Directors have a lot on their plates when making a major Hollywood film. It's basically a juggling act. But there were two key elements of Wonder Woman that Patty Jenkins continued to "hammer home" throughout the entire production, and they made all the difference for the end product.

Wonder Woman 2 isn't coming out until November 2019, but director Patty Jenkins is already starting to put the pieces into place. She's sharing a few new details on what to expect in the upcoming film, as well as how the theme of love will carry over from the last film. Hint: It's a person.

Thanks to Marvel, superhero movies and post-credit scenes basically go hand in hand. Recently, Marvel has really played with that expectation, going super excessive with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and including a knowing wink in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Welcome back to Toy Aisle, our weekly roundup of the fanciest toys that will have you even more upset you're not able to make it to the San Diego Comic-Con this year. And if you've ever lamented not having an Arnold Schwarzenegger figure that looks like he just took the day off to visit Bunnings, you'll find exactly what you're looking for this week.

We live in an age where everyone involved in one of these giant superhero movies franchises is basically made to commit as much of their lives as humanly possible to it.

Of course Wonder Woman has this scene as well, but it might just be the best one we've ever seen -- not only because it's so badass, but because it's been so, so overdue.

The release of Wonder Woman is just a few short weeks away and DC's latest film is currently screening for the media. Full reviews are still under embargo -- but tonight, Warner Bros. allowed non-spoiler reactions on social media, and they were almost overwhelmingly positive.
