Early Wonder Woman Movie Reactions Are Everything We Could’ve Dreamed Of

Some good news! SOME GOOD NEWS!

We already thought Wonder Woman couldn’t get here fast enough, but now there’s even more reason to feel that way. Whether you’ve been underwhelmed with the DCEU movies so far or enjoyed them, the buzz so far is that we’re all in for the best of the bunch when Wonder Woman finally makes her solo movie debut.

Instead of the usual post-6PM news sh**show we’ve become so used to on the Internet over the past few weeks, last night wound up incredibly upbeat and hopeful. We were treated to glowing impressions from critics who have been lucky enough to see the movie already, even though full reviews are still under embargo from the time being. For those of you who’d rather avoid spoilers anyway, though, these early takes should be enough to tide you over until June 2.

Here’s a sampling of what was being said:

There’s plenty more where that came from, and we could not be happier to hear it—not only that it’s awesome and Wonder Woman kicks ass, but that there’s solid cast chemistry and heart for an overall great movie. We take a lot of flack around here for being “pro-Marvel” and “anti-DC,” at least when it comes to the movies, but everyone who’s ever said that has no idea how much we’ve all wanted to love the DCEU movies. I can’t speak for everyone on staff, but so far, I just … haven’t. I don’t hate them. I don’t want them to do poorly—quite the opposite.

In fact, I’d love nothing more than for one of them to really grab me and maybe start to turn my opinion around, and I’m thrilled at the idea that Wonder Woman may be the one to do it. Director Patty Jenkins and star Gal Gadot are pretty happy about the impressions so far, too:
