My good friend Ethan, of Extremist Movie Debate, asked me to fill in for his regular movie-sparring partner Joe last week. We went head-to-head over the recent release of Justice League.

Why is Wonder Woman seemingly so hard to adapt? She’s one of DC’s trinity of main characters (alongside Superman and Batman) but is the only one to not have a live-action film franchise, let alone multiple which the other 2/3’s have.
