Warner Bros has just revealed, as part of its Comic-Con panel, the new look for Wonder Woman. It's first look at Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in the upcoming Batman vs Superman movie.
Yeah, I know she looks good and pretty tough and all that, but this ain't Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman has red, white, and blue on her costume and is basically a female version of Captain America, but no it's silly to be patriotic these days. It's not silly to have dudes flying around in capes, but heaven help us if we have characters running around with the American flag on their costume. Oh, well we can send soldiers to die for old glory over seas, but we can't have superheroes wear red, white, and blue, mainly of course because that might offend other countries. America is the only country where the citizens aren't allowed to be proud.
And then there's those young fans that think everything has to be dark and serious. Hellooooo, it's superheroes. If you can't have fun with them, then what's the friggin point.
I'm not as mad as I might sound, I just needed to get a few points off my chest.
Who knows maybe, just maybe this is how she looks at first and by the end of the movies she'll at least have the familiar colors even if she doesn't have any flag like design on it. And no I don't care if it makes sense or not for an Amazon to be wearing a flag for a costume. Nobody batted an eye for over 7 decades. Just because we got a communist for a president now doesn't mean we have to stop being patriotic.
Feels good to complain sometimes. That's one of those things guaranteed in our constitution.
What do you all think? Does she look good to you? Miss the old costume like me?
