It feels like we've been waiting forever for Wonder Woman, the first major female superhero blockbuster film. After years of campaigning, and waiting, the year of Wonder Woman is almost here. And, with a few months left to go before the film's June 2 release date, fans are looking for movies and TV shows to watch while waiting for Wonder Woman to finally hit theaters. Because the film will be one of the first of its kind (a female-led superhero movie with a female director), it's hard to find anything that can really fill the void while we count down the days. But, these shows and movies starring kickass women should be able to make the wait for Wonder Woman a bit more bearable.
Even though fans have been deprived of female superhero movies, Hollywood has given us many awesome other kind of female protagonists to root for. Granted, not all of them are good Wonder Woman substitutes, but Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Supergirl will do the trick in a pinch. Of course, if you only want Wonder Woman to keep you entertained until June 2, you can just stick to watching old episodes of Wonder Woman and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but where's the fun in that? These 17 movies and TV shows to watch while waiting for Wonder Woman will give you a variety of empowering entertainment to get you pumped up for summer's big release.
