"Wonder Woman" sparked outrage in Austin. A group of Men grew upset because one theater scheduled a "women-only" screening. The Alamo Drafthouse announced the special screening for "Wonder Woman" at the Alamo Ritz on their website and Facebook page. It cited that it would be "embracing girl power" on June 6, when there would be a "no guys allowed" policy at the venue. The theater also announced that those working during that night would be an all-women team, from the kitchen staff, to the service crew, to the projectionist for the movie. It considered "all-women" to also include people who identify as women.

Where's the 'men-only' screening?

Following the announcement, men flocked to the theater's Facebook page demanding a separate "men-only" screening when the new "Spider-Man" movie is released.

"“Let’s see you walk the walk now that you set this precedence," one person wrote. Some questioned the marketing ploy for "Wonder Woman," despite tickets being sold out. They said it did not promote equality and inclusivity.

Is it really discrimination?

Others, however, said the uproar was unnecessary; that this wasn't about a social injustice against men becoming victims given how white male privilege prevails in Hollwyood and in America in general.

The Alamo quickly issued an apology to those who were offended, but it won't be scrapping the scheduled "Wonder Woman" event. The management said the women-only screening is "to celebrate a character who’s meant a great deal to women for close to eight decades." In response to the outcry, Alamo will actually be adding more women-only screenings across its other venues, such as Dallas and DC.

About 'Wonder Woman'

"Wonder Woman" starring Gal Gadot, is based on the DC comic book heroine. It will feature the background and origin of Diana, the Amazonian princess, who belongs to a tribe of fierce female warriors living in peaceful Themyscira.

One day, a World War I airman, Steve Trevor (played by Chris Pine) reaches the island and brings news of a grim event happening around the globe. The Amazonians believe their old enemy, Ares, is behind the war. Diana leaves Themyscira to join Steve and put an end to the war. The events in "Wonder Woman" happen a hundred years before last year's "Batman V. Superman" starring Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill.

Early reviews for the movie have so far been mostly positive. The movie officially opens on June 2 in America and June 1 in Europe.
