Wonder Woman: Embargo Lifted, and Critical Praise is Raining Down!

We thought that critics would be barred from expressing their reactions to Wonder Woman until May 31, but we were most definitely wrong. The social media embargo has already been officially lifted! In contrast to the critics' reactions to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, the positive vibes are flowing.

The first batch of non-spoiler Twitter reactions clearly establishes that Wonder Woman has won the critics' hearts. Many have said that the movie is easily the best DC Extended Universe installment to date, and it includes everything we could have asked for. They're singing the praises of director Patty Jenkins and the entire cast, singling out Gal Gadot and Chris Pine.

Critics speak highly of the action sequences in the June 2, 2017 release, but the critics seem to be most impressed with the movie's humor and heart, qualities they felt were missing in previous DCEU installments. One tweet terms the movie “flawless”, but others admit that it has a few negligible imperfections. Check out some of the critics’ tweets below!

The embargo on full reviews is still in effect, so we'll have to wait a little longer for full reviews. But it could be safe to say that the Rotten Tomatoes score for the Patty Jenkins flick won’t be anywhere near those for the disastrous Zack Snyder and David Ayer DCEU flicks.

It would be interesting to see whether the overwhelmingly positive critical reaction boosts Wonder Woman’s box office tracking figures. The last we heard, tracking had the movie pointed toward a $65 million debut in North America. While that would be a decent start, it's significantly lower than the previous DCEU debuts.
