What is amazing to me is that WW has somehow been credited with being in a position that put’s it in some upper category above MoS and BvS. Well guess what……it’s not. It’s a good movie but it’s ridiculous to assume that it comes across as, “that’s how it should be done”.

Wonder Woman has succeded simply by the fact that it is not divisive. Everybody likes it to some extent.

Man of Steel and BvS have a lot of people who liked and even loved them. However they also have a lot… Read more »
