Wonder Woman: Which emblematic character inspired Patty Jenkins for Steve Trevor?

The jury's still out on whether Patty Jenkins' solo movie will climb higher still, but at the very least, all signs now point to DC and Warner Bros. kicking on with Wonder Woman 2 in the not-so-distant future. This might say more about me than it does about this mediocre film that only I am courageous enough to critique, but Gal Gadot: I'll give you a solid "B+". "Captain Marvel", another female superhero film due in 2019, will be co-directed by a woman, Anna Boden, with her collaborator Ryan Fleck. Jenkins has spent most of her career in television and has a single previous feature to her credit - the 2003 drama "Monster", which earned an acting Oscar for Charlize Theron. She also emphasizes the importance of a production staff comprised of predominately of women, which is rare in Hollywood.

The fourth installment in the shared universe which began in 2013 with Superman reboot Man of Steel, Wonder Woman is an origin story.

Keri Russell's take on the iconic superhero was a remarkable one, with her voice fitting perfectly for the character and the same strength she shows off as Elizabeth Jennings on The Americans coming through in her vocal performance. Since we love Indiana Jones, we should melt under the spell of Steve Trevor whose secrets are revealed in Wonder Woman! It's a shame that Gal Gadot has to miss out on the opportunity to be amusing - there's a sparkle in her eye that says she'd have had great comic timing. Check out some of her best quotes on the role below. It's a sturdy origin story, this education of Miss Diana Prince, establishing her as a compassionate badass who consistently proves her bravery, strength and commitment to justice ("I am willing to fight for those who can not fight for themselves"). "It's very easy to relate to her". And then she has the powers of a goddess. "But until that happens, she would be right there fighting". "I really want you all to embrace this".

Gal Gadot (as Wonder Woman): "What is your mission?" "It isn't stupid, it's magical".

Gal Gadot plays the comic-book super hero "Wonder Woman".

Still, her male counterparts have hogged the big-screen glory. I always like how these extra scenes add a little deeper understanding of the character or what we can expect in the future.

Fans have been waiting for decades for a successful female superhero movie, which would counteract outdated industry reservations about the ability of women to carry blockbusters (a notion already shattered by Jennifer Lawrence in "The Hunger Games"). For Gadot, this movie is a chance to give young girls someone strong to aspire to.
