As noted by LogicDictates, those look like photo slides, a technique involving turning photographs into positive image transparencies that can be viewed either using a projector to shine light through them and project them on a wall, or via a slide viewer.

According to various articles I've checked, the director, Patty Jenkins, and the cinematographer, Matthew Jensen, wanted to shoot the entire film in IMAX format with a 1.90:1 aspect ratio. However, that proved impractical for both financial and logistical reasons, so it was decided to shoot only the opening and closing scenes with 65 mm IMAX cameras, while ...

In short, she doesn't. She's describing the process of making something invisible, something that her father did with Themyscira, and she's stating that she's only done that process once, with a coffee cup. Diana: My father hid Themyscira from the world, and I’ve been trying to learn how he did it. Steve: Did what? Diana: Made something invisible. But in 50 ...

His line is racist because it's making a joke about East-Asian people's stereotypical love for cellophane noodles. It would be similar to making a crass joke about Jamaican people breaking the 'grass' ceiling (e.g. because of their supposed love of cannabis) or French people breaking the 'wineglass' ceiling (e.g. because of their supposed love of wine). ...

I don't think he did grant Barbara's second wish. At least, not using his actual 'wish-granting' power. About midway through the film, it's stated that the Dreamstone takes a person's most valued possession from them, in return for granting their wish. STEVE: What? What is it? DIANA: Dechalafrea Ero. STEVE: What's that? DIANA: A very bad God. The God of ...

Max reuniting with Alistair at the end had nothing to do with Alistair's wish for him to come back. Alistair had already wished for his father's greatness in an earlier scene. MAX: Alistair! I've missed you, buddy. Come. Sit down with Daddy. I'm sorry. But, your dad is on the absolute precipice of everything. Remember when I told you that I would be number ...

This is Black Lightning Vol 1. #5, published in November 1977. It was the final part of a three-part storyline, running through Black Lightning Vol 1. #3-5, but Superman only made a full appearance in this issue (he cameoed on the last page of the previous issue as well).

She is described on one wiki as having a keen intellect, that allowed her to enhance the device to control far more rats than her father ever could. There is nothing to suggest it is ...

Barbara's eyesight did improve. In a later scene (just before Diana introduces her to Steve Trevor), Barbara said her eyesight had been cured, and stopped wearing glasses from that point forward. BARBARA: So I did read about four books last night... to try to get to the bottom of this. And I did find out, Roger, you were right. This is from the Song Dynasty....

The Emir wished for all his ancestral lands to be returned to him, and for all the people he regarded as heathens to be kept out forever. He didn't know this wish was actually going to come true when he made it, but it did, and that wall was presumably the means of keeping the "heathens" out. MAX: Tell me what you wish for, Your Highness, and I ...

The "lies" are the shortcut of the transformation bestowed by the wish. Diana is echoing words from Antiope after she took a shortcut to win the Themysciran games as a child. In the film's introductory Themyscira sequence, a young Diana receives a hard lesson in life and competition from her aunt and instructor, Antiope. After taking a shortcut to ...
