Aquaman director James Wan has heaped praise on Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman, in addition to the chemistry between lead Gal Gadot and Chris Pine's Steve Trevor. Wan took to Twitter, revealing that the Aquaman production team rented out an entire movie theater for the crew to partake in the next chapter of the DCEU, and that he was subsequently wowed by what he saw.
He commended Gadot and Jenkins with the hashtag "#WonderWomen" and called the duo "an inspiration" after viewing the DCEU's first female-fronted movie. He also lauded Pine as "full of charm and charisma" in his role as the World War I spy, who catalyzed Diana's departure from the Amazonian secret island of Themyscira to the war-ridden world of mankind, where she aimed to take out the God of War, Ares, while evolving into the superhero known as Wonder Woman.
The movie has been garnering rapid critical and financial success globally. This has seen talks of a sequel already emerge, while building up to November's Justice League film, which precedes Wan's solo outing revolving around Arthur Curry (played by Jason Momoa) as King of Atlantis.
In theaters nationwide, Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot as Diana, Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Robin Wright as General Antiope, Danny Huston as General Erich Ludendorff, David Thewlis as Ares, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Elena Anaya as Doctor Poison and Lucy Davis as Etta Candy.
Arriving Dec. 21, 2018, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Amber Heard as Mera, Patrick Wilson as Orm/Ocean Master, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Nicole Kidman as Queen Atlanna, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta.
