This film had been in development since 1996, when Ivan Reitman was hired to write and direct it. In January 2001, Silver Pictures approached Todd Alcott to write a Wonder Woman script. He was replaced in August 2003 with Laeta Kalogridis. Later in March 2005, Joss Whedon was hired to not only write but also direct the film, but in February 2007, he left due to creative differences. On November 24, 2014, Michelle MacLaren was confirmed as director, but she dropped out on March 13, 2015 due to creative differences. See more »
Steve Trevor spots a motorcycle to make a getaway on. The bike shown is a period-correct machine, probably a Douglas or a Triumph, with a drive belt made from leather links. The scene cuts to him riding through a forest on a much faster, much more modern machine with telescopic suspension forks - which weren't invented until 1935 by BMW for the R12. See more »
I used to want to save the world. This beautiful place. But I knew so little then. It is a land of beauty and wonder, worth cherishing in every way. But the closer you get, the more you see the great darkness simmering within. And mankind? Mankind is another story altogether.

I'm glad that a female fronted superhero movie actually did well at the box office, I'm appalled it took this long and was thrilled at seeing the figures.
Now when I first learned Gal Gadot was due to play Wonder Woman I wasn't sold, I just saw this tall skinny girl but was proven wrong in Batman vs Superman (2016) where I thought she did great. But a standalone movie? This was the ultimate test and though I think she did well I believe her proper debut failed on a lot of fronts.
A tweeked version of her origin story Wonder Woman is full of famous faces and fantastic choices for the most part, it had a tsunami of funding and a competent lead. So what went wrong?
The same as Batman vs Superman in my opinion, the DC Universe is simply not getting off to a good start. Flashy, cheesy and with some awful awful dialogue Wonder Woman failed to impress.
I'm not saying its a bad film, I'm just saying for every good scene there are 5 average ones and a couple of stinkers.
What took me back was the CGI, this is a AAA movie so why are there so many crappy looking shots? Truly unforgivable considering the budget, the script is weak, the story is predictable and the whole thing is somehow cheesier than the original television series (And that's saying something).
I went in expecting gold but came out with mildly tarnished bronze at best, I wanted to like this I really did but am so unimpressed I'm just going to assume Justice League will be seven shades of abyssmal.
Some choreography is off
Some bizzarely bad cgi
Very different from the original story
Barely connects to the universe they are trying to create
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
Each year judging by ratings people are easier and easier to please
I always consider Tom Cruise unconvincing in action scenes, he looks outstanding compared to David Thewlis
DC is not going to be catching up to Marvel, ever. This confirms it.
