The DC Extended Universe is certainly headed in the right direction. Wonder Woman proved that no matter what the universe, nor your allegiance to DC or Marvel, both studios had the ability to tell a compelling, heartfelt story. It would seem to imply great things for the studio down the line, but you’d be hard-pressed to convince a real hater otherwise.
In the eyes of some fans, Wonder Woman was a film disconnected to the flaws of Zack Snyder, who was either wholly or partially responsible for shaping the visions of the whole of the DCEU through Justice League. Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad ended up being disappointing, and many are still convinced that Justice League will end up being more in line with those films than Wonder Woman.
Joss Whedon may have come in to shepherd the film during reshoots and post-production, but at the end of the day, it is Snyder’s vision they seem to going forward with. We’ve all been waiting on pins and needles to see how the film will eventually turn out, and it looks like some lucky fans were able to catch an assembly line cut of the film.
Thanks to Twitter user Steele131, we have a couple of tweets where users claim to have seen it, and another tweet from a user whose friend of a friend saw it and thought it was just fine, though not great.

The folks over at Batman-News did a little more digging, speaking to three folks who saw it, and they apparently loved it. Additionally, there is one more person who loved it after not liking Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad, which is worth mentioning since some worried Justice League would be more in line with those films.
Spoke to 3 people who attended the #JusticeLeague test screening. They loved it! "Epic". One person didn't like BvS/SS but loved JL.

Of course, we have to take all this with a grain of salt. While we believe the report that there are people who have seen it, early screenings are notoriously forgiving. At the end of the day, seeing a movie early does have a way of making people more forgiving of movies. Additionally, without having critics and others fans around to help shape their opinion, a lot of viewers also tend to be more forgiving.
Regardless, other than that one “meh” rating, at least it doesn’t sound like a train wreck.
What do you think? Does this sound promising for you, or are you still waiting for when the movie gets released? Let us know your thoughts down below!
