Princess Diana, aka Diana Prince (Gal Gadot), is the real life version of Wonder Woman, the most powerful female character in the DC Extended Universe. She is born and raised in the Amazon by other warrior women who were created by the Greek gods to protect mankind from corruption. Wonder Woman’s father is Zeus, the DC fictional version of the classical Greek mythology king of the gods.
Wonder Woman’s special power comes from her bullet deflecting gold bracelets. Her character was created in 1941 by William Moulton Marston, who also invented the lie detector test. One of his wives wore large gold bracelets in lieu of a wedding band and thus the inspiration for Wonder Woman’s superhero costume stems from her.
“Wonder Woman” is a super amazing movie set during World War I. Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) is a pilot that crashes in the Amazon where Princess Diana lives. Wonder Woman rescues him and both return to the western front of the war in Belgium intent of ending the war.
“Wonder Woman” has so much going for it, it is a do-not-miss movie this summer. It scores a 93% both from critics on the Tomatometer and audiences. As of this writing, it has already raked in almost a quarter of a billion dollars at the box office. And as a special treat, Robin Wright, aka the acting President of the United States for a few weeks in Season 5 of “House of Cards,” plays General Antiope, Wonder Woman’s aunt and mentor.
