And so we have it now: Wonder Woman, the film built around the third of DC’s classic trio of characters (along with Batman and Superman). It’s the first of its kind, and already marked as a success (after a $100 million opening weekend), which of course suggests a bright future for more. But, as with its male-led predecessors: is this necessarily a good thing?
There are many things in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice that will instil a deep sense of disappointment. By far the most egregious thing is the piss poor representation of women in this film.
