After that there is no more praise for the DC sequel. Instead, he explains why the film disappointed him so badly. This is mainly due to the script. For Yves, Wonder Woman has 1984 one of the dumbest, craziest and most bizarre storieshe's ever seen in a superhero movie.

It doesn't look any better with many characters. Figures like Barbara Minerva played by Kristen Wiig or The Mandalorian star Pedro Pascal as villain Maxwell Lord are one for Yves embarrassing failure.
