Wonder Woman (2009)
Wonder Woman, KILLING it. See, THIS is why they can’t make a Wonder Woman movie, because Wonder Woman is not putting up with your bullshit, and they KNOW they’d get ripped to shreds if they did her dirty.
Yo, I don’t think you understand how important this movie is to me.
First off, barring the unstructured continuity and treating it as a stand-alone origin film, the scripting in this film was superb, especially when demonstrating how Diana could not believe how women were treated and acted in Man’s World.
From the moment she lands in NYC and sees a young girl distraught because she was forced into the role of “damsel in distress” by her male playmates, to the point where Etta Candy actually views her as a THREAT to her relationship with Steve Trevor simply because of how the patriarchy has taught women to be at each other’s throats for a man’s attention.
And Diana doesn’t even see Etta as a threat to her because she views all women as her sisters, regardless of race or social standing or age, that’s simply how she was raised (for any not familiar with the DC history of Amazons, there were several tribes on Themyscira, not just Greeks, so Diana was brought up around Amazons of varying races).
It’s so wild that they can’t simply transcribe this movie into a live-action version, and we all know WHY they refuse to make a WW movie. Even Joss Whedon dropped his attempt, most likely because he could not find a way to torture or maim Diana to give her “character growth” as he does to all his original female protagonists. It probably accounts for why Black Widow played such a bit role in the Avengers as well.
