    Weeeelll...they were sort of stuck.

    Vikings was a History channel series in which all of the characters were actually real people.

    Ragnar did indeed die in a snake pit, and so he was doomed...

    I apologize and mispoke.

    First black female anchor of a *cable* news show. I meant no disrespect to the late, great Gwen Ifill.

    I'm going with 'hell no' :)

    I think the only reason we're seeing him in the comic at the moment is *because* he's in the movie. If everything hadn't been delayed, the movie would have been out in...

    Hard to give a solid review of a person's performance based on a trailer or two. Seeing the movie really helps.

    The key thing, however, is that you started with:

    "Its one of the factors that...

    I hadn't heard any of the scuttlebutt before we went to see it, and we enjoyed it. Nothing struck me as being 'woke' or 'in your face'.

    That is a very broad and very inaccurate generalization.

    *You* might not like women taking on traditionally male roles, but there are plenty of guys who do.

    Also, 'traditional' is not an excuse...

    I quite literally groaned and facepalmed in the theater when it happened. It didn't help that they decided to kill off the only female Avenger earlier in the movie. I thought that split second was...

    And therein lies part of the problem.

    Badass action hero lines = macho instead of just badass hero.

    And token 'badass' women have been appearing in movies for years, as if 'badass' is the only...

    Now *that* was insulting to women.

    We spend the vast majority of the movie watching the men discuss and debate, plan and solve problems, and then women are supposed to be happy that we got a 2...

    I have never heard triple. If that's the case, Iron Man 2 barely eked out a profit, and Thor and Captain America were flops.

    Thor - cost $150,000,000 x 3 = $450,000,000. Box Office take -...

    I forgot to add my cult favorite - Knight Riders. Cheesy but fun Ed Harris film with a guest appearance from Stephen King :)

    56% of Wonder Woman's audience was female, so it wasn't relying upon the male demo for action movies.

    Btw, your point is rather confusing - you want to know why men won't go see female led movies,...

    Might have something to do with the fact that they didn't try with female characters after Supergirl and Catwoman.

    There was, if memory serves, a 20 year gap between SG and CW, and a 15 year gap...

    Except this included any other Wonder Woman movies, and canned the Batgirl that was in the works.

    Btw, out of 25 DVD, Wonder Woman ranked 8th in sales. Hardly a flop, yet it was enough to put the...

    Not denying that they were flops, they just aren't listed in the Top 100 flops of all time according to Wikipedia. There are other lists I found that were very similar.

    I'm sure there are plenty...

    There are far more male-led action films than female led, so the 'bombs' from the female led ones are more obvious.

    Also, executives can suck. Take, for example, the Wonder Woman DVD movie. It...

    Let's nudge this back on track, please. Ivy and Batman discussions should be for another forum.

    Thanks!

    You are correct. I don't, and neither do you. DC defines it.

    They have a 'council of immortals,' for example. DC therefore has defined in clear terms that there are more immortals than just the...

    So you're unhappy that Wonder woman is the 'unbeatable undefeated all-powerful being" who stomped....an unbeatable, undefeated, all-powerful being?

    This is the same Wonder Woman, btw, who nearly...

    Not sure if this counts, but Sneakers is one of my all-time favorite movies that it seems not many people have heard of.

    Robert Redford, Sidney Poitier, Dan Akroyd, David Straithern and River...

    Let me put this simply.

    The lasso is, by definition of DC Comics, unbreakable.

    Everything in comics is unbreakable/invulnerable/undefeatable until they are broken/injured/defeated.

    It's a...
