First look at Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman
I really, really like her look. I’m not thrilled with the heels, but the key elements are there:
- You can see the Lasso of Truth on her hip
- The bracers (I dig the detailing on the upper part of the forearm)
- The tiara
- The eagle motif on the top of the bodice
- The sword forged by Hephaestus
At first glance, the costume reminded me of her look in Superman: Red Son, but there aren’t a ton of similarities outside of the more militant aesthetic.
I’m curious as to what the costume will look like on screen once they’ve run it through their color correction process. At this point, everything is various shades of brown, so I’m hoping that the bodice and greaves will be red with a blue skirt.
Also, this is clearly not Metropolis or Gotham, so I’m thinking… Apokolips? Which, if that’s the case, then the scale of this film is going to be far grander than I’d envisioned with the writers diving into New Gods territory. It could also just be a standard-issue “badass publicity shot background.”
Fingers crossed, folks.

… we only get one episode of Korra tonight and what does Nick fill the 8:30 block with?
I read this article on Polygon.com, which they had reprinted with permission from Leigh Alexander’s blog, and I thought there was some really good stuff in here.
If you don’t want to read the whole thing, I’ll break it down:
Don’ts: Don’t ask the offended blogger for solutions, don’t ask them to point you to research backing up their points (DO your own research), don’t feel like you have to respond, don’t mansplain, don’t make jokes to “ease the tension,” don’t play “tone-police” (i.e., no more “Not all men” bullshit).
Dos: Support them on your own blog, consider the well-being of others (i.e., don’t spotlight the victim, possibly opening them up to more attacks), promote their work (and not their victimhood), take on some (but not all) battles, ACTUALLY have the person’s back (in a meaningful, concrete way), care about feminist issues all the time.
Just finished episode 2 of American Horror Story.
