Director: 'Wonder Woman' a 'hero' for all

Wonder Woman

However, amidst discussion of Wonder Woman - now portrayed on the big screen by Gal Gadot - as a role model for girls, Zehner referenced the movie's male lead, Steve Trevor (played by Chris Pine), and said he teaches young men that being vulnerable is being strong. Steve is so deep in the mythology that after some debate we found that just like Wonder Woman needs Steve, we needed Steve too. And yet, for some reason, it appears that Warner Bros. didn't have director Patty Jenkins sign a contract that included an option for a Wonder Woman sequel.


The remainder of "Wonder Woman" deals with Diana's journey from warrior princess to war hero as she returns to the front with Trevor to join his rag-tag band of special operatives who will lead her to Ares, the God of War, whose destruction - she believes - will bring an end to all conflict. "Wonder Woman" also broke the record for the most successful opening weekend for a movie directed by a woman. We need to be able to look at Wonder Woman through the eyes of the audience. Jenkins was only signed for one film, but that means if Jenkins' representatives wanted, they could force Warner Bros.to pay millions of dollars more to keep her on board. He also has to be changed by Wonder Woman. They can have love, they can have vulnerability, they can have complexity. ". We have different talents as men and women, but they're equally important and we're both equally capable". A giant spirit who is the kind of man one aspires to be, but isn't afraid to be complex and leave room for and even compliment another. And she wins. It's great cinema no matter the genre, and the appropriate level of drama is definitely achieved (Jenkins helmed the Oscar-winning "Monster" in 2003), but unlike its popcorn movie peers, the gravity of what we've seen lingers long after the credits roll.
