I don't think so. Cameron's got a point.

But Jenkins's response is also correct. Can beautiful women not also be strong and decisive and heroic? Must feminism exterminate all appreciation of beauty to remain pure? Must all feminist heroes be dark and gritty and damaged? Nope.


I would have to say Linda Carter as WW looked more like a stripper then Gal's did. Yet they both betrayed
strong women.

Did you mean "portrayed?"

And, yes, the Linda Carter WW did look more like a stripper than a fighter. Muting the colors and removing the stars was a good idea.

Sorry yes long day. I heard that some people complained that WW wasn't an American and that upset them of course they are remembering the Tv show. Those people know nothing of the comic.

No wonder Kathryn Bigelow divorced him.

Maybe he said something mean about your post #655 and decided to renig on it.

Also, perhaps that's where I draw the line. Because as much as I like Wonder Woman... let's not surpass an Avengers movie.

I fully expect MCU fanboys to sob crocodile tears when Wonder Woman's domestic gross passes those of CA:CW (a certainty) and IM3 (less likely, but probably will happen).

Personally I liked Wonder Woman better then any Avenger movie as of yet. I still feel like that it's missing something, What? I'm not sure of.
