Wonder Woman is the most tweeted film of 2017 so far

'Wonder Woman' Actresses Hint at More Amazonian Backstory for 'Justice League' 'Wonder Woman' Star Robin Wright is Returning to the DCEU in 'Justice League'

"Recently we've, for some reason, only chosen men to be those universal characters so often". She can save "the world of men" because she's immune to their bullshit.

Robin Wright as General Antiope in "Wonder Woman". After Gadot returned to Israel, Snyder called her with the big reveal. In that case, though, they'll probably be in for a rude awakening. While they were on the set of Wonder Woman, Lilly Aspell said that she would watch the other woman while she was filming in order to attempt to listen to her accent and learn all that she could. Her role wasn't huge in that film, but I thought she was the best part of the movie. Hmmm ... it may be time to pull out those old Wonder Woman comics of mine for a reread.

Disobeying her mother's orders, Diana takes Steve to London so that he can report his findings; the Germans have new chemical weapons they want to unleash on the front lines of battle. Actually, a rogue tear snuck out of my eye during the opening sequence, when a young Diana watches and imitates the fierce female warriors training with General Antiope. Her name is Nubia and much the way Diana was formed out of white clay, Nubia was created from black clay. It's exciting without getting tedious, and it has numerous same qualities I valued in the television show "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"-namely, it stresses the importance of compassion and teamwork, rather than victory through sheer brute force, as is nearly exclusively the purview of typical superhero movies".

May backs Khan as Trump continues attacks
Khan, who initially chose to ignore Trump's comments on the ground that he had more important things to do, called on the May government to cancel the proposed visit.

"And if she can beat the God of War then how come she had such a tough time with Doomsday?" She wears a ring that allows Ares to manipulate her, and it's only when Diana finally destroys it that Nubia is able to snap out of the mind control and become a force for good. "I think that there's a lot more to explore", Gadot said before Nielsen added, "[Robin Wright and I] got to do more in Justice League as well. Two Alamo Drafthouse theaters in the Denver area held women-only screenings of the movie as a fundraiser for the ACLU and Planned Parenthood. I believe the critics are blowing this up as a greater film than it is, but I will confess that it's the best film of the summer so far.

So why aren't women going to see women in superhero roles?
