Wonder Woman is expected to open around $86-90 million, which is similar to Marvel's Doctor Strange ($85M) and Guardians of the Galaxy ($94.3M) movies.

Wonder Woman currently has a 93% Fresh rating at Rotten Tomatoes with 208 positive reviews and only 15 negative. Likewise, 93% of the audience stated they liked the movie.
