I went to see Wonder Woman today. It's the first comic-to-movie adaptation I've allowed myself to see in 11 years (& that one was X-men: The Last Stand). I would NOT have gone to see this film had it not been for the hearty endorsement by Lynda Carter who, for my generation, & several others, IS Wonder Woman. It was also helpful to me to know that the studio DID reach out to LC about playing Hypolytta first, & that she wasn't overlooked. LC could not commit to the film b/c of scheduling conflicts. I grew up watching her, wanting to BE her, & I also read WW during the glorious post-crisis era, under the team of Karen Berger, & George Perez. I went in w/ VERY low expectations, & while I was disappointed to see that this movie was heavily influenced by the "New 52" continuity, I DID see some subtle nods to the post-crisis WW as well, & i suspect that other long time readers of the WW comic picked up on them as well. The fact that this film was directed by a woman was also a selling point. Bringing Wonder Woman to the big screen required someone who was aware of the source material & was NOT going to pull a "Bryan Singer." Patty Jenkins clearly GOT IT when it comes to WW's portrayal, how she would behave, would motivates her, as well as the presentation of power of the amazons. & I'll give credit to Gal Gadot. For the longest time, I was not convinced she could pull this role off, but she did it, & very well. Chris Pine as Steve Trevor?? OVERALL, I can say that this movie was not bad!
