It's just as true that she herself is raped by the same definition. Kinda, but not really, but kinda.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.

Functionally speaking, yes.

Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty

So yeah, it's super fucked up and pretty gross. Also contributes to Wonder Woman again being portrayed as a stupid emotional baby who should really just listen to the big strong man she's obsessed with because she keeps ruining everything with her gosh darn emotions. It's really fucking awesome that this message appeared in both of these movies!

But Wonder Woman was the person initiating this and obviously consented. The only person who couldn't consent here was the original person.

Sex with someone who is not who you think they are is legally rape (well, probably not everywhere, but it still is), so they're both victims - the guy isn't the one pretending to be Steve, sure, but there's still deception about his identity. And following that logic, Diana isn't the one doing the raping of the guy if she doesn't know it's not Steve ('s body). They're victims of the bad guy. When does she become aware it's not him ?

Immediately.
Honestly? Did you not read the colony policy?
That defines you as company property?
That waivers your say in autonomy?
The conglomerate’s got you in lock and key
We put the dollar back into idolatry
If you’re upset you can rent an apology
We are a family forged in bureaucracy
No I in ‘team’ but there’s con in ‘economy’
Were you expecting adventure?
Were you hoping for fun?
My friend you’re indentured
And pleasure’s exempt from your tenure
So venture back down to your slum
That's provided at generous prices
Your worth is determined by your sacrifices

I'll give them that, it was a really cool trailer! The music, the editing, it promised so much!

... which probably made the actual movie sting worse :foreveralone:

Would it have been better if they actually had Circe as the villain instead of an evil Dragonball?

The movie's issues have nothing to do with the premise or the villains, in fact I dare say that the lion share of anything I actually like about it comes from Pedro Pascal

Circe, Dr. Psycho, Silver Swan, it does not matter if you've got problems at the script, direction and editing level

For example the movie has two opening action scenes, and the first one does nothing but remind you that Diana came from a mystical island and give a literal statement of the half-baked moral of the movie

It could be cut and nothing would be lost but 20 minutes off a bloated runtime

Immediately.
Okay, so let me get this straight then: they made Wonder Woman, THE Wonder Woman, you know, one of the greatest superheroes of all time and the most iconic female superhero ever... a rapist. I hate all of this...

Not that I've seen this movie yet, but considering the DCEU's trend for being edgy, this is just par for the course.  Just disappointing to hear the first WW was their one-off good movie, second depending which side of the fence you sit on with Man of Steel and if you count inoffensively forgettable Shazam. (Besides that one Alien scene which is still literally the only part of the movie I can recall)

Going off Jmorphman's spoiler, I'd assume that the reason they went this way with the guy but the rules being different for other inanimate objects was probably explained at one point and left on the cutting room floor.  Being explained doesn't really solve the issue, though.  I suppose they should have had the two psyches fighting it out for control of the body so original dude can voice his opinion in on the matter, Bruce Banncer/Hulk style?  Or just have him be a voice inside Steve's head at the very least.  Minor change to solve a lot of issues.  It's magic, cursed monkey paw magic at that designed to have unforeseen consequences, that's about all the explanation you really need to make that fit into the story.

Honestly, they could have solved the issue by simply making WW unaware that it was another guy and then having it revealed to her later on as the "bad side" of the wish.

The movie definitely doesn't mean to imply what it implies, and I suspect they were going for a Big (as in the Tom Hanks movie) or Mannequin type of whimsical 80s fantasy romance thing, but it just doesn't work at all the way they thought it was going to.

Honestly the movie was great. Pascal killed it. Stole the show for me.

So hey.  Zack Snyder's Justice League is out now.  Anyone catch it?  Does anyone smile in it?

Or to put that in a less snide way, does it impress at all for someone who already doesn't like the DCEU's gloom and doom and general Snyder grittiness? I imagine it's if nothing else a more complete package than the 2017 movie, but I couldn't comment one way or another with firsthand knowledge; my interest was already evaporated with the first release and didn't see it back then.

I see general reviews are still cult-ish and tribal side versus side, calling for Whedon to be burned at the stake and whatnot or Snyder being a hack.  You know, fanboy reviews.  My take is everything surrounding the film sounds great, let a director fulfill his vision unclouded by corporate meddling, all profits go to suicide prevention, etc., all good things.  I just....abhor his direction and vision and it being the new public face of the company at large.

His version of JL is everything you've come to expect from Zack Snyder, which means if you don't like HIM and "his craft", you probably won't like this one. He indulges heavily in Slow Motion, and wants absolutely everything to look majestic and larger than life ... which, when you're green lit for a 4 hour cut, you can totally abuse.

In the end, it feels like a completely different movie than 2017's Josstice League, it's hella more fleshed out and satisfying, but it takes a very long time to get to the GOOD STUFFTM
