It’s no surprise to anyone that Wonder Woman has already become one of the biggest movies this summer, if not the entire year so far. A huge record-breaking turnout at the box office goes along with that as a huge factor.
What shouldn’t be surprising is the fact that the movie is dominating nearly all forms of social media, in all conversations. For one thing, the movie was exactly what DC needed from its live action movies, since the previous three movies received mixed to negative reviews, whereas Wonder Woman has earned overwhelmingly positive reviews. Much of the positive feedback was definitely in anticipation of leading actress Gal Gadot after giving a scene-stealing performance in Batman V. Superman in 2016.
Wonder Woman has performed much better than other films at the start of the summer, many of which were high-profile films that only ended as a disappointment. This film generated a lot of positive buzz and will be sitting at the top of the box office even a week after its debut.
According to Variety, Wonder Woman is the most tweeted film so far this year, in fact upwards of 2.19 million tweets were sent out about the movie in its first week, moreso than Oscar winner La La Land. Wonder Woman herself is the most tweeted movie character so far this year as well. In addition, Gal Gadot, director Patty Jenkins and Chris Pine are all the most tweeted names that are most associated with Wonder Woman.
The vast amount of talk on social media really shouldn’t be a big surprise, since moviegoers have been excited to see a female-led superhero adaptation in the modern era for a long time and Wonder Woman was more than able to deliver.
