Yeah I just can't see them bringing out both movies in the same year. So it feels like if JL comes out in 2015, we won't see an MOS sequel until a while after, if at all

I guess you could just call her Diana the entire movie and have her not actually be a superhero (similar to Black Widow).
I am not even a big fan of Wonder Woman, but I totally disagree with what you're saying.

A female Superhero wearing red, white, blue and gold? Yeah that's impossible. That'd be like man in blue tights with red pants on the outside and a cape! Totally ridiculous!

... ahem...

As for the name, I really don't see why Wonder Woman is that much more ridiculous than Superman, Batman, Iron Man, Spider-man etc.

And thinking that her world or her principals would pull away from the 'tone' is even more mad to me. In the JL, we have such a mixture of heroes from all sorts of different backgrounds, and connections to all sorts of different worlds.

It's just a lack of imagination to think it can't be done.

Also, i'm not sure what you mean about female superheroes being hard to do all around...

'Why do I find all of this so horrible to explore?
Sure, they are interesting questions that I don't mind seeing in an elseworlds GN. But as a theme for the film that is kicking off the tone of the whole JL, and in a film that is presenting Superman to the general audience in a way that current generations will remember him?
I just don't like it. It's dark, it's depressing and it's not how I like the tone of Superman films to be.'
