The First Wonder Woman 1984 Reactions Hit Social Media
The word is out. Wonder Woman 1984 has held virtual junket screenings for a select group of press… including ComingSoon.net! Full reviews remain under embargo for now. However, social media comments remain unrestricted, and the word so far sounds universally positive. Here are a handful of significant Wonder Woman 1984 reactions.
Our own managing editor Max Evry praises the sequel as something fresh and new:
.@WonderWomanFilm is that rare sequel that avoids being a rehash, making huge bold swings. Both @GalGadot’s #WonderWoman and @PattyJenks’ movie never give into cynicism and we love them for it. #WonderWoman1984 takes awhile to get going but once it does it’s fresh & exhilarating! pic.twitter.com/YowjsWq55x

Cinemablend’s Eric Eisenberg is equally enthused:
Huge news: Wonder Woman 1984 is fantastic! The story is excellent & has a great, timely message; it packs in a ton of surprises; and amazing work is done with both Cheetah & Max Lord (Wiig & Pascal are both stellar). Get hyped, because it’s the real deal. #WonderWoman1984 #WW1984 pic.twitter.com/9UQLyxn3gx

And CBR’s Meagan Damore likes the movie’s positive message and emotion:
#WonderWoman1984 was worth the wait. Between the stunning visuals and resonant emotional beats, it’s a piece brimming with charm and confidence. I sincerely hope it’s an experience we can all share together in a theater someday. #WW1984

io9’s Germain Lussier likewise endorses the theme of hope:
Yesterday I saw Wonder Woman 1984 at home & it was everything I needed & more. The movie is hugely ambitious, incredibly exciting, and full of much needed hope. It’s also very long, to a fault at times, but mostly it reminded me how wonderful a big blockbuster can make you feel. pic.twitter.com/6rYbHEzI7E

Finally, multi-publication contributor Jenna Busch could not be more effusive:
Watched Wonder Woman 1984 last night at a virtual press event! It was wonderful! Kristen Wiig is phenomenal as Barbara, the opening 10 minutes will bring tears to your eyes …I absolutely loved it! @pattyjenks and @galgadot knock it out of the park! #WW84 @wonderwomanfilm pic.twitter.com/HVNGmkuorT

So the target audience thus far definitely likes Wonder Woman‘s latest adventure, which probably bodes well for everyone reading this. Expect the less superhero-friendly press to weigh in ten days from now.
