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…)

Shazam!

With production and distribution rights belonging to New Line Cinema and not Warner Bros, the question remains… Is Shazam part of the DC Movie Universe, or not? New Line’s Toby Emmerich made some comments a while back indicating that the character may become a standalone franchise that sits apart from any other built up Universe. But, alas, a new post from DC has now upset the applecart, suggesting that Shazam might actually be part of the DC Universe, alongside Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. So, the ultimate question on our minds now ­– is if the character going to be an active group participant in The Justice League? (more…)

Marvel may be out there releasing dates and information about their up and coming movies for the next 100 years, but DC and Warner Bros. have been mum about most of their newest summer blockbusters. So much so, that it looks like despite the big announcement about bringing her to the big screen, recently announced director Michelle Maclaren says Wonder Woman hasn’t even been  given an official green light yet.

So the amount of faith invested in Warner Bros.’ handling of its DC Comics properties can be measured in a thimble, but that’s not to say there’s no hope at all. As Warners gambles on Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice to establish its own expansive and interconnected universe in one ambitious movie, they also have several follow up projects scheduled for release in 2016 and beyond. One of them, of course, is Wonder Woman, who, as we already know, appears in Batman V. Superman. The solo Wonder Woman film based on the comic about the powerful Amazonian warrior now has a star (Gal Gadot), a director (Michelle MacLaren), and a release date (June 2017), but what it still lacks is a script. Good thing then that the studio is reportedly working on six of them. (more…)
