Joss Whedon and the Terrible, Horrible, No-Good, Very Bad Script: A Wonder Woman Story

As audiences begged for the iconic superheroine to hit the big screen, and Whedon's take was rejected, that rejected script became a symbol of Everything That's Wrong with Hollywood. It became a symbol of an All Boys' Club trying to keep superhero movies For Men Only. Turns out? That script was just bad. And also hella sexist.

“Boys Can Be Wonder Woman, Too!”: Kids (and Their Parents) Talk About Their Favorite Amazon

Because boys can look up to her, too!

The Steve Trevor Factor: Wonder Woman Gives Us a Template for What Gender Equality Can Look Like

Wonder Woman‘s Best Battle Scene Almost Didn’t Make the Cut … Because Execs Didn’t Get It

Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman did an amazing job at balancing huge action set-pieces with earnest heart and emotion without being cheesy or ironic. One of the clearest examples of this was the moment in which Diana first dons her 'Wonder Woman' armor. It's a scene that's already iconic, and the film just came out. Hard to believe that this entire sequence almost didn't make the film! **SPOILERS IF YOU HAVEN'T YET SEEN THE FILM**

It’s Beyond Time to End The Double Standard That Lets Anyone Call Patty Jenkins a “Gamble”

Two days before 'Wonder Woman' opens, it already has a 95% percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, making it the highest-rated superhero movie since The Dark Knight came out nearly a decade ago. The movie has been selling out screenings, and its director, Patty Jenkins, has been working in Hollywood for 15 years. So why can't Hollywood take this movie or the woman making it seriously?

We've been talking a lot about Wonder Woman in the lead-up to her first-ever live-action feature film, which comes out in less than a month. While the marketing for Wonder Woman has been a mixed bag (and hasn't featured much of Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot, because she's just given birth to her second child and is spending time with her family right now), there's one thing on which I think we can all agree. The final trailer is awesome as hell! Check it out after the jump!
