Here’s Why ‘Batman v Superman’ Is The Dawn Of Wonder Woman

“I Don’t Think You’ve Ever Known A (Wonder) Woman Like Me.”

There was a wonderful moment during the press screening of “Batman v Superman” when the entire theatere clapped for Wonder Woman as she appears in full costume. The reaction to her character introduction was unlike anything I’ve seen before. Audiences have seen female superheroes but there has never been anyone like this. There was an aura around the character before the premiere and the hype slowly rose throughout the film.

But how did the warrior walk away from the film as one of its biggest stars?

Simple; the creators handled her character correctly. One of the biggest observations I’ve taken away from the first two movies in the DC Extended Universe are women will be playing a front and center role in all of the action. Lois Lane played a massive part in both “Man Of Steel” and “Batman v Superman“, Clark Kent’s mother Martha is a powerful role in his life, and now Wonder Woman joins them as another strong female & the most powerful hero.

Maybe it was her theme song produced by Hans Zimmer & Junkie XL or maybe it was how she one upped Bruce Wayne in her first scene but Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman stole the entire show. Even after the “Dawn Of Justice” screenings, the first promotional image of the women of Themyscira was met with more praise than the movie. I also gushed about her performance in the Monkey Fighting Robots podcast following the release.

Diana Prince, also known as Wonder Woman, found herself playing a big part throughout the film. When she wasn’t joining the other heroes in a fight against Doomsday, she was appearing at fundraisers or at an auction. Those two events led to her having some interesting interactions with Bruce Wayne. While Batman tries to compare her to other women he has met before, she informs him that he has NEVER met anyone quite like her. Moments like that had the fans foaming out the mouth as Gadot effortlessly brings sass & grace to Wonder Woman.

The future looks bright for the Themysciran. Next year will bring possibly the biggest female superhero movie to the big screen and if “Dawn Of Justice” was anything to go by, Wonder Woman will be playing an important role in the creation of The Justice League for their 2017 film.

I believe that “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice” helped solidify the public’s interest in the solo Wonder Woman project. Will the 2017’s “Wonder Woman” be the first watchable female superhero film? After upsetting blunders like DC’sSupergirl” from 1984 & Marvel’s “Elektra” in 2005, we need our favorite Amazonian demigoddess to show us who runs the world!

DC Comics & Warner Brother’s “Wonder Woman” is currently filming, directed by Patty Jenkins and stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, and Connie Nielsen. They are aiming for a June 23, 2017 release date.
