** When the team returns back to No Man's Land, the entire battalion starts cheering loudly when they see Chief, clapping his back and shouting his name, with one soldier even embracing him in joy. Although Chief and his people lost practically everything in the Indian Wars and the genocide that went with it, it's nice to see that there are places where people accept him.

** It's brought back up shortly after, in an equally heartwarming way, when Charlie's the only one of the mercs who is hesitant to continue on. Not because of the lack of money, but because he thinks he doesn't have it in him any more to help how they need. Diana's response, with an incredibly sincere smile? "But who will sing for us?" Doubles with Moment of Funny with Steve's and Sameer's [[OhCrap reaction]].

*** The so-called rivalry is likely just for show, at least these days. Remember that comic book readers are a small fraction of the greater movie-going audience, whom largely do not distinguish much difference between Marvel and DC. When one company is doing poorly, it can affect the reception of the other company's product, and Internet think pieces about 'superhero fatigue' start making the rounds again. That cuts the other way too; "A rising tide lifts all boats."

** Later on, while some inevitably tried to turn it into a FandomRivalry, as both films are their respective franchise's first solo superheroine vehicles, the ''Wonder Woman'' and ''Film/CaptainMarvel2019'' crews' genuine support for one another is touching. In particular, ''Captain Marvel'' lead actress Creator/BrieLarson has openly gushed about being a big Wonder Woman fangirl growing up and that she cried TearsOfJoy when seeing the movie, and Gal Gadot herself congratulated ''Captain Marvel'''s success by posting a piece of fanart with Diana and Carol together on her social media.



* Doubling with FridgeBrilliance: Mitsuishi Kotono, the voice of ''Franchise/SailorMoon'', being the one to narrate Wonder Woman's trailer. One gets the feeling Tsukino Usagi would get along very well with Diana of Themyscira. Both are superhuman warrior princesses who start out as {{Wide Eyed Idealist}}s and refuses to let go of their belief in the good of humanity even in the face of love, loss, and {{Breaking Speech}}es. Their outfits are slightly impractical for battle, but not canonically sexualized for the MaleGaze. ''Diana'' is the Roman name of ''Artemis''- there are two characters by those names in ''Sailor Moon'' canon, both are allies of Usagi's. Both have love interests who are massively outclassed by them, but never intimidated by that fact. And both believes in ThePowerOfLove, kindness, and empathy being the keys to saving the world, repeatedly so. The heartwarming factor here is that there is still room for gentle-but-strong figures like Diana and Usagi to inspire others in the cultural landscape of an increasingly dark and cynical world.

Added DiffLines:

* Seeing Lynda Carter, the original Wonder Woman, and Gal Gadot together, with Lynda praising the film and Gal's performance at every opportunity. Gal even calls her "Mama Bear".

** Less comedic, but when Diana angrily stands up in Parliament and chastises the generals present for making cowardly compromises and reducing men to numbers instead of fighting on the front lines with their warriors, a few of the old-men are visibly shaken with shame, showing that even ''they'' secretly long for a nobler, kinder age of honor. ([[FridgeBrilliance Perhaps because most of them are old enough to remember, or even to have fought in, wars that didn't end with millions dead and battles that didn't end in year-long stalemates for both sides.]])

* Someone working at a kindergarten wrote a list of things that happened after kids went to see this movie. One of the producers sent it to Patty Jenkins, [[https://twitter.com/PattyJenks/status/874034832430424065?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw&ref_url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.huffingtonpost.fr%2F2017%2F06%2F13%2Fwonder-woman-fait-reagir-les-enfants-de-maternelle_a_22139187%2F who then posted it on Twitter and commented on it]]. Some of the things listed also count as [[FunnyMoments being funny]].

** Might also count as {{Nightmare Fuel}} when considering the numerous closeups of the victims of the war in general, and Dr. Poisons gas experiments in particular that these tiny children also have to have seen.


* Diana's [[{{Adorkable}} kind and awkward sincerity]] when facing the modern world for the first time is quite adorable. Standout moments include.

** When Diana asks Steve why some men and women are holding hands as they walk, he tells her it's because they're "together". Without hesitation, Diana tries holding Steve's hand. As naive as Diana was at that point, it's also clear she was letting Steve know that she likes him.


* Bruce Wayne dedicated time and most likely no small expense to track down and find the original 1918 group photo, and had it delivered by nothing less than an armored courier to Diana at her workplace (the Louvre museum in Paris). It's immensely thoughtful of him, and it shows how strong the bonds within the Film/{{Justice League|2017}} will be.

* [[https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/wonder_woman_2017 The reviews are out from Rotten Tomatoes. And oh boy, the fans are very pleased.]] It's truly a ThrowTheDogABone to the DCEU itself, and surely a moral boost to its fans after the divisive reception of the previous films.

* Young Diana is [[TheCutie adorable]] and ConstantlyCurious, dreaming of becoming a warrior like the other Amazons. And Hippolyta is a [[GoodParents good parent]] with her, educating her well and telling her stories about the gods and the gifts they gave to the Amazons. Antiope meanwhile is a CoolAunt and secretely teaches her how to fight.
