I'm completely lost on this one, and I'm not sure why, but it seems as if Arrow showrunner Marc Guggenheim is accusing Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. of ripping off Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman pose from Elektra.

Today saw new images of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman released, with one similar to her Batman Vs. Superman pose -- the one that Zack Snyder showed her how to do.

Well, Marc Guggenheim posted the pic on Twitter next to a Marvel Comics cover of Elektra adding, "Hmm," which obviously implies that he must think Elektra did the pose first?

Fans reacted and replied to Guggenheim, who was quick to follow up his tweet with, "Jeez, people. You're reading an 'implication' here where none was intended. Calm down."

None was intended? Again, I'm lost, but why then post the pic with "Hmm?" Could it be because Guggenheim is currently writing Agents of SHIELD for Marvel -- which happens to include Elektra??

In the tweets that followed from the fans, they all noted how much Guggenheim himself has ripped off borrowed from Batman for his Arrow show. We can also add in X-Men's Magneto, Nolan's Dark Knight movies and Oracle as well.

Regarding the Wonder Woman pose? Guess what? Wonder Woman did it first.

It almost makes you wonder with the other DC TV shows rising in popularity and Arrow declining, if Guggenheim's days on Arrow (and Legends of Tomorrow) are numbered...
