Although Wonder Woman 1984 received more positive feedback from critics than the negative still, it no longer reaches Rotten Tomatoes’ 60-percent positive benchmark for a Fresh rating.
Out of the 377 reviews for the DC movie Wonder Woman 1984, 153 said they disliked the film. But despite the negative feedback, the movie still has 224 positive remarks.
This includes one from Brandon Davis of ComicBook.com who says, “The movie delivers an exciting and inspirational new tale, with a surprising level of worldly commentary.”
The downgraded hype
Rotten Tomatoes says that Gal Gadot’s movie, Wonder Woman 1984, is no longer “fresh.” The highly anticipated sequel lost its coveted “Certified Fresh” status days after the movie premiere.
Sadly, the Patty Jenkins film has been downgraded to “Rotten” on the site’s review-aggregator.
As divulged by the Critics Consensus of Rotten Tomatoes, the movie struggles with sequel overload.
However, it still offers enough vibrant escapism to satisfy fans of the franchise and its classic central character.
Another sequel is on its way!
Moreover, despite a slipping reputation with critics, WarnerMedia remains impressed with the film’s performance. The outfit pushed the third film into development.
Previously, Jenkins said she broke a story for Wonder Woman 3 with longtime DC scribe Geoff Johns. The next Wonder Woman movie could see the return of Kristen Wiig’s Cheetah.
“I developed a story, and Geoff Johns and I beat out an entire story for Wonder Woman 3 that we were super fired up about,” Jenkins told CinemaBlend previously.
Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot also said that the threequel would occur in current times in a separate interview.
She continued that the past was good. “Now, it’s time to move on,” the star recently told MTV News.
Meanwhile, the hype continues for Wonder Woman 1984 as it is now streaming on HBO Max. What do you think about Rotten Tomatoes’ tag of Wonder Woman 1984?
