Because I am feeling ridiculously fannish about Wonder Woman at the moment, and because I am a nerd with too much time on her hands on a Sunday evening, here are a few interesting tidbits for you taken from the Wonder Woman IMDB page (with a little help from Wikipedia). 

There are 17 named Amazons in the credits (plus 15 actresses listed as guards, warriors, or townspeople.)  11 of the 17 named characters have their ages listed. 

Average age = 41.4 years

Oldest Amazon = 57 years

Youngest Amazon = 26 years

7 Amazons played by actresses 40 or older

Connie Nielsen (Hippolyta) and Robin Wright (Antiope) are both 51 years old.

Of the 32 women listed as playing Amazons in the credits, half if not more are women of color (not all the actresses had photos on their page).

These women are of all shapes and sizes.  There are stuntwomen, personal trainers and at least one boxer.

tl;dr = when you put women in charge of making a movie about a female superhero and the culture in which she is raised, you get something more realistic than 85% of the movies out there - superhero related or not.

Happy international Women’s Day!

have a great day and lets spread some love! 

  • If the movie is about black people, use BLACK actors.
  • If the movie is about Native Americans, use NATIVE AMERICAN actors.
  • If the movie is about Chinese people, use CHINESE actors.
  • If the movie is about Japanese people, use JAPANESE actors.
  • If the movie is about Egyptians, use EGYPTIAN actors.
  • If the movie is about Latinos, use LATINO actors.
  • If the movie is about people who are biracial, use BIRACIAL actors.
  • If the movie is about people who are different races, use the correct races or don’t do the movie at all.

Our world is diverse, our culture is diverse and our movies should reflect that.
