Warner Bros. had financial success with "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" and "Suicide Squad," but both were not universally loved by critics. According to WB Chief Executive Kevin Tsujihara, "Wonder Woman" will be the film that changes the negative perception of the DC Extended Universe.
Tsujihara spoke to The New York Times about his company's successes, while directly addressing the poor reactions to the DCEU films: "Quietly, we’ve been having an amazing year, the narrative, over all, has not reflected that... The thing that really makes me confident is that I’ve seen ‘Wonder Woman,’ and it’s great."
It's not uncommon to hear excitement coming from someone involved with an upcoming movie, but it's possible "Wonder Woman" can sway public opinion in her favor. Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman was the breakout character from "Dawn of Justice," and reactions to the first two "Wonder Woman" trailers have been positive. Plus, the promotions of comic book writer Geoff Johns and Jon Berg as the heads of the DCEU is another sign that changes are coming.We'll have to wait and see if "Wonder Woman" is the film that changes the public opinion for Warner Bros.
Written by Allan Heinberg and Geoff Johns from a story by Heinberg and Zack Snyder, “Wonder Woman” also stars Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, Lucy Davis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Saïd Taghmaoui, Ewen Bremner, Lisa Loven Kongsli and David Thewlis. The film opens June 2, 2017.
