    Well... it is the sole purpose of my existence, yeah.

    Anyway, something crossed my mind... armored Wayne Ent. truck that most likely carries some valuables + Diana wearing that big cloaking poncho thingy that would hide things very well = Diana steals from Bruce again? :p

    But as far as villains go for Wonder Woman then they definitely have to go with Circe to start off or even use First Born

    You got me. I would have posted that myself if I didn't think they would rip me apart for it.

    Heh, didn't cross my mind, but yeah, it is from the trailer.

    Lets just pretend that I was going for that. :oldrazz:

    You can say it this way if you like.

    One thing remains though...

    Good call.
    I gave up on the BvS forum pretty early. I see no reason why people are willing to spend hours and hours just regurgitating their hate. It is just a movie. Some liked it, some did not. Maybe in some threads there were serious, objective analyses of flaws and virtues, but what I saw drove me away.

    I posted some of the things that came to my mind in the Justice League forum but that is beginning to be overrun, too.

    I do not really see any use to that. I am not a frequent poster here anyway, so I am likely going to put my time to better use, and just drop by this area.

    Looks like Diana is outside the Louvre Museum. Perhaps that Wayne truck is transporting some antique see needs or is looking after.

    Language/usage trivia ;nd:

    An antiques dealer typically operates a moderately sized retail or wholesale business. And the subjects of trade are usually +100 to maybe 300 years old.

    On the other hand, an antiquities dealer mainly concerns herself with items of archeological significance - several hundred to thousands of years old. Clients are likely to be galleries, museums or rich private collectors.

    If the movie is bookended by modern scenes, what would cause Diana to flashback to her origin all those centuries ago? Does she come across an artefact that reminds her of it, or does someone ask her how she came to become WW?

    It could be cut in a sort of reverse way to MoS where the main story flows in the past with intercut scenes from the present.

    it doesn't need flashback at all.

    Jenkins can manage the narrative chronologically, from the Amazon origin all the way to the present time.

    why do people feel the need for this movie to start at present time and do flashbacks??

    I hope not. I found the constant flashbacks slowed down the pace of MOS and made it feel like it was dragging.

    I don't feel the need at all. But wasn't it rumoured that the movie might be bookended by modern day scenes? And if that's the case, then that's why I'm wondering what might cause Diana to reflect on her origin. In the regular course of a day, if you come across something that reminds you of an earlier time, you don't end up usually reflecting on the whole of your life.

    I'm not saying we must have this device. All I'm saying is IF we do end up having it, then how can they use it.

    The movie could start with Diana narrating her origin to someone (Bruce ?) then flashbacks, then back to present day where she is searching something that leads us to the next movie JL-1.

    don't remember reading any report about this bookended thing; maybe I missed it or maybe it is as you said, a rumor.

    I like the approach described in this one; though it maybe outdated (it's before the release date change)

    http://www.cinemablend.com/new/Where-Wonder-Woman-Movie-Probably-Take-Place-86927.html

    anyway, to me, bookended for the sake of flashback and vice versa is a waste of runtime.
