    Same with me, as long as they don't make it too unreal. The sequel is supposed to be out in December 2019, with Gal Gadot reprising her role as WW and Jenkins has in fact been signed to direct it, which I think is good. I think Gadot is also in a movie coming out later this year called Justice League or something like that, as WW.

    This movie was a serious disappointment.

    Luckily for me, I didn't buy into the hype before seeing it, so I wasn't too disappointed. I just wasn't extremely impressed, either. :)

    Your criticisms are well founded. No problem with that. However, what Wonder Woman does is cross over to mythology genre, similar to what Thor does, which is all fantasy. Mythology is steeped in the "magic" of the gods. WW obviously has supernatural powers. In such a literary environment, anything is possible. Hercules may even make an appearance down the road. It's a magical world. So long as I find such movies entertaining, I'll support the kid in me..

    I actually enjoy the mythology aspects. As I said, I don't think Wonder Woman was a bad movie, I just look at some of the glowing reviews and talk of it "saving" the DC movie universe, and I wonder if those are honest opinions on the movie, or based more on finally having a good female-lead comic book movie, with a female director. WW being successful is a feel good story, and I think many people kind of ran with that, ignoring the negatives of the movie.

    I don't regret having seen WW, and I will watch the sequel whenever it comes out (although I don't know that I'll go to the theater for it). I just hope the sequel is a bit better written. :)
