We were pretty excited when DC Comics announced a new Wonder Woman film. Not only does the film feature an impressive lineup of female actors, including Robin Wright, Connie Nielsen, and Gal Gadot in the title role, but Wonder Woman is also directed by Patty Jenkins, making her the first female director of a comic book film.

The first Wonder Woman trailer debuted at Comic Con in 2016 and was packed with action and drama, taking a much darker twist with the character who was first brought to the small screen by Lynda Carter in the 1970s. Gal Gadot’s Diana Prince, the tough Amazon princess and immortal warrior, who was first introduced to audiences in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, looked even more intense and impressive than we remembered. But following the Comic Con reveal, there seemed to be little promotion for the film.

With Wonder Woman’s June 2 release date fast approaching, its become apparent to comic book fans that the female-centric film will not be receiving the same promotional push and marketing exposure that every other DC and Marvel film has enjoyed from studios. We actually had to look up the date of the film release. If this was Batman, June 2 would be burned into our memory.

Now Warner Brothers has finally found a way to market Wonder Woman and unfortunately, it’s just about the worst partnership we can think of. To be clear, little girls can be superheroes, they just have to be thin as well. Great.

If you guessed that people were having none of it, you guessed right.

Then Jamal said what we’re all thinking:

Let’s try to focus on Wonder Woman being a kick ass film about female empowerment and not something used to market yet another product that tells women how they should look.
