The new ‘Wonder Woman’ movie has been screened to a handful of folk in the US, and while it seems those folk may be sworn to secrecy in terms of social media, it appears that their mates are under no such obligation.
The screening happened on Sunday, with producer Zack Snyder and director Patty Jenkins in attendance.
And now buzz is starting to leak out slowly, and it doesn’t sound half bad thus far, despite early rumours that suggested the movie is ‘a mess’.
Not so, says this Twitter user:
Like what I am hearing about last night's screening for #WonderWoman.

This means NOTHING but spoke to someone who saw Wonder Woman and said they were blown away by the movie and it is the best movie of the DCEU

However, it’s not all rave reviews… others were a shade less impressed
I wasn't at Wonder Woman's test screening but I heard from people who were. Told me it was good, but not as good as the animated movie.

"Chris Pine stole every scene, even the ones with #WonderWoman."
I actually find this kinda plausible. Gal is just an ok actress.????????????

Hearing from a test screening that Chris Pine is the best thing about WonderWoman, that's great I guess if he was Wonder Woman????

Take from that lot what you will.
In addition to the early chatter around the movie, it’s thought that ‘Harry Potter’ star David Thewlis – yes, Remus Lupin himself – has been cast as the movie’s villain Ares, who’s portrayed in the movie using practical effects and CGI.
Starring Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, alongside Chris Pine, Lucy Davis, Connie Nielsen and Robin Wright, the movie hits screens in the UK on June 2.
