But because this is Comic-Con, the presence of comics creators helped divert conversation into comic book character discussion — Erin Manzo tells us that and Weir suggested that the Wonder Woman movie may set a bad example for little girls. A controversial opinion in the room, he was asked to justify that opinion:
“They may think more good DC movies are coming.”
