Some women-only screenings planned for 'Wonder Woman'

Gal Gadot plays Wonder Woman.   Warner Bros

The Amazon warrior princess is a true icon, which made the moment when current Wonder Woman Gal Gadot ran into Lynda Carter on the red carpet at the world premiere of the superhero's first big screen outing all the more special. Keep crying those salty tears.While some men expressed support for the screening, many others took to the theater's Facebook page to express their disgust at being excluded.

The offer of special screenings began recently in Austin, Texas, where Alamo Drafthouse Cinema has previously held specialty screenings for military veterans and others.

Gal Gadot, who plays the title character, had slid into a black gown that not only flashed quite a bit of cleavage, but also bared part of her midriff.

Alamo Drafthouse - which was founded in Austin in 1997 - has never shied away from provocative marketing and public political stances that embody the city's countercultural spirit.

"Very tacky Alamo", added another. "I really want you all to embrace this".

Now, it seems like Marvel director Reed joined in the outrage and posted a humorous tweet taking a dig at the whole fury by saying, "Just wait until I announce the insect-only screenings of ANT-MAN AND THE WASP". Even the theater staff will be all women.

Proceeds from certain screenings are going toward Planned Parenthood. "Again, truly, truly, truly, truly sorry that we've offended you".

Another critic wrote: "Have you ever had a men's only showing of any film?" Jenkins, who is perhaps best known for her work in the critically-acclaimed Monster, further defended Wonder Woman's status as a feminist icon despite some claiming that the heroine was not suited to be a role model for girls due to her raunchy outfit.

Chris Pine pointed out that quite often viewers are given stories told through the narrative of a male and in his mind, "men are not all that smart".

"So it's hard to just pick one, but I would love to explore the early years of her in man's world".
