I had a similar experience--adored it upon the first viewing but started to see cracks in subsequent viewings. I grew up on the TV series Wonder Woman starring Lynda Carter, so I am familiar with many of the issues that the 1970s TV series also shares with the 21st century movie. Yet I can't help still clinging to one of the few female-helmed superhero stories. Do any of your choices for your syllabus center women? My guess is they don't. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Black Widow might be better, but not holding my breath.
