When a movie is 76 years in the making, we hope for some great moments, and in that regard, Wonder Woman does not disappoint. Based upon the iconic DC comic book character created by William Moulton Marston in 1941, this is the first live-action feature film to focus on the Amazonian Warrior, and is the fourth instalment in the DC Extended Universe. It’s also the first live-action comic book movie to be directed by a woman since 2008’s Punisher: War Zone.
Needless to say, anticipation was high as the release date of June 2nd approached, and fans around the world had very clear ideas about what they wanted from Wonder Woman.
