The Marvel Heroes Omega PC servers are now back online with game update 2.14! Thank you for your patience.

Wonder Woman was amazing, and it's the first superhero movie to recapture the feeling I had from seeing Michelle Pfeifer as Catwoman, or the last scene of X2, or Spider-Man on opening night a few months after 9/11. It turns out that a lot of people reacted the same way to the scene in No Man's Land. Come to find out, the director had to fight for that scene, storyboard it herself, and insist that it not be cut. In the interview about it, she describes a room full of people who just can't seem to understand why it's important or even makes sense. After seeing the movie, it's hard to believe.

      She's better than Taylor Swift and Katy Perry. And Lana Del Rancho.
    • rbmaia

      Both Katy and Snake are more talented, successful and popular that JLow's ever been. Her only highlights in the last 10 years were falling on her Trash Panda! on AMA, parasitizing Pitbull until she managed to wreck his career, and acting foolish during Mariahs performance.

      Lana sings live and is a songwriter. Paul McCartney said she's the most talented songwriter of her generation. John Lennons son is on her new record. Where's JLo's impact? She started as Motollas lap Trash Panda! .

      JLo should stop blowing Hollywood directors and apply for Drag Race. She already pads her Trash Panda! Trash Panda! and lip syncs for a living. The only thing she would need to excel in the show is a personality.

      Worth theatre price for someone who's not a DC fan and doesn't care about the character? For comparison, I hated Cap in the comics for the longest time, 1st Avenger however is now one of my favorite MCU movies because they took a char I didn't like and made it awesome. While I don't hate WW, she's just completely off my radar since I don't read DC.

      Can't wait until it's released here. I've been excited for the movie since the first trailer, I'm so glad the movie is great.

      This felt like a better Capt America movie but with mythical origins ofc.

      I second Maggot, except that I actually despise Wonder Woman, and I did read some of her comics. But I also disliked Cap, and First Avenger + Winter Soldier turned him into one of my favorite MCU characters, so I was hoping that Diana would receive a similar treatment. Maybe this weekend!

      This movie was amazing. I literally just came back from seeing it. Probably my favorite super hero movie. It had the right mix of... well... everything. So glad the No Man's Land scene wasn't cut - the movie needed it, and would have been poorer without it.

      So DC is what...1 for 3? I have hopes. They aren't high, but at least I have them.
    • DreadMAGUS

      The movie really puts them in a bad place. On the one hand it shows they CAN make an awesome movie, on the other hand it really sets the bar high for them. Anything that comes out now will be measured against WW.

      Maggs, I would definitely suggest seeing it. Even if you don't know/like the character it's one of the few rare superhero movies that's as inspiring as the best comics. And the fight choreo/direction are ON POINT.
    • Ryven

      I would also say that Wonder Woman is not just a good movie by DC's recent gutter standards. I feel pretty comfortable saying that it's in Tier 1 of superhero movies alongside The Dark Knight, Spider-man, Iron Man, Winter Soldier, and X2 (though X2 is not aging well). I would put Avengers, Civil War, and Dark Knight Rises at the very top of Tier 2.

      That tier is distinct from influential landmark films that may be more important but still not as good, like Superman, Batman, and X-Men.

      Maggs do like I do with all movies I have very little interest in watch it eventually at home on tv

      Ry shut your mouth Reeves Superman was fawking great. And it also depends on viewpoint. I think the Nolan Batmans are highly overrated

      The fact that the bar is being set high or them now is a good thing. It gives them reason to be more picky with their choices of not just talent, but writers, directors, etc. It really shows that with right people in front and behind the camera along with a good script can make a Wonder Woman movie work.

      Here a question for thought, who would've ever thought they would enjoy a Wonder Woman movie during the Batman v Superman premiere.

      Hopefully they'll rise to the challenge. Great DCCU(?) movies will only be a healthy thing for the genre as a whole.

      Here's an interesting blurb from a pretty knowledgeable awards-race writer betting on a best actress Oscar nomination for Gal Gadot. I don't think that will happen because the Academy prefers actresses that ugly-cry in movies with a $3m budget.

      It's still pretty remarkable to see this kind of commentary from such an experienced race-watcher, though. She also name-drops Logan, and I've seen several early lists predicting a supporting actor nomination for Patrick Stewart. Cool stuff!
