So the Amazons are Greek?

Greek historian Herodotus described the Amazons as tall, blond warrior women (which is why I like when Hippolyta is blond). Turns out the Amazons may have been from Russia.

Check out this documentary on uncovering the historical Amazons:

Of course the movie would have it's own fictional origin of the Amazons, but I wouldn't want them to be Greek. It would be better if they were a diverse patchwork of nomadic warrior women who settled on a secluded island. They would be forced to learn each other's native languages including English. So that's how Diana can speak to Steve Trevor. Amazons teach multiple languages.
