It’s a shocking revelation but all the Amazons in the Wonder Woman movie are real-life Wrestlers and Olympians. Okay, now for the people who did not watch Wonder Woman please get yourself to a movie theater immediately. Because once there, you’ll meet the most kick-ass group of women cinema has ever showcased, wherein known as the Amazons of Themyscira.
Undoubtedly, the Amazons’ fight scenes were some of the best moments in the Wonder Woman movie. But what is more awesome to know is the fact that director Patty Jenkins cast was not just an ordinary cast but selective individuals from a pool of pro-athletes. She actually picked real-life superheroes including American Crossfit champion Brooke Ence and Swedish professional fighter Madeleine Vall Beijner.
And do you know what’s the most interesting part? The group got training for weeks in London and actually had to learn to be *less* badass. Isn’t it cool!!!!!

This movie was a true showcase of Woman Empowerment and we desperately hope to see such movies again too.
