Episode 466: Red Shiny Boots on the Ground

On the Overthinking It Podcast, we tackle the critically and commercially acclaimed reboot of Wonder Woman into DC’s Extended Universe.

Rachel D, Peter Fenzel, Mark Lee, Ryan Sheely, and Matt Wrather gather to overthink Wonder Woman‘s feminism, its humor, the comic team of Gal Gadot and Chris Pine, the philosophical message of Ares, and the difference between DC and Marvel superheroes.

Spoiler alert for all of the new Wonder Woman, and for Thucydides’ The Peloponnesian War.

    Well, actually the trope of being Stuffed into the Fridge, as I understand it, is a dysphemism for a character death that serves solely to motivate another character to seek revenge, criticized as lazy writing, rather than being related to the dying character’s own story. There were kind of two plots running parallel in this movie: one about Diana and Ares, and one about Trevor and the Chemical Weapon. Since Steve’s death is the end to the story of the chemical weapons, I would not consider it an example of being “Stuffed into the Fridge”.

      Yeah, that’s a good point. He was fulfilling something that he set out to do at the outset, and would have done even without Diana there.
