There are some weekends of the year that you know are just going to be huge - and we have one coming up. The world is currently completely infatuated with superheroes, and in a few days we will be getting a double dose of them, albeit in very different forms. Get ready for the live-action badass-ness of the DC Extended Universe's Wonder Woman, and prepare to get incredibly silly with the animated Captain Underpants.

Just remember, I'm not reviewing these movies, but rather predicting where they'll end up on the Tomatometer. Let's take a look at This Rotten Week has to offer.

Rotten Watch Prediction
80%

The DC Extended Universe had a rough 2016, with both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad getting shellacked by professional critics. As a result, many have viewed the franchise as being in serious trouble - but now it looks like Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman is here to potentially save the day. Early reactions are overwhelming positive (at least in the Twitter-verse), and this could be the bounce back that the DC world has been waiting for. It's been a slog for other flicks to find the right tone and footing for these comic book movies, but it looks like this one gets it right.

Wonder Woman is director Patty Jenkins' first feature film since the critically acclaimed Monster (82%) all the way back in 2003, though she's accumulated a bunch of TV credits since then. This one could keep her high on the Tomatometer. It stands to reason the early good vibes translate to a solid final score.
