The New ‘Wonder Woman’ Ad Dares You to Believe that DC Can Make a Good Movie

Will Wonder Woman be any good? There’s plenty of reason to doubt. DC’s track record with their cinematic universe is shaky at best, with neither the muddled, joyless Batman v Superman or cluttered, catastrophic Suicide Squad inspiring much confidence. Rumors of behind-the-scenes chaos only substantiate the narrative that something is off in DC’s creative process.

And yet, it’s hard not to want Wonder Woman to succeed, and there are a few reasons to be optimistic. Director Patty Jenkins has made great movies like Monster. Star Gal Gadot was one of the bright spots in Batman v Superman. And then there are the trailers, which continue to look pretty fun.

Of course, Suicide Squad had good trailers, a reliable director and a solid cast too, so let’s not get ahead of ourselves. But Wonder Woman marks the first female-led superhero movie of the Superhero Movie Boom, so it’d be nice if it was a good one. We’ll know in a month’s time, one way or another.
