Maaaaaan....! DC severely screwed the pooch with Wonder Woman 2. My brother is a serious fan of the first movie. But he absolutely hates WW84. Hearing him go off about this movie is...something🤦♂️
Ok, so here's my hot take. WW1 was really bad only being successful due to WB media blitzing. Giving influencers more than they ever had before to praise and push the heck outta the movie hoping to pull the DCEU out of the red after the most failed, hilarious garbage run of all time. That coupled with a desperate fanbase caused the first film to be severely over praised. But WW was no good.
Now it's time to do part 2. After Patty being severely over, and mispraised for the crap first film not a single person had enough nerve to step up and tell her WW84 was coming along like pure garbage. I mean how could you... Influencers and fanboys praised every little thing she did making her out to be the greatest director of all time. Even treating Gal like the second coming of Christ. Which caused WB to give a subpar director complete freedom. Part 2 was Patty unchained and overconfident. It was 100% her baby.
This is what happens when you're hyped to be the greatest director of our time when you're really meta mediocre.
The media blitz backfired. I guess what they say is true; cheaters never win. The irony of WW1 being called the greatest DC film then part 2 being called the worse is just too much.
Gotta say i am little glad DC crapped the bed this severly with WW84. Gal and co. are the most overhyped actress, film and director of all time.
Crapping the bed THIS bad kinda even things out a bit. No going back after this. This one film makes it impossible to ever be even a decent franchise. The first was subpar....but overpraised and protected. Now we have a Green Lantern level, actually worse then GL sequel. Word of mouth plus the pandemic this movie's BO will be DISSAMLE.
Even if WW3 is really good it still won't even break the 800mil of the first film. WW84 killed this franchise.
It takes a epically crap movie to penetrate the armor this franchise had. Leaving so many hating Patty and the film outright. I haven't met a single person in the wild who doesn't absolutely hate this movie
