And hearing @ohtze describing the feminist symbolism of the Reylo interragation and fight scene makes me wanna flip a table, flip a finger to the patriarchy and burn shit to the ground in the most wonderful way.
Full confession: “Can creative get the roles of the babyfaces and
heels right? For example, you have Sasha Banks, talking about wanting to
wrestle since she was a kid, women who have inspired her and pretty much giving
these “I am woman, hear me roar!” female empowerment speeches, just so she can
fat shame Dana Brooke 2 seconds later. Also, you have loveable babyface Enzo
Amore, being a Jersey Shore dirtbag trying to sleep with a married woman and
hitting on her from the start, just for the supposed heel that’s Rusev to
defend her honor and beat the shit out of the guy who even considered sleeping
with his wife.”
gosh ok what i love about Wonder Woman and that line she says to Bruce, “I don’t think you’ve ever known a woman like me”, is that it totally DOES NOT come across as special snowflake syndrome (even though, arguably, she is pretty fucking special). I’m just so fucking ready for her movie and all the other movies she’ll appear in. It’s true that Wonder Woman is usually more of a RA RA RA I AM WOMAN HEAR ME ROAR LETS BATTLE type of hero, but Gal Gadot is just bringing something to the character that makes it slightly different and i’m just loving it. There was so much subtlety and precision and depth in the power she had as a woman and as a character when she wasn’t even in her Wonder Woman garb. ITS JUST IN HER FACE!!! HER EYES!!!! I LOVE HER SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!
She hardly got to know [Carter]. She lost him just when she was coming around to believing in the inevitability of their love for one another. But the progressive, ‘I am woman, hear me roar’ version of her is unlike every other lifetime she’s lived where she too had died and they were reborn together all over again. What makes this version of Kendra different is she has the other Legends. She can be a hero without him, and she has to stand up to Savage alone and vanquish him by herself.
