    I've always said in the past that a Wonder Woman movie would be easy to make because the origin story has already been laid out by George Perez in the classic 1987 comic book reboot and the 2009 animated movie.

    But I am not that confident in a sequel. I have a feeling it'll be just short of good.

    I don't know of any classic Wonder Woman stories off the top of my head , outside of a fairly easy to work with origin most of the prominent stuff with her is in am ensemble, unless they want to go ahead and have her Murder Maxwell Lord.

    I'm down for Cheetah bit I would also like them to Utilize Darkside's Furies with Granny Goodness and Barda before Barda becomes good.

    I like the potential, similar to what they did with Superman/Batman: Apocalypse animated movie.

    I don't think they should go there with WW now she might be there most epic property.

    I think they should use her maybe two more times at best in her own films and then maybe 2-3 in ensemble movies and her character should really play a superman type role but without the goody, goody pants on.

    They have established her as a God killer and need to keep her at that level and fighting Cheetah or others that level will take her down too many notches.

    I think it would be great to see the ensemble putting everything into beating god tier foes, then Superman holding back and she just steps past him and finishes the foe while Supes looks on dumbfounded and maybe says something like 'we had him beat already' to which she replies 'yes, I assured' as she dismisses him and his way of dealing with that level of threat.

    I guess that means Jenkins has a blank slate to work with. She will probably get complete creative control of the character.

    Circe makes the most sense I think

    Cheetah doesn't really do it for me. She feels like a street level villain

    Yeah $1mil to direct a blockbuster from a major studio is peanuts. And it's not like Jenkins hadn't had any credits to her name prior.

    Plus back-end, so if it makes a lot of money she gets a percentage.

    One of my favorite things from the first one was the fight scenes (which was unexpected because it looked dumb in trailers). So I hope they add more fights scenes like that.

    The chemistry between Steve and Diana was the energy of the movie. Take away that and then the charming fish out of water quirks that Diana had adjusting to the world and I'm not very optimistic

    Isn't it set in the 80s? That's rarely a good sign.

    They could piggyback Miller's anti-Reaganomics while mirroring the Trump administration, make it a touch more prescient than ATOMIC BLONDE. I can't see them shaking the pro-Feminist angle any time soon, which is too bad considering how little they do with it. It's just there, but there's no getting around it.

    Steve was the true hero of the film, and Chris Pine was hands down the best actor in it. He carried the movie.

    I thought the final script had some definite anti-feminist undertones and subtext, but I don't get the sense those were deliberate. Some of the emotional feminist sentiments inherent to Wonder Woman are natural contradictions (i.e. women are going to cure men of our violent nature...through a warrior princess who defeats the God of War in physical battle-- yeah, this feminist icon is rich with deep, deep thought).

    Gadot's greatest asset is her ability to project feminist outrage while not coming off in a way that turns male viewers off. That cannot be undervalued, but beyond that "star" appeal, in terms of her actual acting, nothing about her was special or compelling. She was passable.

    Pine is simply gold. That man is gold. Hands down one of the best blockbuster movie stars in decades. He's the kind of actor who can carry serious blockbusters with loftier Best Picture-type ambitions: who has both the "star" charisma that pulls audiences to him in a matter of seconds, but also has the chops to execute some of the most challenging material you could present an actor. Hopefully, Hollywood recognizes that, and lines up more for him.
