Choice and the DCEU

I’ll have more to to say about this when I finish up my third (lol) viewing of Wonder Woman tomorrow morning, but I have to say that my absolute favorite thing about Wonder Woman - and the DCEU as a whole - is this idea of goodness and heroism being a choice. I don’t want heroes who take goodness for granted. I don’t want heroes who I’m just supposed to accept as being good because narrative tells me they’re  “the good guys.” 

Because you know what? 

Goodness is hard. Love and hope and kindness don’t come easily or naturally - in general - and especially when faced just how fucking hard and cruel this world is. So what I love especially about the DCEU is the fact that they show us this - they show us heroes who struggle with the weight of just how shitty this world is, how cruel people can be…and choosing to be good anyway

That - to me -  is what makes them truly heroic. Choosing to believe in love and hope and the goodness of men despite everything in your life, everything before you that shows you and tells you the exact opposite. Superman chose to protect a world that was suspicious of him, at best, and reviled him, at worst. Batman chose to once again believe that men could be good even though twenty years in Gotham made him feel as though no one could stay good. 

Wonder Woman chose love - chose to believe in the power of love - even when it was lost to her. 

These are my heroes. 

i just started reading sbr and so far……i’m mcloving it

Okay so like

Lucas Steele plays Anatole every night in Great Comet which means…

He plays someone completely opposite of him eight times a week

He has to get into some intense acting

He gets in a couple fights onstage

He has to kiss/flirt with maybe fifteen people in the show every time

On top of that he has to dance and that choreography is INTENSE

He also has to dance on that crazy stage without dying in the process

Speaking of that stage, he has to run up about seventy flights of stairs PER SHOW (that’s including stage and theater stairs)

ALL THE WHILE he has to sing through the ENTIRE SHOW

AND HE HAS TO HIT INSANELY HIGH NOTES, SPECIFICALLY THE C# IN PETERSBURG

In an article, someone says he has to go to PHYSICAL THERAPY because the show is so physically intense

The same article mentioned him having SURGERY because of how intense the show got

Not to mention, he’s been doing this show for YEARS

So why didn’t Lucas Steele win the Tony?
