Raking in the cash and inspiring kids and women alike, Wonder Woman is a smash hit.
This success is due not only to its well-structured story and perfect cast, but also because of its fresh perspective.
As such, their nighttime liaison in Veld isn’t painted as a hesitant encounter between two beings at cross-purposes or of unequal power; it’s a tender meeting between two characters who appreciate each other for the people they are, rather than the fact they are an attractive man and woman respectively.
For this reason, it's probably one of the most significant cinematic romances in recent times.
The DCEU’s Diana remains a strong independent woman who only needs a man to help her negotiate the unfamiliar terrain of early 20th Century Europe so she can confront the God of War.
She sticks with Steve because she values his input, relating to him as a person, and not just because he’s a beefcake of a man that she wants to "try out," as it were.
Diana and Steve’s conversation in the boat scene touches on some pretty fundamental aspects of our day to day lives — namely, sex and reproduction.
It's hilarious that Diana is so blunt about these subjects whilst Steve awkwardly tiptoes around them, as he ultimately fails to provide satisfactory answers to her questions.
Wonder Woman has long been an icon of strong femininity in the male-dominated medium of comic books, and now the #superhero movie genre.Certainly, there is quite a lot that Diana and Steve have in common; as the film progresses, we realize that both characters are outsiders in some shape or form.Diana and Steve are also skilled combatants, and the two of them share a passion for justice — even if their methods and outlook do vary somewhat.The biggest laugh of the boat scene definitely occurs when Steve discovers that Amazons don’t need — or even want — men to scratch their carnal itches.In fact, Diana's new friend is visibly stunned when she proceeds to name-drop the twelve volumes of Clio’s teachings on eroticism and pleasure.
Moreover, Steve preparing separate berths for him and Diana to sleep prompts a conversation about the concepts of marriage and sexual decorum.
