Small Details Fans Noticed About The Women Of The DCEU

List Rules
Vote up the details you missed the first time around.

Comic book movies have been a big thing in Hollywood since the first Superman film hit theaters in the '70s, and DC has been releasing similar fare ever since. In an effort to create a wider cinematic universe that includes more of its characters, DC Comics and Warner Bros. launched the DC Cinematic Universe in 2013 with Man of Steel. Some of the films that followed didn't fare as well, but the DCEU has continued pushing out films for its diehard audience and has found plenty of successes over the years.

Because comic book fans are an inquisitive and detail-oriented lot, many have looked into the DCEU's movies to find tons of small details about the women of the DCEU that most viewers missed the first time around. The fans who spotted many of those small details have taken to the MovieDetails subreddit to share their findings.

    From Redditor u/missjardinera:

    In Wonder Woman, this is the first time Diana ever accepts an offered handshake. Unless you speak the Blackfoot language (unlike other non-English dialogue, this conversation has no subtitles), you might miss that Chief then reveals to Diana his true identity: Napi, a trickster demigod.

    Sir Patrick Isn't Startled Because Diana Is A Woman, He's Startled Because He Recognizes Her True Identity

    From Redditor u/hairhair2015:

    In Wonder Woman (2017), when sir Patrick sees Diana in parliament he reacts strongly. You are meant to think that he is reacting this way because she is a woman in a place for men. He is really reacting like this because he recognizes that she is the Godkiller sent to destroy him (Ares).
