Wonder Woman Was Never Meant To Turn DC's Cinematic Fortunes Around - But It Hasby

Critical reception for the recent movie adaptation of DC’s Wonder Woman has been overall rather positive – after all, it had a fairly grim act to follow, with both of last year’s Batman V Superman and Suicide Squad having fared poorly with critics and viewers despite having pulled in considerable box office money. DC Comics are well-known for being a little darker than their Marvel counterparts – however, getting the balance right for the big screen has proven to be a little difficult. Major changes have been made along the way, and with initial Justice League director Zack Snyder having retired from the production due to a family tragedy, it seems that the way forward for DC is a little less straightforward than they may have envisaged. Lucky for the brand, therefore, that Wonder Woman appears to have struck a chord – offering an empowering, exciting and occasionally humorous take on the comic book movie that is the first to be fronted by a woman since the disastrous Catwoman over a decade ago.

However, Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins asserts that her choices in filmmaking were not dictated by necessity to fix the problems that the DC universe was facing, according to ScreenRant. Jenkins advises that she had devised an origin story for the character inspired by Christopher Reeve’s take on Superman – and that she had been building her opening story for Wonder Woman on the big screen over a decade ago, far removed from the inner workings of the DC universe. Jenkins is proud that the spirit and intentions she held for the character have remained steadfast and have been carried through to the final product, which both Warner Bros and DC are said to have been very supportive with from the get-go.

Wonder Woman has sailed into the top of the box office charts in numerous territories and is being hailed as a breakthrough for the DC universe – particularly as it appears to have garnered general praise from critics in comparison with the drubbing that both BvS and Suicide Squad received last summer. A colossal 92% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes – at the time of writing – shouldn’t be sniffed at. With Justice League and Jason Momoa’s take on Aquaman set to head to the big screen next, what could the next few DC instalments learn from Wonder Woman’s success? We’ll have to wait and see.
