She refused to go see the Wonder Woman movie in the theater, but when it came out on DVD I made her watch it and she tried to hide from me how much she loved the movie. But when she went to stay at her grandparents' house she took it with her. She took it with her when she went to stay with her dad to show him the movie because he hadn't seen it.
But Wonder Woman isn't the only one she's changed her mind about. I told her before she could watch the Thor: Ragnarok movie she would need to watch Dr. Strange. She really did not want to watch it. She hated him before she even saw the movie and was determined to not change her mind. Then in the mail, a friend of mine sent some goodies for her and one of them was a Dr. Strange figure. At first, she was going to give it to me, but then she changed her mind. At Thanksgiving dinner, she was playing with her younger cousin with the figure and told him that she "kinda liked him [Dr. Strange]" and then looked over at me and said, "I wish I hadn't said that in front of my mommy." Then at the library, she asked me to check out a Dr. Strange book on tape. This is step one in my winning her back over to Marvel.
Step two. We watched Guardians of the Galaxy Volume Two. She fell in love and became obsessed. We watched it over and over again. We listen to the soundtrack all the time. She listens to it as she goes to sleep. We watch the first one, but she doesn't like it as much. Though she does love the first soundtrack as much as the second. For Christmas, she asked Santa to send her Guardians of the Galaxy figures. I've checked her out comics and books from the library for her to read and she can't wait to read them.
She refused to see Thor in the theaters because it might be scary and wanted to wait and watch it at home, but she did want to see the Justice League movie in the theaters. So we went and we were a bit disappointed. It was OK, we just expected something greater. We did agree that Wonder Woman kicked ass and Aquaman was really hot and the Flash guy was pretty cool.
I got her to read part of an Avengers X-Men comic called Axis. It got scary and she stopped. But she read the parts that weren't. This summer I took her to see Spiderman: Homecoming and she loved it. She can't wait to see Thor: Ragnarok. We'll see how she feels about seeing Infinity War when it comes out in May and I know she'll love to see Ant-Man and Wasp because she just loved Ant-Man. We watched that one more than once. And yes, we'll also see Aquaman too. I grew up with the cartoon Aquaman of the Justice League who was as useless as teats on a bull. But Jason Momoa is anything but useless. He is quite capable. So while she is still with D.C. I'm slowly bringing her over to Marvel a bit and showing her that there are things over here worth seeing.
