It’s a great thirst quencher for blockbuster action and comic book surprises.

Also not to be underestimated is the impact of such a massive, action-packed production with bold, exciting set pieces in 2020. It was a year in which there was a lack of blockbuster excitement, with the genre films we saw being mostly limited in budget and so scope, and in this sense Wonder Woman 1984 is not just a sip of water after a hike through the desert, but a discovered oasis. Even without considering the pandemic, the theater closure, and the postponement of the release date, the film is still refreshingly voluminous and jam-packed with rousing car chases, explosive battles, and big surprises from comic book and Wonder Woman history some fans probably never expected at the big screen to see.
