Woman-led film a wonderful thing

Adjust Comment Print

I need more female superhero movies, from both Marvel and DC, and some of them are going to stink as badly as "Avengers: Age of Ultron" and "Batman vs. Superman". Pictures and DC Films' Wonder Woman has earned $11 million in Thursday previews with $1.5 million from IMAX. It's the first time that Gadot's Diana really experiences and sees the violence of war up close and personal for herself, as she tries to just make it through No Man's Land to save a town of innocent civilians, who are being occupied by armed forces, on the other side.

"The time is absolutely right to bring Wonder Woman to movie audiences", says Jenkins.

The choice of casting seems ideal with Gal Gadot, the actress who plays Wonder Woman, not just being the pretty face in the film but giving the character depth and emotion throughout the entirety of the movie as well.

Featuring Gal Gadot as the Amazonian Princess Diana in the movie, the figure is finely crafted based on her appearance in Wonder Woman wearing the Themyscira training armor. The OGN by Christopher Moeller isn't my favorite Wonder Woman story, but it is a very cinematic one.

Controversial win for Team NZ
If Oracle wins the qualifiers, it will carry a one-point bonus into the first-of-seven America's Cup match beginning June 17. This means France, Japan and Sweden all have two points, leaving the event wide open.

Either way, whether the next Wonder Woman movie is another period piece or takes place in a post-Justice League world, we'll be first in line so long as Jenkins returns to direct. Wonder Woman vs. the JLA would be an event movie in the superhero genre to be sure.

And as the new Wonder Woman film hits theaters, hopefully some fans will look back and check out how Keri Russell was able to put her own unique stamp on the character. That's some kick-butt girl power, if I do say so myself. When she made her debut as Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I thought it was a peculiar choice and I didn't really care for her, but after seeing Wonder Woman I've done a complete 180°. But until then, tell us when you think Wonder Woman 2 should be set. A majority of them, anyway. More information is expected to be released in the coming months - hopefully at San Diego Comic-Con - but for now, all of the studio's focus is on Wonder Woman itself. And Patty, as you know if you've met her, is so intense and passionate and clear and decisive and a master storyteller.

To date, only Lebanon has chose to ban the film, which was inspired based on character in DC Comics.
