In just a couple of weeks from today, fans everywhere will be heading into their local multiplexes to check out the latest DC Extended Universe film, Wonder Woman. For many, the appearance of Diana of Themyscira in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice was a rare bright spot in the non-stop dank of Zack Snyder’s film, so hope is high that the first major superhero film headlined by a woman is able to both redeem the DCEU and encourage the production of more female-centric superhero movies. (We hear Batgirl is waiting in the wings.) So you’ll be pleased to know that the early critical mass for Wonder Woman, is overwhelmingly positive. (more…)
We have less than three weeks before the release of Wonder Woman, the DC Extended Universe’s (DCEU) first female solo comic movie (and in fact, the first female-centric superhero movie in general). Even with Wonder Woman not out already, Warner Bros is already looking forward to their future films they have on the horizon. At least two of those will feature female heroines. As expected, we will be seeing a sequel to Wonder Woman. In addition, Joss Whedon will direct a Batgirl film.
With the countdown to the film’s release on now (and the marketing finally starting to pick up the pace,) star Gal Gadot premiered the final trailer for Wonder Woman at the MTV Movie and TV Awards tonight. Will the next film in the DC Extended Universe be the godsend the Warner Bros./DC Films franchises are hoping for? 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…)
We really haven’t heard much from Patty Jenkins‘ Wonder Woman since the trailer a few weeks ago, but last night Warner Bros. dropped a couple new TV spots to help tide us over until the Guardians of the Galaxy hub-bub dies down. Seriously, why bother trying to be heard in all that wonderful Marvel madness, it would be a waste of good money. Now when May 8th hits, expect the Wonder Woman marketing floodgates to open. Until then, we might get a few dribs and drabs and even those look very promising, Patty Jenkins should deliver quite the DC movie, perhaps the best to date. (more…)
This June a legend 75 years in the making arrives on the big screen. The Amazonian warrior princess Wonder Woman is set, if the hype is to be believed, to conquer the box office. The latest trailer custom designed to designed to whip that hype up into a frothy fervor debuted tonight, taking Diana from a little princess to the warrior destined to defend the world. (more…)
In a few months, we will receive the fourth DC Extended Universe (DCEU) film, Wonder Woman. The period film focuses on the Amazon princess (Gal Gadot) as she meets Steve Trevor (Chris Pine), the first man she has ever seen, when he washes ashore the island of Themyscira. Warning her and her people of the events of World War I, she leaves her home to help stop the global conflict. This will be the first superhero movie headlined by a woman, and the buzz is high for this upcoming film.
Expectations are high for Wonder Woman, and not just because Warner Bros. is hoping that she might right the ship in terms of the studios’ efforts to correct widespread critical disinterest and mixed fan reaction to the DC Expanded Universe. Of course, people are just generally looking forward to seeing the first superhero movie led a solo superheroine, which is maybe why we’ve gotten this new cover art for the subscribers of Empire magazine. It’s a very flattering picture of Gal Gadot, and it seems to portend that sunny days are on the horizon, and maybe not just for the Amazonian warrior princess. (more…)
Whether your were a fan of Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad or not, a lot of people were hoping that 2017 might be a clean slate for Warner Bros., DC Entertainment and the DC Extended Universe. There are two new items up for bids this year – Wonder Woman and Justice League – and while the latter is still an artifact of Zack Snyder’s influence, the former’s got new blood in the form of Patty Jenkins, not to mention the fact that it features one of the more popular aspects of BvS: Gal Gadot‘s Amazonian warrior. And that’s why it’s so difficult to announce the following… (more…)
Sources have confirmed the main villain in the upcoming Wonder Woman film will be Ares, the God of Conflict. Although trailers have revealed most of the action appearing to take place on the battlefields of World War I, speculation has abounded that the Amazon superheroine would have a more formidable, super-powered rival in her solo big screen debut. Although actor Danny Huston has been cast as an antagonist of some kind, it’s unclear whether or not he and Ares, one of her primary antagonists from the comic books, will be one and the same or perhaps one working in service of the other.
