    I think Joao and you use "dig deep" in different ways. What I think he means, and what I think Orlando is also doing, is bringing back up lots of obscure or seldom used characters or items from...

    Source for that?

    What I do know is that Rotten Tomatoes has had trouble with filtering out dishonest (as in didn't see the film) audience scores, but that's a wholly different thing.

    Or "arc" only applies to Willow, and not to Wonder Woman. Language, it is ambigious.

    Agree.

    I'd add a bit here on the relation to Marston. Keep the questions and the themes, but change the answers and the specific. Too much, I think modern Wonder Woman writers, when they do...

    I wish everyone here would read what MRP and Ascended has written in this thread. Even if they don't know the business side of comics, they do know economics, and has applied that knowledge well.

    I'm with Clark_Kent. A BoP sequel won't be a priority, but if the mutual finger-pointing at WB ends up pointing at marketing rather than production (and I'm firmly in the camp that poor marketing...

    What I believe is that DiDio's ideas on marketing and on narratives were near-constantly at odds with each other.

    I'm not sure your assumptions are correct.

    Sure, the MCU movies are largely as you describe (though you can find more than a few exceptions and MCU movies with more than a little thematic depth),...

    Can't say much about Dark Knight or Winter Soldier, but Mad Max: Fury Road is a great action piece. It is also thoroughly infused by feminist themes and theory, arguably on the same level as BoP.

    I think the answer to this question largely depends on how one views Catwoman in relation to Batman.

    If we take Catwoman as an antagonist with lots of sexual tension with the protagonist, then the...

    There is no conflict between the two. Great entertainment can provide both escapism and themes. In fact, some of the most classic art of all times was created by the fusion of popular entertainment...

    I don't want to turn this into another debate on Wilson's run, but I probably was less precise in what I meant there.

    What I think Wilson set out to do—and was only partially successful at—was to...

    Guessed correctly on the scene.

    And yes, I think the movie would have been much weaker without it. It was a central part of Black Canary's arc, and a really powerful and well-made scene in and of...

    I think the reason a lot of origin stories holds such a status is because (a) they are often the only character-changing story, (b) they are the only stories that are constistently reimagined and...

    The rule of thumb I had for earlier physical distribution channels was that the retailer got half of the cover price, the distributor half of that, and the publisher the rest. That also fits...

    Apart from what Tzigone said, I started up a whole thread on why the relation between Diana and the Amazons, and why it's hugely important to her character.

    Note also that I think Morrison didn't...

    The best thing with Earth One volume 2 was Doctor Psycho. Morrison really managed to create a Doctor Psycho who was creepy, realistic, and worked.

    Otherwise, if you didn't like volume 1, you won't...

    I'd recommend you go see the film, and read up a fair bit on feminist cultural theory. Or trust someone who has done both.

    Birds of Prey is the most feminist superhero movie ever made. It's up...

    Yes, they are great resources, if used right. If used uncritically, you only end up regurgitating *gaters. And those were out in force on Youtube about Birds of Prey.

    Comixology is owned by Amazon. Having a relationship with Amazon as a publisher is like being a tuna beside a Great White Shark.

    Superman Smashes the Klan got a rave reception, and that was pure Golden Age Superman with some added sensibilities.
