Also, i've personally never heard anyone laugh at the idea of a Wonder Woman movie. But then again, I don't think she's a particularly well known character, at least over here. I think the most that the people I talk to know about her, is that she's what girls dress up as when it's a superhero themed night

Just accept that this is the direction they have taken.
Then, you can either decide this version isn't for you and stop watching. OR you can decide to enjoy it for what it is - an elseworlds tale.

'In Elseworlds, super-heroes are taken from their usual settings and put into strange times and places - some that have existed, and others that can't, couldn't or shouldn't exist. The result is stories that make characters who are as familiar as yesterday seem as fresh as tomorrow.'
