While the previous trailers for DC’s upcoming Wonder Woman film have been met with a lot of praise, the latest trailer has caused some controversy amongst certain viewers on the net. Their problem is with Wonder Woman’s shaven armpits. That’s right, the internet is making a big noise about the Wonder Woman armpit scenes. But don’t worry, we’ve added her armpit hair back just for you!
At around the 1.40 mark of the trailer, actress Gal Gadot raises her arms to expose her hairless armpits (which some believe have been digitally bleached in postproduction). This caused quite a stir as many people believe that an Amazonian princess wouldn’t shave her armpits at all.
“Is this seriously still happening in 2017,” cried Slate Magazine.
“Do better!” said Revelist.
“[Wonder Woman] proves that women—even those who are superheroes—don’t have to cater to beauty standards that are meant to make them more attractive to men,” shouted Refinery29.
However, fans have noted that Wonder Woman has never had armpit hair in the comic books. Secondly, the film is also set during World War 1, a period where women started shaving their armpits. To be honest, this whole thing is a big fuss over nothing.
