But I am a long-time lover of David Lean and Sergio Leone, so I'm a sucker for pretty landscapes. DCEU seems to like them as well, and they enjoy a richer color palette than Marvel has so far. Even when Marvel had the chance to do some great landscapes (like the first Captain America movie), they opted for sets and CGI instead. It's a far inferior product when it comes to cinematography. Even with TV, the Marvel shows on Netflix are doing a better job with filming NYC than any of the movies have done so far.
That's true but as I mentioned, it isn't always an aspect the general public movie goers really pay attention to. I do but that's because my favorite movies growing up were the Star Wars movies and Jurassic Park.

I think DC did an outstanding job choosing Gadot for WW. She's young enough to play an immortal being so she as the ability to for some years to come. At this point in the DC world she's their saving grace.

Next month is my wife's birthday she is VERY disappointed that Wonder Women doesn't come out until next year. I think we're long overdue for a female super hero movie, but to be honest I can't think of another female hero who had the draw that WW does. I think it's going to do VERY well at the box office!

There isn't one, at this time. And I think so, too!

It looks great. The Justice league trailer looks great also.

Even in the Marvel universe I can't think of one.

There isn't one. Wonder Woman is THE iconic super heroine.

I certainly think Marvel has more interesting super heroines, but not a one of them has the instant recognition of Wonder Woman. And even Marvel's best super heroines (Invisible Woman, Jean Grey, Shadowcat) are part of teams dominated by men.

Marvel recently announced they are doing a Captain Marvel movie. But if you tell that to the average movie-goer, I can guarantee you the response is going to be, "Who is Captain Marvel?"

I always liked Scarlet Witch. Still surprised she turned up on film!

Wonder Woman has a richer history and a much more extensive power set than any of those characters, though. If they synthesize the Pérez reboot and New 52 origins, we should get plenty on our plates.

That's why they're dragging their feet. They can't make a Spider-Woman or She-Hulk movie, and as you said, the other ladies are currently under house arrest at Fox.

My guess is Marvel's been waiting for Wonder Woman to touch down, so they can go "Great! Check out our own movie featuring a heroine!"

Me too. Myself, I was severely disappointed in all onscreen versions of the Invisible Woman. She is the First Lady of Marvel. She is the heart of Marvel's oldest team. And she is the most powerful member of the team (a fact even Doctor Doom acknowledged). But in every movie she sits in the passenger seat. But to be fair, none of the FF movies have been very good. The last one was downright bad.

That, and she is the original super heroine. She was the first, she has been around for decades, unlike so many other super heroines she isn't simply a "woman" version of a pre-existing super hero, and she has been a feminist icon since at least the '70s. You'd be hard pressed to find a person in the industrialized world who doesn't know who Wonder Woman is.

May be. Although I suspect it's at least partly because Captain Marvel doesn't have the rich history and great storylines that so many of the other characters do. Even Marvel seems confused, since every time I turn around, someone new is Captain Marvel. I'd have to read the Wikipedia page to even figure out who she is these days. I'm assuming it's the blonde woman, since they just cast Brie Larson to play her. But who knows?
