FILM: Wonder Woman ~ Her Story in GIFs

I DON’T CARE FOR FEMINISM. I’m an egalitarian and thank God, the first live-action cinematic Wonder Woman/Diana Prince has embodied egalitarianism proudly and wholly thus far. The Diana we’ve seen so far and will continue to see in Justice League spin-offs (including 2017’s Wonder Woman) fights for justice wherever it is lacked. Her goals aren’t prioritized based on gender or any other creed. She loves men and many aspects of being feminine. FACT CHECK: She also doesn’t just fight for women’s rights; she fights for all’s rights. She is not sexless nor emotionless. We watched her flirt with Ben Affleck’s Batman as if he were a little boy (She is almost 5,000 years older than him, to be fair), using the power of her physical beauty and internal steeliness in equal measure.

As the actress who portrays her, real-life Israeli wonder Gal Gadot, says, “[Wonder Woman] has many strengths and powers, but at the end of the day she’s a woman with a lot of emotional intelligence. She’s loving… It’s a mistake when women cover their emotions to look tough. I say let’s own who we are and use it as a strength.” It is silly to think being sexual or nurturing is somehow a depiction of weakness. You can have your seat at the big boy’s table while being gentle and vulnerable in addition to traditionally good-looking.

With that, and the new full-length trailer for Wonder Woman released at San Diego Comic Con 2016, let’s GIF Wonder Woman’s journey in order of real-life chronology:

Note: Diana was molded out of clay and given life by the Greek god, Zeus, rendering her immortal.

Early 1900s (Wonder Woman):

Princess Diana meets the first man she’s ever seen in her 4,000 years of life–crashed pilot Steve Trevor (Chris Pine)–on the shores of her secluded home, Themyscira:

 After meeting Trevor, Diana realizes the world is in peril and needs her specific skill set, hence her donning various early-20th century Western disguises:

Dress Sword
Talk about well-accessorized. Diana knows exactly what to wear to a cocktail party. Damn, we want that dress! Will take the sword, too, please.

And then fights baddies in her true colors:

That moment when Wonder Woman breaks a board with her friggin’ hips:

Part 1: LASSO…

Lasso badass

Part 2: SLICE!

SLICE

Oh yeah,  I fight old-school. F*** your bullets! (NOT an anti-gun stand. Yay, 2nd Amendment!):

F BULLETS

2016 (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice):

An antiques dealer now in the 21st century, Diana Prince is seen mostly in fancy civilian garb for much of this movie:

She suits up with heavy metal again in the film’s third act, when she flies in to save Batman from obliteration and joins forces with the Bat and Superman to fight Doomsday:

This face she makes. “Bad boy, Doomsday! Bad boy…I’m gonna cut off your arm now.”

She lassoes Doomsday so Batman and Superman can take their respective swings at him. Girl can work on a team!

Diana takes her licks in battle in stride. When she smiles at Doomsday for knocking her down… SO HOT:

Wonder Woman will return in 2017 in June for her solo film and again in November in Justice League:
