Wonder Woman: Critics First Reactions Say It’s The Best DC Film Yet

It’s no secret; DC Entertainment has had trouble wooing critics in the past. After Christopher Nolan’s work with Batman wrapped, the studio found itself floundering to nab love with critics. Films like Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice got lackluster attention – and Suicide Squad was torn to shred by the press. This year, both Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have hoped to change that reputation with its upcoming releases. In less than a month, Wonder Woman will finally hit theaters, and an embargo just lifted for critics.

Now, the Internet is buzzing with first reactions and partial reviews of Wonder Woman. So, DC diehards, you can breathe now. Critics are calling Wonder Woman the best DC film to date.

In the following slides, you can read up on the overwhelming positive reaction to Wonder Woman. Reporters all have their favorite parts, but the reactions all agree on one thing: Wonder Woman is the kind of film which will leave you inspired. Alisha Grauso calls the film “a truly heroic light [the] DCEU desperately needs.” Several have even gone so far as to liken the film’s impact to the kind Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy commanded.

Talk about pressure, huh?

Of course, the cast of Wonder Woman will be happy to hear critics are so far enamored with the film. Earlier today, one of the film’s actresses opened up about her take on the blockbuster. The star, who plays General Antiope, said Wonder Woman was about much more than female empowerment; It is about love and untempered justice.

“Yes, it’s a female superhero, and it’s never been done before. But the generation, the young girls and young boys that are going to be our future, they’re going to flock to the cinema. And the message of this movie is not just female empowerment. It’s about love and justice. That’s what the film’s about. And what a great message to spread to our little ones.”

Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.

Joining Gadot in the international cast are Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, David Thewlis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner and Saïd Taghmaoui. Patty Jenkins directs the film from a screenplay by Allan Heinberg and Geoff Johns, story by Zack Snyder and Allan Heinberg, based on characters from DC Entertainment. Wonder Woman was created by William Moulton Marston.

‘Wonder Woman’ Gal Gadot attacked as ‘Zionist’ on Twitter

 

(JTA) — Israeli actress Gal Gadot, who will star in the upcoming “Wonder Woman” feature film, is being attacked on Twitter for being a “Zionist.”

Gadot, who was a fashion model and actress in Israel, and was Miss Israel 2004 before she broke into films, performed two years of compulsory service in the Israel Defense Forces.

Warner Bros. released its first official trailer for “Wonder Woman” over the weekend, leading to a great deal of social media chatter about the film and the actress.

“I wanted to like gal gadot so bad she seemed so cool and nice until I found out she’s a Zionist,” read one tweet.

“I wish Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) wasn’t a Zionist who supported the occupation of Palestine thru her IDF work, I would enjoy DC more :/,” read another anti-Gadot tweet.

“Gal Gadot stans: SHES NOT A ZIONIST SHE JUST SUPPORTS HER COUNTRY AKA THE MURDER OF INNOCENT PALESTIANS,” read another of dozens of such tweets. A stan is an avid fan in Twitterspeak.

“please dont go around conflating zionism w/ judaism. i cant stand gal gadot bc she’s a zionist & im an israeli jew,” read another tweet.

“This woman isn’t responsible for what Israel does or doesn’t do, she’s just a person, and should be treated thusly,” read a reply.

Gadot has not responded to the tweets.

“Wonder Woman” is scheduled to open in theaters in June 2017. The character was introduced in DC Comics movies several months ago in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”

Gadot is also scheduled to appear in the superhero film “Justice League,” which comes out in November 2017.

Taking place during the World War I era, “Wonder Woman” will introduce the hero’s alter ego, Diana Prince, and her origins on the Amazonian island of Themyscira.
