the, “thank you for bringing him back to me,” diana types out in the email she’s sending to bruce hurts me because, not only is that such an intimate phrasing, but it really is indicative of how many years diana must have spent with only an outdated watch to remember steve by. had she started to forget what he looked like, what he sounded like?
I honestly can’t put into words how much I appreciate the way the Wonder Woman movie didn’t sexualize a single woman in any scene. Not even the marketing posters I’ve seen have Wonder Woman in any risqué poses. You see women getting sexualized so often in superhero media (a good example is Black Widow in the Marvel movies tbh) but this was like??? oh my god????? every woman was treated like a human being and not eye candy and that’s become so rare for the action genre like I can hardly express how empowering that feels
