The Wonder Woman (opens in new tab) social media review embargo has come and gone, and the reactions to the latest DCEU movie seem pretty darn positive. The movie, starring Gal Gadot and Chris Pine and directed by Patty Jenkins, seems to be the perfect antidote to the doom-and-gloom DC movies thus far. Here’s hoping the upwards tick can continue with Justice League (opens in new tab).
Let’s grab the Lasso of Truth and whip up some of the best early reactions and reviews from ‘round the web, from how it compares to the rest of the DCEU movies (spoiler: a lot better) and even some comparing Gal Gadot to Christopher Reeve’s Superman. Wowsers.
Wonder Woman is really good! Some parts don't work but her heroism & compassion in such a bleak war shine thru and make it a win. Best DCEU! pic.twitter.com/ykce3yXmOMMay 19, 2017

Wonder Woman is the DC movie I've been waiting for. It's exciting, inspiring, funny, and has some truly awe-inspiring action scenes.May 19, 2017
There are certainly some issues, like a mismatched 3rd act, but I'll discuss that in a longer review. Overall though, Wonder Woman rules.May 19, 2017
Loved WONDER WOMAN. She reminds me of Christopher Reeve's Superman: true north superhero w/ no angst or cynicism, which is needed right now.May 19, 2017
WONDER WOMAN: Easily my favorite DCEU film. Has the humor and heart the franchise so desperately needs. Gadot and Pine are charming as hell.May 19, 2017
