Is The ‘Wonder Woman’ Movie A Mess? A WB Employee Spills The Beans

"Don't try to hide behind the great trailer. People inside are already confirming it's another mess"
Wonder Woman, DC, Warner Bros

Hot on the heels of ‘Suicide Squad’s’ release, WB and DC have yet again been receiving mixed responses on one of their DCCU instalments.  DC Entertainment is three movies in – ‘Man of Steel,’ ‘Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice’ and ‘Suicide Squad’ – and all three have received mediocre to negative reviews from critics while audience reviews on Rotten Tomatoes have been more positive than professional critics.  With that said, the movies are making a large amount of money.  However, they have yet to enter the billion dollar club as a few of Marvel’s movies have.

Regardless, the direction of the DC Cinematic Universe has not only upset some critics and some DC fans, it has royally pissed off one of WB’s employees.

This employee, writing under the name of Gracie Law, has published an open letter to Kevin Tsujihara (CEO of Warner Bros. Entertainment) criticizing him and the direction of the company.  It is an amazing insight into the company and a must read for anyone interested in the business aspects of movies.

One section that stood out are the author’s comments about the up-coming ‘Wonder Woman’ movie.  As the writer states, “Maybe Wonder Woman wouldn’t be such a mess. Don’t try to hide behind the great trailer. People inside are already confirming it’s another mess.”

Currently, what has been revealed about the ‘Wonder Woman’ film has been widely praised by fans. If the ‘Wonder Woman’ film is another DCCU installment that is met with mixed critical response and under performs compared to Marvel’s movies, it will be seen as another sign that DC Entertainment simply can’t compete against Marvel in the movie theaters.

So, what do you all think of this?  Do you think the article was written by a real WB employee?  Do you agree with their perspective?  And are you worried about the ‘Wonder Woman’ like this employee is?

    I don’t know what to think. I plan on seeing Suicide Squad and Wonder Woman in the theater regardless

      Like you, I also don’t know what to think. No one has successfully disproved the piece yet, and the piece feels genuine. Overall, it seems we’ll have to wait and see how comes from DC and WB.

        Not sure what to think.

        I’ll probably go see it regardless. It can’t possibly be as bad as Batman Vs Superman: Yawn Of Justice. And if it is somewhere around the same quality as Suicide Squad in terms of fan reaction over critics reaction. Warner can probably call it a win.

        I personally think they should just get rid of Zack Snyder and go back to the drawing board.
