Wonder Woman is a 2017 American superhero film based on the DC Comics character of the same name, produced by DC Films in association with RatPac Entertainment and Chinese company Tencent Pictures, and distributed by Warner Bros. Wonder Woman, is and will remain, the most enduring super-heroine of all time. A powerful princess who can hold her own against the likes of Superman and Batman, this Amazonian has often been hailed as a feminist icon. Yes, there were some rather cringe-worthy sexist moments, particularly in the TV series featuring Lynda Carter, but more often than not, Wonder Woman has stood tall among the pantheon of super-heroines. And we will soon see her make her live-action, feature film debut when she turns up in Batman VS Superman: Dawn of Justice.
She is going to become the first superheroine to get her own movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe when Captain Marvel comes out. In the comics, Danvers is a talented pilot who ‘gets’ special powers which include superhuman strength, endurance stamina, flight and near invulnerability. In fact, comic book writer Chris Claremont, who’s often credited for creating strong female characters describes Ms Marvel saying:
One of the most popular members of the mutant team the X-Men, Jean Grey is an extremely powerful mutant whose powers include telepathy and telekinesis. She is also an Omega-level mutant, a term used to describe the most powerful of mutants, when she is in her Phoenix form.
Catwoman/ Selena Kyle
A thief who turns good (or bad depending on the timeline you are in); Selene Kyle is one of Batman’s greatest allies and villains, and a thoroughly intriguing character in the DC universe. She’s one of the few mainstream superheroines to have a film of her own starring Halle Berry, but the movie itself was so bad that most comic book fans like to pretend it doesn’t exist. But ignoring that particular travesty, Catwoman is an intriguing character whose actions just can’t be predicted. And she was certainly kick-ass in The Dark Knight Rises.
The Black Widow
Agent Natasha Romanoff used to be a femme fatale assassin for the KGB but in time she defected and became an integral member of the superhero team The Avengers. She has had more screen-time in films than any other superheroine and is portrayed as a hard-as-nails assassin who more than holds her own against the big boys.
