Twitter Did Not Love ‘Wonder Woman 1984’

After a long wait, Wonder Woman 1984 hit the WarnerMedia streaming service and theaters on Christmas Day. As The Wrap notes, it’s the first Warner Bros. film to be released on a streaming site at the same time as its theater release date with no extra cost to viewers. That’s exciting news, but after watching the film yesterday, some fans are not too enthusiastic.

In the sequel to the first film that captivated audiences in June 2017, Gal Gadot and Chris Pine are back as Diana Prince (Wonder Woman) and Steve Trevor. Kristen Wiig is on board as villainess Cheetah, and Pedro Pascal plays Max Lord.

And though Patty Jenkins had a box office hit with her first take on the Wonder Woman story, Twitter if full of tweets who do not have favorable opinions of this second venture.

Jill Lepore, who is the author of The Secret History of Wonder Woman (2014), wrote in The New Yorker that “the new film about a female icon ignores her history as a female rebel.” Lepore says that the franchise, as a whole, could pay more attention to the history of women, especially during the pivotal eras in which these films are set:

“Patty Jenkins seems to be interested in history. She set her first Wonder Woman film during the First World War. And she set this new film in the Orwellian year of 1984. But she’s apparently not at all interested in the history of women: it’s got no place in either of her two “Wonder Woman” films, even though they both take place during major inflection points in that history, and even though the history of Wonder Woman, the comic book and the character, is inextricably bound up with the long, miserable, and unfinished struggle for women’s political equality.”

But not everyone has delved into the deep history of Wonder Woman as a character (Lepore’s book is a great read, by the way), didn’t hate the movie.

So. I guess make up your own mind, because Twitter is being very, well, Twitter about this movie. If you do watch it, at least you’ll see some incredible leg warmers, big hair, and chunky jewelry.
