The blockbuster origin story brought to life by Gal Godot has been seen as a major breakthrough in the hyper-masculine world of superheroes. Directed by and starring women, it has helped break barriers. Now, as the hype around the film and it’s great success begins to slow, there’s a second breakthrough that has people talking.
It involves Eugene Brave Rock, a Canadian actor who grew up in the Blood #Tribe of Southern Alberta. He plays the role of #Chief, one of Wonder Woman’s key partners as she takes on the evil god Aries. It’s a medium-sized role that is turning Brave Rock into a major role model. Especially since his Blood Tribe heritage takes centre stage in one of the biggest movies of the year.
Eugene Brave Rock talks to q from Sacramento, Calif., about Wonder Woman , holding on to his #Indigenous roots, and how he went from being a stuntman at Disneyland Paris to being a part of the biggest movie of the summer.
