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.
In celebration of Halloween, I’ve compiled a list of horror films from several different sub-genres along with links to their respective IMDB pages. Please note that the films listed below may contain scenes that some find triggering, disturbing, or upsetting; if you have any concerns over a film’s content, I highly encourage you to research it prior to watching in order to make as informed a choice as possible.
HORROR: films that inspire fear and tension by creating an unsettling
But you couldn’t help it, could you? Because in your heart of hearts,
like Barclay and Delahay and Fowler and Menzies, you still believe, in
spite of your talk of equality and fraternity, you still believe some
people are better than others because of the way they make love. Now,
think of that for a lifetime. Think of the names: pansy, nancy, fairy,
“You’re good with animals, aren’t you? They have a word for that, don’t they? Mage. I thought your team was outlawed. Never met one of you in the flesh. I thought you’d be taller. And have a beard.”
Robbed of his birthright, Jon comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy - whether he likes it or not. A mage woman, identifying herself only as an acolyte of the Three-Eyed Raven, supports Jon and the resistance.
Jon x Sansa + King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017)
The year is 1715. Pirates rule the Caribbean and have established their own lawless Republic on the island of New Providence where corruption, greediness and cruelty are commonplace. Among these outlaws is a brash young and selfish Welsh captain named Edward Kenway. Kenway joins with Blackbeard and other legends of the sea to become the bane of Templars and the enemy of empires.
