Original article:

Wonder Woman is currently crushing it at Rotten Tomatoes with a 97% favorable "Fresh" score amongst critics!

Presently, 63 reviews are in with the Patty Jenkins-directed movie only having 2 negative scores! That means 61 positive!

If the number holds up or even drops by 10-20 points, what a turn that is for the DCEU!

Man of Steel sits at 55%, Batman v. Superman at a mere 28%, and Suicide Squad has a paltry 25%!

For a comparison, the highest rated Marvel movie is the first Iron Man movie at 94% and then The Avengers at 92%.

We can now further speculate that Wonder Woman will have a higher than anticipated opening, as some estimates were in the low range of $55 million.  It's possible Wonder Woman could go on to open to $100 million-plus and possibly even score upwards of a $750 million box office draw, which would be pretty incredible for the movie.  

I pegged Wonder Woman's box office along the lines of Captain America or Thor, with $500 million or so.  I believe Wonder Woman is the first DCEU movie with Geoff Johns fully involved, so it looks to be paying off. Hopefully the trend continues with Justice League and Aquaman.

Good news!

"Wonder Woman" has a June 2, 2017 release directed by Patty Jenkins starring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Connie Nielsen, David Thewlis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner, and Saïd Taghmaoui .  

Synopsis:

Wonder Woman hits movie theaters around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
