    Default Wonder Woman Movie Part 2

    Since larger, older threads contributed to the forum issues of the past few weeks, I'm rebooting this one, so please start anew!! This combines the original 'Spoiler' (I think we're past spoiling!) and 'Gal Gadot in Wonder Woman' threads.

    I think we've probably repeated ourselves endlessly already.

    I loved the movie. My one nitpick was that she couldn't fly by the end due to having to stay in continuity with BvS.

    I loved the setting. I get why they went with WWI instead of II to avoid the uninitiated claiming it was a ripoff of Captain America. I think it worked beautifully which is not to claim no flaws but I think it did a great job of keeping the spirit of WW while giving a partly new story.

    I'm not as crazy about the 2nd one being set in the 1980s and, ironically, it's because the 1980s are within living adult memory for me and I don't see the 80s as an era that fascinates me. Now WW in the 1950s with all that was going on then or better the 1960s (although the latter is within living memory) could be really interesting. Unfortunately, part of what would make it interesting would be if they could break from future continuity and let her become publicly known sooner.
    His name is CAPTAIN MARVEL.

    I'm looking forward to WW84 and I love me some 80's but I saw a comment on another forum where someone said did WB missed the boat for a great marketing name for Wonder Woman 2 if set in World War II as WW2?

    Hey! This is about the 2017 movie, not the 2019 one!

    One thing I just realised when thinking about Chief/Napi and Eugene Brave Rock, and my hope that he will appear in the next movie, is that his role will be hard to reprise. Napi is an inverted Magical Negro (TVTropes link). He isn't there to help Diana become a better person or feel better about herself, and his tale is fundamentally unsettling for her worldview. But it is told not because he thinks Diana needs to hear it, but because she asks, and it is told entirely from his point of view. The tale does play a role in Diana's coming of age story, but it is just one of several interlocking pieces that Diana integrates over time.

    I strongly disagree with this assesment.

    He was absolutely there to help Diana become a better person, or at least to understand humanity better and discover that she loves them. All the Oddfellows served this purpose in the plot.

    She learned not to judge people at face value - Sami, Charlie and Napi were all very different than what she initially assumed.
