My review of the Justice League movie is going to have a few spoilers below. Be warned. Proceed at your own risk. All that good stuff.
I’ve been reading comics most of my life, so I’m pretty familiar with Wonder Woman. I’ve also read about comics a lot, so I know the broad strokes of Professor Marston’s life. When I heard about the movie, I was curious enough to check it out, and today I got the chance to.

Oh DCEU, why are they writing you this way? I just don’t get it.
