This was very cool, right up to the very end, when Wonder Woman speaks. Not only is the voice wimpy, I mean, she sounds like a wuss, what she says is lame. Huh. But maybe the film will still be worth seeing. Action speaks louder than words. At least I sincerely hope so.
And here’s a ten-minute ‘making of’ video that leaves out all the juicy background on William Moulton Marston. Wikipedia leaves a lot of it out, too, but anyone who knows the comic knows about the serious attention to bondage…

Wonder Woman! Terrific! I was born ib 1949, and girls didn’t have very many heroes. I read every Wonder Woman comic I could get my hands on. They were ten cents. In sixth grade I found and read a book on Greek mythology. The story of the amazons fascinated me- women who ran their whole world without men. Despite the fact that she never worked outside the home, I thought of my mother as an amazon. She kept the family together, she handled all the family trouble, she read aloud to me and my sister every single day. She was my hero. Wimpy voice or not, I’ll watch the movie.
I loved Greek and Roman mythology when I was little (I didn’t differentiate). But then it gradually dawned on me that women always got shafted and the bloom was off the rose.>>But then, oh, Xena came along, and with that opening “In a time of ancient gods, warlords, and kings, A land in turmoil cried out for a hero. She was Xena, a mighty princess, forged in the heat of battle…” I was lost. Back in a non-standard ‘historical’ Greece and just fucking lost. Sigh.>>But, yeah, voice or not, I’ll watch Wonder Woman.
I had no idea it was going to be a cartoon. I guess I just assumed it would be live-action.
I’m sure if America is ready for a live action Woman Woman. Cartoons, after all, are not real, you don’t have to accept the notions presented as a possibility. But a real live woman– The time has not yet come (unless, of course, she falls in love with a boy and sacrifices her kick-arseness in the name of Tru Lurve, barf).
I think there is a live action Wonder Woman movie in the works. Joss Whedon was writing the script and then either left the project or got kicked out. Not sure what the status of it is now.
As far as I know, the live action WW film is dead in the water. I imagine that one day it’ll be revived, these things often are, but it’ll be a while, and they’ll have to get a completely new script.
