In awesome, albeit not terribly shocking news, one of the most exciting feature films of the year also happens to be the most tweeted about feature film of the year. According to Twitter, Wonder Woman is now the most tweeted about movie of 2017 in the U.S., with over 2.19 million tweets (and counting). The Patty Jenkins-directed flick broke the Twitter records previously held by La La Land and Beauty and the Beast. And it’s only been in theaters for a week. Wonder Woman more or less picked up a bow and a quiver of tweets, jumped off of a shield, and landed smack-dab in the middle of the Twitterverse. The box office smash is an unstoppable tweet-force of tweet-nature, y'all.
Here's an interesting piece of tweet-data: Wonder Woman/Diana Prince is the movie’s most tweeted about character (duh), Batman comes in second, and Steve Trevor is third. In the spirit of the Lasso of Truth, I'm just going to come right out and say it: Steve Trevor should be number two. No offense whatsoever meant to Bruce Wayne; I’m a big fan of his work, and I really appreciate the great lengths he took to ensure that photograph reached Diana unharmed. However, this was not Batman's movie. I mean, it wasn’t Steve Trevor’s movie, either (the title tells no lies), but it was more Steve Trevor’s than the Caped Crusader’s. Don’t @ me.
Speaking of @-replies, here are just a few of the 2.19 million tweets about Wonder Woman.
Diana is the Princess of Themyscira and of Twitter.
Only a jabroni would disagree with the Rock.

Wonder Woman is breaking box office records!!! Bravo,Patty Jenkins! Bravo, Gal Gadot!— Lynda Carter (@RealLyndaCarter) June 5, 2017
Bravo, Chris Pine!
And the other Wonder Woman gets it, too.
Keep on crushing those records, Wonder Woman. Is there a record for "movie that inspired the most people to google horseback riding/martial arts hybrid classes"? Because if so, I assume Wonder Woman would crush that record as well.
