Despite the controversy that has surrounded "Wonder Woman," the latest venture from Warner Bros and D.C. Comics has managed to survive all odds and the Amazonian princess continues to conquer her foes with stellar box office numbers. As the summer box office begins to heat up, more blockbusters will begin to surface.

At this time, it's safe to say that "Wonder Woman" is doing very for itself. However, as the film made its debut June 2, the box office triumph doesn't come at such a shock when "Baywatch" and "Captain Underpants" stood as the film's only real competition.

"Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" also unsurprisingly sunk at the box office as moviegoers who were fans of the franchise may have grown tired of it as it has entered its fifth installment. Yet, Vanity Fair notes that while American moviegoers have moved on, "the global figures are stunning" as international audiences helped to bring the film $208 million worldwide during its debut.

"Pirates" opened Memorial Day weekend to lukewarm reviews, but it still beat out "Baywatch." "Baywatch," which made its box office debut around Memorial Day weekend to mostly poor reviews, also sputtered with moviegoers. It debuted in third place in its opening weekend, with an underwhelming $23 million.

Meanwhile, another installment of "The Mummy" debuted June 9 and received poor reviews from critics. During its debut weekend, "Wonder Woman" buried "The Mummy" and marked a capital 'W' on top of its tomb with the lasso of truth as the Tom Cruise-led reboot managed a lackluster $30 million this weekend with U.S. audiences.

While "Wonder Wonder" may have been able to conquer theaters, that could potentially change as the summer season progresses.

"This is a summer movie season that has already had many casualties and will have many more," said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for comScore, according to Variety. "Now the pressure is on for the rest of the summer to deliver."

This summer alone, major superhero blockbusters and Oscar-bait films consume this season's lineup. Yet, it's the blockbuster flicks that will need to quickly meet the standards "Wonder Woman" set.

"Spider-Man: Homecoming" opens in theaters on July 7. As it hits theaters, it will instantly be pitted against "Wonder Woman" since it's being produced by its comic rival, Marvel. Not only has the marketing for the web slinger's reboot been more extensive than its counterpart, the film also includes Robert Downey Jr. as he reprises his role of Tony Stark and Iron Man.

In previous years, the Spider-Man franchise under Sony's wing made around $800 million domestically per film. Under Disney's wing, it could potentially perform just as well, if not better than some of its predecessors within the franchise. Since audiences have a familiarity with "Spider-Man" in the cinematic setting, this could help to potentially push it above "Wonder Woman."

"Planet of the Apes" is also set to make a return to the summer box office season this summer. While the film has performed exceptionally well at the box office, its numbers don't stack up to the worldwide revenues of either the "Spider-Man" franchise or "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise.

The last of the returning franchises includes "Transformers," "Cars" and "Despicable Me."

While not a critically praised series as of late, "Transformers" still brings in the numbers domestically and overseas, which matters most in many cases. Yet, it will most likely end up bowing down to the Amazonian warrior this summer. As for "Despicable Me 3," it's in a completely different market. Like in previous years, it will succeed with its target demographic, but the buzz around the third installment feels stale. The "Cars" franchise has reached its expiration date of relevancy, so it has no shot at even competing to beat the box office numbers that "Wonder Woman" produces or "Despicable Me 3."

There are a number of movies debuting this summer that possess a blockbuster factor to them, ultimately making them contenders for successful runs this season. "Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets," "The Emoji Movie," "Dark Tower," "Logan Lucky," "Baby Driver" and "The Hitman's Bodyguard" are among the pack.

Most of these titles seem promising on the surface, but there is still a hint of uncertainty with how they will perform with critics and at the box office.

While Charlize Theron's July thriller "Atomic Blonde" showcases a female hero like "Wonder Woman," audiences will receive a gutsier and edgier heroine. "Atomic Blonde" will play hard at the box office and will most likely generate a respectable amount of money along the way, but Wonder Woman is an iconic character that has been placed on a pedestal worldwide. Theron's character in "Atomic Blonde" is based on a graphic novel, but this fictional character can't hold a candle to the woman who holds the lasso of truth.

"Wonder Woman" has exceeded box office expectations. Currently, the film — which has garnered excellent reviews — has made over $300 million worldwide to date.

Of this summer's movie lineup and the uncertain box office that follows, "Wonder Woman" will mostly likely keep its title for top box office earner this summer. However, films like "Spider-Man: Homecoming," "Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets," and "War for the Planet of the Apes" could potentially sneak up and steal its thunder.
