One Thing (Among Many) That I Really Appreciated About Wonder Woman
I was ready to go into Wonder Woman, fully expecting Steve Trevor’s story Arc to be “I’m sexist, and by the end of the film Diana will prove me wrong, but until then I’ll be a smarmy jerk boy.” I was waiting for a “Woman can’t do X” joke or Steve being incredulous at her abilities and having it be played for laughs. I was waiting for it, to clench my teeth and get through it.
BUT WHO BOY HOWDY WAS I WRONG AND I AM SO GLAD
becuase from the moment Steve “Ride or Die” Trevor washes up on Amazon Island of Buff Chicks he is 100% there for Diana. He treats her as an equal, is supportive of her power, follows her into battle, and is only critical of her when he’s concerned for her safety, and even then does what he can to help her push forward anyway. I wasn’t expecting to leave the theater having a lot of feelings about Steve Trevor but HOOOOO DOGGY.
Like Steve is such a breath of fresh air. After sitting through film after film of of stubborn, borish, snarky, sarcastic men that we’re supposed to revere as heroes, I’m so so thankful that we get Steve Trevor, who is a warrior who believes in the best of people, who willingly embraces vulnerability and the Lasso of Truth, who believes in self-sacrifice and that human beings are inherently good, who above all believes in, supports, relies on, follows, and loves Wonder Woman.
ITS LIKE A WOMAN DIRECTED THIS MOVIE OR SOMETHING, FINALLY DEPICTING A HEROIC MAN OF WOMAN’S DESIRES, AS OPPOSED TO A HEROIC MAN OF WHAT MEN THINK IS WOMEN’S DESIRES

The throne rumbled. A wave of gale-force anger slammed into me. WHO DARES- The voice stopped abruptly, The anger retreated, which was a good thing, because just those two words had almost blasted my mind to shreds. Percy. My fathers voice was still angry but more controlled. What-exactly-are you doing on my throne? “I’m sorry, Father,” I said. “I needed to get your attention.” This was a very dangerous thing to do. Even for you. If I hadn’t looked before I blasted, you would now be a puddle of seawater.
I have a headcanon I'd like to share with you if that's ok!!! Hanzo likes various plants, especially succulents. So he has a bunch in a window garden, that he spends a lot of time taking care of. When he's alone it's a fair bet you can find him singing soft lullabies, songs of luck and growth, and things in Japanese he'd always meant to tell Genji, but since he couldn't he sings them to his plant babies while he's taking care of them.

Since he never got to do that for Genji when he was little, he wants to at least help something grow and be wonderful in life.. And when Mcree accidentally happens upon Hanzo one day singing to his succulents and smiling softly to himself as he remembers the good times he did have with Genji when they were young, it reaffirms every reason in his head of why he loves this man. And he knows in that moment this is the man he wants to marry and spend the rest of his life with.
