The first reactions to Wonder Woman, the DCEU’s first female-led installment starring Gal Gadot have hit the web now that the social media embargo has lifted.
Wonder Woman is an incredibly important for both Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment that will determine both the future of female-led blockbusters and female directors in Hollywood and judging from the reactions it sounds like we could have plenty of female-led action films to inspire young women for years to come as the film is being regarded as “the best DC film to date”.

Loved WONDER WOMAN. She reminds me of Christopher Reeve’s Superman: true north superhero w/ no angst or cynicism, which is needed right now.

The embargo has officially lifted, so here it goes: WONDER WOMAN is, against all odds, pretty damn wondrous.

WONDER WOMAN: Easily my favorite DCEU film. Has the humor and heart the franchise so desperately needs. Gadot and Pine are charming as hell.

Here’s the official synopsis:
’Wonder Woman’ hits movie theaters around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins. 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.
Wonder Woman hits theaters June 2, 2017.
7 Wonder Woman Villains Perfect For Future Sequels
Now that we’re about a month away from Wonder Woman’s solo movie, it’s time to start fantasizing about what we’ll see in those sequels Warner Bros. is inevitably planning. Wonder Woman has a rich rogues gallery that has transformed and grown alongside her as she’s become one of the world’s most iconic heroes.
It looks like Ares, the Greek god of war, will be the main villain for Wonder Woman’s first outing, but DC is gonna need to shake things up for future projects. Diana Prince has already proved herself a terrific warrior in Batman V Superman when she took on Doomsday, so I’m excited to see who the creators want to throw at her next. She doesn’t need a full team beside her, Wonder Woman is warrior enough to defend the innocent from all types of threats.
