Here’s an excerpt from the Podcast: Is the Wonder Woman movie a Captain America movie clone?

Michael Dolce: Alright what do we want to talk about, do we want to talk about the Wonder Woman Captain America thing? Lot of people are saying that Wonder Woman is the exact copy of Captain America.

Hassan Godwin: In context of this conversation a lot of people are saying, that Wonder Woman is the female connotation of Captain America.

M- Alright this is what wanna know Star Wars unleashed “it is not a direct copy if she didn’t have super powers from the military.” I think people are just saying they basically took the structure of Captain America to turn it into Wonder woman. Well they specifically changed the war so that it wouldn’t copy Captain America.

H- I think what does it for everybody is the shield. Wonder Woman is shamelessly stealing the shield.

M- Is it really just the shield? Its a period piece taken during war, she’s bringing peace and hope to those that lost it. and that was the same thing as Captain america

H- Her idea was to bring hope however, she got the dose of reality and realized she couldn’t bring hope to the hopeless. Whereas Captain America just wanted to fight and wound up bringing hope to the hopeless. One actually brought hope, the other didn’t but both went against their intentions.

M- True, “Star Wars Unleashed” chimed in and said “Wonder Woman shouldn’t really have a shield she has bracelets.”

ABOUT OUR GUEST: Sarah Walton

WHAT DO YOU DO? (Brief bio, credits and how you like to be referred to on air. Think Twitter Bio)

I’m a business mentor for women, specifically those in corporate who want to climb higher, those who’ve chosen to stay home and now want to start something, or entrepreneurs who are looking to take it to the next level. I’m also an author and speaker.

WHAT DO YOU GOT GOING ON THESE DAYS? (Help us promote your stuff with some info)

I’m launching a course about women and money and I’m speaking all over the nation. I’m also running masterminds for small groups of women over the summer to stay focused and disciplined while finding time to enjoy the summer months. Perfect for Wonder Woman, no? 😉

GOT AN OPINION? (We dig hot button issues in the industry and would be happy to hear your take)

Yep. It’s time for women to start kicking butts and taking names when it comes to money. We now we get paid about .77 cents on the dollar, so until the rest of the world catches up, it’s on us to make sure we remove that gap. We’re seeing a colossal collapse of faith in institutions right now, and that means that communities are turning more and more to women. We have to stop pretending like we “don’t get” money or acting like it’s OK and playing nice when we need to be standing up for each other and ourselves. (It’s much more fun to talk about with me in person, I promise!)

GOT AN OPINION? (You better if you’re coming on our show!)

Not a big fan at all of what DC is doing with their movies when it comes to the directors cut Blu-Ray releases. Basically if the movie was bad at the box office, they use the excuse of “wait until you see the directors cut. So many things we had to cut out”. Feels like a cop out to me for a bad movie and it feels like we are getting to the age of DLC for movies.
