It’s finally here. The moment we have all been waiting for. The DC heroes are banning together for the first time in the DCEU. Since seeing The Avengers from the MCU, the anticipation on how DC was going to handle their band of heroes was on every geeks mind. I’d have to say that now the movie is out, I am happy that I was able to witness this movie during the superhero craze at the movies but unfortunately, this movie didn’t live up to the hype and expectation I had. Combined with reviews and comments from early viewers, the high action and very revealing trailers removed most of the surprise and WOW factor the movie could have presented. Sadly, I wanted more and wish this movie came further down the timeline.

Our heroes which include returning Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), with newcomers Cyborg (Ray Fisher), The Flash (Ezra Miller), and last but not least Aquaman (Jason Momoa) All from different parts of the world, they are intertwined with a long-time battle with Steppenwolf, the Destroyer of Worlds, awaken to carry out a mission to combine 3 artifacts to open a portal to his own version of hell onto earth. This big bad is joined by infected winged creatures who aid in his crusade. Batman searches for these heroes to join him in this fight as well as possibly start a team that could be there whenever the world is in need in the future.

Review: Wonder Woman Is An Example That The DCEU Is Headed In The Right Direction

Since its announcement of Gal Gadot’s (Fast And Furious Series) involvement to play Wonder Woman, the movie has been looked at as the movie not to hold your breath for. With its predecessors not getting great praise leading the Cinematic Universe DC Comics is creating, there just wasn’t much hope that a female superhero lead played by an unknown that “didn’t look the part” would not succeed and of course like every other doubt in casting it turns out it ended up being the right one.

Wonder Woman is breaking records, creating history, and telling all those naysayers that behind every good man is a woman. Female director Patty Jenkins, whose involvement includes directing 2003’s Monster starring Charlize Theron and also directing episodes of The Killing and Entourage on the small screen, brings Wonder Woman to the big screen showing so far the glue keeping this movie series alive.
