Something I love is Diana dramatically posing in front of Steve, announcing she’s ready for the Man’s World:
And he just looks up and goes, “NOICE”. Like, he doesn’t even question why would she wear something like that, he quickly picked these women are not’ playing around and whatever they wear works for them, so Diana’s new outfit must be lit, too.
Later, he asks her to get some new clothes when they get to the Man’s World but it’s not because he believes what she’s wearing is inapropiate, but because he knows the rest of the world will think and they need a low profile.
He never questions her choices of clothing or weaponery. The only time he did was before he saw how fierce the Amazons are, once he saw these women fight, he stood to fight with them, no questions asked, not a shitty comment after.
This is what makes him so unique in front of other male characters in superhero movies. Had someone else wrote and directed the movie, had he been the hero even, we would probably had to sit down and listen to him joke about her armor, question Diana or (yikes, yikes, yikes) see him checking her out in her “next to no clothes” armor.
we finally get a good male love interest in a female led superhero movie and half the internet is stupid as shit and they’re complaining about diana falling in love with steve trevor like a)that didn’t happen in the comics or b)like she isn’t a bisexual.
i get it. men suck. but patty jenkins said it perfectly. making diana a “i can do this on my own” figure isn’t fair to her. clark has lois to give him a humanity and love story that makes him so interesting. diana is interesting all on her own but to deny her a love story because of that is stupid.
from the beginning, steve trevor has been a part of her storyline and he’s one of my favorite love interests in all of comic history. i think everyone wants to shame any instance of a man and that’s sad.
steve trevor never told diana she couldn’t do something just because she was a woman. he tried to teach her the ways of the time and when he told her she couldn’t cross no man’s land, it wasn’t because she was a woman. it was because as far as steve knew, you literally couldn’t do it.
so i think everyone being assholes about steve trevor needs to either read the comics or come to me and let me tell you why this man is honestly incredible. i love him. he’s one of the best comic love interests and wondertrev is perfect to me.
