People who are complaining about Superman’s glasses disguising his identity have obviously never worn glasses. You take them off around your friends, people who see you every single day, and they’re like ,,WHAT THE FUCK, YOU LOOK SO DIFFERENT! IS THAT HOW YOUR EYES LOOK LIKE?! NO WAY! WHO ARE YOU???“
So I keep going on about this but what I love so much about Wonder Woman, about Diana, is that she is kind. She is so kind.
And yes, sure, Superman is kind, (at least most adaptations of Superman), but what gets me about Diana is the little things. Pretty much every person she runs in to, she wants to help them.
The small moments that got me in the movie were when she listened to people, really listened, and tried as best she could to help them.
When she has her super determined face on, ready to go to war and then stops because “Baby!” and runs over to hold the baby.
When she sees a man in agony her first instinct is to help, even when most people are running away.
When a poor woman who does not speak the language of anyone else around her latches on and begs her to help, Diana doesn’t tell her she has more important things to do. She breaks off her mission to save the few she can.
When Charlie is being hard on himself because he thinks he’s broken and useless from war flashbacks, Diana asks “who will sing for us?” She, who has valued the art of fighting all her life, does not belittle someone for being too scared, she gives them value regardless.
I love so many things about this movie, but the small moments of genuine care and kindness for people she doesn’t even know, especially in a time of war (real, terrifying, soul-scarring war) really get me.
“This character matters so much to so many people. I want to get that right. I want to do it justice. I want people to believe in the character and have faith in the character and kids to grow up wanting to be Superman. Or, God forbid, there’s people who are going through hardship and wishing that this character would turn up and save them.” - Henry Cavill
There was a time above… a time before… there were perfect things…
diamond absolutes. But things fall… things on earth. And what falls…
is fallen. In the dream, it took me to the light. A beautiful lie.
