‘Wonder Woman’ Early Reactions Compare Film To ‘The First Avenger’
The theatrical release of the highly anticipated Warner Bros. film Wonder Woman is less than a month away. The Patty Jenkins directed superhero film will be the next project to expand the roster of DCEU for the better. There hasn’t been a female led superhero property on the big screen since films like Catwoman and Elektra failed to live up to the hype. It’s also safe to say that Warner Bros. and the DCEU have high hopes for the live action debut of our favorite Amazonian princess, hoping to balance out the mixed reception of DC Comics films like Man Of Steel, Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice, and Suicide Squad. Thankfully, early reactions to the film are extremely positive and have even compared the film to the MCU film Captain American: The First Avenger.
John Shaw, the President of Theatre Management Associates, went on twitter to praise the film. Check out the tweet below:
Wonder Woman: exciting & entertaining in every way. Great SFX and characters. Here's a summer blockbuster as good as Captain America ($370M)

Captain American: The First Avenger debuted back in 2011. It was well received amongst audiences and critics and went on to make $370 million in its worldwide gross. Based on his tweet, Shaw seems to think that Wonder Woman will have the same box office success.
What summer film has a lot riding on its success? Wonder Woman. WB and DC comics count on major success. Thus far, projections are strong.

As stated earlier, Warner Bros. has a lot riding on the release of Wonder Woman. They can’t afford to have another subpar superhero film with the highly anticipated Justice League film only six months from its debut right after WW. The success of the cinematic franchise they are hoping to build is riding on it.
Wonder Woman tells the story of Diana, princess of the Amazons. When a pilot crashes and tells of the conflict in the outside world, she leaves home to fight a war to end all wars, discovering her full powers and her true destiny. The film stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Connie Nielsen, Ewen Brenner, David Thewlis and many more.
Wonder Woman whips into theaters on June 2nd.
