Wonder Woman Review Roundup: Gal Gadot Wins Over the Critics

Wonder Woman Review Roundup: Gal Gadot Wins Over the Critics

Marvel actress Lupita Nyong'o is sending some heartfelt praise to two women of the DC movie universe.

How would you feel about a Wonder Woman franchise? Both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad were rated rotten by Rotten Tomatoes, but that didn't slow plans for Justice League, which will premiere in theaters on November 17 this year. She grew up sheltered, raised on a protected island by Amazons, and approaches the wider world as a relative innocent despite her ability to fight pretty much anything.

Beauty and the Beast was released in the Philippines on March 16 and later became the country'shighest grossing film of all time, with cumulative gross earnings of P667.46 million at the box office. Roven recently confirmed that it would be hard for movies to exist within the DC cinematic universe in the space between Batman v Superman and Justice League, confirming the latter takes place nearly directly after the former. "I don't care about that at all", said Jenkins, who may first film a smaller movie based on her husband Sam Sheridan's writing and starring Chris Pine, or her long-gestating I Am Superman (no relation to DC Comics) with Ryan Gosling. That's A LOT of time to be filled in when A LOT of wars plagued the Earth. "I felt like Kate Capshaw or something in Indiana Jones".

It is for sure [set in the 100 years prior]. Definitely, it's the plan.

"The [value] I give most primacy to is compassion and empathy", says Rucka describing Wonder Woman.

So what is the truth?

Unseeded Ostapenko faces Halep in French Open final
Fifth seed Svitolina twice served for the match at 5-2 and 5-4 in the second set and then had match point at 6/5 in the tie-break. Pliskova has only ever beaten Halep once in their five career meetings to dat.

Superhero Hype reports that Warner Bros. Maybe Diana regales Bruce Wayne, Barry Allen and others with her tale of what she did about Hitler or something.

Or maybe Wonder Woman 2 is still completely in flux. Maybe both options are still on the table and everyone is right - for now.

Gal Gadot plays Diana, the daughter of Amazon queen Hippolyta, who sculpted her from clay and brought her to life with the help of Zeus; this backstory reminds me of a recurring daydream I used to have in the sweaty, complicated years of my adolescence, in which my neighbor's hot doll would come to life and show me her vagina.

Nothing has been written. And we're really happy about that!

If and when we find a specific answer to this question, we'll let you know.

But if audiences get more gems like "Wonder Woman", it'll all be worth it.
