Here’s your first look at a new comic book documentary called “Wonder Woman! The Unlold Story of American Superheroines.”
From the official synopsis:
WONDER WOMEN! THE UNTOLD STORY OF AMERICAN SUPERHEROINES traces the fascinating evolution and legacy of Wonder Woman. From the birth of the comic book superheroine in the 1940s to the blockbusters of today, WONDER WOMEN! looks at how popular representations of powerful women often reflect society’s anxieties about women’s liberation. WONDER WOMEN! goes behind the scenes with Lynda Carter, Lindsay Wagner, comic writers and artists, and real life superheroines such as Gloria Steinem, Shelby Knox and others who offer an enlightening and entertaining counterpoint to the male dominated superhero genre.
For Wonder Woman enthusiasts and comic book fans, the documentary is less about comics, and more about sociological inside into the role strong female action heroes played in transforming society’s fears of women and their liberation. “Wonder Woman! The Unlold Story of American Superheroines” is set to premiere at SXSW
