For this special episode of The Hollywood Outsider, we gathered listeners and fans together and had an in-depth discussion on DC’s latest, Wonder Woman.
Numerous voices with different takes on DC’s Universe thus far weigh in on how they fared with finally bringing Princess Diana to the silver screen. How did Gal Gadot handle the Lasso of Truth? Was Patty Jenkins the right fit as director? How charming can Chris Pine actually be? Find out the answer to this and many other lingering questions as we dive into DC’s Wonder Woman!
Starting off in modern day, Patty Jenkins’ (Monster) foray into the land of gods and heroes takes us back in time to the first World War for a proper origin story of a certain Amazonian princess. Picking up after the events of Batman v Superman, Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), reflects on a photo from her past, which pulls us and the audience back to her beginnings as a young girl on the all-female island of Themyscira.
Protected from the outside world, the Amazonian women on this island live and train for the sole purpose of defeating Ares, the God of War, should he ever return. After a fluke crash landing in their nearby waters, Diana rescues American spy Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) and learns of the horrors of man occurring outside the safety of their beloved isle. Believing Ares is behind it all, and that she is destined for more than the simple life, Diana sets off with Steve to save mankind from their worst enemy: themselves.
