    I can't say I'm surprised at the news. The trailers have looked like a mess to me, and the creative choices they've made so far are real head-scratchers. I honestly don't know what they're thinking of.

You and me both. World War 1? Really? Diana isn't Captain America, she's a modern Super-Hero.

    It only took a few scenes in the BS movie to show how COMPLETELY wrong they've got her character.

Agreed. Same for Justice League. Affleck doesn't even act like Batman and Ezra acts more like Spider-Man than Barry Allen....

    But hey, if the comics writers haven't been able to get Wonder Woman right in the last 30 years, what hope the film makers?

None, absolutely none.

And 30 years? You mean, you didn't like Diana as a character from 1986-2011? May I ask what you didn't like?

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
