The embargo has officially lifted for Wonder Woman, and it looks like the Patty Jenkins directed film may be the first movie in the DC Extended Universe to be praised by critics. Early screenings for the film have been getting positive reactions from critics, and fans alike. Below are just a few of the reactions that people have had to the movie via Twitter; many praising the story, action, and Gal Gadot herself…
Embargo lifted, so I can say unequivocally that Patty Jenkins delivered a true Wonder Woman story, in more ways than I honestly hoped.

Loved WONDER WOMAN. She reminds me of Christopher Reeve's Superman: true north superhero w/ no angst or cynicism, which is needed right now.

The most wonderful thing about WONDER WOMAN is the wonderful Wonder Woman. Gal IS Wonder Woman. Now then, about WONDER WOMAN

One critic even put the movie on the same level as Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight:
Very pleased to report that #WonderWoman is the best DC movie since THE DARK KNIGHT. I'm already looking forward to seeing it again.

So is Wonder Woman as good as early reactions are suggesting? Fans will find out soon enough. However, it’s a very good sign that the embargo has been lifted so early. Embargoes for Batman v. Superman and Suicide Squad were lifted right before release, which is never a good sign…

Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
