Entertainment Weekly's "Ultimate Guide to Wonder Woman" is out now. This DC comic book movie has everything: a good cast, incredible sets, wonderful stunts, and an interesting story.

If anything, I don't think the DC movies have been dark enough, which leaves them stuck somewhere between darkness and PG-friendly commercialism, which is no place to be when you aim to have your movies be taken seriously. It's not often that woman get to see themselves in the role of the hero, never mind one who has complexity.
"It was painful and sad because I really loved those guys and I loved the idea of us making a Thor together, but it's one of those things", Jenkins told IndieWire.
