  1. Really enjoying the podcast. Just finished the scene by scene breakdown of Batman V Superman. I really loved the Wonder Woman film, I especially love the WW 1 setting. I started reading up on the war and it is the perfect setting to set her story.

    Dr. Poison's mask has a historical basis, artists made them for soldiers disfigured in the war

    The Angel of Mons -- you could see this as how the Wonder Woman story would play out in the world set up in the film past down through stories

    Woman were also seen at the front, so Diana wouldn't be totally out of place, and her outfit was based off the unofficial female uniforms that some women would wear since they didn't have an official one since the British and Americans would have only let them have been a part of the service

    I also loved how Diana encouraged each member of the team, even Charlie who was dealing with shell shock, even if he couldn't be a sniper he was still a valued member of the team to Diana and understood he was important to unit cohesion
