Wonder Woman, billed as “superheroine number one,” was one of the few (only) bright spots in the recent Batman V Superman movie, as Gal Gadot brought the Amazon princess the necessary badassery she needed to take over the big screen. A full-length Wonder Woman cinematic adventure is now in the works, mere decades overdue. Only Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman remain from DC’s Golden Age of comics, and while her two male counterparts have hit the big screen a number of times, the 2017 movie will mark the first Wonder Woman-centric film. In fact, Batman and Superman are both in their third movie incarnations, while Green Lantern and even DC’s Swamp Thing made it to the big screen before her.


Quote:
While unfortunate, it’s the kind of the battle Wonder Woman has been fighting since her conception. Psychologist William Moulton Marston created her in 1941 as a feminist hero, who then helped to get America through World War II in comics. He described his reasoning in a 1943 press release: “to set up a standard for children and young people of strong, free, courageous womanhood; and to combat the idea that women are inferior to men, and to inspire girls to self-confidence and achievement in athletics, occupations, and professionals monopolized by men.” In her secret identity, Diana Prince was a government secretary, helping out war hero Steve Trevor, while Wonder Woman fought various Axis enemies of the U.S, including Nazis, easily besting every foe she came across. She was usually aided by women, like her friend Etta Candy, or her fellow Amazons. While many DC female heroes were offshoots of their male counterparts (Supergirl, Batgirl, Hawkgirl), Wonder Woman stood solidly on her own.

The war years of the ’40s were Wonder Woman’s golden era of strength and formidability, but trouble brewed as early as 1948. As noted in the recent (and stellar) biography The Secret History Of Wonder Woman by Jill Lepore, after the war, DC hired foe of women’s rights Robert Kanigher as Wonder Woman’s new editor, and as a result, “Wonder Woman grew weaker every year.” In the ’50s, she was mostly consumed by her love for Steve Trevor, but also became a babysitter, model, and movie star.





Quote:
In all these later versions, fortunately, Wonder Woman is the strong, superior warrior we need her to be, and Marston designed her to be. By “softening” her in 1968, Denny O’Neil may have had his heart in the right place—saying that “I thought I was on the side of feminism,” in a History biography—but he did the character a disservice. From the war years, to the women’s lib era, to the battles that women are still fighting today, Wonder Woman means more to us now than ever. Forty years after the heroine rejoined the JLA, Black Widow remains one of the only Avengers without her own movie, although that hopefully will change soon. Early sets of Avengers and The Force Awakens action figures sets and games failed to include Black Widow and Rey, the female lead character. Wonder Woman’s own cinematic stand, with these decades of solid comics history behind it (and all the pop-culture impact that will follow), can’t come soon enough.

I hope my local library system gets more Wonder Woman books this summer. I need to read vol. 8: A Twist of Fate from her new 52. It was released on May, 18th.

^ Love that thanks
There is a new rumor surrounding the Wonder Woman film:
Quote:
There is a council or council of war in the Amazon. The council meets to make momentous decisions for the protection of themyscira and his amazon, as we have seen in the comics.
( Some scenes of the new 52 (wonder woman #37) where the council of the amazons called Diana to remind her and demand that fulfilled their responsibilities as amazon or resign to the throne.
Will be meeting the council of war of the amazons in the movie wonder woman? Call Diana to demand that complies with its responsibilities or I will be a mission? You will be required to take an important decision in your life? Or a threat looming over themyscira?
Many guesses based on a little information. And we still don’t know who will be the big villain of wonder woman. Most mentions ares.
