On last week’s episode of Your World With Neil Cavuto, pundits Dion Baia, Mike Gunzelman and Cavuto debated if Wonder Woman took an “un-American” turn. Cavuto pointed out that Wonder Woman’s costume wasn’t red, white and blue in the movie, and noted that “in order to appeal for foreign audiences, [it has] very little reference to America at all.”
Baia said “money” is the reasoning behind the lack of patriotism in Wonder Woman. “I think, nowadays, sadly, money trumps patriotism. Especially, recently, I personally feel like we’re not really very patriotic, the country, in a certain sense. They want these movies to succeed internationally, so they’re going to dial back.”
However, after media outlets caught wind of the comments, many claimed that the correspondent seemed “upset.” Baia took to Twitter to clear the air, tweeting:
Guest Mike Gunzelman agreed with Baia’s point of view, saying that he feels “it’s cool to hate America these days.”
But Wonder Woman‘s costume designer Linda Hemming told the Telegraph, “I like to make people believe when I’m working on something that it’s possible that someone would dress like this. It needed to be modern and realistic. While she’s still got a lot of skin on show, she’s at least got a solid-looking shield, rather than a flimsy piece of rope attached.”
