Reposting my rant about Wonder Woman:
It paints the most revisionist picture of WW1 I've ever seen with the typical "it was all duh GeRMaNs fault, BrITaIN GOOD DUH" which isn't true. Everyone involved in WW1 was equally an imperialist pig and believing that the Central Powers were the worse somehow despite the "good" guys starving something close to 2 million German civilians is baffling and just modern western media/history trying to paint their winning side as the good guys. Not saying that Germany WEREN'T the bad guys, just that if you're gonna criticize one imperialist power in a pointless war you gotta call the rest out for it as well.
I always see modern media streamline WW1 and make imperial Germans into basically 'nazies' even though those are two different time periods and screenwriters should actually read a book 'cause history is better at writing interesting and engaging tales than they are. Oh and also the whole "wonder woman" thing being shoved down the audiences throat with one of the most pointless and horrifying wars in human history into a consumerized, comedic, shallow-fem rights film that manages to make the superhero female lead somehow less important than the actual women who took part in the conflict.

Also an interesting part is how in the posters (pic related) the tank Wonder Woman lifts is a T-28, a Soviet medium tank that was created 17 years after WW-1. Feels like some-kind of anti-soviet shit, though more likely its just inattentive graphic designers.
