Wonder Woman has raked in over $100M in its opening weekend - the highest for any superhero film ever.

Gal Gadot is Wonder Woman incarnate and bad ass in real life.  She's Israeli and worked as a combat trainer.  And she was 5 months pregnant with her second child when she did her reshoots.  The director, Patty Jenkins, knew that she wanted to display strength and vulnerability in her character:

"I’m tired of sincerity being something we have to be afraid of doing. It’s been like that for 20 years, that the entertainment and art world has shied away from sincerity, real sincerity, because they feel they have to wink at the audience because that’s what the kids like. We have to do the real stories now. The world is in crisis.

When I practiced law, I had a wonder woman figurine on my desk.  For me, it was the ultimate symbol of strength.

This new documentary Wonder Woman: The Untold Story of American Superheroines looks amazing.  You can watch the entire film here.  Media has such a huge influence on young girls and their futures.  "If she can see it, she can be it":

An unknown actress Adrianne Palicki (yes that's her real name) has been cast in the role of Wonder Woman for David E. Kelly's new television series based on the iconic superhero.

I'm not sure how I feel about the costume. It's definitely cooler that she's wearing pants but somehow it comes off a bit cheesy. Maybe it's the cheap looking latex. Linda Carter rocked the silk American flag bustier and stared out blue panties - it is a hard act to follow.
