Why Wonder Woman's vintage photo was actually really hard to pull off

Charles Moulton, Wonder Woman's creator, was a Harvard-educated psychologist, inventor of the first lie-detector test (hence the lasso of truth), and advocate for women's potentials.

Since Wonder Woman arrived at movie theaters, it's broken records both at the box office and on the internet.

Chris Pine's heroic love interest discounts Wonder Woman at nearly every turn, being condescending when he's not being patriarchal. Currently, they're not protecting so much as hanging out on an ancient island, training for their inevitable confrontation with the Ares, the god of war.

It's hard to believe that, amidst the countless reboots of the "Batman" and "Superman" franchises, it took 76 years for Wonder Woman to get her own standalone film. Currently, "Wonder Woman" is considered one of the top grossing female-directed movies of all time. As for those suggesting Wonder Woman is too scantily dressed to serve as a role model, Lynda suggests that the real problem lies with those critics and not with the image of Wonder Woman. It marks a huge step in feminism within the world of film. No, it wasn't the first female led super hero film.

When we celebrate films like Wonder Woman, it's for reasons beyond the female director (which is cool) the feminist message (which is also cool).

Jensen and Jenkins also closely consulted the latest era of comic books. Pine and Gadot have chemistry to burn, but it's so much more fun watching her be a badass without Captain Kirk making googly eyes in the background. The budding romance between their characters feels far from forced and remains unique by avoiding the Hollywood cliché of female reliance on men.

More than a week after its theatrical release, fans' enthusiasm for Wonder Woman is only growing. Director Patty Jenkins shot Wonder Woman and her World War I posse - which included Steve Trevor (Chris Pine), Sameer (Saïd Taghmaoui), The Chief (Eugene Brave Rock), and Charlie (Bremner) - when the film started production in November 2015, only four months before BvS dawned in multiplexes.

While the possibility that love can realistically be stronger than weapons may sound cheesy and unbelievable, it works quite well. Wonder Woman, through the use of her lasso, exacts truth from people and acts in the interests of the greater good.

So it was one of the more intimate scenes that you connected to, rather than action.

"Due to the success of the first "#Wonder Woman" movie adaptation, Hollywood can not deny the changing times.

Since then, the 32-year-old actress has starred in various "Fast & Furious" movies, as well as "Triple 9", "Date Night", "Criminal" and "Keeping Up With the Joneses". It's an earnest, charming summer blockbuster that manages to tell a fun and engaging story with a great deal of heart.
