Already Wonder Woman 1984 is getting mixed reviews, with Variety’s Peter Debruge writing: ‘Jenkins is an enormously talented filmmaker on whom the studio took a chance – one that’s seldom questioned when conferred upon men – and she proves her worth by never letting the spectacle drown out the performances.’

USA Today‘s Brian Truitt saying: ‘[WW 1984] returns Gal Gadot as the Amazon princess with the bulletproof bracelets, introduces a couple worthy foes, and is a pretty fun time even if the extremely busy “1984” almost wears out its welcome at a hefty two and a half hours.’

Thrillist’s Esther Zuckerman wrote: ‘There’s a lot to love in WW84: bold performances from a delightful cast, fantastic costumes, Jenkins’ fast-paced direction. But it’s in service of a plot that loses sight of what makes the character so great in the first place.’

Wonder Woman 1984 comes out December 16th, 2020 internationally and December 25th via HBO Max. The film saw several release delays due to COVID-19 and prior production concerns.
