We’ve really been looking forward to Wonder Woman, not least because we’re rooting for it to be a success as one of the few superhero films with a female protagonist. However, the first clip from Wonder Woman aired last night and it’s safe to say it’s got us a little concerned. You may have seen glimpses of the alley fight scene in trailers, but the clip that debuted on The Tonight Show gave us an uninterrupted look. While on the surface, it shows Wonder Woman kicking butt, the underlying message is that she still needs a man to step in and save the day. Yawn. Kim and Sam discuss exactly why this footage has got them riled up.
