I’ve heard that there’s a petition to make Diana bisexual in Wonder Woman 2. This is already a canon fact from the comics, but what do you think about that?
That’s an interesting question!
I know Diana was stated to be officially bisexual years ago, and I think the only concern I have is, is it natural for her to be bi in WW84 or would it appear cheap?
I believe they could pull this off at some point and I know Gal would be okay with it too. But it makes me worried about the ‘tragic gay’ trope that plagues media – would her female love interest meet a terrible ending, since we know how detached Diana was in BvS?
I don’t think that the way Diana is written right now would really honour a romantic relationship she would have with any woman. I will say that once they move beyond her past and bring the JLA into the future, it is possible. The DCEU is it’s own universe entirely and I know that both Gal (and Patty, if she were to direct a storyline like this) would give it time to breathe.
All in all, I’m down for it, I just want to see it fit seamlessly into a story and should the relationship end, it’s because of a falling out and not by perpetuating a terrible trope… I hope that answers the question! ~ Maiden
