It turns out Fox News host Neil Cavuto and his guests on Friday had a major issue with Wonder Woman.
During a panel discussion, the “Your World with Neil Cavuto” host and his guests questioned the patriotism of the current version of the legendary DC Comics character.
“‘Wonder Woman’ is out in theatres right now. Some are calling it less American because her outfit isn’t red, white and blue — and, in order to appeal for foreign audiences, [it has] very little reference to America at all,” Cavuto said.
For the record, Wonder Woman is an Amazonian warrior princess who is on a quest to protect all of humankind (not just Americans).
“I think, nowadays, sadly, money trumps patriotism,” guest Dion Baia said. “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.”
Guest Mike Gunzelman added: “I think the Hollywood aspect, we see this time and time again, it’s cool to hate America these days.”
It seems Cavuto and his guests are in the minority in the US about how people feel about this new Wonder Woman, played by Gal Gadot, who is Israeli.
“Wonder Woman,” which opened in theatres on Friday, could earn $US100 million its opening weekend.
