The new Wonder Woman movie is about to come out and a movie theater called the Alamo Drafthouse decided to schedule a special "women-only" screening of the film and a lot of men in Texas went crazy over the news. While the critics of the event do have some weight as it is a little ironic when it comes to gender equality, Wonder Woman is the one movie where this kind of screening is understandable. While the character Wonder Woman has had male love-interests in the comics and other media, she's an Amazon who's from an all-female island. They're just being a little true to the comics here, and honestly I'm a little ashamed on the behalf of my fellow men that this spun into the controversy it did. Also if you think about it, every comic book film with a female lead has been considered a failure on some level. I'm excited that we may finally have the film that breaks the mold.
What do you think?
