Wonder Woman

RadioBastard Episode 147 Batman v Superman


Now that protests have finally died down, now that our customary 3 week spoiler silence ended, now that Jeremy finally had 5 minutes to toss the whole random grab bag of a podcast together, we are now ready to share the 90 minute conversation on the 151 minute big screen edition of the 75 year build up to the battle between the world’s greatest 4 color titans (that lasts about 8 minutes.)

MILD SPOILER ALERT: Jeremy, Jason, and Matt talk in depth(ish) about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice so this will spoil it for you if you are one of the few who have yet to take in billion dollar (let’s call it) divisive blockbuster that no one can seem to agree upon. Is it the greatest movie ever? The worst? Is it fever dream of a mad space-god-turtle? The guys are not here to convince you of any of that. What you will hear is a little exploration in the highs, the lows, and expansive middles the movie had to offer. (more…)

There are some new on location pictures of the currently shooting Wonder Woman movie directed by Patty Jenkins (Monster). The pictures were taken at an undisclosed beach location in Italy last Thursday and give a look at the first meeting on Themyscira, better known as Paradise Island, between pilot Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) and the Amazonian Princess Diana (Gal Gadot). Along with these are a couple featuring the horse riding Amazonians attacking a group of German soldiers. (more…)

Straight from the island of Themyscira comes a look at Wonder Woman‘s Amazon companions. These aren’t just the run of the mill Amazons though, these are the women that will help teach, train, and shape Princess Diana (Gal Gadot) into the woman who will become the greatest female warrior of the ages. Not only do you get a look at their costumes, director Patty Jenkins (Monster) discusses how that look came about. (more…)

Superhero nerds everywhere have recently been pelted with the mysterious announcement of the REBIRTH event, following a short teaser video that hints at a larger crisis which is probably heading toward New 52‘s way. While there has been no confirmation on whether or not this event will rework the DC continuity (Crisis-style), there has been some rampant speculation regarding the presence of a lot of Silver-Age heroes in the teaser’s line-up. The mystery is soon to be resolved, however, as the publisher recently went ahead to announce their full comic book line up for the duration of the event…

You can’t stop a lucrative thing from churning out sequels. Whether you love or hate Michael Bay‘s approach to cashing in on 80’s nostalgia, the Transformers movies are a definite hit and as such, have already planned ahead for 3 more sequels, scheduled to hit theaters in 2017, 2018 and 2019 respectively. However, according to Hasbro, a fourth film has currently been greenlighted, to tell the stand-alone tale of one of the second most famous Autobot…

DC Comics is doing its best to play catch-up in the world of “cinematic superhero shared universes” (try saying that tongue-twister three times fast).  In 2016 we’ll be seeing two films from the comic company: August gives us the “bad guy team-up tale” Suicide Squad and March brings Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, where audiences will get their first looks at the big-screen versions of Aquaman, the “new” Affleck Batman, and Wonder Woman.  Due in 2017 is a solo outing for Wonder Woman – and thanks to a new DC TV special, we now have our first footage from the film.

Dawn Of Justice hasn’t even been released and it has already been a point of contention, lots of hype and a torrent of fan speculation. Obviously, Warner Bros have a heck of a lot riding on the spanking new DC Movie Universe that they are going to throw at us and it seems like they are already pulling all the stops. Already, the new Suicide Squad trailer is ready to hit the Interwebs and the Cartoon Network animated seriesDC Films Presents: The Dawn of the Justice League is about to prep us for the next big-budget incarnation of the Justice League of America.

In a concerted effort to get the hype-train rolling into full speed, Warner Bros has gone ahead to reveal their concept art for their new Justice League, as well as to present the full roster and look of Earth’s Bravest and Boldest.

With Marvel already dominating the Box Office, it’s no wonder that DC should scramble into action with its next big cross over movie, Batman V Superman-Dawn of Justice. The mere mention of the movie’s development caused untold Internet hype, tipped millions of nerds to the breaking point when Ben Affleck was announced as the new Batman and has some of the more cynical among us worrying whether all this belly aching is going to be even worth it.

The movie promises to be the first step toward the first proper Justice League live action movie. According to the buzz created after the first appearance of Scaleless Doomsday McGee, fans speculate that Batman V Superman might tease into a whole lot of the DC trademark cosmology, all at once. Apparently, their suspicions were well-founded as the movie will indeed introduce another threat to the future Justice League in the form of…

Well, we finally got the new trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and, boy, was it underwhelming. Many fans have been expressing fears about DC rushing into things since the movie was announced. A team-up with Batman already when he hasn’t even been introduced into the DC Extended Universe? Still, fans were with Batman v Superman, because all of the footage seen thus far had looked pretty cool. The showdown between Batman and Superman on a rainy rooftop next to the Bat-signal set up great expectations for the movie. Despite some concerns about casting, Ben Affleck looks to be a very capable and appropriate Batman, bringing to mind Frank Miller’s stocky brawler, which is a Batman we’ve not yet seen on the big screen. Even Jesse Eisenberg, who is a complete departure from any sort of Lex Luthor known to anyone anywhere, didn’t appear to be completely terrible. Unfortunately, it looks as though our willingness to give DC the benefit of the doubt will not be repaid, as the new trailer makes it clear that every bit of interesting and compelling footage from the movie must have been used up already.
