Since its premiere on June 2, Wonder Woman has been gaining widespread praise from both audiences and critics alike and currently sits at a 93 percent approval rating at Rotten Tomatoes. Even members of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, such as Mark Ruffalo, who plays the Hulk, and Chris Evans, who portrays Captain America, have offered their appreciation for the movie on social media. Now the latest person to praise Wonder Woman is none other than the DC Extended Universe’s own Jared Leto who plays the villain the Joker.
According to a report from ComicBook.com, the actor took to Instagram in order to share his praise of the movie after he treated his entire 30 Seconds to Mars family. Apparently everyone who joined Jared Leto for the Wonder Woman showing ended up leaving with smiles on their faces, which was certainly the case in the photo the actor shared as well.
In his post on social media, the actor shared a picture of himself with his 30 Seconds to Mars crew, all of whom seemed to be smiling and many posed with their arms crossed like the heroine herself, along with a message in which he said that he took his musical family with him to see the movie. He said that they all loved the movie, as well as the actors. In fact, Jared Leto said that he loved everything about Wonder Woman. He also pointed out that Gal Gadot’s turn as the superhero was perfection.
The actor said that overall it was great work and he wanted to send congratulations and thanks to the members of the movie’s team as well as Warner Brothers Entertainment. He followed up his Instagram post by saying that when he was a child he would religiously watch the original Wonder Woman television series starring Linda Carter.
Although it is unlikely that Jared Leto and Gal Gadot will share screen time in the DCEU, fans are certainly hoping to see more of the actor’s Joker in the future since once of the biggest complaints in terms of his turn in Suicide Squad was that he did not get a lot of screen time. Fans of Wonder Woman will certainly be getting more of Gal Gadot as she is already set to be a part of the upcoming Justice League, as well as the planned sequel to her solo adventure. Whether or not the two ever share screen time, it is clear that Gal Gadot has proven to be an outstanding addition to the DCEU in her solo outing and has earned the appreciation of many of her contemporaries.
