Actually, Wonder Woman Isn't a 'Badass' Character-She's Something Even Better

A majority of the characters in the movie should be familiar to fans of the Wonder Woman comics, though, albeit slightly modified. Inherently. "I'm so aware, obviously, that she's a woman and I'm a woman, but the great thing about that was I'm just making a movie about a superhero", Jenkins said, while Gadot explained, "I think there is such a misunderstanding about what "feminism" means". Actress Cathy Lee Crosby played Wonder Woman in a TV movie in 1974, however, the only previous iteration that truly matters is Lynda Carter's run as Diana in the Wonder Woman television series from 1975. That said, Warner Bros. could make a sequel announcement as early as San Diego Comic-Con this July. Until now, that is. Israeli-born star Gal Gadot, who plays Diana, aka: Wonder Woman, in both films, was the best part of "Batman v. Superman", and she continues to prove why she was cast in this coveted role.

"What I am hoping for with Wonder Woman is that it will create a new normal, a new template for what these movies can be", said Rowena Arguelles, a motion picture literary agent with Creative Artists Agency, which represents Jenkins.

As for Steve Trevor, a WWI spy and love interest for Wonder Woman, Chris Pine told ET, "The question for a film like this for me is, 'What is it like to be the damsel in distress?" It's too bad that, given the time in which the story takes place, we are unlikely to see Steve in a future film. Diana, coming from Themyscira and raised in a world without constricting women's garments and the patriarchy, is more liberated than the human women she meets in her stories, but she never had to drag herself out of a proverbial hell hole to get there. In the first of many memorable action sequences, the Amazons protect their home from the invading Germans in spectacular fashion, with dazzling fight choreography that captures the power and grace of these highly skilled warrior women. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers...and her true destiny. Armed with her shield, the Lasso of Hestia or, as it's more commonly known, the Lasso of Truth, and The Godkiller, a sacred sword capable of killing Ares, Diana leaves with Steve, who promises to take her to the front lines where she might meet Ares face-to-face. After the talky and turgid "Batman v. Superman" and hopelessly muddled "Suicide Squad" a year ago, the DC Comics franchise has received an invigorating shot in the metal-cuffed arm of handsome design and snappy storytelling.

Last year, there was a movement to boycott "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice", but the film was eventually shown. It's amusing, well-paced, exciting and the battle sequences are beautifully choreographed. "If we have that more, we'll have a better society". Diana isn't just a fierce warrior, she's allowed to be vulnerable, sensitive, confident, funny, romantic-everything, all at once. "She's not going back".

Gadot embodies the iconic demigoddess with an equally iconic performance.

She also has legit chemistry with Pine, who delivers a great turn as well. "We're here to try to carry forth something so lovely that she really brought into the world and we just want it to go into the future". A blonde Wonder Woman?

It's also worth noting that this isn't the first DC movie that the CBSIL has been trying to boycott from Lebanese theaters. From the start, she understood that accepting the Wonder Woman challenge would be a test of her stamina and ability to juggle her on and off camera agendas.

A lot of people are very excited for the release of Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman this Friday, but you know who isn't excited?
