Rian Johnson On Why He Thinks ‘Wonder Woman’ Was A Success

Star Wars: The Last Jedi JohnsonRian Johnson is known for interacting with fans on Twitter and the other day was giving his opinion on franchises after quoting an article about Blade Runner 2049. In the process of laying out his opinion, Wonder Woman was brought up and Johnson explained why he felt the film worked.

Johnson believes that creating compelling stories and characters is what leads universes to be successful. The quote that he tweeted also mentioned not starting out with a universe first and cramming it with shoehorned properties. That the films need to grow organically. This led to his bringing up of Wonder Woman.

Check out the tweet below:

It is not only cool that Johnson interacts with fans on Twitter, but also that he shares an affinity for other comic book films and franchises outside of those set in a galaxy far, far away. He also makes a great point, in that Wonder Woman was so universally accepted and successful because people felt a connection with the story. Perhaps someday we might see him jump to another cinematic universe to helm an installment.

Rian Johnson’s next film, Star Wars: The Last Jedi stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Anthony Daniels, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Benicio del Toro, Laura Dern, Kelly Marie Tran, Lupita Nyong’o, and Andy Serkis.

Thor: RagnarokGuardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is out on home media and Spider-Man: Homecoming has been playing in theaters for a while now, so it’s time to look forward to the next Marvel movies, the first being Thor: Ragnarok.

The trailer for the film is incredible. The vibe, the action, the set-design, the soundtrack, every element of the trailer screams, “This is a different kind of Thor movie.”

And that’s exactly what we need. Thor: The Dark World was the most easily forgettable Marvel sequel, only distinguishable from the original for its use of fan-favorite villain Loki. Thor: Ragnarok looks poised to switch up the formula, seeming more like a fun intergalactic romp than a brooding space epic.

Judging from the trailer and other positive buzz, there’s plenty of cause to be excited for Thor: Ragnarok. Here are the 5 reasons why. Click next to get started!
