Well you all certainly have opinions on the news that Wonder Woman and Superman will be getting together.Some are happy, most are unhappy and a few are just “rrrrrrrrr glubbb shuddup”. I posted some thoughts last night.
First up for those of you who weren’t concerned about how Wonder Woman would be positioned in this, I suggest you watch this video from “Good Morning America” where she is called a “homewrecker” who has been chasing Superman since 1988.
Yeah, that’s not problematic.
Oh and there’s this:
Yes, Wonder Woman is Superman’s Sexy New Sidekick!!
1) No specific mention of Wonder Woman
2) That her essence is boiled down to “sexy”
3) She’s his “sidekick”
That’s empowering, isn’t it?
I guess you could argue this is just their take but I’m doing media work all day, every day. You don’t get this angle unless the seeds are planted. And if you’re not happy with the angle then you call it out or ask that it be corrected.
But all is not head deskable! I think NPR has, in the form of text messages, exactly how I think this hook-up should happen.
Seriously, you will laugh.
