During the TIFF screening I attended, there were moments when you could feel the air get sucked out of the room and hear actual seat squirming. In the film, C. Neither Topher nor China really knows the full truth about Graham, and yet when personal stakes contextualize the immediate situation, the truth becomes irrelevant to both of them.

Earlier this week, I spoke with the supremely talented Rebecca Hall, who plays Elizabeth Marston, and she had a lot to say about why she believes Professor Marston is so important. Hall, whom you might know from her work in The Prestige, Vicky Cristina Barcelonaand Iron Man 3 among other things, has yet to see the film with an audience, as she was unfortunately unable to attend the world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. She found herself intrigued by the story enough to do more research into it, and at one point she wanted to produce a film telling the story herself.
This is the week my book, Wonder Woman: Bondage and Feminism is released. A few people responded.
Questions about my book would be great too, if you are one of the few who have read it! I love Harry Peter too! His style is very different from current mainstream superhero art.

He looks back to a Victorian illustration tradition in a lot of ways; stiff figures, fluid linework, just very different than the muscles-on-muscles pin-up style you get in Marvel and DC nowadays. How do you think Wonder Woman has informed the portrayals of other women superheros. And why do you think there there not more leading lady superheros. Most of the well known ones these days seem to be part of teams ex.
XMen, Fantastic Four rather than stand alones. There are stand along female superheroes, like Buffy and Sailor Moon. They tend not to come from Marvel and DC the big two superhero companies. It seems that people are clamoring for a Wonder Woman movie, but do you think an interesting film could actually be made with the character in her current state? Or are her bizarre origins, years of retcons, constantly fluctuating characterization, and general difficulty to handle by modern comics writers too much to overcome?

Somebody could just go back to Marston hidden marston sex chat on wednesday Peter and make a movie with gorilla bondage and space kangaroos, if they wanted. In other words, the Wonder Woman movie will be bad because the Avengers and Superman and so forth are bad, not because Wonder Woman comics are bad. I suppose they might try to incorporate feminism in some way.
That could be bad, as the animated feature showed. The histories and planetary layouts of comic book universes, once created haphazardly, are solidifying into un-breachable canon. Meanwhile, film adaptations attract talented, occasionally brilliant, actors, and pack in enough pseudo-philosophy and current polemics to merit thoughtful reviews, hidden marston sex chat on wednesday at least avoid outright dismissal. Captain America fights military surveillance, dancing around his own imperial baggage.
The Nolan Batman trilogy harnesses fearful imagery of mental illness and the Occupy movement to apologize for its own elitist and authoritarian nature, which it presents as perversely anti-heroic. Guardians of the Galaxy seems aware of its own ridiculousness, and so avoids stigmatization as overt camp.
The cinematography, special effects, costume and set de are top-notch. The appearance of being an ambitious film counts more than the internal logic of the final work. It counts more than actual narrative ambitions, like championing a truly underdog protagonist, envisioning utterly alien societies and technologies, or portraying good and evil in an insightful way.
Contemporary superhero narratives indulge in emotionally disconnected escapism, sexuality and violence, all carefully leavened with inside jokes and buddy comedy. These films, and their comic source material, feature all the bells and whistles of ambition, while being safe projects at heart. Some of this might be endemic to the superhero genre; in the words of Noah Berlatsky in a recent piece in The Atlantic.
Unlike Supermanthe original Wonder Woman comics were not a personal fantasy of power and assimilation, born already calibrated to the yearnings of depression-era, immigrant, and wartime youth. The Wonder Woman comics were an intentional manifesto, meant to instill radical concepts of femininity, masculinity, sexuality and heroism into children. Instead, Marston and artist Harry Peter created one of the most original and unclassifiable comics in history.
Even a casual glance at the original Wonder Woman issues elicits curiosity, if not alarm, as they depart from the standard procedure of most superhero work. The forties Wonder Woman comics featured a great deal of bondage, and a cavalcade of sexual reversals. Many villains are introduced as one gender, and then transform into or are revealed to be another.
Occasionally their gender identity is never fully resolved. Wonder Woman binds enemies with her magic lasso, which makes them obedient to her will, but only after being bound and made helpless herself. The male protagonist, Steve Trevor, repeatedly injures himself, begins the series comatose, and is at points slung over the shoulder of a villain and kidnapped, yet he is never portrayed as being dithering or pathetic. Marston and Peter obsessively repeat classic melodramatic scenarios of bondage and hysterical emotion, while constantly changing who is doing what.
This fetishizes the action, blends characters like a Venn diagram, and causes the linear narrative to coil in on itself, disrupting the temporal logic. An eminent psychologist of his time, Marston theorized that the world would be a better place if people learned to accept and practice both dominance and submission, as opposed to harshly overpowering others.
Neither dominance nor submission was considered the superior state, and Marston links both in a pleasurable, loving cycle that ultimately le to world peace. Marston intended Wonder Woman to be the model of female leadership. She is boisterous, positive, friendly and even-keeled— an athlete, adventure lover, caretaker, and confident romantic. Wonder Woman throws herself into the fray of battle one minute, while openly crushing on and nursing a wounded Steve Trevor the next.
The representation of subjugation matters as much to women as denunciation of it, and possibly more, an idea Noah supports through the theories of several respected literature and media scholars. Marston and Peter also turn bondage on its head, displaying male victims and female abusers.
This is brave, especially when Marston casually reconciles themes that many consider mutually exclusive.
The chapters on pacifism and queerness contain many theoretical surprises, including alternative visions of the proper functioning of education, motherhood, and sexual orientation. Noah also contributes great ideas of his own.
His exploration of gendered responsibility and heroism, and how expectations change for female characters, is both inspired and concise, and hopefully destined to enter into wider discussions of superheroism. Best of all, Noah does a great job of showing that these ideas clearly appear in the Wonder Woman comics themselves, and are not projected onto it by later minds. Occasionally, this diversity scatters the argument.
Readers may question why Noah includes some voices, and not others: he extensively draws on Anne Allison, a scholar of post-war Japanese domestic life, and even then, on a very limited spectrum of her work dedicated to mother-son incest urban legends, and a bit about lunchbox making. I would have also appreciated a second, corroborating source. On the same note, is Pussy Galore the only available example of male fantasy lesbianism?
Distracted by moments like this, a skeptical reader could disengage from the greater point. My chief criticism of Wonder Woman: Bondage and Feminism is that there should have been more evidence from indisputably relevant and more general sources, and the argument should have relied less on isolated examples. Noah details two contemporary runs of the Wonder Woman comics, one disturbingly anti-female, the other well-meaning but inane. I would have also liked a discussion of why, after the close of WWII, Wonder Woman repeatedly targets imaginary misogynist dystopias, often on alien planets.
The forties run seems equally split between war-propaganda and planetary colonization, and this schism seems rich for exploration. Most of all, I felt the book skipped over an examination of early twentieth century melodrama.

These criticisms essentially come down to a wish the book had been longer, which I realize is a backwards compliment. People love superheroes, perhaps now more than they ever did. Hidden marston sex chat on wednesday current popularity of superhero entertainment has lasted longer than their initial explosion in the forties.
I hope there is room in mainstream entertainment for risky visions of what it means to be a hero. My book, Wonder Woman: Bondage and Feminism is out today! So, I figured I would try to give folks a chance to see everything I wanted to put in here. In many cases you should be able to click on the picture for a magnified look.

The closer a look I take at Wonder Woman, the more she surprises me.
She turns up everywhere. I never knew until this past summer that my older sister is a huge WW fan. What do you like about them?

Do you have a favorite Wonder Woman comic from their run, or a favorite aspect of those comics? I like their sheer absurdity. I like their playfulness. I like the fact that Diana is superlative in many ways but is also very, very human.
