The role of Queen Hippolyta was offered to Nicole Kidman but she passed on the role. She wanted to be part of the film because of Patty Jenkins, but scheduling conflicts with Big Little Lies (2017) prevented this. Kidman would later star in Aquaman (2018) as Queen Atlanna, mother of Aquaman/Arthur Curry (who is Wonder Woman's ally). See more »
In the trenches Steve says the battalion has been there a year. British battalions were put forward into the front trenches for a few days at a time then sent to the rear for recovery and rest. By the end of the War in 1918, the fighting is much more mobile. In German advances around April 1918 (Spring Offensive) British and French positions were pushed back several miles. And after July the Allies, reinforced with US troops and using improved tactics and tanks, have been advancing miles at a time in what is known as the "Hundred Days Offensive". 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.
