It's no secret that the new "Wonder Woman" film is a smash hit. Directed by Patty Jenkins and starring Gal Gadot, it brought in more than $100 million domestically over the opening weekend. NPR reports this is a record for a female-directed flick. Overall, it's a darn good movie with a strong female lead.
This got us thinking ... what other superhero women portrayed in comics could see a successful reboot on the silver screen? Below, we've rounded up five we feel could kill it at the box office — along with our opinions on who could serve as leading lady.
1. Storm from X-men
Once married to Black Panther, Storm is a princess and a symbol of female empowerment. We'd love to see this force of nature on the silver screen.
Possible leading lady: Lupita Nyong'o
A force to be reckoned with, Zatanna is one of the most powerful magic-using members of the justice league in DC Comics.
Possible leading lady: Jamie Chung
Many people don't know that Batwoman is a military veteran, Jewish, and gay. This story would be an interesting one to tell if done in the right way.
Possible leading lady: Jennifer Connelly
Arguably the most well-known of the female superhero characters, Catwoman was played by Halle Berry in 2004. The movie fell far short of its hype, so a reboot makes sense.
Possible leading lady: Emma Stone
5. Jessica Jones
Private investigator Jessica Jones possesses superhuman strength and flight. Jones's jet-black hair, no-nonsense attitude, and sharp wit make her a compelling character for the silver screen.
Possible leading lady: Laura Prepon
