Comic-Con was used to unveil the first Wonder Woman trailer. I like what I see here. Release is June 2, 2017 - almost a year away.

Looks better than the Justice League trailer, that's for sure.

Cautiously optimistic, because it's DC and still may suck.

I'm a sucker for period pieces and that's why I'm more optimistic for WW than I would normally be for a DC film.

I like the look of it, I'll put it on my Netflix list sometime in 2017.

It's DC. It's going to suck. The trailer looks great, but...again...DC.

Ok, I stopped that halfway through just because it looks good enough I don't want to spoil it.

There are some movies I completely avoid all the trailers for. This is one, so was Episode 7.

I still wish Gal was a physically larger woman, to better fit the amazon image, but that's being nit picky.

It would have caused production problems, since a majority of the Amazons would have to be cast extra-tall to match. Presumably a 100+, counting extras. Also, I'm OK with them keeping both knockers. Complete mythological accuracy is not required in my opinion.

LOTR cast about as many short people for the hobbits. The Expanse has a lot of skinny tall people as extras on a much smaller budget. Can be done. I just think Zack Snyder picked someone whose face looks like his view of WW (compare Watchmen).
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.

You keep your criticisms of Gal Gadot to yourself, thankyouverymuchplease.

Note for future reference: anything spoken in non-glowing terms towards Gal will be met with swift Jawbone justice.

While she could be sturdier, it makes it all the more remarkable that she is strong. Finding a good actress is more important than another body builder whose only range is scowling.

Don't get me wrong, she's one of my favorites out of the new crop of action heroines, I very much enjoy watching her (and her voice makes me snug in the briefs), I just wish she had a little more mass while playing WW, that's all.

Wonder Woman has been rated PG-13 by the MPAA.

I guess I'm OK with this - WW isn't about the red stuff going everywhere. Even though it takes place during trench warfare. And we'll have American Gods for that stuff.

I am in favor of more R-rated action movies though. Fury Road / Deadpool / Logan are good examples of what an R can do for a movie.

The kids need something too, especially young girls waiting for a character like her to be prominently featured.

There should certainly be PG-13 action movies, but the situation of the last decade or so when ALL action movies are PG-13 is untenable.

(As a non-American, I also think that you put far too much importance on the number of F-bombs that the characters drop in a PG-13. Rate them based on violence and nudity, but language?)

I know it's mostly been for financial reasons, but that seems to be shifting as of late. I think Deadpool might have been the catalyst unless I'm forgetting another superhero title. It's almost as if Marvel used his position as a peripheral character to test the mature waters, although their comics are often pretty tame.

(As a non-American, I also think that you put far too much importance on the number of F-bombs that the characters drop in a PG-13. Rate them based on violence and nudity, but language?)
Cultural difference, which seems to be shifting as well.

I've read several books on the origins and impact of swearing (Holy Sh*t and Cuss Control — both secular books, the former being a decent read), and as best as I can tell, swearing is undergoing a transformation in North America. People are generally far less offended by the F-word as they are by the N-word.

If someone drops an F-bomb in public in front of my 5-year-old, I'm likely to stop and say, "Dude...you think you could scale it back around my kid?" However, if someone drops the N-word, everyone is likely to stop what they're doing in complete shock.

Other examples: c**t, fa**ot, ch*nk...

I've gone off the rails though. This is a conversation that could probably take place in a different thread. I'm super fascinated by the history and the future of swearing.

Deadpool was an important test, and it showed that the idea had legs. It is pretty clear that people had been chafing under the PG13 requirement for a while though. My favorite example is in X-Men: First Class, where they burn the single F-bomb on Hugh Jackman's cameo.

I think the difference to the N-word is that it is about a specific person, while the F-bomb is just an exclamation.

*Cough!* Dredd. *Cough!*

Americans and swearing is weird. in 24 you can show bullets flying, fistfights, bones breaking, throats cut, bombs going off, murder, death, torture, kidnapping, probably rape or at least the threat of it but say anything naughtier than "Damn" and thats where you cross the line. No doubt a lady nipple would cause the end of the world.
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....
