Development for a live action Wonder Woman movie feature began in 1996, with Ivan Reitman as director and possible director.  In 1999 the project became attached to Jon Cohen , who adapted Wonder Woman to producer Joel Silver , with the hope that Sandra Bullock would star.  By 2001, Todd Alcott was hired to write the screenplay, with Silver Pictures backing the project.  At that time, performers like Mariah Carey and Catherine Zeta-Joneswere also rumored to be possible candidates for the role of Wonder Woman.  Leonard Goldberg , however, focused on Bullock  who said that she was approached for the role. In addition, wrestler Chyna also expressed interest. Lucy Lawless , the star of Xena: Princess Warrior , was also under consideration, though she was more likely to be portrayed as a “flawed hero.”  The screenplay went through various drafts written by Alcott, Cohen, Becky Johnston, and Philip Levens,  and by August 2003, Levens had been replaced by screenwriter Laeta Kalogridis . 
In March 2005, Warner Bros. and Silver Pictures announced that Joss Whedon would write and direct the film,  with a reported salary of $ 2 to $ 3 million.  Since Whedon was directing Serenity at the time, and required time to research Wonder Woman’s background, he did not begin the screenplay until late 2005.    Early drafts of his screenplay included Steve Trevor narrator, a fierce battle between Diana and her mother over Trevor’s welfare, and after leaving Themyscira, Diana rendered helpless by the modern world. Whedon was not able to complete a final version of his screenplay, however, and left the project in 2007.  
Although Whedon stated in May 2005 that he would not cast the part of Wonder Woman until he finished the script, actors such as Kate Beckinsale were linked to the part. In 2010 however, Whedon admitted that he did have an actress in mind for the part, stating that “Wonder Woman was basically Angelina Jolie.” A few years later in May 2017, Indie Ground Films leaked a version of Whedon’s script in-progress online. Some reacted negatively to it on social media in June 2017, shortly after the release of Patty Jenkins’ version of the film.When asked about this response to his script, Jenkins said in a June 2017 interview that she has not read it and that Whedon is “in the DC universe now, and I do not think there is any reason to go there […] It was what it was, I’m lucky that I’m the one who got to do it, but I would have done it compared to what I would have done. ”  
A day before Whedon’s departure from Wonder Woman , Warner Bros. and Silver Pictures purchased a spec script for the movie written by Matthew Jennison and Brent Strickland. Set during World War II, the script impressed executives at Silver Pictures.  However, Silver stated that he had purchased the script because he did not want the rights reverting; while stating the script had good ideas, Silver did not want the film to be a period piece .  By April 2008, Silver hired Jennison and Strickland to write a new book Wonder Woman’s origin, but explores Paradise Island’s history.  In November 2008, Beyoncéwith Wonder Woman, Comics and Warner Bros., to discuss her interest in portraying. 
In 2010, Warner Bros. stated that a film was in development, along with films based on DC Comics superheroes the Flash and Aquaman. Both Wonder Woman and Aquaman were still under consideration for solo film subjects as of June 2013. DC Chief Diane Nelson said Wonder Woman “has been, since I started, one of the top three priorities for DC and for Warner Bros. We are still trying right now, but she’s tricky.” On October 5, 2013, WB chairman Kevin Tsujihara said he wanted to get Wonder Woman in a film or on TV. Shortly afterward, Paul Feig said he had pitched the studio an idea for Wonder Woman as an action-comedy film. The studio then began to search for female directors to direct the film. While Michelle MacLaren was the studio’s initial choice to direct (and while she initially indicated interest), she eventually left the project due to creative differences.
In 2015, Patty Jenkins accepted an offer to live Wonder Woman ,  based we screenplay by Allan Heinberg and a story co-written by Heinberg, Zack Snyder, Geoff Johns and Jason Fuchs.  Of this version, Gadot stated that,
for a long time, people did not know how to approach the story. Diana can still be a normal woman, one with very high values, but still a woman. She can be sensitive. She is smart and independent and emotional. She can be confused. She can lose her confidence. She can have confidence. She is everything. She has a human heart. 
This version was designed to be a prequel to the first live-action, theatrical appearance of Wonder Woman, in the 2016 movie, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ,  placing Wonder Woman in the 1910s and World War I (a decision which differs from her comic book origins as a supporter of the Allies during World War II ).  As for story development, Jenkins credits the stories by the character’s creator William Moulton Marston in the 1940s and George Perez’s seminal stories in the 1980s in which he modernized the character.  In addition, it follows some aspects of DC Comics ‘exchange origin in The New 52 reboot, Where Diana is the daughter of Zeus .   Jenkins Cited Richard Donner ‘s Superman as an inspiration. 
– Director Patty Jenkins in response to the interview questions: “Let’s talk a bit about Gal. You inherited her from Zack Snyder. Was it difficult to not get to choose your own Wonder Woman?” and “What is it about Gal that makes her such a good fit?”
In late 2013, Zack Snyder cast Gal Gadot in the role of Wonder Woman for the 2016 movie, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice over Elodie Yung and Olga Kurylenko .     Some fans initially reacted to this choice Gadot’s appearance.  Snyder would like to go back to Gadot, stating that he
tested a bunch of actresses, as you can imagine. But the thing with Gal is that she’s strong, she’s beautiful, and she’s a kind person, which is interesting, but fierce at the same time. It’s that combination of being fierce but kind at the same time that we were looking for. 
Gadot described Diana as having “the heart of a human being she can be emotional, she’s curious, she’s compassionate, she loves people, and she has the powers of a goddess.” She’s all for good, she fights for good. ”  She also said that Diana has “many strengths and powers, but at the end of the day she has a woman with a lot of emotional intelligence .”  As to how is it different?Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Gadot said “We go back 100 years to when she’s more naive”, further explaining, “She’s this young idealist. She’s pure. Very different to the experienced, super-confident, grown-up woman you’ve seen”. Gadot underwent a diet and training regimen, practiced different martial arts and gained 17 pounds of muscle for the role. Gadot was previously offered a different role (as a villain) in Man of Steel, which she declined because she was pregnant at the time; this allowed her to later be cast as Wonder Woman in the film’s follow-up. Gadot signed a three-picture deal. She was only paid a base salary of $300,000 for the film itself.
Chris Pine was cast as Steve Trevor,   a character he has described as a “rogue-ish, a cynical realist who’s seen the awful brutish nature of modern civilization” and added that he is a “worldly guy, a charming guy “.

As well, Elena Anaya’s performance as Doctor Poison is the cinematic debut of that character. Nicole Kidman was in negotiations for the role of Queen Hippolyta,.

Wonder Woman received largely positive reviews from film critics, with some calling it the best film in the DC Extended Universe, and praising Jenkins’ direction, performances, chemistry of Gadot and Pine and musical score. On the review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, the film holds an approval rating of 92% based on 356 reviews, with an average rating of 7.5/10. The site’s critical consensus reads, “Thrilling, earnest, and buoyed by Gal Gadot’s charismatic performance, Wonder Woman succeeds in spectacular fashion.” It is the highest-rated superhero film on the site.[note 1] On Metacritic , which assigns a normalized rating, the film has a score of 76 out of 100, based on 50 critics, indicating “generally favorable reviews”.  Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of “A” on an A + to F scale. 
Critics commented favorably on Gadot’s performance and Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor. Andrew Barker of Variety found the film to be more lighthearted than recent DC Comics films: “Never prone to stewing in solitude, and taking more notes from Richard Donner than from Christopher Nolan, Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman provides a welcome respite from DC’s house style of grim darkness—boisterous, earnest, sometimes sloppy, yet consistently entertaining—with star Gal Gadot proving an inspired choice for this avatar of truth, justice, and the Amazonian way.” Vox stated “Trevor is the superhero girlfriend comic book movies need”. The San Francisco Chronicle‘s Mick LaSalle lauded the performances of Gadot, Pine, Huston, and Thewlis while commending the film’s “different perspective” and humor. Richard Roeper of Chicago Sun-Times described Gadot’s performance as inspirational, heroic, heartfelt and endearing and the most “real” Wonder Woman portrayal.
A. O. Scott of The New York Times wrote that it “briskly shakes off blockbuster branding imperatives and allows itself to be something relatively rare in the modern superhero cosmos. It feels less like yet another installment in an endless sequence of apocalyptic merchandising opportunities than like … what’s the word I’m looking for? A movie. A pretty good one, too.” Michael Phillips of Chicago Tribune compared the film to Captain America: The First Avenger, noting that as with “the first Captain America movie over in the Marvel Comics universe, DC’s Wonder Woman offers the pleasures of period re-creation for a popular audience. Jenkins and her design team make 1918-era London; war-torn Belgium; the Ottoman Empire; and other locales look freshly realized, with a strong point of view. There are scenes here of dispossessed war refugees, witnessed by an astonished and heartbroken Diana, that carry unusual gravity for a comic book adaptation.” Katie Erbland of IndieWire commended its thematic depth, explaining that “Wonder Woman is a war movie. Patty Jenkins’ first—and we hope not last—entry into the DC Expanded Universe is primarily set during World War I, but while the feature doesn’t balk at war-time violence, it’s the internal battles of its compelling heroine that are most vital.” Alonso Duralde of TheWrap similarly felt that, “Diana’s scenes of action are thrilling precisely because they’re meant to stop war, not to foment it; the idea of a demi-god using love to fight war might sound goofy in the abstract, but Jenkins makes the concept work.” Ann Hornaday of The Washington Post praised Gadot and Pine’s performances as well the film’s detailed plot and narrative while comparing of some slow-motion action sequences to The Matrix. Stephanie Zacharek of Timemagazine hailed the film as a “cut above nearly all the superhero movies that have been trotted out over the past few summers” while praising Gadot’s performance as “charming” and “marvelous” and commending Jenkins’ direction of the film as a step forward for women directors in directing big-budget blockbuster films in Hollywood.
Elise Jost of Moviepilot observed that “Gadot’s take on Wonder Woman is one of those unique cases of an actor merging with their story, similar to Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark. Gal Gadot is Wonder Woman, and Wonder Woman is Gal Gadot.” Jost praised Gadot’s interpretation of Wonder Woman as the one in which Gadot “absolutely nails the character’s unwaveringly positive outlook on life. She’s a force of nature who believes in the greater good; her conviction that she’s meant to save the world is stronger than her bullet-deflecting shield. She’s genuine, she’s fun, she’s the warm source of energy at the heart of the movie.” The Federalist suggests that Wonder Woman is “a story of Jesus”. “The movie is wrapped up in faux Greek mythology, true, but there’s no mistaking the Christology here.” “Perhaps Christ in the form of a beautiful and kick-ass Amazon is all that our contemporary society can handle right now”, stated M. Hudson, a Christian feminist. On HuffPost cultural critic, G. Roger Denson, who regards the superhero genre as a source of contemporary “Mainstream Mythopoetics” (“the making of new yet vitally meaningful, if not symbolic, stories filled with imagery reflecting, yet also shaping and advancing, the political, legal, moral and social practices of today”), wrote that the “No Man’s Land” scene “that people are crying over in theaters and raving about afterward happens to be among the most powerfully mythopoetic scenes ever filmed at the same time it is one of the oldest myths to have been utilized by artists and writers after it had been invented by early military strategists and leaders.” Specifically “used by director Patty Jenkins”, the scene raises “the esteem for powerful yet compassionate women as heroes and leaders to a level equal with that of men for having won over a huge and adoring popular audience around the world”.
Steve Rose in The Guardian criticized the film for failing to explore the material’s potential for “patriarchy-upending subversion”. Peter Travers of Rolling Stone criticized the film’s over-reliance on exposition: “Wonder Womanis hobbled by a slogging origin story and action that only comes in fits and starts. Just when Gadot and director Patty Jenkins…are ready to kick ass, we get backstory.”
“Gas was intended to win the war. On that much Wonder Woman is absolutely right.” said David Hambling in Popular Mechanics. Rachel Becker of The Verge stated that despite the scientific liberties of using a “hydrogen-based” chemical weapon as a plot device, the film succeeds in evoking real and horrifying history. “First off, mustard gas is such a horrible, terrifying weapon, it doesn’t need to be made more potent. But if you were a chemist bent on raining destruction on the Allied forces, you wouldn’t do it by replacing the sulfur atom in mustard gas with a hydrogen atom. You’d know that sulfur is the linchpin holding together this poisonous molecule.”
 since her initial 1941 appearance in Sensation Comics ,  as she was created to document “The Wonder Woman has been the subject of a discussion regarding the appearance and representation of female power in general, and growth in the power of women “, while wearing” a golden tiara, a red strapless, blue underpants and knee-high, red leather boots. ”  She was blacklisted a year later in 1942 in the “Publications Disapproved for Youth” because, the group behind the list argued, she was “not having dressed”.  
A few decades later, Second-wave feminist Gloria Steinem ‘s  Ms. Magazine debuted in 1972 with an image of Wonder Woman on the cover . Historian Tim Hanley suggests that this move shifted “the focus of female leadership to equality and equality,” he said.    This perception shifted over the years, however, as demonstrated in December 2016 when the United Nationsto the title of “honorary ambassador for the empowerment of women and girls”, who has given to the comic book character ( Lynda Carter and Gal Gadot ).  The title was dropped in response to a petition signed by 44,000 people, which was rejected as a “shimmery, thigh-baring bodysuit with an American flag pattern and knee-high boots” . The petition stated that “it is alarming that the United Nations would consider the United States and the world of objectification of women and girls”.  Wonder Woman director, Patty Jenkins, responded to the question by saying, “That’s the sexist, I think it’s sexist.” Ask me what I would like to see other superhero “. 
The debate continued with the release of Jenkins’ 2017 film, Wonder Woman , which according to the BBC had “some thinking it’s too feminist and others thinking it’s not feminist enough”.      Kyle Killian found an inherent contradiction in the construction of Wonder Woman as “a warrior” whom, she states, is also highly sexualized. Killian thus suggests that these elements “should not be the focus of a kickass heroine-her beauty, bone structure, and sexiness-if she is to be a feminist icon”.  Theresa Harold competed, comparing Wonder Woman to Katniss Everdeen (of The Hunger Games), who “did not have to wear a teenager’s wet dream of a suit to fight in”.  Christina Cauterucci also felt that the woman’s ability to be considered a “feminist antidote” was undermined by her “sex appeal”.  Other criticisms refer to the construction of Wonder Woman in the film as “an implausible post-feminist hero “.  
Jenkins disagrees with this line of criticism, however. She has Stated That She Was raised by a Second wave “feminist mother”   Who taught her to be “both great Aware That There HAD beens sexism purpose also: ‘Congratulations – thank you, now I get to do whatever I want, Mom! ‘ ”  Jenkins thus notes that it is this upbringing which has been criticized in Wonder Woman’s costume.  When she was working on her own version of Wonder Woman’s ” Gladiator ” re-design of the outfit (in the 2016 movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ) Jenkins decided that Wonder Woman should not be dressed […] It should be different […] I, a woman, want Wonder Woman hell, fight badass, and look great at the same time – the same way men want Superman to have huge pecs and an impractically big body. ”  Jenkins also notes that she is “frustrated” by the criticism of Wonder Woman’s appearance, stating “when people get super critical about her outfit, who’s the one getting crazy about what a woman wears? . ”  Gal Gadot concurs with Jenkins, arguing that the character “is a feminist” “The feminist is about equality and choice and freedom.” And the writers, Patty and myself, are all over the world. equal. ” 
Valerie Estelle Frankel support Jenkins’ vision. Frankel argues that the film subverts the male gaze ,  stating that the construction of Wonder Woman tends to shift every day of the period, including Third-wave feminism (which reflects Jenkins’ approach) .    Zoe Williams offers a similar argument to the situation of a woman who is not so much at the same time. having thighs, actual thighs you can kick things with, not thighs that look like arms, is a feminist act “. Williams then juxtaposes Wonder Woman Sarah Connor , Ellen Ripley , and Lara Croft , whom she suggested were all constructed for the male gauze , in which a “female warrior becomes a sex object”, (a point which she argues that Jenkins directly references in the film). Gloria Steinem thought that the movie “was very good” as it was made Wonder Woman’s “Amazon origin story clear, she was stopping war, not perpetuating it.” Steinem also noted that she knew “some women were disappointed by all the makeup, but I may be desperate-I was just happy that the Amazons had wild hair!” Her only complaint is that of the World War II, and that it has been developed in the past.  Steinem also gave Hillary Clinton the first Wonder Woman Award in October 2017 during the Women’s Media Center’s “Speaking Truth to Power Awards”Jane Fonda , and Robin Morgan ). Upon receiving the award, Clinton noted that she had seen Jenkins’ Wonder Woman movie and that she “loved the outfit”. She also said that she was “really keen” on Wonder Woman, Clinton “I thought it would be a good thing for her. I’m a little girl, and then I have a young woman, and then I’m a little older woman, I always wondered when I was wondering. ” Clinton had previously praised Jenkins’ movie, in a public August 2017 message, stating that “it was just as inspirational as I’d suspected a movie, a powerful woman in a fight to save the world from international disaster would be.”   
Director James Cameron continued this debate, through his review of the Jenkins’ film. In an August 2017 interview with The Guardian , Cameron qualifies Jenkins’ vision of Wonder Woman as “an objective icon” and called the film “a step backwards”. In contrast, he states, his character Sarah Connor (from her Terminator films) “She was very strong, she was very good, she was a terrible mother, and she earned the respect of the audience through pure grit.” Jenkins stated in response that Cameron’s “inability to understand what” Wonder Woman is, or stands for, is not a filmmaker, he is not a woman “. She is more likely to be tough, tough and troubled to be strong, and more of a woman. is attractive and loving, then we have not come back  Reaction to this debate was mixed. Julie Miller sided with Cameron who she states that “a pretty hardcore feminist” and who told Vulture that “Aliens […] It’s up to Ripley to win the day. “In contrast, Miller argues that Jenkins and Gadot envisioned Wonder Woman as” a woman who exuded both femininity and strength, along with are differently than They do other men “. Susannah Breslin aussi Agreed with Cameron Describing Jenkins’ Wonder Woman as” a Playmate with a lasso “and” female power with no balls “.  Others Were more critical of Cameron’s criticism .  An item inNewsweeksuggested that Cameron’s films include “lot of objectification”, and included quotes from Hollywood celebrities such as Jesse McLaren, who commented that “James Cameron’s just got his heart set.”  Noah Berlatsky found areas of agreement between Cameron and Jenkins, stating that while Cameron’s objection is “an old point that’s been made over and over for decades,” Jenkins film is not “solely focused on objecting to Gal Gadot for a male hearing “. 
A few weeks later in September, Cameron reiterated his criticism in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter . He compared Gal Gadot ‘s representation of the character to Raquel Welch ‘ s films of the 1960s,  and reinforced a comparison with Linda Hamilton ‘s portrayal of Sarah Connor. He argued that Connor was “if not ahead of its time, at least a breakthrough in its time” because it “looked great”, she “was not treated as a sex object”. He also said that while he was “applauding Patty directing the film and Hollywood, uh, letting a woman direct a major action franchise, I did not think there was anything groundbreaking in Wonder Woman. good movie. Period. ”  Lynda Carter’s ” Wonder Woman Actress” Responded to “Cameron’s Hollywood Reporter” interview by asking him to “Stop dissing WW.” Like Jenkins, she suggests that while Cameron does not understand the character she does. She also refers to Cameron’s reviews as “thuggish jabs at a brilliant director” that “are ill advised” as the “movie was spot on”. Carter also states that she has the authority to make these observations because she has “  A month later, Jenkins responded to Cameron’s comments once again in an interview with Variety , stating that it is not upset at all but not at all. I have to reply that I think it’s incorrect. ” Tricia Ennis was also critical of Cameron’s statements, arguing that “it is a feminist and an ally to women, it is not very good at it”. of those you’re trying to help “. She also states that “it is not enough to simply call yourself a feminist.” You have to bring women to the table. Cameron is doing a good job in the world of […] Cameron is using his position as a respected producer and director to silence women. ”
