Gal Gadot returns to the big screen this week as Diana Prince a.k.a. DC Comics’ iconic Amazon Princess in Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman. As the reviews have already been coming out from critics, Wonder Woman has already gotten critical acclaim as we are getting closer to the release this week.
Currently Wonder Woman is sitting on a fresh 96% on Rotten Tomatoes, which is higher than any of the films from the DC Extended Universe, with Man of Steel (55%), Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (28%) and Suicide Squad (25%). But the Amazon Princess is also currently beating all the movies from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, like Iron Man (94%), The Avengers (92%) and Guardians of the Galaxy (91%).
“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.”
