The first reviews for "Wonder Woman" are out of this world, with critics declaring it the best DC comic book movie yet. They're also comparing Gal Gadot's Amazon warrior to Christopher Reeve's iconic Superman.
Of course, being better than the critically reviled "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" and "Suicide Squad" is pretty damn easy. But rapturous reviews that name-check "The Dark Knight" and "Captain America: First Avenger"? That just might make Ben Affleck sad.
Here's some of the initial reactions from Twitter:
Very pleased to report that #WonderWoman is the best DC movie since THE DARK KNIGHT. I'm already looking forward to seeing it again.

"The 'Wonder Woman' Embargo Has Lifted Twitter" is my favorite Twitter. Also: #WonderWoman is really damn good. Loved every minute.

Loved WONDER WOMAN. She reminds me of Christopher Reeve's Superman: true north superhero w/ no angst or cynicism, which is needed right now.

#WonderWoman is the easily the best DCEU movie so far. It's got heart and a love of heroes. Pine and Gadot are charming beyond measure.
