The OGN by Christopher Moeller isn't my favorite Wonder Woman story, but it is a very cinematic one. If this woman were running for any office at all, she would have my vote.
Patty Jenkins is the first woman to direct a superhero movie for a major studio, and her finesse as a filmmaker comes across in the film's careful balancing act of earnest epic quality and unabashed fun.
Her last name doesn't rhyme with the word "doe". She has the heart of a human so she can be emotional, she's curious, she's compassionate, she loves people. As a result, audiences will be in constant awe of her power and resilience. It's a sturdy origin story, this education of Miss Diana Prince, establishing her as a compassionate badass who consistently proves her bravery, strength and commitment to justice ("I am willing to fight for those who can not fight for themselves").
Right now, there seems to be conflicting reports on just what form the inevitable Wonder Woman sequel will take. "It isn't stupid, it's magical".
Reviews have been overwhelmingly positive for "Wonder Woman", which stars Gal Gadot in the title role.
While actress Gal Gadot will wield the golden lasso on the silver screen this Friday, she's not the only one to slip into the tiara of Princess Diana of Themyscira. This movie definitely goes down as a classic in its genre for me. And so there was a regal quality and a toughness to her voice. In her previous EW interview, she recalled her daughter watching Sleeping Beauty, and questioning why the princess was so weak. But Jenkins also has Diana melting down at the sight of a baby on a London street, and the contrasts between feminine and masculine principles in this picture are for the most part gently conveyed: Steve is dedicated to snuffing warmongers; Diana is more concerned with war's victims. The one person with more knowledge of war is dismissed because of her gender. He supports Gadot perfectly in this film without getting lost as a secondary character. "The first thing I ever wanted to be was a fighter pilot". I always like how these extra scenes add a little deeper understanding of the character or what we can expect in the future.
The long road to this role proves that there is a lack of opportunity for women in Hollywood.
Did you enjoy the movie? I would have just looked for an American girl. I have the privilege of being told what fans love about her, and there are men that come up to me, there are women that come up to me.
Set at the end of WWI, Chris Pine stumbles upon the island paradise of the Amazon women and discovers Diana, aka Wonder Woman. "She's fierce, she's proactive, she believes in herself, she believes she can do everything, and that's a true woman to me".
As we have seen more than our fair share of superhero movies over the years, it is evident when writers and creative directors struggle to define more interesting universes for their characters.
