Support Off Screen on Patreon ►► https://www.patreon.com/offscreen Join our Discord community ► https://discord.gg/YPVWjd2wgd Wonder Woman is the perfect example of how The Hero's Journey can be flipped onto its head — taking a feminine viewpoint that contradicts many of the lessons learned by male heroes in legends past — yet still retain the essential core of what this classic mythological structure is about.

A more apt word would have been "practiced." • The shot of Luke staring out to sea after his rescue from Cloud City is inaccurately attributed to The Last Jedi. It is from The Force Awakens. • David Fuchs name appears twice in the credits by mistake. The second should have gone to Zach Rosenlund for the music.
