Although I’m a staunch defender of the DC Extended Universe movies thus far, I’m in a small minority. However, after the first trailer debuted at Comic Con, and now after this new trailer dropped today, I don’t see anyone with a bad opinion about the upcoming Wonder Woman movie.
It strikes me with a similar vibe as Captain America: The First Avenger, which was awesome in its own right, but this seems to have something extra going on, and I can’t quite pinpoint what it is. In any case, they seem to have gotten Wonder Woman herself exactly right, and the tone definitely feels like more of an uplifting adventure than a dour, existential “murderverse” (as some have called the DC movies up until now).
If anyone can save DC and Warner Bros. from themselves and right the ship while simultaneously winning back the hearts and minds of audiences, it’s the Warrior Princess of the Amazons.
Wonder Woman comes out on June 2nd, 2017.
