"Wonder Woman": A near ideal tale of coming into your own

Gal Gadot's

'Wonder Woman' lassos gold at the box office

And it would seem that working on Wonder Woman bonded these powerful women together in a completely unique way.

Gal Gadot was pretty, smart and confidant enough to represent her country, but she didn't even make it to top 15.

No, an Amazonian warrior with a shield and a lasso can hold her own just fine, in addition to bringing an innovative change to the entire superhero genre.

"Another girl very seriously asked the teacher if she could ditch her uniform for the Wonder Woman armor bc she 'wanted to be ready if she needed to save the world, '" the note reads. As per Jenkins' tweet, her producer received the detailed list from someone who works with kindergarten children.

Jenkins' sentiments speak to the outraged men who felt they had been discriminated against due to their inability to participate in the women-only event.

The supporting cast includes David Thewlis as Ares, the baddie half-brother of Diana, Robin Wright as battle hardened Antiope - Diana's aunt and Lucy Davis as Etta Candy, Steve's secretary who gets most of the laughs.

You can see that last point take literal shape in a new Tumblr post from a 20-year-old woman who works in a kindergarten classroom.

The Twitter account is now promoting a Nat Geo series called Genius, in which former supervillain Geoffrey Rush - that's Casanova Frankenstein from Mystery Men to you and me - stars as Einstein, a key part of the USA nuclear program and one of the most beloved figures in 20th Century American history.

The internet still hasn't simmered down since an Austin theater announced women-only screenings of Wonder Woman, resulting in a barrage of angry outcries from offended men who felt personally victimized by the event.

Going forward, I hope more women like Jenkins get to tell the stories of female characters. I'm thrilled that the movie is having such an impact, and that both girls and boys have the chance to be inspired by a tough, uncompromising, clever and kind-hearted superwoman.

Now that "Wonder Woman" is a hit at the box office, Eisenberg says there's no reason Wonder Woman shouldn't have her own solo animated series for the first time, just like Batman and Superman have had. "She believes she can do everything, and that's a true woman for me".

Behind-the-scenes photos from the making of the movie, which was filmed from 2015 to 2016, show the all-female ensemble training, posing, and even finding a moment to relax on Italy's Amalfi Coast.
