Let's be honest, the DCEU has been a bit of a mess to date. The films have seemed rushed as DC has tried to play catch up with the MCU.
All of that changed with the release of Wonder Woman
The fourth film in the DC Extended Universe is the series' first legitimate success.
We've seen Wonder Woman on the screen before, but never like this. Gal Gadot brings the Amazonian princess to life in the most spectacular way possible. She's a strong female hero, something that is badly needed in the DCEU (and MCU).
More than that though, Gadot's Wonder Woman is the first fully realized character in the DCEU. That may owe to the fact that Wonder Woman doesn't bring any franchise baggage to her solo debut. She doesn't have to share the screen with other heroes. Her origin story hasn't been told a thousand times, so it seems fresh. All in all, Wonder Woman is a winner from start to finish.
