Director Patty Jenkins was originally in talks with Warner Bros. to direct this film back in 2005, but due to her unexpected pregnancy, she had to step down. Jenkins claimed that Wonder Woman (2017) is the film she has been wanting to do her whole life and that she was fortunate to come back to it. See more »

I've been anticipating this movie since I first saw Wonder Woman's awesome appearance in BvS. This movie was slow at times as expected when building an origin story and I don't know that the pace was quite right. The climatic action scenes of the third act weren't as fulling as I hoped. All this is not say that it wasn't an enjoyable film because it was. Credit to the writers who wrote a multi dimensional character for WW who develops during the course of the film. And credit to Gal who played it perfectly as a young woman with a bit of nativity at first but who then slowly discovers her power, her purpose, and herself along the way. Gal's performance is both adorable and bad ass and I couldn't take my eyes off of her for a second. The action scenes were well done. The back drops and sets are wonderful. And Chris Pine also does a wonderful job as the downed pilot/spy who must keeps his promise to take Gal to the front lines. And maybe fall in love along the way. One of my favorites of the genre and I am looking forward to WW2.
