LET ME POINT OUT OF THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS SCENE:
Here, Captain America - a hero in this film - is standing still while three other kinds of heroes, rush around to do thier job. (this is in no way bashing Cap, he is simply standing still at this moment, most likely in shock/fatigue). A soldier, a BLACK COP and two firemen. While American’s super soldier is immobilized, our every day heroes are still fighting to ensure safety and peace. The fact that Marvel created this moment in thier film, a film focused on the heroes, speaks yet again to thier message that you don’t have to be a super, to be super.
The teachers are looking at me funny after show and tell last week. The letter of the week was W and Gypsy took a Wonder Woman figure in. But it was her spiel that saw a few eyebrows go up. "This is Wonder Woman. She is an awesome hero. Her real name is Diana and she is princess like Cinderella and Anna except Diana is a princess of the Amazons. Her mummy Hippo-eater made her out of magic clay."
I can’t actually remember ever telling her about Hippolyta (not Hippo-eater) and most of what I have said about Wonder Woman has been in passing but I am kind of proud at how much she’s somehow picked up.
Not bad for a five-year-old.
