Change.Org has a current petition to have Warner Bros. make DC Cinematic Universe Wonder Woman bisexual. The petition was started by Gianna Collier-Pitts, a campus ambassador for GLAAD at New York University. It opens with the following.

Earlier this summer, Warner Brothers released their latest DC Comics franchise film Wonder Woman, and women young and old finally saw an image of themselves reflected in a superhero on the big screen. WB also raked in a pretty penny with a gross of over $817 million worldwide (and counting), ranking the film as the third highest grossing film in the studio's history. Needless to say, it was a success for everyone...except the bisexual community.

It then goes on to state that Wonder Woman's bisexuality has been alluded to in the comics and long-time writer Greg Rucka has previously confirmed "Diana has been in love and had relationships with other women".

The petition ends with:

The Wonder Woman franchise is the embodiment of strength and resilience in a genre that places women as the sidekick more often than the hero. The bar is already so low when it comes to celebrating women and LGBTQ characters in a positive way, and I am tired of grasping at straws in an effort to see myself represented.

All I ask is that Warner Bros. directly acknowledge Diana Prince for who she is, who she has always been (regardless of her current love interest), and what her character could potentially represent for millions of people.

As of this writing, the petition is at 3,428 supporters.
