Alamo Drafthouse Is Doing a “Women-Only” Screening of 'Wonder Woman,' and Dudes Are Very Mad Online

Wonder Woman has always been considered one of the most important feminist icons of all time, and the upcoming film marks the character's first solo outing on the big screen.

"Women only?" one guy wrote.

Women are so desperate to not be treated like walking fuck dolls by the media that they are buying out this probably shitty movie faster than the theater chain can hold screenings.

The Alamo Drafthouse in Austin has since added a second screening, and in a statement to Mashable, indicated they would be expanding the special screenings to several Drafthouse theatres across the US.

With fangirls (and, yes, fanboys) eagerly anticipating the cinematic debut of "Wonder Woman", a US movie chain is serving up a women-only screening of the female-empowering superhero flick.

Despite the kerfuffle, the theater isn't backing down. The Alamo screenings are billed as a chance for a few of Wonder Woman's many female fans to gather together in "celebration of one of the most enduring and inspiring characters ever created". The Hulk has had at least three different films so far, each with different actors, and Spider-Man is on his third franchise in a decade, with at least one sequel already guaranteed.

While this too will be hard , McConnell said, it is "not in my view quite as challenging as healthcare ". On the other hand, he said, prospects for passage of major tax legislation were "pretty good".

A cinema chain in the United States sold out its first ever women-only session in a matter of hours, but is now facing a boycott by some angry men. We've had trilogies for Blade, Captain America, Thor, and Iron Man, among countless others. "This is awesome!" read another comment.

"We'd hug you", the Alamo responded, "but the internet hasn't made that possible yet".

However, the Drafthouse's decision has already been validated by ticket sales.

To be fair, while there are plenty of men crying foul over the women-only Wonder Woman screenings, many evolved, secure men have spoken out in favor of the screenings, taking down the naysayers in the process. North Kansas City's Screenland Armour theater is planning an opening night party on June 1 complete with Wonder Woman cosplayers and tiki drinks.

Wonder Woman arrives in theaters everywhere on June 2.
