Right.
A good looking woman showing skin is all it takes for a film to be popular. That's why Barb Wire, Catwoman, and Elektra all grossed 800 million and became cultural phenoms.






Oh, wait...

Ant-Man was far more original than this crapfest. Gal was great as Wonder Woman but that was it.

No such thing as an "original comic book film." They are based on pre-existing properties and they all follow the same three-act structure and story beats in regards (among other things) the hero discovering their powers, the villain becoming villanous, and the last-act CGI-heavy final battle to save the world.

I loved both Ant-Man and Wonder Woman, but nope..."original" is a fallacy when it comes to CBMs.

Perhaps but I've never seen a movie that is as much of a ripoff to another movie as Wonder Woman was to Captain America: The First Avenger. It was disgusting to see how close it was.

You've been a comic book fan long enough to have seen that play out time and time again. No point having wadded panties over the same ol' same ol'.

I get it everyone is butthurt when I say I didn't like Wonder Woman because it was a ripoff of Captain America. I'm sorry you can't let me have it. The only way it would have been worse was a World War 2 timing.

Nobody is "butthurt." The thing is, you have an issue with two characters created during wartime whose initial stories were written during wartime.

For Wonder Woman, they engineered the story to commence during WWI, not WWII. That's a huge difference, right off the bat.

Diana was born to a world of warriors to be a warrior ever since she was a little girl. That's not the lifestyle Steve Rogers grew up in.

Diana accompanied a mortal man to our world to track down and kill Ares. Steve Rogers didn't enlist to fight the Red Skull. He submitted to the Super Soldier program so he could be chemically transformed into the soldier he felt he was inside. Diana wasn't transformed into anything. Her powers were dormant.

Wonder Woman the movie is largely derived from George Perez's 1987 reboot. You may want to go back and read it if you honestly think the movie is a ginormous ripoff.

Aaa... aaa... aaa... choooo! (mk must have not understood the second half of post #624. )

Also, mk never did answer my question as to if he thinks that DC and Warner Bros. should have entirely changed the premise of Wonder Woman.
