Sometimes I feel like I’m too quick to complain about media, but then I remember
so basically, fuck that.
#so fucking true #it also drives me crazy that when i raise this point with people #their reaction tends to be along the lines of ‘yeah but wonder woman’s not on the same level as batman and superman’ #without knowing anything about wonder woman beyond the bathing suit and the bracelets and the lasso #they dismiss her as being silly and cartoonish and not movie material #and leaving aside the fact that dc explicitly puts wondy on superman and batman’s level by labelling them ‘the trinity’ #if you knew nothing about comics #and the dominant media image of batman came from the 1960s tv show #how seriously would you take a billionaire who dresses up like a bat to fight crime? #the problem isn’t that wonder woman is less marketable as a film #it’s that she hasn’t been given a chance #certainly not in the way supes and bats have #and while a part of me would prefer no wondy movie at all to a total bomb of a movie #(particularly when i happen to recall that horrific unaired david e. kelley pilot) #another part of me feels like going to see a big-budget wonder woman film and being disappointed #is something of a step up from no movie at all #which is more or less where we are now
Don’t forget Wonder Woman’s DTV animated film is the third highest grossing DC Animated Original Movie EVER!
