movie’s opening weekend and continues power ahead, both critically and financially.
Hollywood stars have taken to their various social media platforms to praise both Gal Gadot’s portrayal of Diana Prince as well as Patty Jenkin’s superhero directorial debut. Now, Chris Evans — the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Steve Rogers/Captain America — has reached out to congratulate the movie on Twitter.
“Wow!!!!” Evans posted on the microblogging service. “HUGE congrats.”
Evans rounded the tweet out by adding in an explosion emoji while tagging the movie’s official Twitter profile.
Grossing $122.5 million internationally, Wonder Woman’s $223 million was enough to unseat Fifty Shades of Grey as the largest opening for a woman-directed film.
