Wonder Woman is making history before it even hits theaters, currently sitting atop the superhero heap with the highest score of any DC or Marvel movie in history with a whopping 97% on the Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer, which averages out film reviews to hit a consensus opinion.

By comparison, the only modern superhero movie to hit 97% is Pixar's The Incredibles. The closest competitors in the Marvel films are Iron Man at 94%, The Avengers at 92%, Guardians of the Galaxy at 91% and Captain America: Civil War at 90%. Wonder Woman is the only film to be rated "Fresh" from the DC Extended Universe.

While we won't know where the final score ends up once the reviews are all in, there's no doubt that Wonder Woman is already guaranteed to be the best-received female-led superhero film ever. DC and Warner Bros. look to have a bona fide hit on their hands. Here's hoping, anyway.

Patty Jenkins has already heard the news, and her reaction is priceless.

Wonder Woman opens June 2.
