wonder woman boat scene

One of the many reasons why Wonder Woman worked so well was because it was unafraid to make a joke. Gal Gadot wasn’t just an inspiring superhero, but a surprisingly deft comedian, delivering lines like, “My mother sculpted me from clay and I was brought to life by Zeus” with an admirably straight face.

Given the job of acting off Gadot was Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, whose debonair spy often found himself hilariously fumbling for words around Diana. This meet-cute relationship felt like it was airlifted straight out of a romantic comedy, and in no sequence was it more apparent than the boat scene. One of the comedy highlights of the movie, it featured Steve trying to explain the world of men to a bemused Diana. It’s flirty, thriving, and mostly improvised. Pine’s improvised lines were enough to create an alternate version of the Wonder Woman boat scene, which was recently released online in anticipation of the DC film’s Blu-ray release.

wonder woman bonus scene

If there was anything truly wrong about Wonder Woman, it’s that there wasn’t nearly enough Etta Candy. Lucy Davis‘ scene-stealing performance as the buoyant and bullish secretary was delightful every time she was on screen, and provided much of the levity for the film.

And she’s back in action, this time recruiting Steve Trevor’s band of misfits for a post-war mission in a Wonder Woman bonus scene available exclusively on the superhero movie’s upcoming Blu-ray and DVD release.

On Thursday, director James Cameron — the man behind female icons such as Sarah Connor in the Terminator movies, Ripley in Aliens, and erm, Neytiri in Avatar — struck an illogical blow against the female-led movie of the summer: Wonder Woman.

Instead of being a watershed moment in Hollywood, Cameron accused Wonder Woman of being a “step backwards” for women compared to his beloved Ripley. It was an incredibly reductive way of viewing Wonder Woman and its cultural impact — and his comments naturally caused such an uproar that Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins stepped in to tell him exactly how he was wrong.

Not that Jenkins needs any help, but I’m also here to break down exactly why it’s not Wonder Woman that is woefully “backwards” in its views of women, but James Cameron.

Wonder Woman in IMAX

Wonder Woman has been basking in the seemingly endless success of being Warner Bros.’ new golden child, and now it has one more exciting development before it arrives on home video: a return to IMAX theaters for a limited run.

The DC Extended Universe film is still going strong in theaters nearly three months after its release, but is no longer showing in most IMAX theaters, which features films for only two to three weeks after their release. But on the cusp of Wonder Woman‘s Blu-ray release, IMAX will bring back the female-led superhero hit.

Patty Jenkins Directing Wonder Woman 2

Wonder Woman has made leaps and bounds at the box office and with the critics, but the Patty Jenkins-helmed superhero movie is looking to make the leap over yet another Hollywood establishment: the Academy Awards.

Warner Bros. is reportedly planning to launch a “groundbreaking” Oscar campaign for the female-led superhero movie for both the Best Picture and Best Director categories. If the studio succeeds, it would make Wonder Woman the first comic book movie ever nominated for Best Picture, and Jenkins the first woman to be nominated for Best Director since Kathryn Bigelow became the first female director to win for The Hurt Locker in 2010.
