Is it just me: or does it seem "Wonder Woman's" buzz is beginning to slide? It'll be a hit--but can't be much bigger than SUPE2 or SUICD.

Around $275M delist? We still can't trust DC Comics critical quality (yet), and though Wonder Woman is beloved at the moment, can her own solo adventure hold up for a 2 hour runtime? And will people be interested in a prequel?

Its direct female-driven competition in June is LEAVY, THBDY, and BGUIL (a genuine sleeper)...and if Wonder Woman proves to be intensely feminist, expect the fanboys to be turned off in favor of PRME2, BAYWT, or MUMY4.

At least we can all agree NO ONE wants to see MTDTR, male or female.

V: Wonder [WONDE] gets pushed back to 11/17/17   RazorHawk on Feb 13, 13:05

More commercially viable directly against Justice League? Edge of Seventeen all over again. {nm}   notfabio on Feb 13, 13:10

Counter-programming against future DC Comics films could be economically viable, as we've learned DC doesn't scream "quality."   chosenone2oo5 on Feb 13, 13:20

If they wanted to be ballsy, they'd open it up against Wonder Woman. {nm}   diamondman56 on Feb 13, 13:49

Wonder vs. Wonder Woman. How Wonderful. {nm}   chosenone2oo5 on Feb 13, 13:50

Nice, like Inferno / Into the Inferno {nm}   shadowking on Feb 13, 13:53

How Infernal. {nm}   chosenone2oo5 on Feb 13, 13:58

November basically seems to be tentpoles and counterprogramming. Thor/Bad Moms 2, Daddys Home 2, JL/Wonder, Coco/Orient express. {nm}   reelreptile on Feb 13, 13:45

Oh wow. Women LOVE Thor! I "wonder" how many will forego seeing Hemsworth's biceps to see Mila Kunis be a bad mother! I'm intrigued! {nm}   chosenone2oo5 on Feb 13, 13:48

Based on the box office of previous Thor movies, it seems like a lot of fandom is more tumblr oriented than anything in the Bad Moms demo. {nm}   reelreptile on Feb 13, 14:04

I'm genuinely not sure what that means. Thor has men, women, young, old, fanboys, MCU, Disney, sci-fi, fantasy, rom-com, etc. fanbases. {nm}   chosenone2oo5 on Feb 13, 14:15

and Hulk {nm}   RazorHawk on Feb 13, 16:19

and Doctor Strange. And probably a couple other surprises we haven't heard of yet. {nm}   chosenone2oo5 on Feb 14, 16:19

Not sure about anyone else, everytime there's news on this, I always think of Wonder Woman... {nm}   ~JPV~ on Feb 13, 13:18

Every single time {nm}   shadowking on Feb 13, 13:25

No, it's just you. {nm}   ~JPV~ on Feb 13, 13:31

In all seriousness, if SUICD can gross $283M (by delist), I'd think Wonder Woman could too even with the summer competition {nm}   ~JPV~ on Feb 13, 13:33

Which admittedly, SUICD did not have. {nm}   ~JPV~ on Feb 13, 13:33

LEAVY, THBDY, and BGUIL are not competition for WONDR. TRWRC made $100M so there's an audience for MTDTR. {nm}   Antibody on Feb 13, 13:36

TRWRC had Apatow. This has Goldie Hawn's plastic face. LEAVY, THBDY, and BGUIL are female-driven counter programming to the "male gaze." {nm}   chosenone2oo5 on Feb 13, 13:37

They would have zero effect on WONDR's opening weekend. {nm}   Antibody on Feb 13, 13:39

Who's talking about just OW...? I'm talking the full 4 wks till delist. Isn't that what we're all trading for in the post-OW adjust HSX era? {nm}   chosenone2oo5 on Feb 13, 13:40

Superhero films drop off regardless of the competition. {nm}   Antibody on Feb 13, 13:41

Stiffer competition can take hold if DC Comics's films have not improved their critical quality (including WONDR) by then. {nm}   chosenone2oo5 on Feb 13, 13:43

and little effect by WONDR's third and fourth weekend. {nm}   Antibody on Feb 13, 13:40

Warner Bros. would be thrilled if it's that "disappointing" {nm}   diamondman56 on Feb 13, 13:50

Warner Bros., so far, has treated DC like a spoiled child: big box office, but they've not been happy at all with the films or fan backlash. {nm}   chosenone2oo5 on Feb 13, 14:00
