Is Wonder Woman any good? The first screening reactions are here

DC dropped a bit of a bombshell by screening Wonder Woman for a select few this past weekend in California. Every member of the audience probably had to sign an NDA so, with that in mind, here are a lot of second-hand reactions and a handful of naughty audience-members who have given us a glimpse as to whether the upcoming movie starring Gal Gadot is any good or not.

For the most part, the Wonder Woman reaction seems mostly positive. As always, take these screeners with a massive grain of salt (unless the audience members were wrapped in the Lasso of Truth) but, hey, people don’t lie, right?

Some people, including someone who was reportedly there, have even suggested it’s the best DCEU movie. Talk about damning a movie with faint praise…

Test screenings aren’t the best judge of a movie’s final cut – and some fans are all too wary of that.

Not everything was overwhelmingly positive though. Reactions varied from ‘not as good as the animated movie’ to just plain old ‘decent’ – which sounds similar to the general consensus for most DCEU movies.

Probably the most shocking tidbit of info to come out of the Wonder Woman screenings was that Chris Pine steals the show (and that the story is pretty similar to Captain America: The First Avenger), with one even going as far as saying he outshines Gal Gadot. Say it ain’t so!

Having seen the first reactions, are you still looking forward to seeing Wonder Woman? Sound off in the comments below!
