While they aren’t able to publish their full reviews just yet, they did get the green light from Warner Bros. tonight to share their initial thoughts about the movie on social media.


Wonder Woman doesn’t hit theaters for another two weeks, and official reviews from the movie aren’t publishing quite yet, but the first critic reactions are in after screenings were held in multiple cities over the last week-plus. For longtime fans, these reactions will be music to their ears as the overwhelming tone of the early opinions is a positive one and you could feel quite a few people jumping for joy through the computer screen at how good the film turned out.

Here’s some of the reactions thus far:

“DC is absolutely on the right track here. Gal Godot is absolutely phenomenal as #WonderWoman. She KILLS it, just surprisingly good. A truly heroic light DCEU desperately needs. Rough parts? Sure.

“Wonder Woman is the DC movie I’ve been waiting for. It’s exciting, inspiring, funny, and has some truly awe-inspiring action scenes. There are certainly some issues, like a mismatched 3rd act, but I’ll discuss that in a longer review. Overall though, Wonder Woman rules.” – Germain Lussier, io9

Despite being around for over 75 years, Wonder Woman didn’t make her silver screen debut until last year. Now, within two years, the character will have been featured in three movies – Batman V Superman, Wonder Woman, and Justice League. If everything goes according to plan, this won’t be the last time Diana Prince leads her own superhero movie. The studio already has plans to make a Wonder Woman sequel, although we don’t know when that will release.
