It's learned Wonder Woman is currently kicking all kinds of butt at the box office over in Asia.

Deadline reports Wonder Woman debuts with $6.3 million in six overseas markets in Asia.

Some numbers include grossing:

• $1.3M in Taiwan and topping the debut of Batman v. Superman; also out performing Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales by more than double.

• $601K in Hong Kong ($829K two-day); WB's fourth biggest ever and beat out the likes of Deadpool, Suicide Squad, Doctor Strange, Ant-Man, Man Of Steel, Logan, Thor, First Avenger and GOTG 1 & 2.

• $1.2M in Korea; topped Doctor Strange, Thor, First Avenger and the GOTG pics.

• $803K in Indonesia; topped all the movies listed above except Batman vs. Superman.

Wonder Woman opens Friday officially in the U.S. with more foreign markets as the weekend progresses.

"Wonder Woman" has a June 2, 2017 release directed by Patty Jenkins starring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Connie Nielsen, David Thewlis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner, and Saïd Taghmaoui .  


Wonder Woman hits movie theaters around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
