Wonder Woman

Batman-Superman-movie-logo

When first announced, Batman vs. Superman seemed like the best idea since sliced bread.  By bringing together Batman and Superman on the big screen for the first time ever, Warner Bros. could basically just sit back on their laurels and count the money as it poured in.  Adding Wonder Woman was a master stroke and while those dollar signs became more clear to the studio heads, the fans’ anticipation for the Justice League launching point became almost a fever.  Like any fever, however, as the source of that fever, i.e. information about the upcoming film, became more and more scarce, public interest has waned a bit.  With the news that Marvel will be sitting out San Diego Comic-Con this year hitting the interwebs earlier today, WB has finally decided to let fans have a peek behind the curtain and has released the official synopsis for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. (more…)

Gal as Wonder Woman

You may recall that just a few days ago, filmmaker Michelle MacLaren walked away from the director’s chair on the upcoming Warner Bros./DC Entertainment live-action film version of Wonder Woman. Citing the ambiguous rationale of “creative differences,” which is about as old an excuse as it is mysterious, MacLaren’s departure from the project could be viewed as a black eye for a production slate of DC Comics-based films that has been struggling for years to come to fruition. With a 2017 release date etched in stone, the studios had to move quickly, and they have. Now, Wonder Woman has a new director, and she is also no stranger to trying to make comic book movies work despite “creative differences.” (more…)

Gal as Wonder Woman

Well, this was almost sadly inevitable, and things were going so well for Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment with Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice coming out in less than a year, and Suicide Squad building some solid hype now that productions begun… As of this morning though, there’s news that there’s now trouble in paradise, or rather on Paradise Island. The long suffering superhero franchise in waiting, Wonder Woman, must now endure another setback, and it’s an old story if you’ve been following along with the seemingly decades long attempt to make the Amazonian princess into a big screen action star. Sadly, the search for a director is on again with Michelle MacLaren out of the job. (more…)

Gal Gadot Responds To Casting Complaints

Gal as Wonder Woman

Critics have been harsh on Gal Gadot ever since she was announced to play the most recognizable heroine in history, and that’s to be expected. This is going to be the first time Princess Diana of Themyscira is going to be featured on the Silver Screen, so fans want her done justice. Gal has not taken this criticism lying down, though, and has responded to what she obviously feels are attacks on her appearance. Is she correct, or is this outcry warranted? Read on to find out.

Joss-Whedon-Wonder-Woman-Movie-Could-Work

It’s almost long forgotten and borderlines on myth at this point, but did you know that Joss Whedon had once been hired to write a Wonder Woman script? This is way before Gal Gadot was cast as the Amazonian Princess in Batman Vs Superman and whatever the heck DC/Warner Bros. has planned for their hopeful solo movies. Whedon’s Wonder Woman – or WWW for short – came before Whedon evolved into something of an unofficial “showrunner” for the Marvel cinematic universe.  Joss Whedon both understands how to write a female protagonist, as he demonstrated with Buffy, but he also had a rather successful run on the Wonder Woman comic. So WB snatched him up for Wonder Woman (2005), had him write a script, and even considered him to direct. But thanks to the piss poor performances of both Catwoman and Elektra, which were released around the same time, the project got shelved.  (more…)

The hotly-anticipated Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is a mere 14 months away, and there will be many DC fans, comic book fans – and movie fans in general – desperately awaiting the release of DC’s cinematic juggernaut. Directed by Zack Snyder (Watchmen, Superman: Man of Steel), the film is essentially a prerequisite to the Justice League movies and subsequently, the DC Cinematic Universe. Given that Snyder has now wrapped principle photography, the team behind the movie are now entering a lengthy post-production phase. It does seem like a long and tormenting wait, but luckily we have information from visual effects guru Joe Letteri, which is sure to whet your appetite. (more…)
