On June 3, 2017 Warner Brothers and DC Comics brings the much anticipated film "Wonder Woman" to the big screen. From the iconic role with Lynda Carter on TV and not to the latest, Gal Gadot, this film is so exciting to women because the character is so icon in a sea of comic book characters that are mostly men.
Comic book fans and lovers of animation know, that before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise.
In this 2017 version of the movie the online description states that Diana meets an American pilot who tells her about the massive conflict that's raging in the outside world. Convinced that she can stop the threat, Diana leaves her home for the first time. Fighting alongside men in a war to end all wars, she finally discovers her full powers and true destiny.
As a young girl growing up in the 70s, I started to realize early how important is was to have women heroes on TV. The feminist movement of the 60s and 70s were still fresh on people's mind and more women were going to work. Feminism was overall a good thing. Women working and being empower was something that could benefit the entire community.
When the show Wonder Woman came on Saturday morning TV as part of the Justice League, then on TV at night as a live action hero, as a kid I began to see so many opportunities for women. Now in 2017, although there are more women in power than ever, it is still important nor for young girls and women to see women heroes.
When I heard that DC Comics was bringing Wonder Woman to the big screen, I was excited. I recently had the pleasure of attending a screening and the only thing I am at liberty to say is that it is an excellent movie and a must see for all. Seeing a powerful and strong woman on the big screen really is what "Wonder Woman" means to me.
