There’s a lot riding on Wonder Woman.  After BvS and Suicide Squad, the DC Extended Universe needs a hit – and needs it badly.

The first screenings have taken place in the States and, while full reviews are still firmly under embargo, a lucky few were given permission to post comments on social media.  And we can all breathe at least a small sigh of relief, as those all-important first reactions are positive.

“The best DCEU movie so far” was a recurring theme, with the Gal Gadot/Chris Pine double act coming in for plenty of praise.  For Gadot, it confirms her ownership of the title role since her scene-stealing arrival in BvS.  Even the film’s director, Patty Jenkins, took to Twitter to express her gratitude for the favourable response.  “So touched I can’t take it.  Thank you for believing in us!” she Tweeted.

Wonder Woman is set decades before the events of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, with Diana Prince (Gadot) leaving behind her fellow Amazons and the paradise of Themyscira to save humanity from “the war to end all wars”.  She heads for London in the middle of World War I where she helps Steve Trevor (Pine) to fight warmonger General Erich Ludendorff (Danny Huston) and Doctor Maru, aka Doctor Poison (Elena Anaya).  The film also stars Robin Wright, Connie Nielson, Ewen Bremner and Lucy Davis.

Wonder Woman lands in the UK on 1st June.

A lifelong lover of films, I'm at last living the proverbial dream - as a film critic and radio presenter. My blog and podcast, both called Talking Pictures, are award nominated, although I've yet to actually win anything. And I'm heard rabbiting away about movies to my heart's content every Friday morning on BBC Surrey and Sussex. Favourite film? The Third Man. Career highlight to date? Interviewing Woody Harrelson in his trailer at Pinewood!
