Wonder Woman was carrying a lot of hopes and wishes of DC fans after a series of setbacks at the box-office, but they have a reason to cheer now as the movie has delivered big for DCEU. Directed by Patty Jenkins, the first woman to direct a DC film with a screenplay written by Allan Heinberg, story by Heinberg, Snyder, and Fuchs. It explores the origins of Wonder Woman, from being Diana on the island of Themyscira to saving American pilot Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) who crashed his plane offshore, ultimately leading her to end World War I. The film has not just smashed box-office records (already crossed over $200 million globally) but also glass ceiling for women. The film also has Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Elena Anaya as supporting cast.
But the news came from the Marvel camp as the movie received massive reception from the biggest Marvel stars gushing all over, showering praise on the movie left and right. Here’s a collection of tweets by famous Marvel actors:
