Although movies set in the MCEU have been praised both by critics and fans, Warner Bros. had a tough luck when it came to movies set in the DCEU as all of the movies prior to Wonder Woman was heavily criticized for obvious reasons. However, with Wonder Woman, it seems that the studio finally fixed the problems and managed to release a great movie as critics have praised the movie. Moreover, the movie is set to be a blockbuster as it opened up to highest Thursday night from a female director with $11 million. While we have to wait a long time to see what Marvel has in store for us as the Avengers: Infinity War will make a significant impact on the future movies’ storyline. Interestingly, Wonder Woman star Chris Pine recently talked about his role in the movie and he talked about upcoming Marvel movie which will feature all of the superheroes Marvel has showcased so far in its movies.
He said, “Within this genre, it’s difficult to do something new, and usually, you just see a bunch of people killing one another, in outfits and blowing up cities. Like, I know there’s a thing called Infinity War, which is like, I don’t, really, like, Infinity War? We need more war for all time?”
Interestingly, Pine himself is playing a role in a similar movie. However, he went on to explain, “One of the reasons for sure. She, in particular, Patty [Jenkins] was a great reason why I wanted to be involved. I met her, I hadn’t read – there was no script. Then she told me what she wanted to do: the story, my character, and Gal’s character.”
“So, I thought at the heart of this is a woman who’s about love and compassion, and love trumps all. How great is that, you know? That’s a pretty, crazy, awesome thing.”
While the interview was pretty interesting, the whole thing just doesn’t make any sense. Most of the comic book movies and television shows are dedicated towards giving fans a good time rather than creating humane storytelling. Wonder Woman is set to become a box office hit but with Dead Men Tell No Tales coming soon, it will be interesting to see how the movie performs when the highly anticipated sequel to 2012 movie arrives at the theater.
