For that is the attraction of this latest blockbuster, directed by Patty Jenkins (whose 2004 film "Monster" won an Oscar for Charlize Theron) - it's a balanced mix of romanticized Greek mythology along with thrilling popcorn action and a few amusing reflections on man/woman relations. Women represent just 17% of all behind the camera positions in the film industry, and when it comes to directing, the numbers are even more dismal. The Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot recently revealed an impressive new detail as to how she was five months pregnant when some of the scenes of the movie were shot.
The relationship between mother Hippolyta and daughter Diana will also be dealt with in the "Justice League" movie despite Diana leaving the island to save the world in the first "Wonder Woman" movie.
Jenkins is the third director that has emerged out of the DC universe after Zack Snyder and David Ayer. From DC's Superman and Batman to Marvel's The Avengers and the ever-sardonic Deadpool pop culture fans have just about seen it all.
The Israeli actress Gal Gadot is charismatic as Wonder Woman, playing her as a fierce warrior filled with empathy for those in danger, and this sets her apart from most other comic book heroes, who throw each other through skyscrapers with little regard for the human life inside. As a treat for some NYC fans, she, along with co-star Chris Pine and WW director Patty Jenkins, surprised an theater full of people who were about to watch Wonder Woman. "We can't say much, but." she explained.
"Wonder Woman" is rated PG-13 for sequences of violence and action and some suggestive content.
Diana decides to follow Steve back to Man's world to help him fight, but her ultimate goal is to find Ares, the god of war. Mankind may not always be good or right, but they're still worth fighting for. I think that there's a lot more to explore.
"I had a tent in the studio and every time we had a break I went training, so I was training all the time". With that said, how will she return when Wonder Woman joins the rest of the DC Comics crew in Justice League this November? Also see a real "wonder woman" in the film Megan Leavey, which opens this weekend starring Kate Mara and Rex the Dog.
