In the comics, Wonder Woman got the alias Diana Prince during World War II from a U.S. Army nurse who was very similar in appearance to her and from whom she bought her credentials and name. In this movie, while she is posing as Steve Trevor's secretary, he interrupts her introduction of "I am Diana, Princess of..." and re-names her as "Prince. Diana Prince". See more »

The closing logo combo varies:
In the original theatrical release, the Atlas Entertainment, Cruel & Unusual Films and Warner Bros. Pictures logos is shown with the closing theme ending over it.
In the Chinese theatrical release and worldwide home media prints, with a slight change in the "in association with" credit, the logos for Tencent Pictures and Wanda Pictures is added in-between the C&UF and WBP logos, making the WBP logo silent.
Very linear, DC got it right, a female strong hero on the spotlight, she's Wonder Woman
Reading the reviews here. Either they are bowing down to the movie or just hating blindly. Not sure how many have actually seen it. Very good movie after all the disappointment from the past DCEU movies.
Seeing all the trailers and featurettes, very little was left for imagination, but those didn't disappoint. The movie is about the journey of a demigod from Themyscira, where it's all bright and shiny to the real world, which is torn by war, greed, hatred and darkness. Diana walks in as the light.
Getting her influence from Donner, Patty Jenkins got it right. What it means to be a hero, what does it mean to inspire..and the quest for the Amazon beauty to become the light in the darkness. Strength, sorrow, motivation, humanity, hope and loss forges the path to be the ultimate hero she's meant to be.
Gal Gadot surprised me. Most of her past performances were, well, sub par. Finally she's in the spotlight. She did pretty well. Although she has a long way to go, everyone begins somewhere. This movie is for her. Kudos for her strong performance, specially the fight sequences.
We all deserved this movie. While not a masterpiece, but good enough to be the stepping stone for women empowerment, and a proper story for a demigod and one of the most popular female superhero who can go toe to toe with the all powerful Superman. I just can't wait to see her interactions and chemistry with the big blue, and how they co ordinate, being the two gods that they are. DCEU is back on track.
Apart from her, Chris Pine as Steve Trevor shined, and he is straight from the comic book pages. He's a good actor, not surprising.
Despite all the positives, it has it's flaws. Some scenes were too long and unnecessarily dragged. Diana's chemistry with Steve could have been better. Dr Poison was equivalent to Kaecilius' henchmen..wasted.
A good ending satisfies all, after the emotional turbulence audiences go through. This movie did justice to that.
That being said, Man of Steel still remains the favorite DCEU movie for me. But perhaps that's because I'm biased to Supes.
