She said: "It's more raw, a little less quippy. Hopefully you'll enjoy the banter and relationship between Lois and Clark, but it's a totally new imagining of the story."

Despite a pretty strong screenplay, the two leads are no more than functional and Wonder Woman (Gadot) is a damp squib. But if the film lacks Marvel's sense of fun, in its fidgety and…
