After many a failed attempt in recent years to revitalize the Wonder Woman storyline in a live-action telling, it seems that Warner Brothers has finally gotten it right with Gal Gadot in the lead. Learning from the Palicki crash and burn, the film is keeping the storyline classic, though they've done a major overhaul on her outfit. The new look was inspired by Greek armor and has drawn many comparisons to fictional warrior princess Xena.
As for the storyline, you better believe that it isn't conforming to gender norms in traditional superhero tales.
"We were shooting on a beach in Italy with Robin Wright and Connie Nielsen, just beautiful women. All of the husbands would show up with the kids to support their wives. I thought it was this awesome flip of the script," film co-star Chris Pine explained. "All the husbands sitting behind the monitors and playing with the kids."
Gadot echoed those sentiments, saying it was the women who were shooting the battle scenes in Wonder Woman.
