Why Wonder Woman is groundbreaking

Posted June 09, 2017

Patty Jenkins belongs in that category. Speaking of perverse, this is the first feature film directed by Patty Jenkins since her 2003 Oscar-winning film Monster, and let me hear y'all say that ain't right.

She was given a one-picture deal with the studio reluctant to commit to a director who had just one previous film, her 2003 debut Monster, under her belt.

Wonder Woman's traditional bustier costume had a panel cut out in front which was then covered with green cloth so that visual effects could be generated and the baby bump could be hidden easily.

Jenkins is the third director that has emerged out of the DC universe after Zack Snyder and David Ayer.

Seeing how well Wonder Woman has performed at the box office along with garnering massive critical acclaim across the globe, it nearly seems like a no-brainer that Jenkins will be approached for the sequal. However, Nielsen, who plays Hippolyta, Queen of Themyscira and mother of Diana/Wonder Woman, divulged an intriguing tidbit about the character's future, namely that she and Robin Wright's Antiope will have a role in Justice League. "And she said, 'I really like this colored-smoke thing.'" He laughs.

Centering on Diana's origins on Paradise Island, Chris Pine's Steve Trevor crashes into the lives of Diana and her Amazons, revealing that the "great war", World War I, is on their doorstep and could mean that Ares, the God of War, is rising in strength. She is set to begin negotiations with Warner Bros. bosses to return for a follow-up, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

She shared: "I couldn't even do one pull-up when I started". Maybe these exhausted tropes exist because female action movie heroes are still written and directed nearly exclusively by men, or maybe it's because some women adopt masculinity as a way to cope and compete in a male-dominated society. Also see a real "wonder woman" in the film Megan Leavey, which opens this weekend starring Kate Mara and Rex the Dog. "Thank you for making this weekend the most unbelievable weekend and craziest weekend I've ever had in my life".
