Also why pick Beyonce when Gina Torres exists?
You know that when Joss Whedon was attached to the Wonder Woman project, Gina Torres told him she would be playing Wonder Woman, right?
Also if you’re still trying to think of a good lady villain for Wonder Woman to fight, Circe. They have a pretty intense hatred for each other in the comics. Hell she turned Wonder Woman into a pig in JLU.
What I really want, and know I won’t get, is a live-action, big-budget, shot-for-shot remake of the entire DCAU
I’m currently working on a grant proposal for a grant I never intend to apply for, on a topic I never intend to write about again. It’s just an outline of a potential paper, but it’s 14 pages and I’m still trying to make it longer. Then tomorrow, I’m doing the final revisions of my more-than-5000-word thesis on Deborah Gannet
Remember when that anonymous person tried to act like I’m not a historian
I generally avoid energetic dogs, squish-faced cats, and people who get angry at anyone who isn’t upset about pluto’s reclassification as a dwarf planet

Sounds like an okay plot, except that I absolutely hated 300 and would never go see a film that attempted to emulate its aesthetic, tone, or style. I’m glad Zack Snyder has matured as a filmmaker and learned to create watchable films like Watchmen and good films like Man of Steel. I’m also told sucker punch is pretty okay, but I can’t personally vouch for that.
I also wouldn’t want Beyoncé as Diana, but it’s mostly because I’ve been feeling oversaturated with Beyoncé lately and would really like to see somebody less known take the part.
Now, I loved Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman from the get go, and she also gives us a superhero lead who is neither white (in the American conception of race) nor male.
But the thing is, we’ve never seen a cinematic Wonder Woman before. The first actress to play Wonder Woman cinematically is going to become an a-lister as a result, and Beyoncé is already there. I’d rather see someone who isn’t already a household name BECOME one than see someone who is a household name have one more thing added to their already long resumé.
Also, honestly, I’m kind of over Ares. I only really know Diana from justice league and the trinity trilogy, but there’s got to be an awesome lady villain she can fight. Most of the conversations in a superhero movie tend to involve what the villain is doing, and I’d hate to see the first Wonder Woman movie fail the Bechdel test because they couldn’t be bothered to find someone for her to fight other than Ares.
I’d suggest a rogue amazon who has exposed Themyscira and is attempting to provoke a war between her home and “man’s world” in an attempt to have the loser destroyed and grab power over the weakened victors. Diana would attempt to avert this war, facing opposition on both sides, and in the end, would end up being appointed as a global representative of Themyscira.
I also believe DC is attempting to cut in on Marvel’s market now. I think they’ve pushed up Diana’s film debut into this film so that she becomes a fan favorite like Black Widow, and then actually making a solo movie while Marvel is still dragging their feet with “Iron Man 70: now with 40% more JARVIS” and “the Avengers 2: the white people brigade vs. Not Darkseid.”
Sometimes you’ll see a time-displaced character like Ichabod Crane or Captain America and a lot of the fans will paint them as being like, completely oblivious when it comes to sex
Like, I know Steve is supposed to be sort of inexperienced in that area at the beginning of his story, but Ichabod was a married man who had a child, I’m pretty sure he’s got at least a passing familiarity with the beast with two backs
Can we all collectively stop pretending we’re the first generation to discover, have, think about, talk about, or engage in different forms of sex? The number of people in the past who had to have sex for you to be here on earth, reading this post, is larger than the number of people on earth today, and believe it or not, if someone got zapped to the present for real and needed to take a quiz on how to do sex, they’d probably score about as well as somebody today
