We’ve been saying for months just how important Wonder Woman is for the future of the DC Extended Universe. Many audience members have already been burned by Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad, and while many enjoyed those films for what they were, there is no denying that their reception was polarizing at best. Audiences could only forgive so much, and if Wonder Woman ended up getting received just as poorly as the other two, it could spell doom for the entire franchise.

Some time ago, some journalists had the opportunity to see the film ahead of time, but there was an embargo on their initial impressions. On Thursday, said embargo was lifted, and now we have an idea of whether or not the film is actually good.

Here are some of the first impressions for Wonder Woman!

Based on these initial reactions, I’d say it sounds like DC is on the right track with their latest adaptation. Of course, it’s too early to tell if these reactions will carry over to the rest of critics, and most importantly, to fans. However, given that this is the first female superhero in the modern era of superhero movies, it may get an initial unexpected bump from audiences. Should this reception carry over to those audiences, the word of mouth could help to spread the word and give the film legs for weeks to come.

The synopsis for Wonder Woman is below:

“Before she was Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, Diana meets an American pilot (Chris Pine) who tells her about the massive conflict that’s raging in the outside world. Convinced that she can stop the threat, Diana leaves her home for the first time. Fighting alongside men in a war to end all wars, she finally discovers her full powers and true destiny.”
