Initial estimates have put Wonder Woman’s opening weekend to be anywhere between $65 million to $105 million.
So far, Wonder Woman has been marketed with the words “courage,” “power,” and “wonder.” However, if The Wrap‘s reported initial estimates for the Goddess of Truth’s opening weekend box office earnings come true, Warner Bros. might want to consider adding a new word: “wealth.”
The Wrap is reporting that independent trackers are placing Wonder Woman‘s opening weekend earnings to fall in the range of $65 million to $105 million. The higher number is definitely a lofty goal, but the $65 million figure is still a respectable sum.

DC fans are definitely keeping their fingers crossed, hoping that the Amazon warrior will lift the DC Extended Universe out of it’s rut. We’ll just have to wait until June 2, to see if she can do it.
