After a long wait, DC fans will finally get to see Wonder Woman in theaters this Friday on June 2. It is also after a really long time that Hollywood will be releasing a movie with a female superhero. If you're looking for more movies like Wonder Woman before the movie comes out or just want to see more similar movies while you wait for Justice League later in the year, here are five movies you can watch:
The trio of Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu worked to prove that action heroes didn't have to be all male. Released in 2000, Charlie's Angels became insanely popular and remain memorable to this day. With action and comedy rolled into one, Charlie's Angels were entertaining to see on screen. It doesn't aim to be any more complex than it needs to be and if you're considering watching some mindless action, you can give this one a try.
This one is a bit more violent than the others in the list, but it's to be expected from a Tarantino movie. But if you do love kick-ass female heroes like Wonder Woman, The Bride will not let you down. While Uma Thurman may just be out for revenge instead of saving the world, Kill Bill movies live up to all your expectations. It's engaging and cleverly constructed, making it a favorite of many movie buffs.
Much like we didn't know Gal Gadot before she became Wonder Woman, nobody had heard a lot about Jennifer Lawrence before she played the role of Katniss Everdeen in this book adaptation. The Hunger Games series have wonderful special effects that transport you to the dystopian Panem. Exploring many themes, the three movies follow Katniss through her journey from a nobody to a hero and a symbol of a revolution.
Another 2000 release, Miss Congeniality wasn't the perfect movie, but it was perfectly entertaining. Much like Wonder Woman's fish-out-of-water story, Sandra Bullock has to let go of her tomboyish persona to enter the unfamiliar world of beauty pageants to save the day. It's a light-hearted movie that makes for a fun watch.
This DCEU movie was a promising one, but unfortunately, the subsequent movies didn't live up to the hype until now. But much like Wonder Woman, Man of Steel got the casting right. Henry Cavill plays the perfect Superman in this superhero movie like Gal Gadot is the perfect Wonder Woman. Although Wonder Woman works as a stand-alone film, if you're looking to give another DCEU film a try, it should be this one.
