flat arcs are perfect for super hero movies especially DC’s characters. the best way to write a Superman movie is to have him be perfect and help everybody around him fix their problems. the same should also apply to Wonder Woman.

I think it would have been better if they cut out all of the stuff with Steve and given Diana a flat arc. because ultimately the movie isn’t even about her, it’s about Maxwel Lord and Barbara.

As Cheetah was ripping the armor apart like it was paper, my 11 year old daughter who had long given up on the movie at that point, said “Didn’t that armor hold off an entire army?”.

In some ways I agree, but I also really missed seing Wonder Woman fly in the previous movies. It’s an integral part of her (current) power set! Same for Jessica Jones in her series, but at least there I understand it’s mostly for budget reasons

It’s so weird because the conditions that would make Diana don this armor were gone by that scene. At least it’s more elegant looking than the clunky Kingdom Come design.

That armour was pointless. It strikes me as something that someone found in a picture from the comics and they tried to build a plot point around it so they could have a nice visual in the film. But it just didn’t work. Read more

People need to stop laying so many issues of this movie at the feet of Patty Jenkins and place the blame squarely where it belongs: on Geoff Johns. Read more

That’s the frustrating thing about WW84: there are pieces there that could have made it work better, they just didn’t use them. The connection between the wishes and the 80s mantra of greed being good was never really fleshed out. Steve is enchanted by the 80s but never has that “I wake up, they say we won. They Read more

If that’s the case, then shouldn’t Barbara have gained even more empathy, if she wished to be more like Diana? Big plot hole there.

like did Barbra become Cheetah because she liked WW’s heels at the start of the movie?

Let’s not forget the inconsistency in the time it takes for the bad effects to manifest. The guy in Egypt gets a wall, then loses his security force immediately. The president gets nukes, and the world is thrown into chaos within minutes. Diana gets her boyfriend, then verrrry slooooowly starts to lose her powers.

Yes, it’s Diana who says he doesn’t have a passport. Who knows why she would know that, presumably it came up at some point... Read more

While I agree that it’s a poorly conceived Monkey’s Paw story, the “catch” of Diana’s wish is that she begins to lose her powers. That’s established. There are not two catches per wish, and Steve never wished for anything. Read more

> Then, in an extremely sapphic series of events, the two women go out to eat, have a great dinner with meaningful conversation, and then Diana rescues Barbara from the unwanted advances of a drunk businessman. Read more

The “cost” of Diana’s wish (Steve returning) is very clearly shown in the movie to be the diminishment of Diana’s powers. The Monkey Paw of Steve coming back is not him inhabiting someone else’s body. It’s Diana losing her strength. That is outright stated in the film. Read more

Ehhh... I’m don’t really care if it is in character or not. It just shouldn’t have been allowed in the movie. It’s a problem that really didn’t need to exist since they could have just written in that the stone gave Steve a new body or something. You can keep the stalker obsessive stuff if you want that way and lose Read more

Nah, this script does not deserve this benefit of the doubt. An ambiguous “You lose something!” can’t just be used to explain every inconsistency in the film.
