Director Patty Jenkins spoke to The Hollywood Reporter this week, and shared her fears that the weight of the world’s women, basically the fate of feminism itself, rested on hers and lead Gal Gadot’s shoulders.

"I can't take on the history of 50 percent of the population just because I'm a woman,” she told the reporter. "I'm just trying to make the greatest version of Wonder Woman that I can for the people who love the character as much as I do and hope that the movie lives up to all the pressure that's on it."
From everything we’re reading it’s lassoing that pressure and taking it out with a well-timed round-house.
