Kill Bill, Alien, Lara Croft, Underworld, Salt even sigh... Charlie's Angels etc. All successful.
I used that example to show there is interest in this movie. I'm not saying this is why people will watch it .
Popular superhero movies have tanked yeah..ok ? Probably because they were bad. I could say popular superhero movies have been successful so your argument is flawed lol.
Yep that's exactly what I said..not really. Warner have 40 wha? wow, but they still have flops don't they. Jack the giant slayer, Burt Wonderstone and Bullet to the head all flopped in the same year. Like I said unless Warner have a magic crystal ball, they don't 100 % know what movie will succeed and what won't.
Oh no I understand the caution too, it's risky but so was Avengers Thor and Iron man.
His argument is silly. Wonder Woman isn´t just any female hero… A risky female lead movie would be something like Mz. Marvel. WW is less risky because of the times and the trends in movies now, being comic superhero movies have made up several of the top grossing movies of all time, 2. There´s interest in WW movie because of the Justice League movie, so she isn´t going it alone, people are interested in a shared DC universe in which WW is one of the most, if not THE central character outside Supes and Bats, 3 she is the most famous female superheroine in the patheon of superheroes. Yes female lead superhero movies may well be risky, but WW is less of a risk for obvious reasons. Again I say the nail in the coffin for a WW movie is taking to long to do it so people lose interest and second it being bad.
I don´t think @fallschirmjager: argument applies given the context in which we are asking for this movie, and, the times.
I admit, 10 years ago if I was a studio exec being completely objective I would not green light a wonder woman movie. post Avengers I would have greenlit it yesterday, if not the day before. I don´t see a good Wonder Woman movie as even a risk, I believe its almost 90% guaranteed to do good business, especially if connected to a future Justice League project.
Pretty girl but she's not Wonder Woman pretty. This really hurts my faith in Snyder. Hopefully they recast for JL.
are you serious?
That's like utterly the least important thing about casting not to mention completely subjective.
Not for a character who's "beautiful as Aphrodite". It's subjective as hell yes, definitely. Compare pictures of Cavil to Superman. Compare pictures of Affleck to Bruce. They are extremely close and both of those men are good looking. Now compare pictures of Gadot to Wonder Woman. She is pretty yes but not the kind of pretty she should be. Everyone is focusing on her body which I just don't care about. People can work out right. It's her eyes. They are cold and dark. There is no love in there. She has the appearance of a villain. Would have made a pretty decent Cheetah.
Interesting point, I hope they aren´t going Xena warrior route, with her being some badass warrior, without the kindness and elegance needed for the character. I see WW as more Princess, elegant, priviliged but deeply kind of heart, its just she´s been trained from a young age by the finest warrior to fight like a badass. I don´t really see the warrior training informing her character more than her just being capable and strong willed.
@hastalavista: Yeah I just saw it, Crazy. Do you think this has anything to do with Max landis "Chronicle" scribe pitching WB´s a wonder woman movie. Because that worries me. Also I don´t want Snyder having anything to do with this film. I mean that is if they are giving her a solo film. Fingers Crossed.
@hastalavista: just want to test the tone. this scene has been changed dramatically, so it kind of appears in the script, but I wanted to really know what people thought of Ares. How he´s portrayed. Bakunin and Ares are the same person if you didn´t realize by the way. :)
Forgive me for being technical, but if Diana's power is largely borrowed from the earth, will she be less powerful when she leaves the planet?
No she won´t. To be honest I didn´t really think too much about it because for the sake of this story she isn´t really leaving the Earth. Most her adventures take place right here on Earth. However, I do think she can call on strength from any Earth like planet. Its not so much what planet she´s on as opposed to the Earth from which her body came symbolically with the whole "Clay" origin.
I realized I put an old version up. I was reading through this and I realized its one that is unedited. I´m now looking for the new version, I have so many copies of this thing now I get confused.
