The Trailer Reactions to the Upcoming Wonder Woman Movie

By Angelo Lopez
September 30, 2016

Ever since I followed the trailer reactions to the Batman Vs. Superman movie, I've been hooked on watching the trailer reactions of the movies I look forward to seeing. It's fun following various people give their opinions and to see their reactions to the trailers. Many of them are comic book nerds or movie nerds like me. One movie that I really look forward to seeing is director Patty Jenkins 2017 movie Wonder Woman, starring Gal Gadot.

Wonder Woman was created in 1941 by Dr. William Moulton Marston, a psychologist with a Ph.D. from Harvard, with a specific feminist agenda in mind. Jill Lepore wrote the book The Secret History of Wonder Woman that explores the influences of the woman's suffragist movement and Margaret Sanger's birth control movement on how Marston conceived of the Wonder Woman comic book. Lepore wrote in the New Yorker magazine:

Superman débuted in 1938, Batman in 1939, Wonder Woman in 1941. She was created by William Moulton Marston, a psychologist with a Ph.D. from Harvard. A press release explained, “ ‘Wonder Woman’ was conceived by Dr. Marston to set up a standard among children and young people of strong, free, courageous womanhood; to combat the idea that women are inferior to men, and to inspire girls to self-confidence and achievement in athletics, occupations and professions monopolized by men” because “the only hope for civilization is the greater freedom, development and equality of women in all fields of human activity.” Marston put it this way: “Frankly, Wonder Woman is psychological propaganda for the new type of woman who should, I believe, rule the world.”

Wonder Woman succeeded in Marston's hope of instilling feminist ideas in many young girls. Gloria Steinem, for instance, was a huge fan of Wonder Woman growing up, and she used Wonder Woman in the cover of the first issue of her feminist magazine Ms.

Here is a video of Steinem talking about her love of Wonder Woman.
