      Diana is both of those things though!

    No. She was brought to life by Zeus, but that's all. She's not a goddess or demigoddess. Zeus didn't father her in a 'natural' way. She's like Adam and Eve, not Hercules.

    And while she's been trained in combat and the use of weaponry she's not by nature a warrior. Just the opposite, in fact. She was brought up in a society where there had been no war for centuries, by people who eschewed war and had built a society based on peace, love and tolerance.

I usually hate the argument that something is supposed to be good because it sells well...but I can't see that approach selling well.

I think most people who would want to see a Wonder Woman movie would want to see Wonder Woman be some sort of bad ass who could hold her against any male character instead of being an enlightened pacifist. They would rather see a tribe of warrior women than women philosophers.

The movie may be getting Wonder Woman wrong...but I like that way better. Give me my warrior women.

    I know they're getting her wrong in the comics too these days, but that's why I don't read them. Seeing Diana carrying a sword is as alien to me as finding a picture of Ghandi carrying an assault rifle. It betrays a total misunderstanding of the character.
