Warner Brothers is celebrating the start of production on Wonder Woman 1984 by debuting two first look photos from the highly anticipated superhero sequel.
Patti Jenkins got the ball rolling with a tweet of an image that confirms Chris Pine is returning as Steve Trevor. Then Gal Gadot tweeted an image of herself in front of a bank of TVs with 80s images.
In addition to Gadot and Pine, the sequel’s cast includes Pedro Pascal and Kristen Wiig in the role of the super-villain The Cheetah.
Patty Jenkin‘s Wonder Woman continues to march onward and Warner Bros. knows when to back a winner even if they didn’t know it would be a winner while in production. Gal Godat‘s popularity as the Amazonian Princess Diana Prince is riding a wave and Warner Bros. is ready and willing to capitalize on it by shifting some of the Justice League focus onto Wonder Woman. Check out the latest Synopsis below. (more…)
Now, this shouldn’t come as a big surprise to anyone, but this was pretty much Wonder Woman’s weekend. Given that the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) has been considered “curse,” and also the fact that many didn’t consider the film about the Amazonian princess to be marketed that much a little while ago, there was the possible fear that it would not be as successful as studio heads hoped. Rest assured, Wonder Woman was a powerhouse! The first DCEU film that was critically and commercially successful (scoring a 93% rating on Rotten Tomatoes: a tie with Iron Man and The Dark Knight), it cleaned up shop this weekend at the Box Office.
As one of the founding members of the Justice League, Princess Diana of Themyscira has been one of pop culture’s most influential heroines for decades.

This week marks the release of her first solo film under the DCEU. The Amazon princess and immortal warrior has become an iconic role model for woman the world over. (more…)
Word is making the Internet rounds that Grand Cinemas of Lebanon has banned Warner Bros. and director Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman from screening in the country. Last week a protest group Campaign to Boycott Supporters of Isreal-Lenanon started a movement to ban the film because its star Gal Gadot is an Israeli and former soldier. Lebanon is at war with Israel and Lebanese law prohibits Lebanese citizens from traveling or having contact with Israelis. Today Grand Cinema tweeted confirmation that the film has been banned from screening in Lebanon. (more…)

Can the first female lead superhero movie live up to the hype and do the Themysciran princess justice? Well, a smart person would wait to make an informed decision by watching the movie first, but for that you have to wait till June 2nd.
Anyway, here’s that final trailer: (more…)
If you’ve been wondering why Wonder Woman, the forth coming Warner Bros. movie featuring not only the 75 year old character’s first big screen solo effort but also arguably the biggest female lead superhero film ever (sorry 2005’s Elektra,) seems to be a little light in the promotional department well you are not alone. It really does feel like the film is getting less attention marketing wise than the previous DCEU outing, the much loved and maligned Suicide Squad, or even Justice League which doesn’t come out till this November.
Well, with a little over a month away till the Themyscira Princess’ movie hits theatres, the latest episode of FOX’s Gotham dropped a new TV spot for the film. (more…)
