Wonder Woman, starring Gal Gadot and directed by Patty Jenkins, earned $103 million at the North American box office, the biggest debut for a female director.
The iconic superhero is a DC Comics character, but Marvel stars like Lupita Nyong’o, who’s set to star in the upcoming Black Panther, Chris Evans (Captain America), and Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk) are cheering on the movie’s success.
Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor in the Marvel movies, voiced out what he really thought of the superhero through a tweet in response to Gal.
In a video on Yahoo! News anchor Katie Couric’s Twitter account, Gal asked Chris who he thought would win in a fight – Wonder Woman or Thor?

Gal tweeted back, suggesting a DC-Marvel crossover: "I always knew you were a smart guy. But I think it’s worth a fight. We should collide worlds."
