It’s still a couple of months until the release of Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice, the all important linchpin to the burgeoning DC Comics Cinematic Universe currently under construction. A key component of that launch is the appearance of Wonder Woman played by Gal Gadot, and the internet’s been putting 50/50 odds on whether or not she will be able to stand out as the third leg of DC’s vaunted triad. But ready or not, Gadot is about to stand as Wonder Woman in the character’s first solo feature film. Yup, breaking news today, that after literally decades of development, Wonder Woman is going before the cameras. (more…)
How Does George Miller’s Unmade ‘Justice League: Mortal’ Wonder Woman Stack Up Against Zack Snyder’s ‘BvSDOJ’ Wonder Woman?
After Christopher Nolan nailed it both financially and critically with Batman Begins in 2005, Warner Brothers started looking to expand that success and make more superhero movies based on the DC comic book stable. George Miller (Mad Max: Fury Road) was brought in to put together a team superhero movie, Justice League: Mortal. Well, since you’ve never seen Justice League: Mortal something, or combination of things happened, and the whole thing fell through, never to be made. The production had already done some interesting casting that featured Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Martian Manhunter, the Flash, and others. Thanks to photographer Mark Rogers, now we’ve got a look at what George Miller’s Wonder Woman would have looked like. How does it stack up against Zach Snyder‘s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Wonder Woman? (more…)
While many may have already gotten a glimpse of Gal Gadot in her full Wonder Woman glory, due to ‘Batman v. Superman’, there has been no images of her on-set in the heroine’s stand-alone film; which is currently in production. There is, however, photos of her co-star Chris Pine. Playing the long time man in her life, Steve Trevor, this is the very first look of him on set. The photos also raise questions about the films timeline.
DC‘s DC Super Hero Girls web site is live and has the first two episodes and a music video of the theme song Get Your Cape On. The first thing that comes to mind after watching the first episode is “I am not the target audience” and I think it is important that we all remember this as we watch. Those of you NerdBastards with young daughters and nieces who are the target audience of this new web-based series, what did you and your kids think about it? (more…)
Patty Jenkins. Gal Gadot and Chris Pine. Now you’re up to date on everything about Wonder Woman, Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment‘s next big hill to conquer in terms of its expanded superhero universe. It’s apparently supposed to begin shooting this fall, but there hasn’t been a lot of news about it other than the announcement of a director, and the casting of the film’s titular heroine, who will appear in next year’s Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and her love interest. Most vexing, there isn’t even any absolute certainty about *when* the Wonder Woman is taking place in. Well, as luck would have it, there’s some news about that very subject this morning. (more…)
Apparently, your lunch box is now considered part of your clothing when it comes to some schools. I never realized I was making such a fashion statement in my Captain America lunch box selection. Young Laura probably wasn’t trying to make a statement either when she took her Wonder Woman lunch box to school, but things sometimes have a way of going from simple to “You’ve got to be kidding me” in 60 seconds. Such will be the case of the Too Violent Wonder Woman Lunch Box. (more…)
Even before they had the idea to create a great big interconnected universe of movies, Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have been trying to crack the “Wonder Woman code.” It’s been start and stop for a long time at the studio as they’ve tried to develop a big screen Wonder Woman movie with a long line of various writers and directors each trying to do what shouldn’t be that impossible: make a gosh darn Wonder Woman movie! Well, here’s a positive sign. It seems like Gal Gadot now has a male lead and co-star for her first solo Wonder Woman adventure. Get ready Chris Pine, you’re about to beam up to Paradise Island. (Or possibly crash-land.) (more…)
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…)
The Licensing Expo taking place in Las Vegas is going to be a treasure trove of images for upcoming movies and Zach Snyder‘s Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice has stepped up to the plate with the costumes for Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot). Images are coming out today that show some of the best up-close looks at the costumes we’ve had so far with a detailed look at Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman costume. (more…)
Bad Robot alumni Chris Pine is rumored to be circling one of Warner Brothers most anticipated DC films, Wonder Woman starring Gal Gadot. The DC Cinematic Universe has just barely gotten off the ground, so this could be a great move for Pine to establish himself in the cornerstone role of Steve Trevor! More info after the jump! (more…)
