    Default Wonder Woman movie

    Wonder Woman was created by William Moulton Marston and first appeared in 1942. Marston used the pseudonym, Charles Moulton. He was a psychologist and also invented the lie detector. Gal Gadot is Wonder Woman, and her movie is set during World War I. Gadot is skinny as a rail, although she does have a look. Lynda Carter is not easy to top, and I suppose Warner Brothers decided to take a different approach. Wonder Woman (Diana Prince) is from the island of Themyscira. Some say Paradise Island. I compiled a list of 25 Wonder Woman candidates and wanted Bridget Regan to get the part. Warner Brothers owns DC Comics. DC originally stood for Detective Comics. Disney owns Marvel.

    In an era when movies are loud and violent, Wonder Woman has a humanness about it. And unlike other superhero films, there is some genuine humor.

    Zack Snyder came up with the story, and Allan Heinberg did the screenplay. Patty Jenkins directed.

    Gal Gadot is actually a great Wonder Woman. She has that look! Gal is Jewish, from Israel, and served in the Israeli army. She has a sweet smile.

    Wonder Woman was sculpted out of clay by her mother, Hippolyta, and brought to life by Zeus. We are shown her origin.

    Connie Nielsen is Hippolyta. Robin Wright is Antiope. Robin was Jenny in Forrest Gump. Antiope trains Diana to fight.

    Chris Pine is Steve Trevor. When Trevor's plane goes down off the coast of Themyscira, Diana dives in the water and pulls him to safety. Trevor tells Diana about the war and takes her to London, then to the front. There are the images associated with the war: no man's land and poison gas. We see Kaiser Wilhelm II.

    The film utilizes the Lasso of Truth and Bullets and Bracelets. Lynda Carter's invisible plane was scrapped. Diana uses her lasso to make Trevor confess that he is a spy. Germans are the perennial bad guys, Warner Brothers being Jewish.

    Diana and Steve Trevor dance in the snow and spend the night together. I assume they have sex.

    Mythology and history mix. Of course, all movies are confusing to a degree. Wonder Woman was a little girl, then became a woman in her mid-20s. Will she continue to age? Hippolyta did! Are not the Amazons immortal?

    We must realize this is fantasy. Wonder Woman is a fictional character. All stories have inconsistencies.

    We think Ludendorff is Ares, the god of war, only to learn that Sir Patrick is Ares. Wonder Woman finally kills Ares, but war does not end war because the desire for war exists in the hearts and minds of men (and women). War gives us purpose.

    When Steve Trevor sacrifices his life, it gives Wonder Woman the strength to defeat Ares.

    Wonder Woman is the ultimate movie. I thought it would be made in the 90s. It took another generation.

    I got the impression that the movie began as World War II was starting. Diana looks at her picture and recalls her experiences in World War I. I believe Warner Brothers planned a sequel from the get-go. Gal Gadot makes a fine Wonder Woman.
