"Dark and funny"?!

After waiting for decades to see Wonder Woman on the big screen, fans could have been forgiven for feeling a little dismal after it was repeatedly claimed that Patty Jenkins' big screen stand-alone was "in trouble" throughout the post-production period.

Add to that the complaints about the (non-existent) attempt by Warner Bros to market it into the ground so they didn't have to make female-led movies any more (seriously, guys, don't be idiots), and the more susceptible of fans might have been worried.

Luckily, the first brief reactions to the film - which screened on Friday - have hit the web and they all look pretty positive. At this stage even Twitter seems to be embargoed, but there are snatches of some reactions out there, and there's a very positive picture emerging.

Most of the positivity is aimed at Patty Jenkins' directing, Gal Gadot's performance and the action, and it all makes for intriguing reading:

In another now-deleted tweet, writer Marc Andreyko said that "Gal Gadot gives a beautiful, nuanced, powerful performance", which follows pretty closely to the way her performance in Batman v Superman was received.

It's all a bit vague at the minute, but it's good to hear that things are looking good for the film. Here's to it opening above $100m in the first weekend.
