Hey, at least it was a Superhero movie where the Hero was a woman, and the male Brit character was relegated to being her love interest. Interesting to see the roles reversed like that; the 007 Male character reduced to being a supporting character to the star of the Movie.

I thought this was about time. I also thought you were a hit hard on the Black Amazon warrior: I didn’t see her as masculine, just as Strong, Skilled and Powerful: why do those attributes make her “Masculine”?

“I winced when a black Amazon warrior appeared on screen in the first 15 minutes of Wonder Woman, portrayed as a masculine brute while her white counterparts all had distinctive hourglass figures with perky, perfectly round breasts.”

I didn’t notice any particular lack of breasts on the black woman, but perhaps I wasn’t looking so hard to be offended on her behalf. She looked like she could take care of herself to me.
