‘Wonder Woman’ Currently Beats All The DCEU & MCU Films On Rotten Tomatoes

Wonder WomanGal 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.”

In case you missed it: make sure to check out what we learned from our big edit bay visit early this year with the director of the film, Patty Jenkins, but be aware of spoilers in some of our pieces – you have officially been warned!

Directed by Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman also stars Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Lucy Davis as Etta Candy, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Robin Wright as General Antiope, Lisa Loven Kongsli as Menalippe, Danny Huston as General Erich Ludendorff, David Thewlis as Sir Patrick Morgan, Elena Anaya as Doctor Maru, Ewen Bremner as Charlie, Saïd Taghmaoui as Sameer and Eugene Brave Rock as the Chief. The screenplay was written by Jenkins, Allan Heinberg and DC Films’ co-head Geoff Johns, with story by Heinberg and Justice League director Zack Snyder.

Wonder Woman opens in theaters on Friday, June 2.

    ok let’s wait for few more reviews, no way it’s going to score higher the dark knight

    • gooched

      Something scoring higher than something doesnt necessarily mean people who liked it, liked it better, it just means more people liked it. It’s the average rating you should look at.

      • Jordan A

        Good point. Currently the average rating is at a 7.7/10, which is similar to the first Guradians’ 7.8, a bit lower than the first Avengers’ 8/10.

        Not to say those two movies are automatically better. A movie’s quality, or how much you will like it, isn’t solely determined by its review scores. I’m glad that the new Wonder Woman movie appears to be of the same caliber and quality of the Marvel films we’ve been getting for nearly a decade. However, I don’t really like the wording of this article (esp. the title) which could be essentially translated as “Hey, this Wonder Woman movie is better than all the Marvel movies, so suck it.”

        It’s a click-bait title that’s only here to attract traffic via stoking a fanwar.

        • gooched

          It’s not saying that at all. It’s clearly stating what was a fact at the time. A lot of people I know feel it’s better than 95% of what marvel have put out for that decade. But yeah back to my point its the average rating you look at to measure it’s “worth” but the overall critical reception that’s the big number, that’s what makes or breaks movies now at the box office.

    Thank God it looks like WB/DC finally got a movie right since the Nolan Dark Knight series. I love most of the DC main characters, but Snyder, Goyer, and Terio did an awful job with them thus far. Maybe Patty Jenkins should take over control of the DCCU.

    • gooched

      Doesn’t work that way, it’s not just one or two guys given free reign to do these films as they want, you’ve got tons of execs who are going over the direction of the series. Credit goes massively to Patty of course, but it kind of shows that the “guys in the back” are starting to understand what works and what doesn’t and seeing the reaction to this film, they will hopefully learn what they need to make these films good.

    No wonder (pun intended)… They finally got that these movies are supposed to be inspirational.
