"Now, I haven't seen Wonder Woman yet, but I'm going to, in part because it's directed by the fabulous Patty Jenkins," Clinton said. "But something tells me that a movie about a strong powerful woman fighting to save the world from a massive international disaster is right up my alley."
The crowd laughed and cheered in agreement, and Jenkins took to Twitter to thank Clinton for the shout-out:
