[USA], August 31 (ANI): Patty Jenkins` debut superheroine movie 'Wonder Woman' got praises from around the world, but there was one person whose reaction for the movie was priceless - Hillary Clinton.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Jenkins thought that praise from Hillary was absolutely "surreal".

In an interview with Cosmopolitan magazine, she explained, "It's completely surreal! Those sorts of crossovers to the real world are surreal because there's like two versions of me. There's the me that's like, 'Wow! [Wonder Woman] is this [kind of icon] to so many people, so I'm not surprised.' On the other hand, I'm like, So our film? Those things we did, those people have watched? Oh, my god!"

The 'Monster' helmer also noted that she feels honoured that her movie is being praised from a person like Hillary Clinton.

Jenkins recently defended her film after comments by 'Avatar' director James Cameron, who said in another interview that 'Wonder Woman' was not as revolutionary to the film industry as the hype suggested.

It should be noted that 'Wonder Woman' sequel has already been given the green light.

The movie is expected to hit theaters in late 2019, with Jenkins reportedly in negotiations to direct. (ANI)
