I saw Wonder Woman on Monday. IT WAS INCREDIBLE.

What I know about Wonder Woman comes primarily from the animated Justice League series and vague comic book osmosis I absorbed from the internet. I will admit that the character of Wonder Woman never interested me as far as the animated series was concerned. She seemed so self-assured and flawless (though I know this is far from the case) that it didn't catch my attention as a viewer. However, I do remember reading the comic 52 and noting that while Supes and Bats got these long arcs of character development to deal with their respective demons, Diana is barely in it.

If Wonder Woman is one of the powerhouses of DC, why did it take twenty years for her movie to be developed? (The funny answer is because of the patriarchy. But it's also the not funny answer.)

If I had to give one line of review for this film, it would be that SEEING WONDER WOMAN BRAWLING WITH TANKS AND THROWING SOLDIERS AROUND GIVES ME LIFE. If I could watch an extended version of the No Man's Land scene for two hours, you bet I would.
