"Bite my shiny metal tiara!"
That's...well, not exactly the message that Futurama star John DiMaggio had for Gal Gadot, Patty Jenkins and the rest of Team Wonder Woman, but when your series is about to be ditched by Netflix and fans are revolting, it's hard not to put the angriest possible words of congratulations into Bender's mouth.
As in Wonder Woman, the universe of Futurama featured Amazons...although for the purposes of Futurama, the warrior women were gigantic, sex-obsessed, and simple-minded.
(Also, aliens, as they hailed from the world of Amazonia.)
Of course, the race (who come from the island of Themyscira) are...a little more badass...in Wonder Woman.
Wonder Woman has been at the top of the box office since it released. The film set a new record for a movie directed by a woman and crossed $200 million at the domestic box office over its second weekend.
Before she was Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), she was Diana, Princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, Diana meets an American pilot (Chris Pine) who tells her about the massive conflict that's raging in the outside world. Convinced that she can stop the threat, Diana leaves her home for the first time. Fighting alongside men in a war to end all wars, she finally discovers her full powers and true destiny.
Wonder Woman was created by William Moulton Marston for DC Comics. She made her first appearance in All Star Comics #8 in 1941 and has gone on to become a feminist icon and one of DC Comics' most beloved and recognizable characters. Though she had a popular television series in the 1970s starring Lynda Carter, the Wonder Woman movie will be the character's first time headlining a film.
Wonder Woman is directed by Patty Jenkins, from a screenplay by Allan Heinberg & Geoff Johns, story by Heinberg & Zack Snyder and Jason Fuchs, and stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Lucy Davis, Saïd Taghmaoui, Ewen Bremner and David Thewlis.
Wonder Woman in now playing in theaters.
