Reel Talk- Wonder Woman
by Da CogNegro
It’s no secret that DC Comics and WB have struggled to create another successful franchise outside of the Batman property. Though Man of Steel, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad have all done relatively well at the box office, critics and fan feedback has ranged from apathetic to downright vitriolic. To say thatWonder Woman has a considerable amount of pressure, to break “the curse”, is an understatement. What has always been baffling though is why it has taken so long for this film to be released when she is arguably one of the most iconic characters in pop culture! Put it this way, Green Lantern, Steel, and even Jonah Hex have had their time on the silver screen. Even Swamp Thing has had two films dedicated to his adventures in the…the…Swamp! But with the female empowerment movement being at the forefront of our current social-political sphere, the release of such a movie could not have come at a better time.
