When I was a little girl, my grandfather used to take care of my sister and I once a week during the summers. He was a college anatomy, biology and zoology professor, so his ideas of play dates involved trips to the Natural History Museum, the La Brea Tar Pits, the California Science Center or the Botanical Gardens. And I LOVED it. I was already a curious kid, but it was these trips and my family’s encouragement to learn and explore that solidified my path as a lifelong learner. My mom recently told me that she never scolded me about all the time I spent indoors on the computer or playing video games or reading because she knew that technology was the future, and could be a viable career choice for me. I grew up wanting to be an astronaut or a scientist—for the longest time I bounced between archaeologist and paleontologist. Of course, as I grew older, my path changed (I still consider being a writer as someone who wants to discover new things), but my love for science and technology has never faded.
DC Comics has faced a lot of backlash recently. They got a lot of heat for asking potential artists to draw Harley Quinn naked in the bathtub while in the process of trying to commit suicide, the team working on Batwoman quit amid claims that DC consistently changed or blocked already approved story lines (such as allowing her to marry her fiancé), and a lot of people are wondering about why they seem so reluctant to make a Wonder Woman movie. Judging by the reaction from the Amazonian’s legion of loyal fans and admirers fans, a Wonder Woman film seems like a no brainer.
Vanderbilt is fierce as Diana of Themyscira as she blocks bullets, throws spears and kicks human and creature asses alike. The Amazons are ethereal and intense as they stare down the threat to their homeland. It’s an atmospheric and moving interpretation of a realistic Wonder Woman and DC should probably be taking notes (including tapping these ladies for a feature film).
Enjoy and amazing job to everyone involved with the film!
