Wonder Woman goes VINTAGE

OMG

Have you seen the trailer for the forthcoming Wonder Woman film yet? I missed the early announcement that three films were planned. Well, the first one was rumoured to be set in the 1920s, though that doesn't look the case to me. There's the line 'War to end all wars', which would suggest the First World War, as indeed would the costumes in the dress shop scene at the end of the trailer, and the badges on the planes. (I was a bit baffled by the way that all the planes in the trailer appear to be monoplanes; some were used in WWI though biplanes were more common.) I am so up for Edwardian Diana Prince!

If the rumours are still vaguely accurate, the next film is going to be set in the 1930s/1940s, which would be likewise brilliant. My only regret? That Wonder Woman is DC and Peggy Carter is Marvel. A Wonder Woman/Peggy Carter 1940s-set movie would be just about my favourite thing ever.

  1. I'd heard a lot of talk about the new reinvention of Wonder Woman but hadn't actually seen the trailer. I love the idea of her coming back, she's an amazing role model for girls, however, I'm not sure if I'll end up liking this or not. I really didn't enjoy Captain America because of it's 'Captain America won WWII for everyone' angle, so I have reservations about this will going the same way. I'll still watch it but probably not at the cinema. I'll wait and see what other people think of it first. xx

  2. I loved watching Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman when I was a child.
    I had no idea there was a film out, I wondered why a couple of ladies said I'd suit a Wonder Woman costume at the weekend, I thought they were just mad. xxx

  4. I hadn't seen the trailer, but I am very excited. I wouldn't expect too much historical accuracy from a super hero movie, but it should still be fun to watch.

  8. Wonder Woman was a bit of a favourite when I was a child. I always have reservations about these reboots though and especially the depiction of women (I sat fuming throughout Suicide Squad when all the shots of Harley Quinn seems to be looking up at her ass) but I will reserve judgement for now.
