Lupita Nyong'o reviews Wonder Woman: 'Fierce. Sensual. Just amazing.'

Jessica Chastain, Octavia Spencer, and Krysten Ritter are also psyched

Posted on

Marvel actress Lupita Nyong’o is sending some heartfelt praise to two women of the DC movie universe.

On Friday the Black Panther cast member posted a glowing review of Wonder Woman on social media, calling the film “just amazing” and applauding the work of star Gal Gadot and director Patty Jenkins.

“Ok people, I just left the theater and KNOW for CERTAIN that the GODS have seen fit to BLESS us with #WONDERWOMAN,” Nyong’o wrote. “W.O.W. It is a superhero movie like none I have ever seen. Epic. FUN. Engaging. Stylistically Captivating. Funny in an honest, not-trying-too-hard way. Witty. Smart. Perfect length. Fierce. Sensual. Just amazing.”

Gadot “will glue you to the screen,” she added, while Jenkins “IS NOT PLAYING AROUND” as she delivers “AMAZON REALNESS in an exquisitely directed story.”

Ok people, I just left the theater and KNOW for CERTAIN that the GODS have seen fit to BLESS us with #WONDERWOMAN. W.O.W. It is a superhero movie like none I have ever seen. Epic. FUN. Engaging. Stylistically Captivating. Funny in an honest, not-trying-too-hard way. Witty. Smart. Perfect length. Fierce. Sensual. Just amazing. @Gal_Gadot will glue you to the screen and at the same time make you want to run to the nearest costume shop to get your W on and join the #GODESSNESS right away (W = #WomanWarriorOfTheWorld). Director #PattyJenkins IS NOT PLAYING AROUND, as she gives us some AMAZON REALNESS in an exquisitely directed story. Chris Pine is irresistable. The score is KILLER. And it is the type of film that I think you can enjoy over and over. This movie definitely goes down as a classic in its genre for me. @wonderwomanfilm #RunAndGoSeeIt #HadToGush #PromotionFromTheHeart.

Nyong’o wasn’t the only high-profile actress sharing her Wonder Woman excitement on social media. Jessica Chastain posed with an old-school Lynda Carter T-shirt while encouraging women to “get in formation,” Octavia Spencer praised the movie for promoting diversity and female empowerment, and Krysten Ritter (star of Marvel’s Jessica Jones) said she couldn’t wait to see it.

#WONDERWOMAN Ok ladies, now let's get in formation. @gal_gadot #PattyJenkins
