Chris, 36, also admitted he didn’t find his job in “Wonder Woman” all that hard, as his main task was “falling in love” with Gal Gadot, who stars as the Amazonian warrior. Makeup is great! But, as always, variety is the spice of life: Media should show us women who wear makeup and women who don’t, seeing as that’s how the real world is and all.
In that landscape, “Wonder Woman” director Patty Jenkins could take over the title of biggest all-time three-day domestic opening for a female director if she can pass Sam Taylor-Johnson’s .1 million opening for 2015’s “Fifty Shades of Grey”. It was a huge gamble on the part of Warner Bros.to get Jenkins as the director for the first woman-centric movie based on a comic book. Hilarity ensues again when she asks him, “Do you not sleep with women?” when he makes place for her to rest but chooses to sit some distance away for the sake of propriety. The company wrote on its blog “that girls are less likely than boys to be encouraged to pursue computer science and only 22 percent of gaming developers are women”.

A big box-office take for “Wonder Woman” could also lead studios to make comic book movies, one of the most popular genres in Hollywood and one dominated by men, more inclusive. It is her belief that Ares, the god of war, is pushing the war and behind the violence in men’s hearts. The characters – particularly Gal Gadot’s Diana, the Amazonian princess who becomes Wonder Woman, and Chris Pine’s American spy Steve Trevor – have exceptional chemistry and, for the first time in DC’s Justice League-era film universe, we get emotionally invested in our heroes’ journey. “We are a continuation of a vision and a dream of a great character”. She is a relatable character who speaks about 100 languages!
Wonder Woman now has a 93% Fresh rating at Rotten Tomatoes with 208 positive reviews and only 15 negative. Until then, Jenkins told THR that she might direct a limited TV series, potentially starring Steve Trevor actor Chris Pine. In a more peculiar encounter earlier on, Diana walks in on Steve just as he is emerging from a bath. Wonder Woman’s mission could be a re-written version of Superman’s, “truth, justice, – and an end to war”. I felt like the destructive quality that comes from oh, everybody knows, when you’re making something out of nothing and it was hurtful to a production to make it seem like something is true but what are you going to do? “Wonder Woman” evokes not only the spirit of Richard Donner’s “Superman”, but also Joe Johnston’s “Captain America: The First Avenger”, while still being its own thing.
In this role of a lifetime, Gal Gadot truly is a wonder.
