Insider Info Claims 'Wonder Woman' Will Be a Disaster
It seems like every week we hear another rumor regarding trouble with a DC Extended Universe movie. Whether it's Justice League being terrible or Ben Affleck's Batman movie being delayed, the reports coming out of Warner Bros. these days never seem to be good. Which brings us, unfortunately, to Wonder Woman.

The movie, which hits theaters in June, looks great so far. The WWI period setting seems like it's going to work, and the movie's latest trailer featured some extraordinary action and dialogue that wasn't too cringeworthy. But Suicide Squad had some nice trailers, too, and we all know how that worked out. Now, a film reviewer at Schmoes Know is reporting that a DC insider told them recently that Wonder Woman is an absolute mess, saying:
Opening quote
"So, I don't want to throw anyone under the bus. We have somebody within our community who has gotten insider information that broke my effing heart this week, because I have tremendous belief that Wonder Woman is gonna be awesome and I heard it stinks from the same person who told me that they heard that BvS [Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice] stinks... The person who I spoke to... their response was 'I'm very disappointed in what I saw, and it seems like all the problems are the same problems. It's discombobulated, it doesn't have narrative flow. It's just very disjointed.'"
Closing quote


Yikes. We really hope the report turns out not to be true, because hearing that Warner is repeating the mistakes of the atrocious Batman v Superman is not only disconcerting for fans of Wonder Woman, but for fans of all DC movies. If they're not going to learn from their misfires, then what hope is there for any of these future films they have planned?

The full quote can be found at roughly 1:41:30 in the latest episode of the Schmoes Know weekly show on YouTube. Hopefully the rumor turns out to be just that, a rumor, and Wonder Woman will turn out great. But until we actually see the movie, we're going to go into it with a heavy dose of skepticism.

Wonder Woman comes out on June 2, 2017.
