There is nobody more stoked with the glowing Wonder Woman reviews than Gal Godot herself.

The Warner Bros. and DC Comics film appears to have delivered on massively high expectations - as of the Sunday morning the super hero film is looking at a $100.5 million domestic opening weekend from 4,165 locations.

Before "Wonder Woman", Jenkins' only feature was "Monster" - an Academy Award victor that she made more than a decade ago with an $8 million budget.
