"We are very excited to present select, women-only WONDER WOMAN screenings at Alamo Drafthouse", Morgan Hendrix, Alamo Drafthouse creative manager said in a statement to The Washington Post. We were setting out to make something close to Richard Donner's Superman or Batman Begins. "That happens at about an hour into that movie and same thing with Christian Bale, he finally says "I am Batman" about an hour into the movie and I think ours is similar".

"And I think the fact that she's the most powerful warrior, but she can also be vulnerable; and she can be confident but confused; blunt, but curious". (The United Nations soon dropped the character as an honorary ambassador after staffers there complained that the comic book superheroine was "not culturally encompassing or sensitive.") Gadot recently proclaimed that Wonder Woman "of course" is a feminist in an Entertainment Weekly interview that is being cited across the internet.

It won't hurt Gadot's popularity that she seems to be, as the original Wonder Woman character was in the comics, sculpted from clay by a god.

Gadot's Wonder Woman was first introduced in Dawn of Justice and she'll be seen again later this year in director Zack Snyder's Justice League. It was just like when I would see Ridley standing in the middle of Malta, this fort in Malta, and chomping on his cigar and just looking happy. All of that comes out in the performance that she gives. She's awesome. I feel like I'm the luckiest actress that I got to work with such a phenomenal director like her.

When Wonder Woman first appeared as somewhat of a cameo on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I was a bit underwhelmed. Last fall, she was included in a United Nations ceremony honoring the Wonder Woman character as an honorary ambassador for the empowerment of women and girls.

Considering that Princess Diana and Kal-El (Superman's birth name) have supernatural origins and traditionally dress in red, blue, and gold, thinking they could be related is understandable. I feel the character, as represented in the film is a lot more than simply filling the gap of a female lead in the superhero universe.
