Most of the Dc Extended Universe's fan base is still disappointed about how "Batman v. Superman" turned out, but a more positive outlook is going to the upcoming films in the franchise. While "Justice League" is already presumed awesome — thanks in part to its trailer and the great casting — it is "Wonder Woman" that is getting all the glowing reviews recently.

'Wonder Woman' DCEU's best film yet?

Most of the Twitterverse already expressed support for the film, with its very strong messages of empowerment. In an article by People Movies, people from all over the world are saying that the movie's opening is a milestone, cited as a positive example for daughters and younger viewers.

Director Patty Jenkins and star Gal Gadot "lassoed the critics" into loving the origin story of this Amazonian warrior princess, as an article by The Hollywood Reporter states. Huge media outlets like IGN, Entertainment Weekly, Uproxx, Indiewire, and Associated Press expressed praise for the film, with most of them saying that it is a cut above the superhero movies that litter the movie industry today.

"'Wonder Woman' is smart, slick, and satisfying in all of the ways superhero films ought to be," writes Chris Nashawaty of Entertainment Weekly. He even went as far as to say that the movie is on par with Christopher Nolan's masterpiece, 'The Dark Knight' trilogy.

Nashawaty also alluded to the irony of how, in the midst of superhero movies being a "boys' playground," it is a woman-centered film that shows superhero filmmakers "how it's done."

THR's own Sheri Linden compared the "lightness" of "Wonder Woman" to the heavy emphasis of "Batman v.

Granted, she also felt that "Wonder Woman" had moments where it had to play with the action-fantasy tropes — perhaps in its own attempt to be a "valid" action-fantasy affair — but overall she thought that it was a slick film with a "relatively uncluttered trajectory."

Gal Gadot: 'weaponized smufette'

The film is not without its detractors, however. Steve Rose of The Guardian said that "the glass ceiling is still intact," referring to how a movie that is as promising as to be a "glass ceiling-breaking blockbuster" failed for him to do the very same. This while he referred to how Gal Gadot was reduced to a "weaponized Smurfette."

Still, it cannot be denied that the reviews are overwhelmingly positive, which spells good news for the DC Extended Universe. The DCEU already suffered a blow when director Zack Snyder stepped down from directing "Justice League" for personal reasons, but "Wonder Woman" seems to be as promising as it is empowering and entertaining.
