The road seems to keep getting rockier for Warner Bros., as bad news seems to follow them around like the plague. That said, a potential glimmer of hope may have just reared its head in the form of Wonder Woman test screenings.
The results are officially in! Let's take a look:
Some lucky individuals were able to catch the test screening and conveyed nothing but positive energy about the upcoming film. In fact, many individuals tweeted out some information that they received through sources that attended the screening. Like this this tweet for example:
One thing is for sure: The positive results of the #WonderWoman test screening is glorious news to DC fans' ears. Or is it? Now that I think about it, it actually sounds kind of familiar.
We've Been Here Before
Frankly, this situation seems all too familiar to that of fellow DCEU film, Suicide Squad, that was released last summer. For those who don't remember, Suicide Squad also received similar positive test screenings way back when and we all know how that turned out. Changes to the film made by Warner Bros. higher-ups were blamed for having damaged the film beyond repair. In fact, they later released the extended cut of the film in order to try and make up for the lack of cohesiveness.
The same situation also happened with Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice at the beginning of last year. The alterations and exporting of critical scenes caused the film to feel a bit rushed and lack-luster. Once again, Warner Bros. did what they later did for Suicide Squad and released an ultimate edition of the film that included the deleted scenes. So, should we be worried that Wonder Woman will simply follow suit? Clearly, Warner Bros. is struggling to get along with its filmmakers and actors alike. Why else would Ben Affleck be wanting to ditch The Batman and Matt Reeves not want to direct it?
Final Thoughts And What To Expect Going Forward
At this point, it's really hard to tell what kind of film Wonder Woman will end up being. Hopefully, Warner Bros. will start listening to the fans and seeing the errors to their ways in order to get their films back on track. It's plain and simple that a change needs to happen sooner rather than later. Otherwise, we may be looking at some dark days ahead for the #DCEU.
What do you think? Will Warner Bros. higher-ups alter the film before its release? Let me know in the comments down below!
