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.
I cannot believe how perfect Chris was, from the moment we thought of him to the moment he played every second in this movie. Chris is one of the most talented actors I’ve ever worked with in my life. But also, he’s a real man, very comfortable with his masculinity, so much so that he’s not sexist at all. He completely takes other people on their own face value and is willing to leave space for them, and as a result he was a perfect boyfriend for Wonder Woman because it’s someone who could actually look at her and admire her and appreciate her and it didn’t take anything away from him. And then he just made us all laugh all the time.
“The theater company has already sold out of both women-only screenings and told Mashable it is planning to bring the idea to other locations. “That providing an experience where women truly reign supreme has incurred the wrath of trolls only serves to deepen our belief that we’re doing something right,” creative manager Morgan Hendrix told the publication.”
