Tbh I just see it as pointless. Yay, we get a whole viewing to ourselves. How special! :D

Like it's a theater, I really don't see how men being in there would change anything but hey. Whatever they wanna do, I guess.

I might have a suggestion.

As much as I'd like for that to be true, it isn't
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wonder_Woman_(1974_film)

Edit: actually nevermind, I apparently forgot about the animated movie. That one definitely deserves to be remembered.



Welp the more u know

Yeah... close to forty years ago. Damn, I'm old. (I have the entire 42-issue run of Dazzler in a box somewhere, most of which I bought off the newsstand when newsstands were still a thing.)

I'm pretty sure you could say that about literally every 1980s superhero. Although we had, at the very least, gotten Wolverine out of the bright yellow and neon blue...

Well, we seem hell bent on taking their birth control and limiting reproductive rights, so the least my fellow menfolk can do is give the ladies one night with the first big screen, live-action Wonder Woman adaption. Which, I've heard so far, is actually pretty good, and not just "better than the rest of DC's bullshit" good. Kind of a weird baby of Captain America 1 and Thor.

In summary: it's fine.

This seems like an insult to Wonder Woman and what she stands for if you ask me.

Wonder Woman lived on an isolated hidden island that only had women on it and she never cared to change that. Granted, there were pretty good reasons not to, including Godly decree, but I still don't think she'd lose any sleep over this.

It is just a matter of principle as I see it, perhaps a minor incident, but one overall. After all, does she not favor diplomacy? What is more diplomatic than an actually good DC superhero movie in the current lineup being enjoyed by both males and females?

It's still gonna be enjoyed by both men and women, there's just going to be this one specific showing at this one specific place that's going to be women only. Again, I think its dumb but other establishments are allowed to do this kind of thing so I don't see any more reason to care when it's a movie theater doing it.

Only if it's women only ....i have never seen an establishment do a man only thing because people would complain if they did.
