This past week, a brand new Wonder Woman trailer appeared on the internet! So did a poster and some casting news! And I know it’s obviously not gonna be a queer movie, but the character is queer according to comics writers and, like, come on, the whole concept of Wonder Woman is inherently very queer. I love reading queerness into things, so I thought this week that’s what I would do. Read queerness into as many scenes of this trailer as I could.

Diana doesn’t know how to go through a rotating door while holding her sword and shield, much like a lesbian doesn’t know how to hold a conversation with her girlfriend’s second cousin Chad at the family reunion.
