Wonder Woman early reviews call it one of DC's best movies (correction)

New, 72 comments

It’s overwhelmingly positive

Warner Bros. Studios

The early reviews for DC’s upcoming Wonder Woman are in and those who were worried about how it may be received can relax a little.

The first wave of screenings for the film occurred in both New York and Los Angeles last night and for the most part are overwhelmingly positive. That echoes what exhibitors tweeted about the film a couple of weeks ago. One of the most common compliments the film has received from critics thus far is that, at its core, it’s a genuine, emotional story about family. Gal Gadot and Chris Pine, who play Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor, respectively, also received praise for their portrayal of the characters in the movie.

Wonder Woman, directed by Patty Jenkins, is the fourth installment in the DCEU. It follows Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. Wonder Woman made her debut in Batman v Superman.

Wonder Woman will be released on June 2.

Correction: A previous version of this story referred to Wonder Woman as the first movie in the DC Universe to not be directed by Zack Snyder. David Ayer’s Suicide Squad is actually the first. The story has been changed to reflect this.
