Apart from getting the green light on Wonder Woman 3, the hits keep coming for Wonder Woman 1984. First— it lost its certified fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes and now, its rating on IMDb has fallen to an all-time low as more and more viewers keep adding their less than satisfied reviews after watching the film.
(The following article contains major spoilers for Wonder Woman 1984)
While there is a considerable portion of the population that found no wonder in 2017’s Wonder Woman, despite the glowing reviews by many critics, Wonder Woman 1984 is even more less liked by the audience who have been openly criticizing the disjointed plot of the film. There have been many complaints about Chris Pine’s return as Steve Trevor in another person’s body and Gal Gadot’s Diana Prince showing the least morality in letting her boyfriend taking over an innocent human’s life.
From Steve, a WW1 pilot knowing to fly a fighter jet to the silly storyline that Diana’s cheesy speech towards the end had the ability to make 7 billion people renounce their wish, the plotline of Wonder Woman 1984 is too spotty to tell a coherent, engaging story. And even though it’s rating on Rotten Tomatoes has somewhat stabilized (but it is now even lower than Aquaman’s 65%), it’s position on IMDb is steadily sinking.
The user-voted platform currently has over 73,000 reviews for Wonder Woman 1984 and its aggregrate has now pitched the latest Jenkins’ directed feature as the lowest-rated DC Extended Universe film on IMDb with a mere 5.7 score. While its predecessor, Wonder Woman, is the highest-rated DCEU film on the platform with a high score of 7.4 from 549,000+ votes, Wonder Woman 1984 has been given low reviews more than the likes of Suicide Squad, Zack Snyder-directed Man of Steel, Shazam!, and Aquaman, which makes it the only DCEU film with a less than 6.0 pointer rating on IMDb.
But despite its steadily falling rating on both IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes, Wonder Woman 1984 debuted with $16 million at the box office, which is the biggest opening weekend for any film that has been released since the pandemic lockdown. In fact, it’s opening day box office count has surpassed even the collect of Tenet.
And looks like that’s all Warner Bros. was concerned about as even though viwers have been less than happy with Wonder Woman 1984, the production house has already given the official nod to Wonder Woman 3 and Jenkins has been confirmed as the director.
