Wonder Woman - "a much-needed hero for our times" !

...vor wenigen Tagen fand in Los Angeles die offizielle Vor-Premiere des nächsten DC Kinofilms (bzw. "DC Cinematic Universe" - Beitrags) statt: Wonder Woman, mit Gal Gadot and Chris Pine in den Hauptrollen.

Wie schon bei  "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" und "Suicide Squad", luden Warner und DC Comic-Schaffende (und andere), die in der Entwicklung der Comic-Vorlage eine wichtige Rolle spielten, zu der Premiere ein.

DC Entertainment veröffentlichte vor kurzem einige Fotos von der Premiere; die Pics zeigen Wonder Woman - Autoren/Innen und Zeichner/Innen aus den vergangenen Jahren:

Das Branchenblatt der US- Entertainment Industrie "The Hollywood Reporter" hat ganz aktuell eine sehr wohlwollende Film - Kritik bzw. - Besprechung von "WONDER WOMAN" veröffentlicht.

"...As the world’s most well-adjusted superhero, Wonder Woman breaks the genre mold. She’s openhearted, not angsty — an anomaly within the DC Universe, “Extended” or otherwise. So too is her long-awaited foray into the live-action big-screen spotlight: That openheartedness makes the movie something of an outlier. Its relative lightness would set it apart even if it didn’t arrive on the heels of the Sturm und Drang of "Batman v. Superman", the 2016 feature that introduced Gal Gadot as the demigoddess who believes it’s her sacred duty to rid the world of war...

...having demonstrated her action chops in the Fast & Furious franchise, Gadot brings a graceful athleticism to the role of a superhuman determined to take down Ares himself. At the same time, she lends a sweetly comic innocence to Diana’s amazed encounters with the civilized world. 

As a man dazzled by a fearless goddess, Pine delivers a less wide-eyed amazement. His performance is effortlessly roguish and wry, but he also ups the emotional ante, grounding the fight against evil as well as the fledgling romance with heart and soul....

...If Diana of Themyscira is a much-needed hero for our times, it’s not because of her special-effects-laden fight moves. It’s because of such offhand moments as the way she infiltrates a bad guy’s soiree. Done up in one of those constricting frocks she doesn’t understand, she nonetheless strides into the room with the focus of a warrior and the gait of a free woman."

...aber auch andere Medien, die den Streifen inzwischen vorab sehen konnten, sind dem Film der Regisseurin Patty Jenkins positiv gewogen!

Auf "Rotten Tomatoes" erhält der Film derzeit 97% !

"Entertainment Weekly" urteilt:
"...Wonder Woman is smart, slick, and satisfying in all of the ways superhero films ought to be. How deliciously ironic that in a genre where the boys seem to have all the fun, a female hero and a female director are the ones to show the fellas how it’s done."

("Wonder Woman") ..."leaps and bounds above the other three entries in the DCEU. ...the film will come as a relief to DC and Warner Bros. and break their "stink streak" after Man of Steel, Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad."  ... "Wonder Woman proves to be an emotionally resonate film that won me over with its refreshing take on the superhero formula that featured something we haven’t seen in the DCEU yet: a true, bona fide hero."

"...genuinely surprising film that plays with genre and throws out the now very tired superhero movie formula."
WONDER WOMAN startet in Deutschland (erst) am 15. Juni!
