Wonder Woman: The Hero We All Needed
Chris McCoy writes for the Memphis Flyer about Patty Jenkins, director of the 2017 Wonder Woman, who comes to change the image of a strong and powerful man as the stereotypical hero that has been engrained in people’s brains.
Joseph Campbell published The Hero With A Thousand Faces in 1949, and since then, various writers and filmmakers have used his work as a formula to create stories. There are various steps to the journey, a villain, sacrifice, near death experiences and a hero. A male hero.
